I enjoy painting, too, and belong to a local painting club. The club decided that it's members should have a way to store the handouts and notes that we get during the meetings and classes that we attend. They provided us with these 3-ring binders and left it up to each of us how we wanted to paint and personalize the binder. This is the one I did. The letters are the beginning of each word in the name of the club. We call it SMRDA for short. I worked on it for the past 4 days and am really pleased with it. I had so much fun painting it and am glad that I've been able to take some time to paint again. It's been a while since I have.
