Watermelons, Art and Pure Happiness

Its the middle of May and Summer is right around the corner!
One of the many things I get excited about is seedless watermelons
so this cute sign for sale in my ETSY shop celebrates my Ode to the watermelon!
I am taking this awesome Bible study
"One in a Million"
 I made decorated cookies for all the ladies the week of Easter.
I'm not a seasoned cookie decorator...but I have so much fun :)

I participated in Third Friday in April
 here is my little Art booth
Something fun to try
I normally don't post pics of myself but Had to show you my cute Betsey Johnson
purse I got at Ross Dress For Less...Love it!
 
I also finally found some true blue self adhesive vinyl to make my
"I Do" shoe stickers I sell them in my ETSY shop at a great price and each order contains two sets
My beautiful Mother's Day roses from my son...love him 
My pretty purple clematis in bloom
This is the porch seat my husband made from recycled wood
I painted it white and bought the cushions and pillows for it...love the green and white
A wood Happy Summer watermelon wreath you can purchase in my ETSY shop
so cute to welcome guest in the Summer 
and a funky All American chicken for that patriotic person
also for sale in my ETSY shop 
Just little updates from my life...loving being back in Alabama

Moving, Art and Chevron Crosses

Hello friends! I have been busy getting my house ready to put on the market
and now that it is listed I'm back in the workshop cutting and creating

I am moving to Alabama when my house sells... the area I am moving to has "third Fridays" it is a time on the third Friday of each month that artist gather in the downtown to sell their art along the square with bands playing, food and fun!

I made these wood crosses with a chevron pattern and a burlap heart
I am so excited to relocate to an area that has fun opportunities each month for their local artist. 
I'm still waiting on Spring and the warm sunshine.
When I purchase my new home I will be sharing DIY projects on my website as well as doing some DIY youtube videos.
Have a great Day!!!

Art Room and New hobby!

 Hello Friends! Hope your New Year is going Fabulous!
Here are some more pics of my recent art room redo
I'm loving my faux fireplace and my metal strip for hanging cards
 Spooky is enjoying her kitty cat bed under my little thrift shop table I found
I added casters to it so I could easily move around the room
 The cute crocheted garlands come from one of my favorite ETSY shops
VeryCute
 Lots of bins for organizing and shelves for storing 
 The computer is all set up and ready for working
 My $2 heart tree just makes me smile ;)
 A cute cherry kitty I made 
 And my newest hobby i'm loving....
 crocheting infinity scarves with big cozy yarn
I love making these and with this cold weather its a very useful craft, too!
Hope you are staying warm and dreaming of Spring flowers

Happy New Year!

Its almost 2014 and I have been getting ready for a new year...
I made a new art room upstairs here is a peek ;)
Ill post more pics after the New Year

I've also started painting on canvas again
This painting is for sale in my ETSY shop
I love drawing designs on wood and cutting them out
but I want to do more canvas art in 2014 

and speaking of my ETSY shop...
here is my new logo stamp I ordered from 
Vista Print
The vase with flowers I painted in one of my Canvas Cafe Classes above
has become my official logo
I love it!

and this kitty is also an original remake from a sign I painted
also for sale in my ETSY shop

As New Years Day approaches it is especially meaningful
 because it is the birthday of my son!
So as 2013 closes out, I reflect on the many events that occurred
some awesome, some strange and some life changing...
But with 2014 ahead...I know great things are in store...
So, with this I leave you one of my favorite sayings:
"In a world where you can be anything...
be Yourself!"
Happy New Year!

Christmas time's a coming!

Its cold and looking like Christmas here in Tennessee

The decorations are up

And Spooky my cat is ready for the holidays!

I like a mixture of all kinds of cheerful, whimsical and not always matching
holiday decor

Signs everywhere and homemade folk art decorations
 
This green tree I made for my Mom
I was first inspired by a tree I saw in
Cracker Barrel

This tree I made for me
these are fun to make and I used wood scraps and things I already
had to make them both

but I still wanted a my white tree with lights
I love it at  night with all the lights in the room off
its so cozy
I've also been busy making treats for my family
and neighbors
This year I made mini Christmas Cakes

It is a pound cake recipe with a vanilla lemon glaze
I added a cherry for a Christmasy touch
I found the boxes at Wal mart last year after Christmas
I made the labels with my label maker
also from Wal Mart

and this cake monster I made for Thanksgiving
Homemade Coconut Cake

December is also my birthday month
this wreath was a gift from my Mom
I admired it at Pineapples a shop in the
Decatur Alabama Mall
she was listening and surprised me with it!
It makes me sooo Happy :)

Pretty flower arrangement from my husband
he gets all my special occasion flowers from
Paula Kelly  Florist
The little gem picks in the flowers are my birthstone
and if you look closely the greenery on the right is shaped like a heart
They are just that Awesome!!!!
Hope you have a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year!!!
thanks for dropping by
Ho Ho Ho ya'll!
