There I was just a painting away the past few weeks

Hello to all! my blog is kind of working now, so I am sharing a couple of things I have gotten done in the past few weeks. I have gone back to my roots and have begun painting on canvas again and drawing on water color paper. I am still working on my dolls and will have to post my new bunch of dolls sometime next week. On the canvas I am using my oil based acrylics with a bit of water and paint brushes, the picture is all my very own of a little girl scarecrow and the horses running in the river are my own ides The little painted plate celebrates fall time, and I am busy working on Halloween items! I am having lots of fun doing it! I can't wait to show you all what I have painted!!!

what' ya Working on for Tuesday, August 3 2015

Today I thought I would share what I am working on, which is some embroidery work.  I loved doing embroidery when I was a young girl mostly the stamped work.  So a few days back I was in JoAnn's and found some really cute stamped embroidery, cotton dish towels, floss, and a hoop.  I plan on staining the towels after I finish the work and putting them in my Etsy store.  Oh I forgot to tell you all I now have 3 Etsy stores, the third one will be showcasing all my artwork that can be downloaded to use for quilting, paper crafts, pillows etc.
Yes I am behind the camera holding the hoop with the work that has been done so far.  I will talk more in my next post about my new store and share some of the art work I have created for it.

What I have been Working on Wendsday 2015

Good morning, yes I have been away for some time now, there is so much going on around me, new grandbaby who is actually not so new she is now five months a temple wedding coming up in March and working on the house getting it ready to sell.  I also I have another new store in way; its at café press and that is where I am adding all my digital art work. 
These are some of the drawings I have been working on, I have created the art work in Sharpie pen and added some digital effects to make them look vintage, grubby or just very old looking.   Here is a link to where you can see more of my designs for café press
I have also done a bit of house cleaning in my Etsy stores, most was donated for Christmas and the rest was donated to Goodwill.

Still Alive!

Boy I am truly sorry it has been quite some time since my last post and so much has happened!  New grand baby, my son leaving home and moving away, and traveling to take my son a car being that his truck barely got him to Provo Utah.
We took my son our classic car so that he can get around as his truck broke down and needs lots of repairs!  So today I am just sharing a few pictures of that trip and the car we took him.  Utah was just beautiful and we crossed 4 state lines in 2 days, lost 2 tires on the truck! and got back home with a whole $ 9.00!  That car my son is standing in front of is a rare car!

New Grand Baby and What I am working on for Tuesday Sept 16, 2014

Daddy, Joey and Zoey and below is grandpa holding Zoey!
Love this picture of grandpa and Joey with the new baby!

Good morning to all! I hope you have a wonderful day!
I have been quite busy with my daughter having her second child another little girl named Zoey! Welcome Zoey!
She was born Sept 2, 2014 and weighed 6 pounds 11 ounces and 18 inches long
Right now she is doing well at home and has lots of love around her.  The pictures I am sharing are of Joey, daddy and grandpa holding Zoey.

Yesterday I was teaching me how to make felt flowers and the flower is a blue rose I was creating and teaching myself.  I think I will give a tutorial on how I did this rose a little later on and maybe I show how to make a different flower I have a few ideas running around in my head for creating felt flowers.  This one is one you could tie around your wrist I am using felt and ribbon, thread and a heavy duty glue.    I have my stores closed for a bit because I need to help a little with the grand baby and my son will be leaving and moving away so I have to help a little there also, it has been a little tough the past few weeks as its been very dry here on the Oregon coast which I think this is the driest summer I have seen since I move here in 1985.  Its been so dry there has been no work for my husband and son and I can't believe I have actually been hoping and praying for rain! yikes!  Why do I say yikes well winters here is nothing but rain, rain, rain, and more rain.  I have loved the hot summer here but it does come with a few set backs.  I am doing a vote for yea or nay on a tutorial on how to make this felt rose just leave a comment in the comments  and I might even pick someone to win the felt rose! if I get lots of comments!
