A Painting Frenzy Friday I will go projects I have been finishing up on for my Store

This week I just have been in worst painting frenzy! I love doing the hand painted plates so much that I have also these cute ceramic dispensers to paint and some bowls to paint.  I know.... I should be working on mother's day projects and I will.. I will it's just sometimes the love for Halloween comes out at the strangest time.  Thus the reason for the Frankenstein soap dispenser and the black cat hand painted plate.  But 2 of the projects are not about Halloween rather one is a hand painted bowl with the nursery story of Little Bo Peep and the other bowl is for inspiring ourselves to never give up! I took a quote from one my most favorite LDS members and hand painted a sweet picture to go with it.  Everything was painted by hand using no patterns just my ability to draw a little.  I love using my oil based acrylics! I just love the brightness while painting with them.  I am also baking everything in the oven also makes the paint brighter.  Baking in my oven is how I seal my painted plates I finding the more paint I need to use then the longer the plate needs to bake at 250 degrees, for instance the black cat had to bake a good hour because I used several coats of paint for the cat and the pumpkins.  This is only a few of the many I have finished this week and what I am working on for Friday!

JoJo is Turning a Year old April 30th

Gosh! its hard to believe a whole year has gone by and my little princess is going to be a year old!  I love that I am a grandmother I love my little princess so much she has over come so much in little life so far, there will one big hurdle another operation in a year or two for plastic surgery on the burns that are on her arm and back.  I hope the kids she meets when school comes are not cruel to her and instead have compassion  over the burn scars.  I pray often for her and ask for many blessings.  I just had to share the Easter ones of us out doors on the Easter egg hunt in Astoria Oregon, I loved the pretty little dress and the way mommy had done her hair up.  It was a beautiful day for an Easter egg hunt and yes I will be sharing pictures of her birthday with you all.  Time marches so fast now....
