Well I gave up on bingo. Maybe next time. I have finished a lantern. I haven't decided if I want to put it on Ebay or Etsy? What do you think. I am going to post a pic of it. Let me know your opinions as well of the lantern.

Just letting you guys know i'm working on a website. I don't know how long these things take. But i'm trying to get one done so people can have access to my work. I am also gonna get on Etsy here someday. So be looking for updates. Remember I have a piece in the February issue of Create and Decorate which hits the stands in December. I also have a piece in the April issue which comes out in February. Be looking for them. I will keep you posted.

Wednesday! Whoohoo!

It's getting closer to the weekend. I am excited I am going to get to paint some more. Has anyone thought about Bingo? Just checking. Don't forget to put your name on the list just leave me a comment so i'll know. I haven't figured out what i'm going to paint. How about an Snowman gourd ornament? Or some wooden tags? Those are cute. I'll look for a pic and you guys let me know if you wanna play. There will be 30 words and i'll list a few each day. I'll pull them out of a hat. Let's get a game going. If you win how bout you choose? I'll do 3 wooden hang tags, and I'll do one gourd ornament and you pick.

Have a good day!

Fun Fun Fun Bingo Anyone?

Good morning to my fellow artists and bloggers, woops noon. HeHe. I have fervently been painting on my submission this morning. I think the hardest part is doing the instructions. I have a giant pad of paper on my paint table which as I go along I write down the instructions. Then after all is said and done I try to decipher them and put them on my computer. I have five items that I am painting. They consists of the more Primitive New England style. I so wish I could share with you. But I can't you'll just have to check out the magazine. Remember to get the February issue in December of Create and Decorate to see my project in that one. It's a fun project and very useful.

Let's play a game. Would you guys be interested in Bingo? Maybe for a PRIZE? How about the prize being something hand painted from me. I'll think of something and post the idea and then we'll play BINGO and whom ever wins gets the item? All whom would like to play send me a comment and I will give it a week and then I'll post a list of words, you pick your words then email me with your list. Then we will commence the Bingo Game! Sound like fun? We play in my ebay group and it's a blast. How about a word jumble for today. No prize just something for funsies to get us in the mood.

Time gets away from Us!

I am sorry I have been missing in action. Life gets in the way sometimes of the things that we love so much. I haven't been much of a painter lately. I did get my submision in for Create and Decorate on time. Now I am trying to beat another deadline, I have till October 1st. I was searching google with my name and low and behold there were many spots mentioning my name. I almost feel guilty because I have been away so long. Sometimes we just have to focus on our passion and go with it no matter what anyone says. I have just lost my focus always trying to please others and not following my passion. Here lately there have been many reminders of what my passion is and to follow it well here I am trying to get back on track. Thank you all for supporting me and reading my blog. It means so much to me. Never let go of your dreams, they were instilled in us for a reason. Thanks again.

God Bless All!
