New Venture!

Good morning all you bloggers...
Well I have been a busy little bee...This past Easter weekend, (Thank you Lord for Easter or I would still be burried in sin) Saturday to be exact, I prepared for my garden. This is out first garden here so you can imagine the work we had to do. Removing Sod with a pic ax is no fun. I tell you I was so sore Sunday but I still got Easter dinner ready and Easter eggs. Well the garden is ready to plant after all that work. Now if it would let up on the rain and we could have a super warm day so I can make my rows for my wonderful vegetables and fruits. I will be making some home made salsa once I get my tomatos, peppers and onions up and out of the ground. So who else is planting a garden this year? What is your favorite thing that comes from the garden....I have so many I don't know where to start...But I guess if I had to choose it would be the BIG FAT JUICY TOMATOS! I love them. I will also be planting me some gourds since I cannot find them here in Nebraska..At least not advertised.
Well for my new "Venture" I have a new muse and he has kind of changed my views of painting. I will post a pic of him (also in my garden) so you can see why I have gone in a different direction. I am sure I will revert back to my Prim style painting but I just enjoy painting these cute happy little pictures. As he grows I am sure it will pass. But it sure is fun right now. Have any of you ever ventured off the beaten path? Right now my enjoyment is Jungle Babies, Leapin Ladybugs, Tute little Birdies, Owls, Dinosaurs, Oh the possibilities are endless...for baby nurserys. It's amazing how children change your creative thinking. Well I will post some pics of my new adventures and my new Muse! Have a wonderful day and let's get planting...:) and Painting! You will see him in the last picture in the garden! Love kiddos!

Saturday night blog!

I just wanted to pop in here and see what everyone is doing? I am just craving some sunshine....we got a little taste of it a couple of weeks ago and well now it's snowing...blah! But that is okay it is whatever comes and I am blessed enough to enjoy another day.
Today was a good day. No, no painting that would of made it a GREAT day! But I did some needed rest and relaxation. I went to a Memorial this morning to honor one of the fallen whom received a Silver Star. It was an enlightening moment sorrowful but celebratory in the same token. It reminds me of the fallen from the beginning of time whom have given their lives so we can be free. Starting with Jesus Christ and still going through time with many many more. But the greatest was Jesus and we will soon be celebrating his greatest gift to us all. John 3:16. So let's take a moment to remember all of the heroes whom have given their lives so that we can be free. Past, present, and future. Thank God for Jesus and for our military. God Bless and have a wonderful evening.
My next post will be of what I am doing...I will share my pictures of Leapin Ladybugs and Sweet Giraffes. Hugs to all!

Good Sunday morning!

Hello all! Hope you are have a gread Sunday. I would just like to take a moment and think about all the suffering around the world, not only in Japan but all over. My heart aches for the loss in Japan it is such a tragedy. I cannot imagine the loss or the pain they feel. I would like to say a prayer for them and ask the Lord to wrap his arms around the people and comfort them in this horrific time. These are trying times across the world, the fighting in the Middle East, the fires and flooding in America, Lord just wrap us in your Love and protect us. Amen.
If we could all just take the time to spread some kindness to those whom surround us even strangers. Just a little hello and how are you today. It is a blessing to wake up each morning and we are never promised tomorrow. So remind people that life is worth living and how lucky we are to still be alive. Even in tragedy something good will come. So today I am just going to say Hello and you are loved. John 3:16. He knows each and every hair on your head. God Bless and have a wonderful day.

Ready for Spring

Good morning ladies and bloggers! It is flurrying outside and well I am just ready for some beautiful spring flowers, and sunshine...I don't know about you guys.
With that said craft fairs are starting and I am ready to get out and mingle with some like-minded folks. I have been painting up a storm and have wondered into another area besides primitives and home decor for adults. I have been painting pictures for little childrens rooms and I have to say it is fun and rewarding. I have to say that my little grandson was an influence on that. I am hoping that others like my new venture as well. I will post some pics of the new items. I am thinking that I might sell some on Etsy we shall see. I have Craft fair March 12, 2011 and would like to take them with me. My next show is at Northwest Highschool if anyone is in the Omaha area.
So is anyone planning on a garden? If so when do you start your indoor seeds? I am planning on a garden and can't wait to till up the dirt. I am going to take my little helper out with me, he loves the outdoors and even though he is little still he likes to help. He's a smart little booger...I hope he keeps those traits and continues to be a helper in the future...and Mimaw is still cool in the future. Well just wanted to say good morning and let everyone know that I am still painting and not as distracted with other things I am totally focused on painting and loving it! Have a wonderful day and God bless you all!
