New year, new things!
I have opened an Etsy shop! Please take a moment to check it out!
It’s been a while, but for several years in a row I gave my sister a gift basket for her birthday and/or Christmas. After she took her goodies home she would give me the basket back to refill the following year. Well, the basket has sat empty in my basement the last couple years as we (my daughters) found something else for their Sosh.
This year I made her a little something to put in that basket! She has recently started drinking wine, so I made her a set of painted wine glasses and a set of wine glass charms. Added in 2 bottles of wine, some chocolate, a Starbucks gift card and a baby T-Rex (she LOVES the T-Rex)!
I never thought to take a pic of the filled basket but here’s a pic of one of the glasses and the wine charms.

Heart wine glass charms
I had a lot of fun painting her glasses…so I had to make one for myself! Did you think it would be anything besides softball? 🙂
I’m slowly adding colors to my glass paint collection…I’ve found just one more thing I love to do! 🙂 Stay tuned as I’m sure there will be more glasses coming…
Ah, hello, it’s been awhile (what else is new? lol). Ok, I’ve got a ton to report!! 🙂 Today I’m sharing my paintings- these have all been done in the past few months.
Hopefully I’ll get everything else posted soon- I’ve been busy getting ready for Christmas. More to come on that soon!!
Here’s a couple of my favorites; please see my art work gallery to see the rest!

Shades of Blue 16×20
Starry dream 11×14
#3- Create. I love to create. I’ve always like to draw, paint, take pictures and make crafts, but my last 2 years of high school I really got into painting. My senior year art class- we were supposed to create 12-16 pieces for our portfolios…I had 43 done by June! This painting is in honor of all that I learned that year!
#2 in the series. We all need to remember to relax and just breathe! Life gets busy, kids get crazy, but always remember to make time for those important in your life- your family, your friends, and yourself! This painting is dedicated to Chris, a great friend who always has time to chat and is just a wonderful lady…and who printed up all my letters for me! 🙂
#2 Just Breathe
You may remember the 8×10 canvas “Imagine” I did back in February (if not, take a look at my art gallery!). Well, this inspired me to start a new series of paintings. Yesterday evening a great friend made me lots of letters with her Cricut machine and today I got to work.
This first painting, acrylic on a 16×20 canvas, is titled “Shades of Pink for HOPE” and is dedicated to my cousin, Sharon, who is a ‘cancer warrior’. For those battling cancer and those that have beat it… here’s a little HOPE for you!
#1 Shades of Pink for HOPE
Today I had the rare opportunity to spend a couple hours in my room with little interuption. I got caught up on my ATC FUN swaps and tried a couple “mini” ATCs- one is 1/2 the size (1×3) and the other business card size. I have a lot of cards that I received from VistaPrint so I used those! Here are a few, please see my ATC gallery for more of todays work!
These are my business cards. I stuck them to contact paper to keep them together and painted them with gesso and acrylic
This is a book mark that I made for a mingle in the FUN group
One of my minis- I liked them so much I had to make one for myself!
