with our son and his family ..building memories.
 So I jumped right in to start on Valentines day. Did up my Three Tired Tray with some vintage valentine boxes, beautiful art work by some very talented ladies and a few sweets. 


Spent some time creating some lovely lavender sachets.

a decor piece that doubles as a pin ,great for a scarf,hat,purse or on your jacket.

a sweet hanging 

a of course a Key to my Heart.
These and more now available in my Etsy store.

Club House is Finished

Entrance to the Clubhouse 
at Life Church
I started this project over a year and a half ago. 
The clubhouse room got put on hold until we 
could figure out how to do the three walls that have sound boards on them. 

This is right before you enter the clubhouse
This jeep was cut in half and attached to the wall. 
I painted in the rest. 
The kids Love to sit in it and have their picture taken.
This is the first wall you see when you enter the clubhouse. 
Its made to look like your standing inside of a tree with the railings all around.
 I painted the animals to look like they are looking over the railings.
This is the front wall I had to do this on canvas because of the sound boards.
 Did I tell you how big this room is?
28 feet tall by 60 feet wide on the longest walls.
The right side of the room. Desert Vistas 
The back wall done on canvas. 
See the elephant peeking over the back railing!

This picture is a little washed out. 
Some Rhinos and zebras running across the plains.
 A close up of the watering hole with cape buffalo. and hippos.
It feels Great to be done with this job. 
and the best part is the Kids Love it.

Happy Halloween Skellies


Recently  I hosted our Designing Diva club meeting in my studio. We had a spooktacular time creating goolie spoolies. I should have taken photos of the finished pieces.
As a little Treat I made these skellies for each of the ladies. All had its own personality.
From a mermaid skellie, wicked witch skellie to a princess skellie they were fun to make and fun to give to my dear friends.
Hope you all have a Happy Halloween.

Long time no post

Hi bloggers, such a long time since I posted last. a lot has been going on in our lives.
The most important is my hubby is very sick so I've been taking time off work to spend my time with him. Its bitter sweet. We could use all the prayers we could get right now.
On another note my son got a transfer to be closer to home. He will be moving to Washington very soon so I get to see my Grand babies much more often. They grow up so fast.
They are in the process of trying to buy their first home and have decided on Farm style as their decor.
 So of course I had to help them out. With the help of Pinterest I made a few new things for their place.
Can't wait to see them all. Hope your having a Good summer!!!!
