Sold out

 Well, almost sold out. Yesterday was Art in the Park and as a member of the Rogue River Artists Association, I participated. It was a hot summer day and crowds filled the park. 

I started set up at 6 am because I was also helping visiting artists unload and set up. 

My thanks to everyone stopped by and admired especially to those who made a purchase. 

These two paintings went to new homes!

My card rack has about 10 cards left on it

And I sold almost 20 Christmas ornaments. 

I am taking today to relax then it is back to work painting more for the November show. 

My sincere thank yous to everyone who made a purchase. It truly made my day! 

Thank you for visiting and for your kind words.

I scrapped!

 I actually scrapped! It has been so long and I am getting farther and farther behind. Or it is just that there are so many new memories with the grandkids, that I want to scrap. 

Jen and Lauren have matching bathing suits which they wore at the cottage in northern Michigan. 

The following contain affiliate links. 

I used Echo Park available at

Lauren also started Kindergarten 

She was so excited and couldn't wait to go back the next day!

Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words!

What happened to July?

 Have I really not posted since June?? Wow, what happened to summer? 

The grandkids were here the last week of June and we spent the majority of the time at the cottage. Swim, sand, fish, repeat. That pretty much sums up the week:) Being from Phoenix they are used to swimming in a pool but had no problems getting right in the lake. And Miss Lauren is not afraid of worms or fish. She did want to keep the fish in a bucket and she named them:) 

After they left, my husband had his hip replaced. So I have been moving the yard with the push mower and helping with his recovery. He is slowly getting back up to speed but I am still mowing, etc.

I have been getting ready for an art show/sale this weekend. I have about 6 dozen cards as well as other original pieces. It is our town's sidewalk sales so there should be good crowds. Here are three of my cards. 

Here are some of the larger pieces

I hope you have been enjoying the past month. Thank you for stopping by and for your kind words.

Happy June!

 June is here - already! This month is my son's birthday and my 47th wedding anniversary. Yikes! 

We have been busy getting the cottage all set for summer fun. The boat and jet ski are ready. The grandchildren will be here the last week of June. Before then we will be hosting caddies for the local LPGA tournament. 

I did manage to complete a few thank you cards. 

The first one was something different with a palette knife. Other two are watercolors. 

Thank you for visiting! And thank you for your kind words. I truly appreciate them.

Where has the Time Gone!

 My goodness May is flying by! 

We were back in Phoenix for a week and a half to celebrate our grandson's third birthday! We had a train come to the house and give kids rides around the neighborhood. It was quite a sight! He is all about trains and was very excited with this surprise. 

I have been working on painting cards but yesterday got out some acrylic paints to play. I had an idea in my head but I am not sure I achieved what I wanted. I used 4 wood panels to create a sunflower or that was my idea. I used Flowtrol and silicone oil to achieve cells. 

I do love the effect I was able to get in the red. 

I hope each of you enjoys a healthy and happy weekend! 

Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your kind words.
