Hi Everyone!! I have so neglected my blog. Life takes over and it's so hard to find the time. In between trying to make my trees my grandson started preschool and we have to transport him back and forth. But it's all worth it because he loves it. My son surprised me with a puppy in April. I swore I wasn't going to have another dog after my Mia passed away two years ago. It's just so hard when they get old and leave you. She is greatly missed. So my new little dog is a maltipoo and quite a character. She is 7 months old now and keeps me very busy. She is always by my side and my assistant in my workroom while I'm painting.
I have been working on my Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Gingerbread trees the last few months. I will be starting on my Santa and snowman trees this week. I'm so happy when I get the time and especially a whole day to be in my workroom painting.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'm hoping I can spend more time here on my blog. I'm going to post a few pictures of the trees I have made recently and of course my puppy Coco.

The Easter Bunnies On His Way!!!!

Happy Saturday Everyone!!! It's hot here this weekend. It's been in the 90's and it's going to stay hot for awhile. I hate putting the central air on already in March. There goes the electric bill. I painted a few of my boxes with handles this week. I'm trying to paint things up that I have had and are taking up room in my work space. You know how that goes. I have

been painting up my gourd eggs that I put in the containers. It's fun arranging all the little bunnies and baby chicks. I painted some with a saltbox house theme and others with a spring theme. You can change whats inside the containers to suit the season. I hope you all have a great weekend and stay cool or warm depending on where you live. Here are some pictures of the things I have been painting. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Saint Patrick's Day:)

Hi Everyone!!! Hope your all having a good weekend. It's been awhile since I have posted. I had a few health issues since November. I had to have gallbladder surgery but I'm doing great now and back working on my projects. I started working on my spring collection which included wooden containers with hand painted gourd eggs and some Easter trees. I also started on my sets of wooden firecrackers. I have had more time to paint because my grandson started going to school a few days a week so that gives me more time in the workroom. I have some painted firecrackers listed on Ebay and Etsy and a Easter tree listed on Ebay. Here are some pictures of my recent work. Thanks so much for stopping by!!!! Denise

Trees Trees Everywhere!!!!!

Hi Everyone!!! Hope your all having a good weekend!! It has been a while since I last posted. It seems like it gets harder and harder to get the time to keep in touch. We have had a lot going on at my house. My FIL has been in a nursing home for over a year and his health got progressively worse and he passed away two weeks ago. My MIL has been living with us since he was put in a nursing home for about a year and a half. We couldn't let her live by herself being she is 94. I also babysit my grandson three days a week, so needless to say my time is very limited. I have managed to make my trees for the Holiday's. Every chance I get I'm in my workroom painting away. I'm posting some pictures of the trees I have done in the last few weeks and also some that are listed on Ebay and Etsy. Now that things have calmed down a little bit I'm hoping I'll be able to post more and keep in touch. Hope you all have a great week and a creative one!!

Good Enough To Eat !!!!!

Hope everyone had a good weekend!!!! Can you believe it's September already. This is when the months really fly by with all the holidays coming up. Of course it doesn't feel like September here in California. For over a week now the temperature as been in the triple digits. Not good!!! Even thou it's been so hot I managed to finish my first Gingerbread tree of the season. I made my little salt dough gingerbread men and painted them to hang on the tree. I put the 24 inch tree in a red enamel colander. It's full of festive decorations. There are kitchen utensils, candies, and different berry picks. Here are some pictures of the finished product. I also have it listed on Ebay. Have a great day and enjoy the rest of your holiday!! Denise:)
