Happy Memorial Day

I know to many of us Americans, Memorial Day symbolizes the first "official" day of Summer! But, please take the time to remember them that have served and are still serving our Country to keep us safe & Free!

By Your Hands Giveaway

By Your Hands is having this great giveaway.  If you are are sewer of dolls you won't want to miss out on this.
Well I have been finishing up some orders  and thought I'd share them with you.  First is a lady that wanted these gingers done in light lavender.  It must have been a gingerbread week because I had another order for this little ginger sitter in Williamsburg Blue.
I thought I'd give you a tip that I came upon while I left my drybrush with paint in it from  last night.  I thought I had ruined it so I thought how mush easier it was to wash my hands with hot soap and water and maybe it would work for my brush.  So I ran it under some hot water and the paint clumped on my brush.  I then used a sponge that has the teflon scrubbie on it and ran it across it.  Came out just like it was new.
Well I have to go do some listing on Etsy.  See you soon.

Here is the little bunny that I made for a dear friend of mine.  She wanted it done in purples.  Sorry she is sold but anyone wanting one can email me and order one in their special colors.
I found this nifty clock at the Goodwill and painted it black and  painted a Terrye French design on it.  I put all new clockworks in it.
Next is this file box painted with another Terrye French design of a raggedy annie, sheep and gingerbread.And last, but more to come, is this Americana plaque  for July 4th and summer.  It too has a Terrye French design.  I love painting her designs best of all.
Well that's it for now have to finish up a special order of gingerbreads I have ordered.  You will be able to find these items in my Etsy shop.  I also have a link on my blog that will take you there.  Have a nice eveing everyone.

I'm Back....

I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted to this blog.  I'm sorry to say I haven't been feeling very well.  My back has been giving me some problems and I couldn't sit for very long.  And then my blood sugars were all over the place (I'm diabetic) and then to top it off I dropped a x-large jar of mayonnaise on my big toe.  Good thing I had my shoes on but it still hurts like the dickens.  In between the times I felt good I managed to get some painting done and will have them up on my blog when I finish taking the pictures, made a bunny for a friend and another doll by SMF.  Yesterday I made a Santa make do but I don't know when I will be posting that.   Might wait til  it gets closer to July.  I'm trying to have a Christmas in July happening in my Etsy shop.  We'll see how much I can get done.  I'm just going to have to take better care of my health, like not sitting to long on a project, get up and stretch and get more than 4 hours of sleep.  After all I'm no longer a spring chick no matter what my brain tells me.  Anyway gotta go, pictures will come soon.
