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.

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.
