My first post on my new blog... and am totally speechless... now for anyone that knows me that will have them laughing.. That beautiful little girl with me in the picture is my granddaughter Chaya... the best present I've ever had and being an Amma is the greatest thing ever..and I am so lucky that I get to spend a lot of time with her.
There will be a little of everything on here..my first love is painting and especially on upcycled things.. love to take an old coffee pot or jug and make it something special again..I do a lot of sales through out the year but it's getting into that busy Christmas time season so the pressure is on.. but I soooo love paper too.. I learned how to Quill (the art of paper filigree) a few years ago and it still amazes me what you can do with it.. then a good friend Les.. introduced me to Altered art and ATC's...
Now one of the reasons that I started this was because on Facebook you can't run a contest or have a giveaway and when I was cleaning out the proverbial "stash" to get some bowls to paint.. I thought wow! this would be a great idea for a contest.. because I was so shocked (not sure why) at the number of small wooden salad bowls that have accumulated since last Christmas's painting season..(other painters with "stash" will not be very shocked and will wonder why I was too..lol) but I will leave that for tomorrow..once I figure out how to post it and do a couple more things on here..
Thanks for stopping in..and hope you'll come back..
