Hi there everyone! I hope that all who celebrate it had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was absolutely lovely. Daniel and I hosted at our house this year and it was such a fun day surrounded by family.

 I wanted to let you all know that I am doing a sale in my shop today through Monday--20% off everything! This will be my last sale this year. I just couldn't resist joining in on all the sale fun ;) Just make sure to use coupon code HOLIDAY11 when you check out to get your discount. This is good for originals, things already on sale, everything! Just a little thank you to all of you for making the year so great :)

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!!

Lulu and Ginger

Here is "Lulu and Ginger", my first Christmas painting of the year! I decided to go for some bangs on this girl, I hope you like them :) I have one or two more holiday paintings planned. I am also hoping to get some postcards made of one of them, if I can get them in time! As usual, I wish I had started earlier :)

I hope you are all having a lovely Friday, and have a fun weekend!

The Blue Rose

Hi there everyone! Here is a new 8"x10" painting I finished yesterday, "The Blue Rose." I got the idea from a mystery novel I was reading having to do with a blue rose. It is available in my etsy shop.

Here are a few more things I have been up to lately: "Snow White and Rose Red" (speaking of fairy tales has anyone else been watching the show Once Upon A Time? I absolutely love it!),

A Ginger the Cat handpainted paper mache box,

And three little kitties on wooden plaques, Kiki, Ginger and Rosebud! I am happy to say that these three have found homes already, but the rest are available in my shop :)

I have been in the mood to do some baking lately. I made some pumpkin buttermilk scones the other day and I am thinking I will try a pecan pie next :)

I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

The Song Bird

I have a new painting in the shop, "The Song Bird." I painted this one on a 7"x9" wooden plaque. Wood can be such a nice change from canvas now and again, I love the smooth texture :)

I also listed a handpainted Hoots the Owl box a couple of days ago. I just love painting these little paper mache boxes.

I am in the mood to paint some little kitties today, so there should be another box and some little wooden plauques coming to the shop soon! I am enjoying a nice quiet day today, painting and listening to a book on CD :) I hope that you are all well and are having a lovely Friday!
