New Tote Giveaway!!

Here is my second attempt to block print on a tote bag. I like how this turned out, and after the suggestion of my daughter, I added a border around the flower. The border gives it that special finished look to compliment the flower. I am so happy the way it turned out I decided to have a giveaway. Let me know what type of items you would carry if you had this tote.

Post your comment by next Wed. 4pm EST. I will announce the winner later that evening!

Summer Fun

I wanted to show you the beginning stages of my work, which is a vignette of all the yummy foods that we enjoy during the summer months. I will show you once I complete it. Have a great day!

Matilda's Cottage

I had the pleasure of finally getting to visit Matilda's Enchanted Cottage nestled just outside the city of Alpharetta. This charming gallery is a favorite of many locals in the suburb just north of the Atlanta area. Mary Jane is one of the owners, and has been featured on HGTV's Dream Home 2005 and Atlanta Home Magazine. The gallery is filled with folk, and delightfully whimsical art.

I like how the owners think outside the box as far as marketing to the community. They have music every Friday and Saturday night in their back lawn. This is definitely a must see if you are in the Atlanta area.

New Painting

I have been busy with the kids since they are out for summer vacation. Computer time is limited since there are now three other people wanting their time. I wanted to show a new piece I started working on a few weeks ago before the school year ended. Hopefully I will get a chance to work on it some more this week.
