ART NEWS- Happy life Happy Wife

Creating is my main love.  It doesn't matter what I create as long as I'm creating.  At the moment I am creating a collection of inspirational signs in 2 different techniques:
decoupaged signs of my art with inspirational messages ...

                           Decoupaged signs

...and hand painted signs for all occasions.

handmade sign "Good Morning"
 I have been doing these for years and have decided to put them in my Etsy store for sale for all to enjoy.  Being able to jump from one art to another has always been easy for me and doesn't distract me in the least.  Some people cannot do this but I find I can't be creative any other way.

Handmade sign for Laundry room

 So I have come to the conclusion that I need to create this way to make my life complete and extremely happy.

Then on a whim one day, I'll wake up and decide to do a series of paintings....hmmmmm i do believe I see sunsets and seascapes in my mind as I do have a show coming up in Jan 2015 that I need to paint for.

so always Remember:
Life has no heART without ART"

New Puppy, New Store

Adoption Day.
      John and I adopted a Shih Tzu puppy and She, Wicket, has changed our lives.  She is the most precious fuzzy bundle of joy we have ever had.  We are gaga over her.

  Ist car ride
      She has already taken over the house and has expanded my direction in the arts.  She opened our eyes to the fact that you need so much "stuff" even for a pet.  I started carrying around a diaper bag for all of the things I needed while travelling around town.  As a result we have opened a 2nd store on Etsy.com called Puppytrainingcamp.etsy.com  where we will be selling all types of puppy paraphenalia , from puppy plaques, pet portraits, puppy bags by my mom to the training camp fence and other needed items designed by John.

It is such great fun to create all kinds of items to help puppies and moms and dads have an easier life. I of course love to create everything so I am having fun with plaques and cards and birth announcements and portraits.
If you find that you need something special, let me know because everything is customizable.
Having a lot of fun is contagious!!!!  Enjoy
and remember......

I'm In my Studio!!

Well finally I am in my Studio and it feels GREAT!

I love the fact I have everything around me again.  I was all over the place before, in the living room, the bedroom, the dining room table, the garage. 

               But no more.....

work area

I have already filled the area with my supplies.  Wait til I start painting!!
Sitting Area
I have all of my trinkets and favorites, especially my English pillow, all here making my area comfortable and mine.  I want to thank my Husband for doing the majority of this project for me.  It was hard work and took a long time , but it is done and I love it.

I will now start working on my garden surrounding my studio and finishing touches.
