Roses, roses everywhere!

Still working on the Spring Fling stuff but there is light at the end of the tunnel... which is fast approaching. See the light on the roses? That tunnel end is in sight!

I'm a Little Teapot, Short & Stout

This weekend is the Spring Fling luncheon, a fundraising event for our local painting chapter (CACF). I truly need my head examined this year because I volunteered to do not just one table but participate in two!! My friend, Penny B, and I are collaborating on two very different themed tables - and I have stuff in various stages of completion spread all over my kitchen and dining room. One table is called "Harvest Rose" and contains elegant roses & lace. The other is "Whimsical Teaparty" and is more vintage & funky. These little teapots are ceramic pins that will go on the whimsical table.
I have a scary amount of work still to be finished before Saturday, yet here I sit posting photos & blogging. I must be nuts!!! Why do things always sound great in the planning stages & the execution of said plans sometimes ends up feeling like - an execution?!?
Will post photos (if I survive this) of all the table stuff, so check back after Saturday if you want to see how it turned out, what we did, and if my sanity is a total loss.

Butterfly Dreams Part 2

OK - Maybe just a bit more... this turned out better than I anticipated & I just can't resist! This design is on an ACEO that has been sent somewhere special. More about that later...

Just got back from 10 days in Mexico and I am still trying to get caught up. There is a lot going on right now! Our chapter Spring Fling is May 2nd and I am painting furiously to get stuff ready for TWO tables - photos to follow on that. My friend, Penny, and I are collaborating on two very different tables - should be fun.

Also, the deadline looms for the SDP certification boards - May 18 is the deadline!!! I am working on a master floral board this year - keeping my fingers crossed!

April Fool

In the spirit of April foolishness, here is the outside of a new little piece of art I just finished. Can't show the inside quite yet so this is just a little bit of a tease... more to come shortly.

The spring holidays are upon us. One of my most favorite memories is hunting Easter eggs in my grandparent's very large yard. I don't know who hid all those eggs but all the grandkids would gather together & have a fine old time of it!

My husband's family celebrates Passover and I can remember some special dinners with his family when we still lived in California.

However you celebrate the season, Happy Spring!!
