some more pretties

There aren't too many holidays I don't LOVE, and Valentines is no exception. I was laid up the last couple weeks with some back problems. Boredom got the better of me and I started making some Valentines cards. I stumbled upon a blog that was taking donations of these cards to be sent to childrens hospitals so I jumped right aboard. My daughters also helped by writing all the messages inside. This has become a new tradition we will participate in from now on. It made my heart so happy to make these for such a good cause!

This is a cute birthday bag I made using Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer line. I love this paper! I love that is also can be used for so many other things besides just summer!
This was a Halloween tray i made for some decoration around my home. I love Halloween and was inspired when I found the wooden tray at the dollar store! I painted is black and away I went. I will love displaying this year after year.

Here are some mixed media canvases I made. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing when I started them, but loved watching them evolve. These were so much fun to make!
Thanks for stopping by!

Sometimes its been hard to find time to get into my studio and other times I don't want to leave it! :D

So here is some of what i have been up to lately...
