Pure Sweetness...

Hello, hello!

Are you all ready for Thanksgiving?

Hubby and I will leave tomorrow...

to travel back to our home town, to be with family! Yay!!! I had hoped to have our large Christmas tree up and the house fully decorated by now (so that we could return back home to a cozy, Christmas atmosphere)....

But I've been a bit busy. I only found time to put a few tiny trees around the rooms.

You see...

I have spent days in the kitchen.

Oh, how nice...

She's been baking cupcakes for Thanksgiving ( you must be thinking). Impressed, huh?

Giggle. Giggle.

I've been in the kitchen, indeed...

Making faux cupcakes. Some became ornaments, others will be photo holders. Some are for gift giving...

Others to sell.

Aren't they just adorable?!!!!

I'm even making all of the toppers from clay!

Pure sweetness.

Poor hubby. Frothing at the bit. I have promised to bake him some real cupcakes once we get back from our Thanksgiving travels. He's been a trooper, assisting me in the kitchen with this project!

I also have more handpainted ceramic ornaments in the makings, on my work table. I sold all of the ornaments pictured in my last blog post. Gone, gone, gone!

Oh my.

Our house is quite a mess. Especially the kitchen.

It's a nice mess though!

I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Until next time.

What are your thoughts?

Hello, friends!

Guess what I woke up to this morning?


Yes, ice!

At that moment I felt even more grateful to be at home, in my pajamas...

and in my magical room, where fairytales do come true!

I've been painting for days. This first week off from work has slipped away from me. Time does fly when you are having fun, indeed!

I have just completed a series of ceramic angel ornaments!

No two are alike, and each girl seems to have her very own sweet personality!

The backside is colored as well, (without the angel)... allowing space for personalizing.

I go back and forth with thoughts on selling my art on etsy. I seem to do quite okay selling through word-of-mouth and via Facebook. What are your thoughts on this? Please, tell me!

By the way, I'd love to have you "like" my Facebook page! Please, come and join my little art community! I'm bringing it back to life... With intentions of making it an enjoyable interactive space with tutorials, giveaways, art projects... Possibly some future swaps and collaborative art journaling! What do you think? Does this interest you at all? Of course, it's also a place where I do promote and offer my creations for sell. Anyway, drop by, won't you?

It's just another thing that was placed on the back burner, due to the day job. It's so nice to be doing such things... Without watching the clock!

Aside from art, I've been cooking up some lovely meals and even baked a batch of peanut butter cookies today!

Staying warm!


I shall see you again very soon!

Feeling Like a Princess!

Hello, dear readers!

How are you?

I couldn't be better!

When I woke up this morning, I immediately began celebrating a new lifestyle!

Today is my first weekday at home, alone, since resigning from my job.


I had been thinking of all the things that I need to do and want to accomplish. Although my artwork will be priority, I still have plenty to do around the house. Today I have done a little bit of both, art and home.

I have an assembly line of tiny watercolor girls on my work table. I'm thinking that my etsy shop needs a fresh, new start...

Just in time for the holidays!


Very soon!

How about a pretty princess for a special little girl or friend in your life?

I think that we all need to feel like a princess at times.

I gave my sweet husband a big thank you this morning...

For being so supportive and allowing me to give up my day job.

He makes me feel like a princess, indeed!

Suddenly, I feel the spirit of Christmas!

I couldn't wait to do something with these little Christmas trees that hubby and I cut, deep in the woods. We got two of them.

I will do some cleaning before dragging out all of the Christmas decor...

But doesn't this tree look adorable in a vase, with water?!!!

Fa La La La La.

I feel so Martha Stewart-like today!

Oh, but wait!

I'm a princess today!!!

You'll be seeing more blog posts now that I have the time, so please, stop back by again soon!

Enjoy your day!

Love Life!

Good Veteran's Day morning to you!

Thank you all who have served our country.

This glorious country!

The husband and I paired up with another couple for a weekend getaway.

Two Polaris RZRs...

Deep into the woods- Mark Twain National Forest located between Missouri and Arkansas.

Words, not even pictures, can describe the serenity. The beauty.

I played "Miss Photographer" as I walk along the streams of crystal clear water. The sound of crunching leaves beneath my feet, birds singing, and water splashing onto the rocks. This is all that I could hear. All is quite calm here.

I do much thinking.

The bold, red berries made me think of Christmas! I am looking forward to this holiday season, having more time at home to decorate and cook. I enjoy playing Martha Stewart too! Ya know, making things for the home, clever gift wrapping, cards, elaborate meals served on pretty dishes. I must admit, it certainly does take more effort, time, and energy to do such tasks when employed full time.

In just four days, I will be unemployed and much happier!

Friday November 15, 2013 means a new beginning to me. I will create the life that suits my husband and I best.

Choosing a new path is frightening, risky...

But in my case, looks so much brighter already.

We must love our life.

Blessings to you, dear one!

I shall return very soon!

Wind & Weaving...


I have just a quick post this evening before going off to bed.

It's cold here, and quite windy. Rain, rain, rain.

I look forward to the bed and blankets tonight!

My art journal sits very close to the bed.

I dabbled in it last, on Sunday.

Not all of my pages are neat, nor pretty. Sometimes I just need to mix watercolors, hold a paintbrush... write. It feels so good!

The aroma of a roast in the crockpot filled our home over the weekend. Potatoes, carrots, onion, and celery. I bounced around here, happy as a lark!

I'm now down to just seven more work days! (Off on Monday)!

Baskets spinning...

Weaving when I can.

I promise to do a more detailed post on basket weaving and dying, once things settle down a bit.

Running errands, shipping art, taking care of business, planning a weekend getaway with my hubby and some friends.

How are you?

Warm and well, I hope.

I will meet you back here again soon!


Stay warm!
