New for January

It's been a while since I posted anything new....been a very hectic couple of months!! First pic today is a cute little sampler from a Terrye French "Painting With Friends" pattern, and a couple of little memo boxes I painted up to match.
Next is another painted sampler....this on is an older Kim Klassen pattern, found in Create and Decorate magazine (my fave!!)
Third is another Terrye Friend PWF pattern (more about them later!!) done on a half-circle...I love anything Americana!!
Last pic is an adaptation of a Sue Allemand pattern from a few years ago.....very simple but an awesome sentiment.

Now for some good news.....I "applied" to be part of the Terrye French "Painting With Friends" pattern group and was accepted!! If you aren't familiar with the group, Terrye provides the line drawing pattern, and one of the "friends" paints it, developing the palette and painting directions. The patterns are listed as "Designed by Terrye French, painted by---", and are for sale on the Painting With Friends blog. I recently received my first pattern, a cute little group of bunnies......and am finding that it isn't as easy as it seems, but I am determined to get it right!! Will be posting the results once they are accepted by Terrye and her co-ordinator, Deb Antonick.

Hope to be updating my calendar in the next few days, it is woefully out of date!! Have a few tentative show plans (Country Chicks in May, Funky Junk Sisters in June) but nothing definite yet....hope to do at least one more summer or fall show, plus my usual holiday season shows.

Be sure and check us out on Facebook too,

Also, my dear friend Lisbeth Stull launched her website this weekend ( where she is selling some of her amazing decorative painting patterns. I especially love "Chef Boo"!! Check it out!!
