Busy busy...

Well since last Friday I have on the go, patched, primed and painted my kitchen wainscot tile, from the 1950's and really, really dated. I am pumped because the kitchen is almost done, finished and did I mention done. Trimmed and cut and pruned most of the yard. Cleaned out the car, which was needed a year ago!

If you don't have Milkweed in your garden then get some. I have quite a few plants that I let grow every year. Monarch Butterflies love Milkweed and show up every year to my yard. I even got to watch a cocoon hatch and a beautiful Monarch come out!

Working with vintage images

Sometimes it is hard to rework an image so it looks good as a large poster or large print on a shirt. I am still experimenting with different techniques but not totally happy yet with the results on some more detailed images. Guess more trial and error in store for me.

Having Celiac Disease during Easter is no fun...

Both my son and I have Celiac as well as my father. It is so hard to find chocolate bunnies for Easter. I found jelly beans, peanut butter M&M's and then comes the Muskateer's marshmallow bites. I tried the marshmallow bites yesterday too make sure they tasted ok for my son's easter basket. The ingredients looked gluten free but no, boy what a night. Luckily I tried them before giving to my son. That would be a bad thing on Easter. Any way I got some more stuff uploaded. Busy, busy!

Where does the time go?

So I have been working on new designs, like forever, and rarely get time to finish a project in one sitting. Especially when you have an energetic 2 year old, cats making trouble, a dog who's bark can rattle your soul and a computer that likes to freeze at the most critical moments. Not to mention being sleep deprived. Before I know it the day has gone!

So what happen to Spring...

It was nice and in the mid 60's but yesterday is struggled in the mid 40's. Today will be in the mid 50's so a walk is in order. My daffodils have not bloomed yet so I got some flowers of my own listed on my site!

Another nice day even if no sun...

It was a gorgeous day for a walk and I took full advantage of it. I also did some artwork and designing too, so I didn't slack off much.

Spring is finally here!

Yea! It is above 50 degrees. Finally! Enjoyed the past two days and didn't work on any designs but got a few uploaded. Wondering if I need to change my style of artwork? I don't know.
