My latest Ebay Valentines

These are my latest Valentine items for Ebay. This has been a crazy week! We had to pull up our beautiful wood floor in our kitchen the week before because our fridge leaked a bunch of water. Then, we kept smelling gas off and on all week! We finally determined it was the stove, probably from moving it out to pull up the wood floor. So finally today, we had the gas company guy come out, and thankfully he was able to fix it. Friday was school picture day for Sabrina, so had to wrestle with her to get a comb through her hair! Hopefully the picture turned out okay, if it did I will definitely share it with you. Am also trying to prepare for Sabrina's birthday next week. Her birthday is on Tuesday, so will go in on that day to volunteer instead of Wed. That way I can bring the treat for the class. It is just store bought rice krispy bars, they won't let us bake anything at home. Bummer! Then next week end we will have a birthday party with cake and presents, Grandma and Grandpa, and friends. Should be lots of fun!

I got tagged!

Well, Jenny tagged me so here's the deal. The Rules: Each player of this game starts with "6 weird things about you". Each person who gets tagged needs to write a blog post of their own 6 weird things as well as clearly state this rule. After you state your 6 weird things, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you're tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog for information as to what it means.
Here's my 6 weird things:
1. When I was little I ate the tips off of matches! Must have had a deficiency!
2. I like to take chocolate cake without frosting and mix it in a bowl with ice cream till it is the consistency of mashed potatoes.
3. I wanted a pet so bad when I was a kid that I decided the daddy long legs spider under our piano was my pet. I named him Nicholas ( was a fan of the tv show "Man from Uncle"). Then my sister stepped on him.
4. Can tie a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue.
5. I'm getting addicted to scrapbook papers. And I don't even do scrapbooks! (I love scrapbooks but don't have the time). I do use them in my art though.
6. We have tv's, but no cable or dish or anything! Just rabbit ears! Haven't had it since the 80's. Don't really miss it either.

Finally got some Valentine items done for ebay! The top is the "Candy Fairie" done in cream, chocolate brown and pink. Next is a set of three feather tree "Truffle" fairies.

I hope to show a better pic of her cupcakes on my tree later.

Thanks Santa

Well, Santa did a great job as usual! Sabrina was pretty happy with all her gifts. And, she definitely had fun showing her great grandma Marie her new Barbie "laptop". They must have sat and played with that for an hour! Of course, her favorite toys were the fake food items from the dollar section in Target!

Goodbye Oreo

Hope everyone had a peaceful and happy holidays. We had a great time for the most part, but before I can relive the fun, I have to mention my sweetie pie kitty, Oreo. She was 15 years old, and so loving and cuddly. But she had started to lose weight, so much so that we took her to the vet. We found out that she had all kinds of problems, and we knew it was better to put her to sleep. But it was the hardest thing I've ever done. I still can't quite believe she's gone. Usually, she would be sitting on my lap right about now. But, we rescued her from a shelter that was overloaded with cats. So I'm pretty sure she got a much longer life than she might have. She will be greatly missed.

Sketches of the Week

Still in a Christmas and winter mood with my art, and still working on my technique with gouache. It's a much trickier medium than I ...
