Hi Everyone!! I hope this post finds ever one well and not to wet from hurricane Sandy. My family is all in New Jersey so I hope everything goes well for them. Here where I live in Southern California we are still experiencing summer whether. It's 90 degrees today and I have to say I'm tired of it. Last week it cooled down and we took our grandson to the pumpkin patch for the first time. Now we are back in shorts:(. I was able to get a Santa tree done today and it's called Santa's Cookies. The tree measures 25 1/2 inches tall. Its loaded with ornaments and a faux popcorn garland. The painting on the front is a design by Terrye French. You can purchase the pattern from Painting With Friends. I have the tree listed on ebay. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week and a save Halloween!!!! Denise:)
Hi Everyone!!! It's been a long time since I posted. I have been under the whether for a few weeks. I'm feeling a lot better now and I'm ready to get painting. I'm also babysitting my new grandson three days a week. I started last week and boy does that tire me out. I'm so glad I had my children when I was young. I'm lucky thou because my husband is retired and he is here to help me so I can still work. I just have to make sure I get a lot of painting done on the days I don't have him. I did finally get a Fall tree done today. It's called Pumpkin Pancakes. It's a pattern from Painting with Friends. Design by Terrye French and painting by Martha Smalley. The tree will make a wonderful holiday decoration to display until Thanksgiving. I have it listed on Ebay. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!!!!
Hi everyone!! I finally got some time to make another tree. I have been spending a lot of time with my daughter and my new Grandson before she has to go back to work. We are having so much fun watching him grow. It's our first Grandchild so you can just imagine. So yesterday I sat and painted an original design for my Fall tree. I love to paint saltbox houses. It has lots of pumpkins and fun stuff. I have it listed on Ebay. I hope you you all have a great week. Talk to you soon!!!!
Hi, Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I can't believe it's September. Now it all begins and I don't know where to start. I just finished painting a design for Terrye French call Falloween. It will be coming out soon at Painting with friends blog. So when I finished painting the design I decided to make a tree with it. This is a 24 inch tree with lots of Fall goodies on it. This could be displayed now through Thanksgiving. I already decorated for Halloween at my house. My family thought it was to soon. I hate to say this but I still had my July 4th decorations up. So I thought it was time. Anyway I use all my decorations as props for my pictures. Well it's back to work for me. Stay cool and I'll talk to you all soon:)
Hi Everyone!! Well summer is almost over and the holidays will soon be upon us. Except we have been having terrible hot weather here. It's been in the triple digits here all week. I don't go outside unless I have to. I have been working on Fall trees all week. I have these trees listed on Ebay. Its been fun working on Fall items. I'm still decorated for July 4th in my living room. I think I will start to decorate for fall next week. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!! Denise :)
Well I finally found the time to post that my Grandson was born on July 20th. His name is Ethan Robert. I stayed with my daughter for a week at her house. Boy did I forget what it takes to take care of a newborn baby. I was so tired. I love him dearly but I was sure glad to get back home and sleep in my own bed. She is lucky he is a very good baby. I'm posting a picture of me holding him the day after he was born. I don't usually like to post pictures of myself but I couldn't resist this one. My first picture as a Grandma!! Now I have to catch up on all my special orders and my Fall painting. Have a great week everyone!!!!
Hi Everyone!! Hope you all are staying cool. It got really hot here in Southern California this week. So I don't stick my nose out the door unless I have to!! I worked on some Halloween this week. I finished this tree yesterday. I wanted to paint this design last year but never got a chance, so I made sure I got to it first thing this year. It's a Terrye French design called "Whimsical Fall Parade". This tree is packed with lots of Halloween goodies. It stands 29 inches tall. I have it listed on Ebay. Also don't forget to stop by Painting with friends blog and check all the new designs for Christmas in July. www.paintingwithfriends.blogspot.com

Hi Everyone!! Hope you all had a great 4th of July. My daughter had us over for a bbq and some swimming. She just found out on Tuesday that she is scheduled to have her baby on July 19th in the morning. So we don't have much longer to go:). So I'm trying to get some painting done before my Grandson is born because I will be helping my daughter out for awhile. In the beginning of the week I finished painting this scarecrow on a small case. I have it listed on Ebay. I also just started selling figurines from ESC Trading company. I have always loved these cute figurines and decided to start selling them myself. Now I just have to remember to sell them and not keep them for myself. The Pumpkin Lad and Lass are in the picture with the case. Well I hope you all have a great rest of the week, if you can with this awful heat. Thanks so much for stopping by:)
Hi Everyone!! Hope everyone is enjoying there summer. Not long now before my grandson is born. Two more weeks to go and Grandpa and I can't wait for our first grandchild. I think I will be busy for a few weeks helping my daughter. Thank goodness she lives close by. So I think this week I'm going to start working on some Halloween projects to get ahead of the game. I'm ready to start painting something different. Yesterday I finished working on a small saltbox tree. It's 15 inches tall and could be displayed all year. I have it listed on Ebay. Well here is wishing you all a wonderful 4th of July weekend!!! Denise:)
