Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

DON'T THROW THAT AWAY!!......I hear an echo...... Ok, girls....after following artsy blogs and discovering the value of that little junk.....I'm NOT going to throw it all out....again! It's hopeless, I'll never get Dick's garage clean!! It has my kid's toys and junk, who are now in their late thirties, it has Dick's Mom's stuff, My Mom and Dad's stuff, kid's college stuff, my old store's stuff, Dick's stuff and all the other stuff!! Can I make that many altered books to get rid of it all? You think!? Well, I can't wait to try......so here is a little bit of my stuff, to start with.....not the vase, but the other stuff....and the glass stopper...I think that will make a wonderful circular stamp....for my book or art....this is a drop in the bucket! The butterflies are from the seventies or sixties.....the leaf is actually from Bath and Body works...is that antique yet? I welcome any ideas.....the little Dr Pepper menu holders are two cute...I have two and they are about 3x4.5 inches tall.... The other photo is of the frame I painted. I stamped a heart shape (from a potato)....just for the frame of this Heart Tree Print with the scripture from Psalms.....written along the tree's limbs.....the potato worked but was dried up the next day....so those stamped hearts are a one of a kind! Enjoy, enjoy your week!

Your garage must look a lot like mine. There just HAS to be something to do with all that good stuff. Good luck this week at the Round Top show!
