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!!!

It is not on the lamp it will go on..just a post....I am sweating this one out!! If it doesn't work, I can make it into a garden hat!! I wonder what my new neighbors will think!! Ha...LOVE this class with Mary Ann Moss!

The following photos are of two 6x9 journals, the inside ready to doodle in, from cut strips of the painted pattern papers and then the upcoming project I am trying by sewing angled cut strips of my patterned papers to form a slip on lamp shade for a lamp I have with a white shade.  This shade should just sit on it covering the white shade and with the light on will hopefully be pretty and able to make some of the colors glow.   Watch for the finished project soon. As we continue to sew paper fabric with our painted patterns!
