Happy Thanksgiving!

My daughter and I made these little turkeys last night for Thanksgiving. She made them at an activity and we decided to make some more to share with our BIG family today. It brought back memories of my mom helping me make turkeys out of gumdrops and toothpicks and I can't remember what else, to take to my grandma's for Thanksgiving. And for me, that's what Thanksgiving is all I have the best one. I'm sure that I am biased (a little) but my family really is awesome. I love being with them and I am so grateful for them. I am truly blessed. My hope is that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving too! Enjoy your day.

A Big Announcement

I have been hard at work here getting my little Etsy store up and running. Last night, I finally achieved my goal. Wahoo! I am excited to announce that my Etsy store is off the ground. This is something that I have wanted to do for such a long time. I had to overcome the fear of putting myself out there and just do it! I hope that my little prints and things find good homes and that they bring all of the joy to others that they bring to me. Right now, I have listed 6 prints and I will soon be adding more. Watch here for my Grand Opening Celebration, coming soon. It will involve another giveaway. You can check out my progress HERE.

Happy Day!

I finally made my way back to my blog. It has been a little crazy around here. There have been meetings for school, church, etc., house organization, an appraisal, teaching art at my daughter's school, cookie decorating, running an election, then, of course, there was Halloween (which is now a week long event apparently), and a thousand other little things. On top of that I have been working on getting my art business set up so I can sell some things. This is turning into a frustrating process. Do I register as a sole proprietor, LLC, or what? I have been asking around and am now more confused than ever. I could hire an attorney but that seems a little drastic to just sell a little art, not to mention it would seriously cut into my paint budget. Does anyone out there have any advice? I'm open to it all. I did, however, manage to finish another painting to have printed as a card.
Happy Day

I started this a while ago but I had it on the backburner while I have been working on other things. I'm trying to wrap up a few unfinished pieces and one that has been intimidating me for months. It's just sitting here staring at me every day and I really need to just be brave and work on it some more. OK I just talked myself into it. I better hurry up and get to work before I change my mind.
