Happy 4th!!


If you are in the U.S. I hope you are having/had a great fourth of July!

Today we aren't doing too much. Two tired and cranky kids after lots of activities the past couple of days. So today we are laying low.

I finished the above piece!! I can't say I am head over heels in love BUT I do like it and I have learned some  lessons along the way with it. Lessons about paint, paper, fabrics and varnish. The inspiration behind this piece is summer. Fun, frolicking, lazy days, berry picking, in the garden, near the sea. Some of the things summer means to me. Ha, that rhymes. :)

I am going to frame it and I am thinking about adding to a shop soon. Which one is the debate right now. Baby steps.

I LOVE how this turned out Dana! And as soon as I saw it I wondered if you were selling your work anywhere... Happy 4th!

Happy feast day to you all! Lying low sounds good! And the piece is very nice too. (liking your new blog header!). Baby steps, all the way. Just started the new Sunday event on my blog celebrating the steps...don't know if you've seen about it..a place where you can mark the steps you are taking and celebrate! Take care x

Beautiful!!

We are laying low today too. Going to Oregon in a couple of days so we are resting up. Plus it is WAY too hot to do anything around here.


Happy 4th!

A shop? Very exciting!
Love your new header, and that collage certainly does evoke all things summer.

This collage feels very summery and I do like your new banner as well as your interview feature!

I think this piece is great! It has a patchwork look to it, that really draws me in. It's lovely.
