I'm so glad you dropped in for a visit, and hope you find something of interest on my blog. If so, I hope you will hit the FOLLOW button, and carry on this journey with me. It's always great to make new friends, and share our ideas and thoughts with each other. There is no telling what I will be getting myself into...just a fair I enjoy so many things! To name a few: I like drawing, painting, sketching, painting, wood burning, candle making, crocheting, canning, cooking, gardening, natural health, sharing thoughts and ideas, prepping for rainy days, and more. WHEW! I hope you enjoy it! And, I welcome any suggestions from you, as well.
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a designer (for DecoArt), and a artist (published a few times in magazines). I also have a bachelor's degree in Natural Health Science's. I have so many hobbies and things I dabble in, that I hope you find something of interest!

Joann's Open House - Come Meet Me!

Tomorrow, Saturday April 7th, I will be at Joann's Crafts on Washington Road!  If you are anywhere near there, would love for you to come by and introduce yourself.  I will be demonstrating the new Social Artworking classes that I will be teaching soon in their store.   There will be a sign up sheet for the new classes, which actually begin on Wednesday (next week) from 12-3, and will be (tentatively) scheduled each 1st Wednesday of the month, same time.  I'd love for you to join us!  If you'd like more information on the Social Artworking classes, you can go to any Joann's, and they have the new products already in stock in the stores.  There are some really awesome patterns in this program and I really think you will enjoy them!

I've already been practicing a few of them myself, and have found this series to be simple enough to look complex, but easy for anyone to do.  I really think you'll enjoy it : ) 

If you get the chance, I do hope to see you on Saturday.  I'll be there from 1-3.  And, perhaps you'll take a class with me! : )  Bye for now!  There is a canvas calling my name!  lol...



  1. Just an update!We had a great time at Joann's! I got to meet some wonderful people, and share some painting techniques with them. My first class in this Social Artworking will be at Joann's this Wednesday (the 11th) from 12-3. If you are intersted in signing up for the class, its not too late! And, I'd love to see you there! : )

  2. Hi Tina,
    I'm your newest follower. I love to paint too. I think your frog paintings I saw in your Etsy shop are darling! I love things for children, they are so happy! It's so nice to meet you!!

    1. Nice to meet you Julie! I just love your blog with all your fun things! Thanks so much for the compliments on my frogs and shop. Can you believe that I was actually told there "isn't a call for frog designs" by a major publishing company? lol...I wonder what rock they hide under! tee hee. Thanks for joining my blog! I hope you enjoy it here ; )
