How many times have you seen your grandmother's broach in your jewelry box and thought.... "I wish I could do something special with it?"

Well, now you can! You can create a one-of-a-kind artful creation of your own! Tracie and my class on the painted pendant will give you this opportunity. You do NOT need to be an expert painter to paint one of these lovely pendants to hold the treasured piece of Vintage jewelry.

This is a class where we know from experience that you will walk away proud of your creation AND be able to show off that precious keepsake from your grandmother, aunt or mother!

If you don't have a treasured family heirloom then CREATE your own! Buy an exquisite Vintage pin at the local antique store or flea market, paint the tiny canvas and you will have something to wear and share with someone special for years to come! WHAT a TERRIFIC gift to yourself!

You will NOT be dissapointed with the results. We will teach you a technique that you can use over and over again to create unique works of art.

Today is a special day to share Love and Friendship and I must say I am completely surrounded by both!

My dear husband, who NEVER forgets any special day, gave me this card! The picture on the card reminds both of us of the fun we have with our precious pets...the hours of laughter and the mounds of memories we have shared as we watch their daily interactions. How often we interact in much the same way...playful fussing, flirting and snuggling.

And he gave me a dozen chocolate covered strawberries from SnowBall Ice Cream Shoppe! Our son, Brett, gave me a lovely floral piece he made.

I simply had to share....

Of course, the Wonderful taste of the strawberries I can only say is FABULOUSLY DELICIOUS!!

Then, when he returned from the mailbox there was a "special" package for me from my INchie Divas.

Look at these BEAUTIFUL creations!

Jane Eileen hosted this swap for me because I wasn't able to use my hand following surgery. Her clever packaging brought a smile right away.....NO calories in this treat...ONLY Love and Friendship!

I can look at these bits of eye candy anytime with no fear of adding pounds to my figure! Of course, my heart is growing emincely as I feel the creative love and energy these Divas put into each of the tiny inch by inch works of art!

I, also, participated in a Valentine card swap hosted by Heather Simpson-Blumm. Look at these lovely cards I recieved. My studio is overflowing with Valentine greetings!

Don't you just love this "The Day of LOVE"?


and.....Thank You for visiting my blog!

Here is where the beautifully delicious strawberries were created.

The Lovely floral is an original creation from Willow Brook Home.

Please visit Jane and Heather, you will enjoy their fun and creative posts.

Trying to Decide?

For those of you who have been contemplating Tracie and my class, I wanted to share some class photos with you. The majority of the students had never painted and none had painted birds. This class is one where you will learn a technique that will enable you to paint whatever you desire. We will also be teaching some unique distressing techniques.

Aren't these beautiful? YOU and paint like this also!

Don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible for the drawing this month!
