Of course I can always work with you if there is something else you have in mind for “that special person” Orders can be through PayPal if I have your email address. It works really well and I have been very pleased in the past.

Hero Arts Kit

Well, I don’t do this very often but the October Hero Arts Monthly Kit just called my name. DSCN2021

My Sister the Artist

A whilw back my grandson came through and ask..”Bebe..What is that?” He was looking up..on top of the hall book case and saw this.

DSCN1937You may be wondering too. This is a piece my sister did while in art school at Mississippi Southern.(Univ.Southern Mississippi  today) She called it “a habitat for small animals”. You know how animls find what they need to establish a safe home for themselves and their young. Here is a closer look.DSCN1939.JPG

Can’t you just see a momma rabbit and her young finding this a safe place? Becky was the real artist in our family. She was studying art education and because of her health challenges was in need of open heart surgery before going into practice teaching. The doctors in Houston, while world renowned, were not able to give her her wish. She was only 23 years old when she left us and it left a hole on our family. These holes get patched but never filled. Today she would have been 70 years old…Is hard to imagine. Here are a couple more of her works.DSCN1949DSCN1944

CAS

CAS in the crafting world is’ copy and share’ or’ clean and simple’. Mine is the first. In one of my orders came this flyer from Echo Park Paper Co. Looked like a good design to CAS so I did on a card for the good neighbor who gave me the figs. The card is on the left. lol

I also got the mail out to my customer.  Some of this was all ready to go. A few had to be a late night project.

Nature’s Inspiration

 

DSCN1717I love the wisteria vine. Yes it can be overtaking , but has such a sweet smell and brings on Spring like none other. My cousin gave me this vine several years and while she and I both hoped it would be purple ….white will have to do. So….I’m learning to “grow” Susan’s Garden from Elizabeth craft designs and it is time consuming,  but well….what do you think?

Everything at once

 

The month of Feb. was full. First there was the On line Watercolor Class for Card Makers…Intermediate Techniques. Really good information and good examples of the teaching principals. Then there was the Gratitude 52sketchbook project by Jennifer Frith that confirms  up to this point why I don’t scrapbook. It has been enlightening and thought provoking  just not my thing. Only proud of a couple of pages so far. Maybe it ,or, I will get better as we go. Next was Sandy Allnock’s Paintalong. Now I know I really need better supplies. Boy…my wish list at Simon Says and Ellen Hutson ( or is it Hudson) is growing.  Now it’s time for the Butterfly drop.

What is the butterfly drop? Awhile back Dina Kowal was ask to paint a butterfly for  the Butterflyeffectbethechange  organization. Of course her butterfly was beautiful as is all of her artistic creations. I thought…why not give it a try… so after getting in touch they sent me a blank wooden butterfly to paint, hide and let someone find  (hopefully) and then have $250. donated to the charity of their choice.  Next weekend is the drop. More information will be in the local newspaper on March 10 and the drop will be on March 12. I will post early clues on this blog on that day. Here is a picture of my creation.DSCN1497 Good luck to all who go for it and please let me know who you are.

Now…remember…This is the day the Lord made…rejoice and be glad.
