Three Minis

Ok, I know, there are only two paintings in this picture. But there are three! After I mailed off the first one, the same girl purchased two more. Fun! I really love these mini paintings. They’re small and quick to paint. And they’re dang cute too, I think so anyway.   This was the first…

Not a Baby Anymore

So I realize it’s been a WHILE since this handsome little guy has been a baby. I mean, he’s two years old plus a few months. He’s obviously not a baby. He’s passed all the “not a baby anymore” milestones – walking, eating regular food, big boy haircut, being weaned from the good stuff etc.…

Which means I couldn’t follow the tutorial exactly because the measurements were all different… It was such an irritating process…

Quilted Zipper Pouches

I got a new computer at work the other day and while I was copying all of my files over, I found these snapshots and they made me smile. Last Christmas I made each of my sisters a quilted zipper pouch, and stuck some small presents inside. I had fun coming up with all of…
