Getting Festive...

I love when I am caught up on deadline work...
Because I can PLAY!
Most of my successful designs are painted for fun!

Before I began working in licensing I had an annual
Christmas open house in our home
around mid November.
All of the items for sale were hand made,
framed original watercolors or prints
from my original watercolors.
I miss those shows; the fun! the people! the artists!

Odd artsy fact...
I could listen to Christmas music year 'round.
Helps the ideas flow~

I still plan Christmas open houses...
Instead of opening the doors to our home
our Etsy shop will have some
fun Christmas originals
Beginning November 1st!

Hope you have a beautiful weekend!

Hello Michelle,
Judy Offen gave me your blog address. I own a small quilt shop in Caledonia, NY and I'm wondering if you'd like to teach a class or three on needle felting here at the store.
Thanks very much,
