My latest creation

Folk Art is my latest passion. I am on a swan kick lately. I dreamed this one up a couple days ago. When my husband brought me home the end of a countertop I knew it would be a perfect match. I have a sketch book full of ideas. Now just to find the time to paint them.

Since my husband lost his job I will be listing some of my work on ebay to try to help out with the bills. Here is the link to this one if anyone is interested.

Ovendoor Dress

I have been making ovendoor dresses for awhile. I loved this red snowflake pattern on this towel. I made it reversable. Red with white dots on one side and red with white hearts on the other. I have it up for auction on ebay, but no one seems too interested. I guess it isnt as wonderful as I thought it was.

Happy Birthday Laramie!

My angel is 4 years old today! He had his first adjustment at the chiropractors. And we stopped at the store and he picked out a balloon. His big Transformer party is Sunday.

Bob Evans Farm Festival Rio Grande Ohio

We made a trip a little south to the Bob Evans Farm Festival. It was a beautiful warm (almost too warm) day. This was our first trip there in 7 years. We were suprised how much the festival has grown. We didnt get to see everything because the kids got tired, but we saw most of it. It was a nice day.

Painted and decorated cowboy hats on display in the quilt barn. One for every county in Ohio. There are 88 in all. I would have loved to been chosen to decorate the one for our county.

There were tons of crafters, candy apples, maple cotton candy, blacksmith,wagon rides, pony rides, covered wagon rides, ax throwing, log rolling, straw maze, way too much to do. And so much to eat bean soup, sausage sandwichs, hotdogs, ice cream, trail balogna, and the list goes on and on.

Trick or Treat...Smell My Feet

This is my newest creation. I thought the crazy look on the pumpkin's face went perfect with the saying. I used an empty wooden spool for his stem. Im very pleased with the outcome.
