Making, Making, Making!

I recently went to Hawaii with a bunch of girlfriends. It's my first time doing anything like that. What I love about this particular group of ladies is that they're super crafty and creative artists. Just about everyone brought something to make or paint. It was so fun being with them and watching the creativity abound!

Since I've been home I've been on a making tear! I've been creating some gorgeous pour paintings. What I love about these paintings is that the planning and prep is the biggest part of them...and I'm a researcher and planner, so it fits me perfectly!

Planning the colors, the paint mixture and where and how the paint gets placed and then how it gets moved around the canvas has been pure pleasure for me. Look for me to be making tons more of this type of painting.

These paintings will be available for wholesale sale very soon. Add yourself to my email list to find out when they're available. And keep coming back to the blog to see what's new!

I'd love to know what color combinations you'd love to see!

Beach-ey Fabrics for a Handmade Quilt

I have something VERY special planned for this fabric! I'm making a handmade quilt with it that I designed myself with the beach in mind. Don't these fabrics make you want to run to a cottage on the beach and snuggle up underneath them? Me too!
