Tomorrow starts a New Year......

Tomorrow starts a new year. Can you believe it. This year has passed by so fast.
My children are a year older, and I see great things going on. This year I am not going to try to do things myself. I am going to choose God to help me.

Along with that I am painting and doing the things I love.

May God bless all my wonderful blog friends in the up coming year.

Cold Weather is no match for my hats!!!!!!!

Check out my new hobby... Have you ever heard of the Krafty Knitter? I have a friend that has been using it to make hats. It looked fun, so I gave it a try. My husband has even got in on the action. So far I have just made a few for my daughter.

This last one is my first attempt...

Matryoshka Nesting Dolls

I was in Hobby Lobby the other day and found some wooden, unfinished nesting dolls. I have always liked these little, unique dolls. I didn't want them to be the traditional kind. I don't think I could have painted them that way. But I love Shabby Chic look so I painted them with that kind of look. I think they turned out pretty good for my first attempt.

My children loved playing with them. Unstacking ... stacking... unstacking... stacking... you get the picture. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I hope the New Year brings you many wonderful blessings.

My husband keeps coming up with other ideas for the bottles... I may surprise you with a new creation.

Remember the reason for the season.... Jesus..
God Bless Everyone,

CHRISTMAS ... CHRISTMAS is almost here....

5 days till Christmas... I got my packages mailed today to Alabama. So they are sure to get there on time. I painted this established sign for my sister-n-law. I thought it turned out quite well. I have a friend that writes really pretty, and I usually am the one that paints the flowers. But this time I painted the words, and I think it turned out quite well.. Don't you think?

Hannah is my niece, and I wanted to paint her name for her wall. I love the zebra stripe letters.

I won this lovely little dress from doris marie. Check out her stuff at
(This is not the best picture of Mollie. She would not let me fix her hair cute, and she really wanted to wear this dress to school.) Doris... I got so many complements on the dress. SO Cute!!!

Another coke bottle....

The rug rats and I on a hay ride and out singing Christmas carols with our church..What a lovely time we had....

Merry Christmas to everyone in blog land... May you have a blessed holiday and a wonderful New Year.
