It's May day!

It's already the fifth month of the year!
Time is flying!
Before you know it...summer will be here. I like the weather of spring though...mild but not freezing anymore.  It's a great time to plan out summer ideas and work on projects.  I love working on the garden and flower pots. Plus my daughter is getting married in September, so there is a lot to plan and figure out.
Above is the phone or tablet calendar wallpaper for MAY.  Click here to download it.

The theme for may is Nurture. Time to nurture the garden, and of course your family and yourself.

Enjoy the outdoors...and relax!

I love making art ornaments....drawing, painting, and using colored pencils.

I have a blast...especially creating my favorite characters.

They start out like this...hand drawn on muslin and stitched. then I stuff them and paint.
It is a process.
Later I add details ...and then hangers and glitter.
Some are from "Here comes Peter cottontail" the tv movie.

I love kermie!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I made some new bunny dolls!  One easter and one spring. 
They are machine free motion stitched...she is hand painted.
They faces are so cheerful.

I decided she needed glasses.

This bunny is ready for Easter

Complete with pink pads on their paws and cottontails.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I got some egg garland at the dollar store and it was just ribbon and a few eggs on it.  So I decided to get out my tulle.

I added little bits of tulle onto the ribbon and made it fluffier.

My Easter tree looks fabulous now!
I highly recommend having a tree up year round...with each holiday represented...it so fun!

Happy April!

Merry March to you!

Wow...Lovely March is here.
I am so happy...our snow melted and there is alot of green grass out there.
The green colors are so beautiful...life renewing!
To me...March is all about the green!

I painted this lil lady with shamrocks and thought it would be perfect for the March calendars. 

I am really happy about things getting better on the covid fight.  Its been 2 long years.  I am hoping it is truly behind us now. I guess we will see.

********************************************************
I have a new little pattern:
Make these Chenille ornaments in no time. Artwork for dolls included!
These dolls are made using my doll faces... I painted.... a couple different leprechauns, a sassie lassie, bunny and cat. The images for faces are great resolution...they fit on one page...but can be print over and over.

I have pictures with all instructions....its super easy....simple supplies too! I give extra ideas too. Make a bunch for you and your friends!
Ornaments measures: 5 1/2" x 5"

There are 17 doll faces to a page. Copy artwork or print artwork again and make limitless dolls.
These dolls are great hanging in holiday trees, on gifts, would make cute wearable pins, great for craft shows and fun for your spring decor.

The cat's have a tail...big eyes!

This is an example of the doll heads sheet.
The one in the pattern is super great quality....all my own artwork.

More examples of how you can use the chenille stem dolls...put on top of a pot of gold.....

Hanging from a couple ornaments too.

Other stuff I recently made:

You know how I loved my precious cat Froy, who recently passed away...I made a little froy ornament of him...he is holding his favorite toy that I called rainbow snake.
This makes me smile and not so sad.

I painted this large painting of a girl and her butterflies.
It was fun and really was therapeutic. 
Magic really comes from doing whatever art you like to do. 
I take online art classes to learn something new...I love mindy lacefield ones....check out her youtube videos!

Have a Wonderful March!
