My Mum

The lady that bore me and gave me those wonderful creative genes happens to be an artist. She was just recently part of an artwalk in our local community. I am so proud of her!! I just had to show you some of her pieces, so that you could be proud of her too.
Bear in mind, she created all of these pieces in a *week*. Now, that's ambition.
She works primarily with oil, however.....growing up I witnessed some pretty crazy creations in our house: clay goddesses (from clay off our land), papier mache dinsosaurs big enough to ride on, and flower paintings that were wall-sized. She raised four kids. In between basketball practices and playdates she perfected the art of painting. I'm very proud of my mother's art....can you tell?? Truly, these pictures only touch the surface, you would be so impressed to see them in reality. 
Pretty amazing, huh? If you would like more information about my incredible mom and her incredible art.... Just write me a note:

Rabbit Hutch

Isn't it just awesome what a little wood glue and some popsicle sticks can do?? Here's what I made last night. It's a little rabbit hutch for my Munchkins collection of plastic bunnies. It's the perfect place for a rabbit rendezvous.  I also made her a new lop eared bunny out of polymer clay (another medium I **love** to work with), paint, and a coating of Mod Podge for durability:
Aw. Isn't he just the sweetest? I'm not really tooting my own horn (that just doesn't sound appropriate to me) when I say he's the sweetest....I'm saying I love lop eared bunnies in any form!! Love them. 
Here are some of the lop's friends in the hutch. These guys, I did not make. I used some soft screening material to make this part of the hutch. The door also has a hinge on it, so you can swing it wide open and let the bunnies go crazy in the clover. 
Lop's pretty happy, I'd say. So is my Munchkin. :-)
Here are the parties I linked up to:

Lemonade Stand Sign

This is a funny lemonade sign I made for a neighbor whose little gal is an entrepreneur. :-) And, only 25 cents for a lemonade?? C'mon, who could pass that up?!?! Goodness, you can't find anything for that price anymore. And, I always tip them.... and it is STILL a good deal.
Pretty simple sign. Plywood painted yellow and then green stripes added. Big different colored yellow oval in the low center and two dark green leaves added to one side. White and pink to make the bendy straw coming out....and then pink lettering. Mod podge it all for a final touch. I did this all by hand....and I have no doubt it would look better if it were done more precisely. BUT, I am a fan of vintage style....and that's what this reminds me of. Nothings perfect, right??
Here are the parties I linked up INSPIRED!!
