pear art-new!

My latest mixed media painting. 12x12 painting on canvas with acrylic paints and vintage papers. The numbers on the bowl are from a Reading Book from the early 1900's. This original canvas painting is painted on all of the edges of the canvas, therefore a frame is not needed and it's ready to be hung in your  home.  Available in my Etsy Shop.

insta friday!

This picture is crooked, so if you turn your computer you can see it right side up! Last night my niece came over and we did art, of course! I took out the crayons, a canvas or two and my hair dryer and we made some pretty cool modern art! Will and my niece peeled crayons for an hour! This pic was taken with my iphone on instagram! Remember those Kodak pics?

our soldier came home for Christmas!

Last night, we welcomed my step-son home from Iraq at Logan Airport! He walked out in uniform with his arms open wide and hugged all of us at once! He then knelt down and right away said to his little brother Will, "I've been carrying these around with me for months in Iraq. These are for you!" He then gave him the same two patches that he wears on his uniform and our Will was SO excited! Will walked beside his 6'3" brother through the airport and was SOOOOOO happy and proud, as we all were!
Just had to share this Christmas present ;) Merry Christmas to all of you! Happy Holidays too!

the darn elf-BAHUMBUG!

The Elf on the Shelf a.k.a Fred,  has only been out for about 4 days and seriously, has forgotten to make a trip back to the North Pole already! Who thought of this crazy idea?! Then, to make it all worse, I touched Fred and had to sing a Christmas carol, (Son's Orders!), so Fred could get his magic back to make the journey to the North Pole tonight. This was all so awesome at 6:30 a.m. this morning!

Fred better shape up! ;)
