New For the Etsy Shop and Mother's Day

 Happy Friday ! 
I have been a busy little bee getting things in order for my 3 upcoming workshops 
at Artiscape . Looking forward to meeting everyone, and seeing some friendly familiar faces as well :)

 Easter sort of got a way from me this year, so I have just finished these in honor of 
Mother's Day.

 I absolutely love vintage Madonna images , and have my whole life. 
I surrounded the images with pretty delicate antique  laces and trims, and finished them with one of my vintage lacey "junk in the trunk " tassels.

The back side of these 2 sided pendants features a vintage black and white image of a nest.
I will have 3 of these available in my Etsy shop later tonight ,  at 8pm eastern.  
Have a wonderful weekend!

Some New Faces !

 A couple of weeks ago when I caught that bug,  it was the perfect opportunity  to spend a little quiet time  and enjoy Pam Carriker's online workshop "Pursuing Portraits" . I enjoyed it immensely! I rarely get a "time out"  as it were . I had wanted to take the workshop for quite a while , ever since I got her book "Art at the Speed of Life" one of my favorites. I am so glad that I finally got the opportunity :)
These were a couple of my  portraits I did for the workshop. 

PFATT Marketplace !

This one, "She Bore Her Heart for All To See" is my PFATT Offering for March .
This original painting was just posted on my PFATT page, (click on photo above to visit the Primitive Folk Art Marketplace) . She was done in acrylics, charcoal, and vintage paper,s on a high quality water color paper, and then mounted to a 5x7x1/2" wood. (The water mark is for not part of the painting :)

After getting back from Reagan's Tumbling/trampoline competition yesterday evening, we found one of our favorite movies was on , "Alice ". Perfect way to unwind for the evening ,  we decided to do a little drawing, and painting, while we watched. Reagan is still working on hers. She loves playing with the backrounds too!

One of my Favorite scenes "The Tea Party " from Alice (turn off my playlist music to watch :)

Tomorrow , I will be posting 3 all new patterns in the "Etched Bullet Case Findings" in  my Etsy shop! For everyone who has been waiting for more listings of these, and the etched copper sheet , I will be busy  posting them later today and tomorrow. I just had to play a little catch up, and get ahead of myself after the last batches :)

Blessings to you,
