Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I have so much to be thankful for. I am so blessed and I thank God everyday for those blessings. This morning I woke up and I had a wonderful surprise. I sold one of my ACEO's! It was "I Mean Business" pictured below....AND the person who bought it lives in the same town that I do. How funny is that! Small world......

So I feature another Snowman card today because you know there is No man like a SNOWman! Here it is. I call it "Soaking Up the Snow".......Here's the link to the etsy posting
I hope your Thanksgiving is a blessed one--full of happiness and love and lots of good food. And for those who are without today, my prayer is that this next year is more prosperous for them and that God keeps them safe.

And today remember the troops in Iraq & Afganistan. One of my former 4-Her's is stationed in Iraq. His name is John Reece. Keep John and all the troops in your prayers.

I Mean Business

Don't you just love this ACEO? It's by one of the members of my Etsy team--Designing Artist Women's Group Team (DAWG TEAM). The artist is Sue Taylor...I just love the humor and whimiscality (if that's a word) in this card. It's mixed media. Available on Etsy

Now for what's up with me. So I've painted so much lately (ACEO's, china, wood, glass, you name it) and made jewelry that I think I pinched a nerve in my arm....ouch it hurts to paint but I keep doing it because I don't know how to live without painting something everyday...speaking of which I did this crazy ACEO ..It's called "I Mean Business" ---somedays I just get too darn silly.....listing it on Etsy today. Drop by my Etsy Store:

Is this mug cute or what.....I love sheep. They are one of my favorite animals to visit at the fair. Especially after they shave them and put them in the spandex jumpsuits (well that's what they remind me of). Anyway this handpainted china mug is available on my Etsy shop. It would be a great gift for Christmas. Here's the listing:

A Worthy Cause

This unique handcrafted wall hanging heirloom is being donated by the DAWG group (Designing Artist's Womens Group) in an effort to raise awareness about women's breast cancer. 100% of the money raised by this auction will be donated to Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Research Fund. Several of our members made ACEO sized quilting blocks and all were hand pieced into a 19 x 25 inch wall hanging and then it was also quilted by hand. The DAWG Group hopes you will enjoy & help support our "Quilting For A Cure" cause! Please go to the Ebay listing to bid!
