So excited I get to share with you my Christmas Holiday designs!  These have be such a success this year and I appreciate all who are enjoying.  I am trying to get most of them in my ETSY SHOP but I am so slow.  If you see something that strikes you, please let me know.  Please remember, if I do not have it in stock, the turn around time is two weeks.  You are also welcome to print this out.

Enjoy!

New Vintage Project

I have never painted in just black and white but I will give it a whirl. My Great Aunt had a bridal and ready to wear shop for 25 years. I grew up in that shop as my immediate family all worked there.. This is a photo of their first location. My mom is left, granddad middle and My Aunt mom’s sister on right, though you probably can’t see right now. follow along as I bring it to the paper.

My second day of painting I learned I loved this technique!  I will keep working and hope I don’t over work it. ……sigh……..
