More poppies!

 This is a special order on a HUGE window for family in Iowa City.  I can't wait for them to hang it up!
This bad boy is for sale! It is on a 125 year old window from the Amana Colonies (sealed) and is $100. It would make the perfect Christmas gift.

Customize your bling

 Did you know you can special order a necklace? Initial, wedding date, birthday, special saying....you name it! As long as it fits on a necklace.

 These have chains on them (but can be removed.....or at least I hope so!)

I love baby feet. 

It's beginning to look a lot like......

Christmas open house time!! Wahoo!

THIS SATURDAY December 4th from 10-4pm (both open houses!) One in Mt.Vernon and one in Iowa City! Let me know if you need directions to either.

Here are some new windows!

These will be at one of the open houses this Saturday!

 I found this pretty stellar wrapping paper at Target this weekend.  It made a fabulous background for this simply tree silhouette. ($100)
So very proud of my little boy for writing ALL of the name tags for Thanksgiving.  This has always been my job and I have passed the torch! He was thrilled.

Friday Five: Creative websites to visit

Where do you get your inspiration from? A book? A friend? A website? A billboard on your way to work?

Sometimes inspiration lies in the little things.  You take a glimpse of something and turn it into a beautiful masterpiece (or thus so in your little brain) I'm sure all of you creative people understand what I'm talking about and know that there is much loss of sleep over ideas and paintings and projects that refuse to stop swimming about your head at night.  Alas, I digress....here are some creative and inspiring websites! Enjoy!

A wee bit of sampling

I am LOVING the mini works of art.  I did an enormous batch last night! See here for more!
Getting ready for TWO open houses! 
Let me know if you are interested in a window ASAP, otherwise they could leave and never return!

Thank you note

Got a thank you note in the mail today.  It had dandelions on it.  I like dandelions.  So I painted some.
(Thank You Note, $100)

Dr. Seuss trees

 Here is Robyn's new necklace.....her and her sweetheart (DA) will be married soon!
Here is a commissioned piece I did for an awesome jewelry making lady (who coincidently will be hosting on of the open houses I'll be doing on December 4th) She saw it on a window and wanted it as a painting on a canvas.  We thought it looked a little like Dr.Seuss trees.......I dropped it off this afternoon and it looks sweet in her living room!

Up to my eyeballs in windows

Two new windows for sale! The big poppies is from a century old house (very cool) and is $100 and the, "midnight in the garden" is from the same batch of windows (see above) for $75.  I have about 10 of these big windows without panes just waiting for a special order!  Let me know!

Wreath project

 First, more little charms with hand painted and drawn artwork inside. They are awaiting chains, which are hopefully in the mail today!
 This one is waiting for two initials....wedding gift perhaps?
 I made this wreath out of recycled music for an auction that my band is participating in.
This wreath is made out of an old book and will go hand in our local library! They were so easy to make!
