This is what I'm making for dinner tonight...I HIGHLY suggest it! It's probably the 6th or 7th time I've made it and it makes me look like a kitchen goddess to Awesome Guy!

Even though this is a great recipe, I CAN'T leave you without giving you something to look at!
First, the a Christmas painting that just isn't done's been sitting here for a while...long enough for me to figure out it needs some age, and crackle even! :) I got the idea from the Christmas carol, "Sleigh Ride" and is my idea of what a wintry fairy land looks like. Awesome Guy said he was surprised to see glittery mushrooms in the winter, but I told him that anything is possible with fairies. :)

Second, my first commission through etsy!! I thoroughly enjoy painting this way and would love to do more. It was especially fun to do this one because it was a remake of my first painting ever, almost exactly a year ago. It was really fun to see how I've changed since I started. The scan is not that great...the 3d banner cast some shadows...wish I knew that before I sent her off to her new home...I would have scanned her again!

Lastly, the rest of the ornies I made while I was on vacation in January. Can't go on vacation and not craft...especially while it is snowing outside! I had a great time and made so many different things...I'll share more in another post. :) Anyway, these ornies were a lot of fun to do...I used my trusty vintage hymnal and let the title decide what I would paint and as it turned out, some have a religious theme and some do not. They will be up on etsy soon, but if you see one you want before me and I'll take care of it for you. :) Thank you for all the entries in my giveaway (below) is so nice to hear from all of you. :)

As my Madeline would say, have a HAPPY day!
