A Fabulous Suprize in the Mail

As many of you know I hate to sew or even touch fabric...I brake out into a sweating mass of jelly puddle on the floor.  The saddest part of all of this is that as a teenager my mom taught me how to sew.  I participated in all the sewing 4-H events in our community for the 10 years I was involved in 4-H.
I have no excuse--but hate to sew. 
So when Brenda contacted me about one of my chicken patterns that is for painting and she was going to sew it I thought "better her than me"!
But look at how cute this chicken turned out!  I have been amazed and in awe since receiving it.  I let my daughter open the box and next thing I knew she had added it to her critter collection!

This is the pattern I sent her and the results are stunning.  What a talented person Brenda is.  That is called thinking outside the paint brush.  Listed below are the fun places to find her work.  Check out her cow and strawberry!  FABULOUS!!

Happy Easter to All and some winners at the PAFA!

Today is the day to welcome the Easter Bunny and a great time to remember the reason for this season.
We will be coloring eggs and getting the house cleaned up so that the rabbit doesn't think our house is a complete disaster.  ( The best part of any holiday-the kids will willingly help clean!)  We will also be spending some time talking about the Crucifixion of Christ and what it means to us individually and as a family.

The first drawing was held at the Primitive and Folk Artist blog Mother's day giveaway!  It is not to late to hop over there and sign up!  The next drawing will be next Saturday morning!

Some Bunny Magnets

Some days it is so hard to get motivated...then my sister will call and say, "What magnets do you have for Easter?"  Then my brain has to turn on.  I decided that I would paint up a couple of these cute little guys and mailed some to my sister.  I then added some to Etsy and Artfire.  Now that this is done what to do next....this means finding something to do rather then clean the house!  Enjoy!
