Thinking Outside my Box---Again

My Jazzersize friend Kelly called me a couple of days ago and wanted heart-shaped magnets for her daughter that loves horses.  Well I had to again think outside my box.  I usually don't paint anything that resembles a critter because I can't get it right.  But I have to say these turned out better then I thought.  They do look like horses, right?  I guess it is good for me to be challenged.  Some times I think my box is pretty small so this is a good thing for me!  Kelly liked them now I am hoping her daughter will too!  So now I will have to stop horsing around and get to work!

LOVE is spoken here...

It is a saying that needs to be placed everywhere!!  If all of us in the world would only speak "LOVE" what a great world we would live in.
So on that note this sign will be my first 2011 give away in hopes that we will all speak more LOVE this year.
I found this lettering on the Internet and adapted it to this 10 x 7 screen. It is hand painted in 4 different colors of pink with the lettering on the frame done in White. Glitter paint has been applied to the heart. The frame is a dark pink and the hearts are stenciled on with a lighter shade of pink. It has been sprayed with a matte finish. It has a saw tooth metal hanger on the back.



To enter:
 I would love for you to follow my blog.
Leave me a comment on what you most LOVE about our world.
Please leave me an e-mail so I can contact you if you are the winner.

If you would like to spread the word I would really appreciate it.  The drawing will be held on
January 16 and as usual I will have one of my kids draw a name out of a hat.

For me at this point in my life I am in LOVE with the great friends I have met by having a blog and being part of a great group of ladies at the Old Farm House Gathering!
Thank you all for your support!
Good luck to all!

Winter is really Here!!

I guess Winter is really here.  It seems that every where across the country it is so snowy and cold. 
A week ago we had a really wet snow here.  So I take my daughter to her friend's house and apparently hit a speed bump to hard that caused the serpentine belt to slip on my van.  So I lost the power steering in the car.  Because I had my slippers on I decided to risk driving the car home.  It took all of the muscles I had to drive that beast home in that deep snow.  In turn it packed tons of that wet snow under the car freezing the belt.  Then the temperature plummeted and it really got cold .  It took us (my husband) about 24 hours to thaw the car and remove all the snow from underneath so that he could get the belt loosened to put it back on again.
I felt bad and did sweep out about 2 inches of water from the garage but my slippers stayed dry!  Good thing I did not have to walk home in that storm. You think I would know better having lived in Alaska.
So I have decided to stay in and never leave my house until the thaw!  Well that wont work so I hope we all can stay warm and wear shoes out in the cold just in case you have to walk home!
Have a warm day!
