Do any of you painters remember the fun wood shapes Provo Craft, Zims and Robert's Craft use to carry?
I was putting out Easter Decorations, yes I know a shocker, and came across these fun things I had painted years ago.
This bunny and carrot was one of my first class I took from Susan Van Alyne.
She happened to be living in Las Vegas and taught at the Leeward's down the street from where we were living. I figured I was painting with a "BIG BRUSH" because she designed for Provo Craft.
The sweetest lady you could ever meet.
I loved her classes!!
It was a great break for me being a single mom at the time while my husband was deployed to the Middle East.
I think I got these little baskets in a swap from a painting buddy.
I painted them up for a gal to share with her family this Easter.
I remember standing outside the old Provo Craft store waiting for their HUGE sidewalk sale and about losing my mind hoping for all the great deals. They never disappointed!
I had driven up from Vegas and the Van was packed full on my trip back.
This is were I got this frog...my sister's and I could decide if it was a bear, frog or what.
But just to be safe I bought a case of them.
Then when Zim's went out of business I was there buying cases of fun things.
Love this little witch!
Many things I have painted and sold over the years.
Bringing out the Easter Decorations took me down memory lane.
I wonder if we will ever see stores like that again?
Hope you have some good memories too!
