Getting ready for a Celebration

The Old Farmhouse Gathering Team will be having a New Beginnings Celebration starting next week!
It has felt great to paint and to be painting Spring related items.
Still feeling bad we did not get as much snow as we needed here.  Feeling worst for all the folks on the east coast that had more then their share and are still trying to dig out.
But here comes SPRING right?!
Here is a preview to what I came up with---and finished for the celebration!

Still have to finish up a couple of things and then let the celebration begin!
Let Spring Sprung!
While painting I am forever listing to e-books and the last book I listened too was not a WWII book--go figure.  
But I would highly recommend this book!
"Calling me Home" by Julie Kibler.
I am not a book review writer but it was a heart warming, heart jarring, stop and think about book.
If you get a chance to read or listen to it let me know what you think.
I am always up for good books to read or listen to so if you have any you would recommend let me know!
Now off to paint for a few minutes before the kids are home and I am bumped off the computer due to their homework!

I have been painting!!

 YEA, I have been painting!  
So many ideas and so easily side tracked.
 I need to finish at least a couple of projects!
I did get these two done and even listed on Etsy.
Can you believe I am ahead of the next holiday!! 
Just need to finish the frame on this one!
I am not sure how to finish this garland, add just wire or beads or material?
This is were I get stuck sometimes---how to finish!
I know most of you on the east coast are really looking forward to SPRING, so this photo is for you!
We are to hit the 50's this weekend...really?  
We need the snow, not necessarily the cold.
So I will be wishing for snow for us here in the west and for spring for you all in the east!
Enjoy your day,

Best laid plans....

These were to be painted for Valentine's and listed on Etsy.
My best laid plans interrupted with life events!
But today is the day I will finally paint....something!
Wish me luck--moving on to St. Patrick's Day.  
 I am hoping to one day be ahead of the game!
Wishing you all a productive and enjoyable day!
