Welcome Spring!

WELCOME SPRING!!
Sun is shinning, birds singing, tulips and daffodils are blooming!
Taxes mostly done...off to be audited.
Ready to go out and enjoy the sunshine!
Even spring cleaning sounds tolerable!
OK, just a bit at a time!

I have been cleaning and listing Tole Painting books and surfaces on Etsy.
Links are here:

Hope you all are enjoying your first day of Spring!

TAXES....

This is what every corner of my house looks like right now...
TAXES!
Every year I say I will do a monthly total and get all organized.
It is now March and once again I am now three months behind-just this year.
Once I get them all done I know I will not look at paper again until sometime next year.
Does any of this sound familiar?
So yet again I piled another stack and painted.
I can justify this because it makes me happy to paint and this was a quick pattern to do.
Now to spread the paper work around and look like I did some thing with it all today before my husband comes home!
I am only in charge of MY business taxes...so sad!
Well off to shuffle paper.
Wish me luck!
Enjoy your day, evening, tomorrow....you know where I will be!

March is.....

 March is National Craft Month!
So here is my excuse to hang downstairs in the basement and craft on!!
Just a few of the things I have been working on.
Love the bunnies....I think I will have to stencil hearts on to these two frames...not sure yet.
 Playing with colors and new designs--always fun!
 Love the barn wood too.
Need to get the radial arm saw out and start cutting up some barn wood to paint on. 

 Love these swags...one has a purple 3-D bird at the bottom and the other one has a 3-D frog!
I think I am starting this month out right--crafting up a storm.
And as we all know that is my therapy!
The Old Farmhouse Gathering Blog is featuring one of my tutorials.
Click HERE to check it out!
Hope you all have your craft on for this month!
Enjoy your day,
Barb
