NEW Handmade Penny Candy Dolls

Ranger Designer Challenge 2015

Jan 16, 2015

It’s always so exciting to be invited to participate in the Ranger Designer Challenge.

New Year and New Goals

Jan 6, 2015

I’ve had some ideas for canvas art swirling around my head for quite some time and this year my goal is to act on these ideas.

But I’m not sure when they will be available as I first need to finish the painting. One thing I did figure out is I cannot paint in vintage tones I have to paint in bright colors which I find rather odd. I’m also still de-stashing my studio. If you would like some...
