Half & Half Ain't Just For Coffee Anymore!

Hi Everyone! Thought it was time to post some pictures of the most recent things I have finished :)
This first painting was more of an experiment as I loved the sketch, but did not know if I liked how it translated in a painting.....
Turns out I loved it & I have at least 2 more in
that "style" in the works. Have also included a close-up to see the 3-D detail :)

<-----This was Cliff's Father's Day gift. Why am I posting BEFORE Father's Day you ask? Because apparently when you work with little ones, they CAN'T KEEP A SECRET!
Either way he loved it as did I, and it's a great way to "mark" where the boys are size-wise for years to come.

Finally, this was the latest cupcake I worked on----she asked to include the colors black/white/silver and blue to match her kitchen. I NEVER get tired of the cupcakes!
So there you go-------I have a few more things in the works....but it just takes fun out of them to post before they are finished! As a follow-up to my last post----I did attend the EWC meeting and had a great time. The women there were incredibly warm and welcoming, and apparently they have a scheduled "activity" at each meeting, what was this month's? Painting. :) It's like they knew I was coming. We all painted ceramic tiles that the Hobby Shop on base donated-------when mine is fired I will post a pic, because....what do you think I painted on it?
*****Also, I would love to ask for YOUR input. I want to make more of my "funny food" smaller paintings. So far you have seen:
Salt & Pepper "A Perfect Pair"
Bacon & Egg " Involved & Committed"
Donut & Coffee "A Balanced Breakfast"
Sushi "Me Love You Long Time"
Sushi #2 "Sushi For One"
I want YOU to give me your ideas for more funny foods------there are some I have planned I just haven't painted yet.....but I would love to hear what you can come up with! So just leave a comment with your idea, and if I use it I will credit YOU with the inspiration.
I am off to finish organizing my Scentsy testers (did you know there are over 80 SCENTS? There really is something for everyone!), and to finish planning my "Scentsy Launch Party" for June 30th here at my home. If you will be in the area, be sure to drop by! And remember-----we have a beautiful Patriotic Burner for this month (Coconut Palm is the scent of the month...and is also 10% off!).....and next month is a Baseball burner and bubblegum scent!
Love & Cupcakes Everyone!
