Hey there!

So I promise I haven't fallen off the face of the planet :) Due to some family issues that have come up I haven't really had as much time to sit & paint.....BUT I do have new photos of the newest piece I have finished!

This piece was not done for a customer, but for myself. Where I come from there are tons of cute little boutique shops just filled to the brim with hand-painted and handcrafted items. I really haven't found that to be the case so far here o nthe West coast.......but maybe I just haven't checked the right places?

Either way I wanted something fun, something colorful, and something one-of-a-kind for my home. Originally this was going to be somewhere for me to sit while I was fixing my make-up and hair in the mornings.......but I love it so much I may end up keeping it downstairs as an actual barstool. Who DOESN'T want to see a big strong Marine perched on a hot pink stool? :) Enjoy, and I will be sure to post more pics as I go along.......I really enjoyed working on furniture & have a feeling this will NOT be the last piece I do!

Love & Cupcakes!

Been awhile......

Hi there!

I am still here and working :) I actually have been finishing up some orders from my Etsy shop-------while not that many in NUMBER they were some of the most time-consuming of all I do!

I hope everyone had a nice 4th------it was very nice for us as a family as, this time last year my husband was on a plane for Iraq. It was WONDERFUL to be able to celebrate as a family-----and made me just as thankful to the other Marines (and military in general) that were NOT here with their families.

I have several projects in the works------some of whom I hope to have finished by this month's Vendor Fair on the 18th :) I also have been working on my business with Scentsy---- an AMAZING company with even mre amazing products. Check some of them out above!
You don't even have to go through me to place your order-----you can just order through the site, like with any online shopping! Keep in mind that the new catalogs come out in September, so grab your favorites now as some are being phased out!
