I have been a busy Bee the last few days. :) Kind of back to my regular pace. Still have the pain, but I have been in such a mood to paint lately, that I am being bad, working long hours and not resting. Naughty !! lol I go through stages with painting. I started selling on ebay about two and a half years ago, and in that time I have listed between 4-10 items per week on average. Added up, that is a LOT of painting. Some weeks I can hardly look at my paint brush, and then others I cant paint fast enough for the ideas in my head. My Etsy stuff, the paper crafts is Always a joy for me. To me it is Fun, Fun, Fun !!! I never get tired of glue or glitter. Speaking of glitter, look at the little glitter shakers I painted for myself this week. I bought them to sell, and then decided I needed them. You know, NEEDED them. lol Like my life was somehow incomplete without designer shakers. lol
I LOVE these pretty jars !!! One of those things I should keep, but am selling. I love this shade of aqua. I cant seem to have enough of it around me. It is such a serene happy color.
Not sure I like this tray or not. I do that a lot. I paint something that I just LOVE and hate to part with, and then it barely sells, and then I paint something that I think, well, its OKAY. And then people fight over it. I guess I have no taste. lol. I think it is important though as an artist to always try new things, and to be open to the creative process. Even if you are hating the direction it is going. I am just not Loving this tray. I guess we are our own worst critics.
However, I LOVE my new " Baby Cakes" cupcake. EEEEK !!! This is cute !!!! :)
I made a special order for a sweet lady this week. She wanted a nesting basket. The sheer pastel springiness makes me happy. :) ( I have 6 more almost done, just need the final touches )
These lamps were fun to redo. I just love recycling old stuff and giving it new purpose. Silly me, I forgot to take before pics. I have had these in the garage forever waiting their turn. They were pretty cheesy looking, let me tell ya. There was ORANGE paper on them. lol Yuck !!! There was an orange paper circle in the centers looked like a big ugly 70's orange bullseye. lol I think they look much better. :)
More Birdage. Love sweet birds, houses and nests. :) I think because birds are so cheery and that is my nature. I am happy for the most part, sing while I am working and love my nest.
Ok, enough weirdness. lol.
