What I did before making cards...

AND....Look what I got in the mail today!


Donna is such an awesome person! It's like in the short time I have 'known' her, she knows how I'm feeling, or what I'm thinking even at times....freaky, haha! j/k! She sent me this card, telling me she was so tickled for me to be chosen for Gina's 'in the spotlight' designer for this next release (WHICH is next week by the way...can we say EXCITED??!!) She made me feel like just maybe my cards are ehh pretty good, lol. She knows I have no confidence in myself at all, so getting this, REALLY made my day. With all the other stuffs going on in my life right now, yep it sure did! Thank you sooo much Donna! You will never know how much it meant to me today...cause just typing these words cant express it.

Now, I HAVE been making cards. I have finished my final submissions for the Purple Onion Design Team position, which was 3 cards. I have also gotten several cards done for next week too, but alas, cant show ANY of those...BUT, I will say this much...This Gina K release...WOW!! Get excited...its worth it!! Look for the first sneak peak on Tuesday! I actually even LIKE my card I made for it! WOOT! LOL!

I thought I'd post a picture of a little thingy I painted back last year about this time. This is what I was into, painting...on everything, lol. Not just on wood, on anything that I could paint on...glass, canister sets, coasters, plates...name it I was a painting it! LOL! This piece kinda makes me sad though. Apparently I didnt seal the wood good enough with sealer before sanding and painting it because when I drug it out of the shed to put out for this fall, I see spots from the wood coming through my painted areas...:( I'm still gonna hang it by the back door though. I put alot into it to just throw it away!

I thought it kinda fitting with all the fall stuff around. Like I said, drug all my fall stuff out of the shed today and got it set out, now if only the temps would cooperate! Been kinda warm during the day here, but night time at least feels like fall. I love this time of year!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Update tomorrow on stuffs with DH ex-job and future one...

I love your painting! I do some decorative painting... including tole painting too! Don't even think of throwing that awesome scarecrow away! Just think of the wood that's seeping through as making it more country - or antique? ;) It's great. Thanks for sharing it.
