huge "sigh"

things around my household never calm down. My husband is in the hospital once again. I have had no time to do any art. We are remoldeling our home by ourselves and we also babysit out 2 yr old granddaughter so we try to get some things done before we have to watch her. With all of my disabilities from my car accident it is very hard for me physically to do all these things but lord knows I try. I have maybe 2 days to myself which then I try to work on art or the house. I did create a board on pinterest of some of my work if you care to take a look. I hope to have some new items for Christmas to sell on E-bay. My daughter starts college in September and then I will have all day to myself to play since my granddaughter will be at her aunties for the days my daughter has classes to give this old lady a break. I can handle watching her 6-8 hrs a day but not 15-18. I look forward to sharing some new work soon. Please bare with me while I try to get my life and family back in order.                                                                                                                 http://pinterest.com/reppiks327/codys-keepsakes-kathrens-board/

more past work......

more pictures of my past work that I thought I would share. I am going to try and paint today. I started a project about 2 months ago but since I have been sick and on bed rest I haven't been able to work on it. Have a great day!!

Well once again I am on bed rest until this blood clot has dissolved. I can't walk on my leg because of the swelling and the pain that I am having so my art is once again on the back burner. So I though I would share some of my past work.....hope you enjoy!!!

long week....

last week was a long week for me.....I spent 4 days in the hospital with a blood clot in my leg and some other complications from the injuries I received in my near fatal car accident last Nov. But I am home now and have been getting better. We finally finished remodeling the living room and got the house somewhat back in order. I started a few new items which will hopefully be ready by next week. Right now I am working on items that I am donating to a relay for life cancer show for a friend, her son passed away from brain cancer. After those items are done and finished I will get back to work on items I plan to put on e-bay. I am also going to start getting things around to finish my studio. I pretty much know everything I would like to do and the colors I want. I can't wait until it is all done. I hope everyone had a safe and happy, fun July 4th weekend.

I have been absent for a bit. We have been remodeling the house. The first room was the living room. The next project will be my studio. I can't wait to get back to work.

We have been pretty busy here at home. Today my Studio arrived. I am so excited. Before I can start doing anything to it we have to wait until the Living room is all done. Right now it is all stripped right down to the studs. My honey is doing the wiring and adding instillation. Then the drywall guy will be here Monday. Then we will paint it. THEN my honey has to do the electrical work and instillation in my studio and drywall it and then we can paint it and start filling it with all my craft stuff that is in the attic. I have so many ideas I'm going nuts.

                                               Front view, I just love the french doors.
 We painted the front porch last week and I love it. I bought a bunch metal stars and painted them white instead of painting them. Need a few more decorations and it will be complete. We also painted the floor red.

I am still working on the table top I started painting. Worked on it some yesterday then we had company. But I'll be back at it today. Hope everyone is having a great week.
