Oh what fun !

In my last post I mentioned getting back into my love of dolls. Since then I have been hunting for them everywhere I go....lol I went from the few dolls I had from my childhood to a whole new family of them . I'm not even sure how many I have found this last month. I love rescuing them . I have a My size Barbie who was a mess and now she is so pretty and has a new hairdo.Manyyyyyy Ginny's an American Girl and my last one is one I have been dreaming of finding and there she was at the Salvation Army for 4.99. Can you believe that ? I wish I had taken pictures of them before I gave them a make over . I just get so excited, I have to do their hair first thing. I will post Miss Revlon in her outfit she came in which is in rough shape. Now I have to find some patterns for a new wardrobe .... Im so excited! If you have some favorites, please tell us about them.

New section at Color Your World

A Quick note to everyone,
I have decided to create a Mini Gallery at the shop. With the economy what it is and people still wanting to buy Art for their Home and friends,It seems like a good idea. I have been enjoying the process very much and it even inspired me to take a class myself.I have been taking classes in oils again and really enjoy being on the other side of the table for a change. Check in and see the final project....I'm not sure I should be telling you at this point.....lol Who knows what it will look like in the end. I may have to hide it in the closet.
As Always, Pat

It's been a long time

Hi Everyone,
It's been a long time since I last posted. I guess I'm not a winter person and I seem to hibernate in the winter. Although I still paint and make all sorts of paper crafts. I will start posting some new things . You may like to see some of my mini paintings. Which I will be selling at my studio. They range from inch to 8x10.
Please leave me messages and tell me what you think. My painting will be at this link.

Let me know if everything is working correctly as I am not a computer expert.

Fun Things For The New Year

Now that the new year has started, I thought I'd let you know what I have been planning for the 2011. I think I'm going through my second childhood because I am revisting an old passion, Dolls ! I have always loved them and I got to thinking of some of my old playmates. Most of which are long gone but I do have some special ladies that have stood the test of time with me. I also love making their clothes so I will be making some new outfits for them and others that I have recently bought and may share them with you as time goes by. Do any of you have some favorite dolls that you couldn't part with ? Feel free to share them with us. Right now I'm collecting the Ginny doll . I am also looking for a little Miss Revlon, she is a little pricey so it may be awhile before I can find one in nice condition. Being long out of touch with the doll world I recentley discovered the American Girl and am waiting for her to be delivered :) She looks like a fun size to create clothing for .
I have also been making soap for my shop and have my Valentine soaps made which is lightly scented Lilac ...mmmm yummy .I will post pictures.
Lastly I have been making earrings for valentines too . I am not giving up my paper crafts and painting I just needed to mix it up a little .
I have been wondering if any of you have new things in the offering and what they are ? Wouldn't it be fn to share your ideas with us ? Please feel free to tell us what your interests are lately .
Enjoy the winter months and keep on creating it's good for the soul.

Soon it will be Christmas

With Christmas soon upon us . I thought I'd share some of my favorite painted ornaments for this years trees. I love the little snowball people they just make you smile as you work to make more friends for them. Although my favorites have to be the scenes on four inch balls . The snow people have sold well in the shop, the scenery ornaments are just to expensive for this area so I will be selling them on line in the near future . I believe that will be my new venture for this year, opening an esty shop ! I have to broaden my horizions in order to be successful . I would love your input on the things I do and the plans I have for the future .
Here is to a Very Merry Christmas to you and yours may it be warm and loving.

We were so lucky to be invited attend our daughters and her husbands 25th anniversary which was held at the Pa. Allegany State Park. They rented these cute little cabins for their guests. It has been years since we have gone camping and the cabin was homey and warm. I of course had my supply of stamps, journal and supplies and crafted one cool night. The food was plentyful and yummy! A wonderful time was had by all.
