New Colors!

Sort of. I went from red and green last month to red and pink this month and now I'm working on green again. Am I in a rut? Let's hope Easter brings about some change for me. although I think mint green will still be around!
Meanwhile, THESE are crackin me up....
...and I'll tell you why...
...because of a certain question a particular person asks...in a movie...
Are you confused yet?
Let me help you.

"You just have to ask yourself this question. Do you feel lucky?
Well, do ya.....PUNK!!!!

A Valentine Giveaway! (CLOSED)

I finally got my act together and got a few things finished so I could share them with you. My family and I have been under the weather and it's been hard finding the time to work on my favorite hobby however, as time (and on occasion) medication permits, the sickness eventually leaves.
I don't know how many of you celebrate Valentine's Day. I acknowledge it with 'wink and a nod' every since I got pregnant with one of my 6, but I do love the colors and the idea of 'love effulgent, love divine'.
 Take a look at some of these.
(The word blocks you've already seen)
...cut from 2x3s with vinyl lettering...

...cut from 2x4's with vinyl lettering applied...

...measures about 7"l x 6" w; also has vinyl lettering....
Do you know someone who's 'One in a Melon"?
I think all of you are!! (I know...sappy, sappy...)

This busy buzzzzy bee has been around the block a few times....eeek, I forgot to glue his wings on before I took the pic!!

Already sold a few of these!
This set has been included in 4 different Treasuries on Etsy. They're cut from 1.5's and the lettering is vinyl...

I LOOOOOVVVE my Heart Garlands! This one's been decoupaged! It's about 30" long and the large heart is 11" in length.

This one's done up Prim-like! They're cut from rough pine plywood, sanded lightly, and then brushed with a couple of coats of different colors of paint. They're all wired together and tied off with homespun. This one has some burlap, too!!
You know I like to give you choices. It helps me to know what people are looking at and what might be good for my shop.

Here's a few chances for you to win:
1. Leave me a comment and let me know which item you like.
2. Let me know if you're a follower or become one.
3. Become a fan of my FB page (my badge is on the right side of my blog). You can let me know in the same comment if you already are one.
4. Blog about this or share it on your blog side bar or spread it around on your FB status: It's all GOOD!! But let me know you did in the same comment or a new one.
I'm going to run this one through Monday. You can come back Tuesday morning, January 25, 2011, and I'll have a winner announced that morning. (Around 9:00 a.m. EST)
Please make sure you leave a way for me to contact you ( i.e. email or something if you do not have a Google Account).
(Because of International shipping prices, this Giveaway has to stay within the boundaries of the U.S.)

Thanks for coming by!

Nearing the Finish

I've had a cold but I've managed to clean off my table of all things 'valentiney'. That's a good feeling when you accomplish what you set out to do. I've loaded these onto my Etsy store but I'm saving back some of the cuteness for you....at the end of this week.

Hope you come back and see me soon!

Still Seeing Red...

...but it's combined with a little more pink!
Loading up these and a few more on Etsy.

Still have a few more to paint so I can have a Giveaway soon!
It's getting cold here again and I can't get out to use my tools in weather below 50 degrees so my garlands will have to wait for a few more days.
I've already designed a couple of things for St. Pat's Day and my list is growing for all things Easter! Gosh, it just makes the months move that much faster when I think ahead like that!
Hope you're all doing well and come back to see me soon!

Back to Work! (For Real This Time)

Do you hear that?? Do ya, huh, huh, huh??!!!!
Yep, well neither do I!!
The 'sounds of silence' are in my home once again!
I've spent the New Year's weekend doing what I love best!
I started off by making a list...
...cutting out the shapes...
...sanding them down...
...stacking them up...
...and adding some color!
Lots of hearts, cupcakes, and sweetie pies, bumblebees, and teddy bears with there honey!
I'm hoping to have a Giveaway in about 2 weeks time. Holidays abound and there is ALWAYS something to celebrate! I'd sure like to share some with you!
Hope your New Year rang in the way you wanted it to!
