New Painting and A Cat Ornament

Hi! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Our Day started with a "Turkey Trot" 5K. My three daughters, my granddaughter and I all finished the race! It was a lot of fun and we decided that it will be an Annual Event! Next year we hope to get the men and dogs to join us. It's a family race...including dogs. We then had a great Thanksgiving dinner and a nap; so we could be with the rest of the crazy, Black Friday Shoppers. The 8 hours of shopping was a lot of fun, too!

I finally finished another ornament, a cat, and a painting inspired by Mr. Gatsby and his favorite toy, Martha Chicken. A Martha Stewart dog toy that Mr. Gatsby loves. I really enjoyed sewing, again, and painting on fabric...so, I think I'll be creating a few more Kitty Ornaments.

I hope everyone has a great week!!!

Christmas Ornament Time!

I watch Martha Stewart every morning. I find her show to be very inspirational and full of great ideas. Most of the time I don't actually get around to making the crafts, but the other day I was so enamored with Melissa Sweet's adorable Ornaments...I just had to make one of my own. I don't think it's quite finished, but pretty much. I plan to make a few more, too. They are so much fun! My granddaughter has one started, as well. I'll post a picture of her ornament when she's finished. Also, check out Melissa's book "Balloons Over Broadway".

Happy Friday, Everyone!!! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I have a lot of sewing, paper flower making and painting planned...we shall see what actually happens. I do know I want to spend some cozy time by the fire, looking out at the beautiful maple leaves! I love Autumn!!! I finally finished, Isabelle, and I have a new little cat painting...Holly. They will be in my Etsy shop by tomorrow. GusGus and I are heading out for our 2 mile walk in the forest now...before it rains.

Mr. Gatsby At Halloween...A little late

It's a little late, but I just have to share this picture of Mr. Gatsby on Halloween. He looked so cute in his Halloween sweater. Today I am going to start a painting of Mr. Gatsby with his favorite toy...Martha Chicken. Our daughter bought Mr. Gatsby one of Martha Stewart's dog toys at Pet Smart, and it's his favorite toy! It is pretty cute.
