Gothic Victorian Library Project

    This library project for the kiddo is my favorite, period. I’ll be sharing more projects that we’ve done and have shared other projects, but this library will remain my favorite. It’s quite a transformation and was the most work but, it turned out perfect. This was a gift of love from us to…

Yummy Raspberry Freezer Jam

  I love fall! Don’t you? It’s my favorite season and I always wish it would last so much longer! Fall in New Mexico is fabulous. We get some much needed precipitation and relief from the unrelenting summer heat. Then, there are the raspberries! And don’t forget about Balloon Fiesta, or all New Mexicans favorite,…

Garden Goals

Last week all the renovations became a little too much to live with. It has been about 9 months of work so far, which means, we’re beginning to wear out a bit. I’m looking forward to the stage where I just have projects around, instead of renovations. When things get a little overwhelming, we like…

Too Many Painting Projects!

I realized last night as I was trying to fall asleep, I just have too many painting projects going on at one time!  Paint, paint, paint! Currently, I’m working on our cement block fence, which is too ugly for words, but paint always helps! Then, I’m working on the mural in my studio, a hallway…

Projects

I call them projects, but what’s really going on in my life, is renovation. We’ve entered the final phase, at least for this year of the construction, on my kiddos side of the house that we’re turning into an apartment for him. It’s been a whole lot of hard work, dust, muss and so on……

Another Barn Door Project

Yesterday, I was walking out of the CVS pharmacy minding my own business, when out of nowhere, I slipped, tripped and fell off of a curb of all things! Resulting in an avulsion fracture in my old injured right foot, so I’m laid up in a splint for 6-8 weeks. Thirty four years ago, when…

Our Desert Boho, Entryway Project

Another corner in my home is finally finished!  Also, I’ve adjusted  the Desert Decor Project arrangement. (I posted about that project a little while ago)  But first! The entryway. When we moved in, the interior side of the door in our entry way was, a pale peach color. While pale peach is a lovely color,…

Faux Brick Wall Project, Plus an Update

I find myself,.. not in the studio of late. We have  so many projects going on (including a few in the studio itself) at the moment, and I’m consumed by them!  I’m not sure if it works this way for other artists, but for myself all of my creative processes become totally focused on projects…

A new giveaway!

Last weeks giveaway was a huge success! Congratulations to the winners! This week I’m holding another giveaway on both my facebook and Instagram accounts to celebrate that I now have this piece available as a print on canvas! It’s also called a giclee. Here it is!   I’m very excited to have my original, “Love…

The Tuesday Announcement!

I’m terribly excited! Molly’s super excited! Snickers is somewhat excited! I hope you think it’s exciting! I’m trying to see how many times I can work the word, excited into this post! Ok…….so here’s the big exciting announcement! After much work, and lots of trial and error. I’m excited to announce, that all the errors…

Finding Wonder from Chaos

If you’ll notice, my title did not say order from chaos! I would never claim to achieve order, that would be very silly of me! (I must accept my limitations you know!) Instead, I found wonder in chaos. This last week we’ve been doing a little renovating on our house, continuing onward to our goal…

Desert Decor Project

When we put up our crazy barn door system, I felt that the wall space was too bare. Since the door moves across the wall you can’t put anything on the wall itself, so I thought I’d like  something simple in front of the wall. It needed to be simple because this is also part…
