Busy Weekend

Well, here comes the Fall crunch for many of us! It seems to be such a busy time of year. I hosted two parties this weekend and I am beat. I managed to get all my Halloween decorations down today and get out my Thanksgiving things. I found the perfect place for the darling Rosemary dolly that I won in a give-away from the very talented Julie of The Ruby Nest! Isn't she just adorable? Check out Julie's primitive painted dolls. They look and feel like leather and would make awesome Christmas gifts--I think she even writes special things on them now!

I almost finished 3 paintings this weekend too. They are all Thanksgiving themed with primitive crackling. I have a slight problem though. Now that the time has changed, I will never get home before dark to photograph them outside. Any suggestions? I need to devise some type of little light room box or something. Hopefully, I will be able to post them soon!

I am still working on stocking my Etsy shop too. For those of you who even knew, I am no longer being represented by Find Folk Art with Heather Galler. It was a difficult decision, but I decided to go it alone. There are some very talented artists in the group and it was a valuable learning experience for me. I was honored to be asked to be a part of such a neat group, but I just felt it wasn't the right thing for me. I will still be selling my original paintings on Ebay and the links are at the top of my page as always. Have a wonderful week everyone!

I really like the doll too! I've made this type and they are time consuming to say the least! I will look forward to your new paintings when you get the camera thing figured out. :)

Oh! A while ago I read somewhere about creating a light box out of those plastic storage bins. I wish I could remember where I read the instructions for it but I'm sure google could give you some ideas. I actually tried that plastic storage bin idea and it worked well. I lined it with white tissue paper and used clamp lights.
