New Art!

This year has been such a blur so far! I am finally getting back to my painting and I have a lot to show you over the next couple of weeks.  This one is entitled “Vintage Wishes”  It is 12x12in. on  canvas, done in acrylic and mixed media.  I love the neutral vintage tones combined with the bright colors! Stay tuned for more! I have been working on being a little more free with my paintings, so you never know what’s up next!

Sketches and goals 2016

Recently I bought a sketch book with the goal of picking up a pencil and practicing a little bit more. While I haven’t had the time to draw in detail, I have had an opportunity to sketch out some of my long term goals for the future. 

After doing this, I have decided that drawing goals may be the new way to write down goals as it is more interesting and really allows your imagination to visualize the goal 🙂

Here they are:

This Years Secret to a Beautiful Christmas Tree

beautiful (2)

I love the holidays, mostly for the decorating! I love creating new looks for my Christmas tree every year, and this year is no different.  I think color coordinating and planning out a design, give a room a professional look and a cozy, relaxing feel.

This year, I did red and white.  I love the idea of snow covered trees and candy canes which is what my living room reminds me of.  There is one thing that set this tree off and made it stand out a lot more.  That is the addition of giant red glittery shear bows! (I really wish you could see how they shine through your computer screens.) The bows almost glow with the warm white light shining through.  I think secondly, the white tinsel give the tree a lot of contrast.

So that is my secret to a beautiful Christmas tree for 2015!  Be sure to visit my site at to see some beautiful natural art and furniture!

Chalkboard Dresser: A fun gift for your child!

Yay! Finally I have started creating again! I have several projects in the works, so stay tuned for more updates as I progress. Holidays always seem to be crazy!

Here is something fun for a kids room. A nice dresser that is meant for drawing on! This is great for drawing practice, reading and organization (in a fun way).

This is my newest piece, a chalkboard dresser. It was extremely easy to do, just paint with chalk paint, add some knobs and boom! Dresser!

I also added a fox picture on the side to add to the animal themed knobs. Check it out! Remember, I can always create a custom piece just for you!
