Queen of the Castle!!

I got another big surprise a couple months ago, when Stampington & Company contacted me and told me one of my crowns was selected for its 2010 Somerset Home magazine! I was so thrilled and honored -- and it occurred to me that so much of my success is truly due to all of you who have been such wonderful, supportive colleagues and good friends over the years. So, I titled the article "Queen of the Castle" - because, after all, isn't that what we are? :-)

So, I dedicate this to all of you - the queens of your castles!! Check out page 48, and enjoy!!

Mermaids, Wood, and Words - A Great Combo!!

OK so you know I love to do mermaids. They just seem so right painted on old wood panels and doors -- gives it that vintage, nautical look -- and then, add some appropriate words to it, and voila! It's a mermaid sign! One of my favorite items to paint, and a good seller too. Here's some examples....hope you're having a great summer!!
