New Christmas Spoon

I finished another hand painted vintage silver tablespoon to be listed for sale this week on Etsy.

"Gods and Monsters" Show at The Candy Factory

 This was my piece, I wasn't sure at first about entering it as I thought it wouldn't fit in. I'm now glad that I did as it did fit perfectly with the other works.

This is the first time I've had a piece of my art in a showing in over 10 years. I,m glad that I was able to overcome my apprehensions and entered the show. I really want to get working on more, join more groups and keep moving forward with my art. While at the show I also got to say hello to and meet some more of my friends from Twitter. This was overall a positive experience for me!!

New Works

My daughter Jessica and I have been working on painting items to prepare for the Lititz craft fair next year. Here are two of the vintage silver spoons that I painted this week. I will be listing them for sale on my Etsy shop along with the ones that Jessica also painted.

Here is another slate that I created recently. This along with others will be listed this week for sale in my Etsy shop.

These are all the recent hand painted pieces by my daughter Jessica, these will also be lited this week in my Etsy shop!

 Four more spoons painted by Jessica that we will be listing for sale on Etsy.

And here is a small slate ornament that I painted.

{Echo} Week 21 - Portals

This photo is inside a caboose at the Lititz Springs Park. I thought it was a good portrayal for the theme Portals. I took this photo only using the FX app on my phone.

New Jewelry Designs - Sneak Peek

Cleaning out my studio space I discovered that I had these vintage typewriter keys. They them from an old typewriter that was thrown in the trash. I decided to take them and design pieces of jewelry. I took pages from a vintage dictionary and ran them through the paper shredder to make strips. Doing this saved me a lot of cutting and made the exact size and width I was looking for. It also gave the paper strips that ragged edge I was looking for. I am not yet revealing the design until I have a few more made, keep an eye out later this week!!
