Fall Show Schedule

Here it schedule for the fall.  I'm teaming up with my friend Diane again this year.  Autumn will be at Art in the Park with us as well.  I finally talked Diane into a name and she followed mine.  Twiddlebugz is what I've called my kids forever.  She called hers Doodlehoppers.  Together I think it makes a fun name...we even had some business cards made with Twiddlebugz & Doodlehopperz for this season.  We hope to see you out shopping at our shows. We've got some fun and unique stuff for you this year. 

Show and Tell Friday

Yeah, yeah, I's Saturday.  But I've been busy don't you know.  I've picked up a position as florist at an event venue for weddings and I've met with 4 brides over the last week and a half.  No bridezillas so far.  
I've also been to cutting wood in the morning and evenings when it is halfway tolerable outside.  I've got plenty to paint for a day or two.  This ghost is a blend of retail and handmade.  I got the BOO from the store when it closed.  It was actually a double sided, free standing piece.  I tore it apart and what you see here is the back side letters.  I took them apart, re-attached them in layers to a ghost I cut and painted for them, added some garland and...tadaa...a super cute piece for Halloween.  I get double for my money on the BOO, and totally changed the piece.  I cut four ghosts so far, I need to cut eight more.  Each is it's own unique character, making them all one of a kind...sorta. 
Friday, I went back to orthopedics for my knees.  We are getting authorization for gel injections for both of them.  This is a 3 injection process I am kinda anxious about (I've heard they're painful but my threshold and tolerance is pretty high) but I've cortisone injections for about 5 years now along with having both knees scoped (one twice).  In the mean time, I got a round of a different cortisone shots yesterday and they feel fabulous today.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Show & Tell Friday

Okay, I's Sunday evening.  But I figured better late than never.  Fall has really invaded my brain and I am loving it.  Pumpkins are on the top of my list and I've been painting on metal buckets and watering cans.  I am pleased with the way they are turning out. Great all the Autumn.  Have a great week everyone.

Cassy turns 5!

Yup, our little girl is 5 years old today.  Seems like just yesterday we got her.  She's a perfect match for us...she loves to explore, ride ATVs, go to BBQ contests, camp, and more.  We couldn't ask for anything more.  Happy Birthday Cassy!

Show and Tell Friday

Did you ever wonder if you were going to see another Show & Tell Friday from me again?  I was.  Since I am not working at the store anymore I am finding time to paint a few things between some much needed deeper cleaning and upkeep around here.  I painted two of these french buckets this week...even got a pattern packet written up for it.  I forgot how long that takes, but I am pretty detailed on directions.   I also painted up two mini chests these two mini chests last week for a friend.  I like the way they turned out.  Originally, they had some teacup theme silkscreened onto them...much better now.  Have a great weekend everyone, I'll see you again next week.

Happy Birthday Chris!!!

It's hard to believe my baby is 24 today...where does the time go. 
Seems like time flies in the blink of an eye. 
Chris just enjoyed a trip to Kolob Reservoir with friends.  His dog, Shelby went along.  They both had a great time fishing, kayaking, and hanging out with friends. 
Chris loves his truck.  He just put new tires on it...and he had to try them out to see what they could do on a recent trip to St. George. 
Chris is an awesome young man!  I love him to pieces.  Happy Birthday my dear!
