I am hoping to add my art onto this blog...stay tuned!

This is a watercolor of stripes of colors from a blanket we got from my grandma for a wedding present. I love all the rich colors in it- it was really fun to paint.

This is a water color of Poppy flowers. I copied a picture from a magazine. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out at first, but I ended up liking it in the end.

We just got some old chairs that someone form our church was going to throw away. Here is the before and after. I Spray painted them white and recovered them with some new fabric from Vogue Fabric in Evanston!

Today I had a day off from work and decided to take pictures of our house so our Minnesota and Michigan family can see where we live. Enjoy!

April 2011

Apparently it's hard to delete blogs. I tried to delete mine a while ago...I even googled "how to delete blogs" and I couldn't figure it out. Here I am in April 2011 ready to give it another go! Hope I can keep up!
