Mollie Nevada 

A sweet littl name for a sweet little girl. 

I did this quick little painting in acrylic on canvas. My brushes were getting a little rough after all the extra use this month, but it turned out ok all the same. 

Wedding signs

My younger brother MacGyver is getting married next month.  I’m so excited for him and his sweet bride to be.

I have several other signs to make this week. I’m so blessed to get to do what I love to do for the people I love. This glorious sunshine is a nice bonus. 🙂

Christmas is right around the corner! As much as I appreciate Nordstrom’s declaration that they will not deck the halls until after Thanksgiving. For a hand made grifter like myself, getting a little bit of a head start is a necessity. 

   
 
Acrylic paint on bamboo.  

Refinished wooden puzzles

I’ve had these little wooden puzzles for a while. I didn’t take any “before” pictures, but they were generic, primary and just screamed for a makeover. Especially since many of the shapes for the alphabet one were so obtuse, you could hardly tell the H from the N. It was bad.  So I peeled off the plastic coating and broke out my acrylics.

  
I decided to put the lower case letters underneath instead of pictures of things beginning with the letters. My oldest son is in first grade and it seemed like a good idea to help him distinguish between the upper and lower case letters.   
    
Heart people are one of my go to illustrations for my kid’s brown bag lunches. With three boys, it’s about as cute as I’m allowed to get. It is also preferable for the heart people to be funny or amusing somehow.  

 
This is one of my favorite groups. Everyone is dancing except for the one poor confused fellow who looks as if he’s not sure what he’s just walked into. 🙂
