Artichoke and another snowman~

Thank you sweet ladies for all your comments on my previous post. I love all your words of encouragement!

Here’s the outcome of the artichoke attempt. It’s not bad, but I think I’ll keep playing with the design, then maybe offer the pattern for it. I’m also working on a pattern for a different kind of pineapple. We’ll see how it turns out!



Finished this guy up late last night.

I’m loving the way the dry brush paint on the heads look. I can see this guy holding a heart for Valentines too! Then he’d be a long winters friend.

It’s very cold here this morning, but the sun is shining and the forecast said high 40’s, whoohoo!  I’m not a cold weather person, by any means. Give me sun, mid 70’s and sandy beaches and I’m a happy girl! Guess I was a beach bum in a previous life. Smiles….

Well, gotta make my rounds today~ selling booth, consignment shops, then back to working on some more snowies. Time sure if flying by!

Have a wonderful and creative day!

Merry Blessings, Jean
