Very busy of late

Hello everyone,

First of all I would like to thank those of you that have left me comments on FB and on here as well during the recent loss of my father. As sad as I am I am relieved that he no longer suffers from the devastating disease of dementia. Such a terrible condition to those affected and loved ones. I think of him daily and  have  many fond memories of him. I love you Dad .

 I have not blogged in quite some time but since returning from out west I have been so busy. Craft show season is upon me and I am going to be teaching another class at my local library in December. I forgot to take a picture of what we will be doing but it is going to be a lot of fun. A mixed media canvas, a paper tree with layers of different Christmas paper, Stickles glitter glue, stencilling, paint and a whole lot of fun. 
I found this tutorial on Pinterest and if I get a chance to get a picture of what I did I will post it but it has been taken to the library as a sample. There are 4 people signed up already even without seeing what I did. 
The stocking was a huge hit with the girls I think they are waiting for more fun, at least I hope so. Woohoo, I find instructing a lot of fun and very rewarding. So nice to see others faces after they completed the project. Simple painting with a little how to and before you know masterpieces are complete. 

I recently had a craft show and I did quite well. I have 2 more and they are keeping me busy. Gourds are a hit again this year and some signs, ornaments and canvases as well. I was shocked at the lovely comments, peeps asking if I had a store, no I don't and don't intend on it but peeps were willing to take my little cards and many wanted to know if I could paint things for them in the future. Anyways a good show and my next one is this Friday and  Saturday. I have done  this show 2 years already and always a good crowd and well advertised. 
Just checking in and letting you know I am still around. I hope to be able to post a pic or two in the next few days of a few things I just finished up.
Take care and always love to hear from you.
TTFN, ♥♥♥
