Ok, I was up at 5am got my hubby off to work then settled down at the dining room table creating some more little ACEOs & ATCs...I put two in my etsy shop the day before yesterday...they are featured in the last post here, and the sold!!! Wow that was quick, and the first two I've ever sold...yep...guess I've been creating the wrong kind..hehhehe!!
Here are a couple I did today one of which is for my precious little sister, Mary...if you haven't checked out her blog please do. http://asplendidadventure.blogspot.com

As we traveled on I tried to capture some of the buildings, and landscapes we were seeing, but as usual we were traveling too fast for me to capture much. We enjoyed a nice meal at a Chinese Restaurant then headed back home only to see hugh dark clouds appearing as we got closer. Rain was coming down in buckets as we reached Rt 522! There were times we had to slow to a creep when we couldn't see a foot infront of us. (We later discovered the winds were up to 60 miles an hr.) Cars were pulled off to the side of the road traffic going the other direction was at a stand still because of several huge trees the wind blew across the road. Luckily only tree limbs scattered our road...as we reached home the rains had slowed some keeping us from get drenched.
It's amazing how just one good rainfall can reverse all the damage done by weeks of little or no rain. I can actually see new growth this morning!!! Yey!!!
Have a wonderful week creating!!!

*Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
*S** **Ask the individual to SMILE.
*T** **Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. It is sunny out today.)
*R* *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number *immediately *and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.
New Sign of a Stroke:
Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.
These are very simple steps to take when you suspect someone is having a stroke..it could be that a person stumbles, falls and when helped up says he/she is just fine...hrs later only to find that person was rushed to the emergency room and later died....Drs say if they can reach a person having a stroke in the first 3 HOURS they can totally reverse the effects of a stroke.
Hope everyone is having a great day...Bevie

Good morning to all those who happen by my blog. The first photo is of a little seascape done in acrylic paints I'm working on right now. The other is of a tree filled with lovely hearts...a little whimsy makes me smile does it do that to you too??
I guess I love doing Whimsical and folksy paintings the best..there's something about creating something that really makes you feel good inside, and the hopes it does the same to those who see it. I was notified just yesterday that one ov my 11x14 paints done on canvasboard sold on June 29th...couldn't believe I just found the message...I have it all ready to go out in the mail today!!! Thank you Jennifer....
This is the painting...
I pray that you all are well, and enjoying all the blessings God has given you!!!

Here's a couple photos of what the bathroom looks like today...with all the remodeling we've done over the past 4 yrs we would have been better off downing this little home, and putting up a modular at least everything would be new..ehehhe!!! This trailer was made back in 1978! I don't want to speculate what will go bad next..ehehhehe!!! Sure hope you 4th of July Holiday doesn't start out this way!!!
Blessings to all for a very safe and happy holiday!!!

A little about me!
Am married to a great guy and we've raised 5 of his and my children...they have blessed us with 14 grandchildren. My passion is creating all forms of art, and handmade jewelry. On the side I still make some bouquets for weddings and enjoy playing with our 3 pugs. Living in the mountains gives us such a sense of freedom as we are on 5 acres filled with tall old trees surrounding our little home...we have all kinds of wildlife visiting us daily!!!
