More of the girls at the Retreat

It's so hard to believe this was taken so many years ago...2007...what a lovely group of ladies sharing at Nancy's Potter House Retreat

It snowed more last night

Good morning, yes it snowed a (slowly) during the night and only ended up with another 2 inches.  It's amazing how little altogether we got the past 4 days.  I've so enjoyed sitting by the fire creating some more paintings of old barns, and capturing more photos of all the birds looking for food.  

This morning I've been trying to visit as many of your blogs as I can, but know it's going to take days and hours to catch up only to start all over again.  So, I am hoping and praying all you out there are enjoying your day...whatever you are doing, creating new art, cleaning the house, or doing the best job you can wherever you might be working. 
 Take a minute to thank God for all HE does for you....where would we be if we didn't have HIS promises for everlasting life because of Christ Jesus dying for our sin on the Cross at Calvary.  Just think about it...makes goosebumps come up on my skin when I think about how enormous it is.

Woke to snow falling!

Woke in the middle of the night to see light snow morning we had about an inch and a half.  It was so breathtaking to see all the trees covered with an inch of snow..beautiful, white fluffy snow.  I've captured many photos of the early birds feeding off the front and back deck....yes I threw out fresh seeds...I love watching them clammer together to get their share don't you?  I hope I'm able to post some of my recent photos so you can see what I've been up to of late.  God is keeping me create some new barn paintings and making lots of Chemo if anyone needs one or two do let me know.  Most of them are winter hats...Blessings as we get near the weekend...for us here in VA we expect a sizeable snow starting late tonight into you all!!!

Had a great day!

Gee what a carefree day I had yesterday!  Got some things done around the house early then posted this painting of the first painting for Lee.  Went to the Fire Hall where about 15 ladies in our neighborhood meet the second Thursday of the month. We take turns contributing to that lunch...I need to think about doing something soon.  Edie, my neighbor across the street visited a huge pot of vegetable and beef soup, Awesome...
Then I drove to Joannes for some new yarn...making Chemo hats....a couple to our dear cousin Stacy...I have one finished and will have the other one done tomorrow. Yeppie!  From there I went next door to Big Lots...I'd always concidered it much like the Dollar Stores, but am happy to relate I found lots of goods there...This I use, but less expensive than the grocery store.   Walmart was calling to me and was my last destination...thank God..I was beginning to feel tired.

Wasn't hard to spend over $100.00 but got everything on my list....yes if I didn't create a list I'd forget was too much!!!

I finished the painting for Karen that I posted and now have as my Title's a little different, but then I try not to do anything exactly like any I've painted...
Here it is...and I wanted to share the Sunrise I captured this morning..  I guess you noticed I changed the Title of my blog..I really wanted it to represent what I choose to post here...and since I share mostly the things I create this sounds much better...God is the one who gave me the urge and ability to paint...I"m not a Fine Arts by any means, but it's what I call, God's gift to me...
Happy Weekend to all, and a very Happy New Year...(((hugs)))  My puter won't let me post a picture right now so I'll come back later and post the painting I did for Karen and the sunrise taken today!!!

A little about me!

My photo

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!!!
