Hearts, HEARTS and More HEARTS!

Hi Dear Friends!

Thanks again for your continued prayers!
I am encouraged and Blessed.

YEP, it's that time of year isn't it?
I have had somewhat of a creative lul.
I think after Christmas and all of the business
and creative juices that flow, I just plain run outta steam
after the first of the year.
I felt like I was in a slump.
Trying to figure out just what do I want to do.
I used to LOVE to paint roses...
well I guess I still do...
I wasn't doing this regularly.
Need to get back to my passion.
Roses and painting roses.

Hearts...well I have to say they place
2nd next to my roses.
I thought I'd show you some past Canvas's that
I have painted my Roses into a Heart Wreath on.
The one above is my absolute FAV.
These are some of my favorite things to
paint. Hmmm...think I must do one
for this year...note to self.
This one above is actually being offered up
in my Bonanzle store...for those who might be interested.

Alas I ramble....I did also create some
unique Heart Pockets.  Oh, a couple of
years ago I came up with a fun idea  for
a swap.

Above its all done up...
below was just before I embellished it.
See the lacy heart below? with the painted rose?
That went to my dear Friend Connie of
Living Beautifully. With all the goodies pictured.

But then I forgot about them until this year...
I got inspired again because of the
AMOUR Valentines Swap I joined.
So yesterday those juices
started to flow...Oh and look what I did.
I was so tickled with how this turned out.
Can you guess what my pocket is?
Yep, Its actually a lace paper doily!
It's not quite finished.  Just had to show you
what I have gotten my creative
juices doing..SQUEAL!!!  I plan to do something to
put into this and then hopefully sell
them in my etsy shop.

Oh thanks so much for indulging my HEART
obsession.  I really DO love them!

Have a great day everyone!

WOW!! You've never shown us that painting before I don't think, honey. I don't remember it. Love the little birds though.


Love the little bluebirds that you painted on the first heart! Your doilie heart is awesome!!! Glad you have crafting and painting. I think God gives us these talents to keep us UP when we are Down and to share them with others.
