Suncatchers in Upcycled Picture Frames

Something new—suncatchers! And Giuseppe stepped in to model while his mom was having a nap. I think he did pretty well! Remember all those annoying little metal frames we used for our photos, 3-1/2 x 5, 4 x 6, 5 x 7, thin, cheap metal colored gold or silver? I would see boxes of them […]

Bella Being Haunted By Herself

Well, I don’t know how I’d feel if things that looked like me were all over the house. But then, I’m not as cute as Bella! As always, I did not pose her. She must have felt their eyes on her… …or she wanted me to feature things with the Bella! design—accessory bags and dish […]

50% Off on All Original Art

It did, along with COVID-19, and just as quickly all my events into June have been cancelled. I feel pretty safe from COVID-19, and I […]
