I opened my Etsy shop!

You haven’t heard from me for awhile because I was busy setting up my Etsy shop.  I recently came across the phrase  “done is better than perfect”.  Well that’s how I feel.  The shop doesn’t have everything I want (like international shipping that I have yet to investigate) but at least it is DONE!  Not everything is in the shop yet.  I will continue to add items every day–so keep checking.  The name of my shop is Blue Pumpkin Studio  (don’t ask–I just like the name).  I would appreciate it if you would at least check it out and “like” my shop.  Here is a new painting I haven’t shown before.  It’s called “Home with Kitty” and is available in my shop.

Home for the Holidays

I came home from Las Vegas and was greeted by 30 degree weather and snow on the ground !  I wasn’t expecting that.  if it was December, I might have welcomed it.  I better get used to it.  Time to break out the gloves and scarves.  This little painting illustrates how nice it is to be home–no matter the weather.

Lil’ Lamb

I’ve been having fun painting a few pictures these last few days.  I’m away from home–away from my quilting machine– so this is my creative outlet while I’m visiting my Mom.  I can paint and visit with her at the same time, so it’s been great.  There’s no particular inspiration for this piece.  I just like houses and little critters, I guess.

Manner of Happiness

This is a re-do of a painting I did a few months ago.  The former was on paper and too large for my scanner so I could never make a good copy.  I shrunk it down a little, painted it on aqua board ( 5″x7″) and I like it just the same.  Today  I’ve gotten in some good quilting and painting  and am now cozy by my fire.  Bliss.   Hope you have been able to live happy today!

Quilter’s Home

Can you tell a quilter lives here?  If you are a quilter, can people tell as soon as they walk through your door?  How about before they even come in?  I must admit I proclaim my addiction right on my front porch where there is always a seasonal quilt tossed over a chair.  If that wasn’t clue enough, guests are bombarded with quilting first thing in my front foyer.  What’s your quilting house like?
