Woohoo it's Friday!

Happy Friday! I'm sorry to have been missing in action. We're all finally over the flu bug, stomach virus and sinus infections that invaded our household. Warm weather is finally here, the birds are chirping and new life is beginning to spring forth everywhere. It's a time of the year that offers hope and new life and it simply excites my soul.

Reed and I went up last week and spent the day with my Mom. We had lunch together at our favorite pizza place and then I HAD to stop in at Higher Ground in Union City for my favorite Iced Caramel macchiato. YUM! She (mom) has this group of friends that get together and celebrate each other's birthdays in the most creative ways. I helped her put together this giant poster sized card of her and her friends at the "ball." It was so much fun to just relax and be creative with her. She is super talented and can sew, draw, sing and she even writes poetry. I grew up in a home that was always full of music, laughter and lots of creativity. Mom also had a home based business for years and sold to antique stores, boutiques and even to Loretta Lynns Dude Ranch...haha. I remember traveling around the countryside with her and her best friend and business partner Joann Kelly while helping them make deliveries. It was always an adventure and so much fun.

The finished product. This was a blast to create. She photoshoped the faces onto the ball gowns and I did the layout for this ginormous birthday poster. I have been told that the recipient absolutely loved it. Happy Birthday Tina!

I found this funky vintage chair at the thrift store about a month ago and had to share. Iabsolutely love this chair. I have a vintage chair obsession! Of course, the "emperor" of the house decided to take his rightful place upon my new chair..ha. The hand in the photo is that of my son who is dangling a mouse over Babycat's which he is not amused.

I'm also doing painted class plates for each grade at my son's school and they will be auctioned off at the school auction on April 11. This is a great fundraiser for schools and churches. We bring Picasso to Go right to your school, home or church and we even clean up the mess before we leave. Here is a sneak peek of a couple of the plates for Christ Classical Academy's auction.
The kids had so much fun doing this in Art on Wednesday! CCA parents you are going to love these!

I also have these personalized wedding plates for all of those upcoming wedding showers you may have to attend as we are heading into wedding season. I paint these in custom colors and personalize them with the name of the bride and groom and their wedding date. I also have available the larger platters that can be displayed and signed by all of your wedding guests. With the larger platters, I will include a ceramic marker and instructions.

To place your order you can simply email me at These have been quite a hit around here.

I apologize for my longwindedness today! It's just been so long since I last posted. I hope you guys enjoy your weekend and BE BLESSED!
