Hi,, its Show and Tell time :)

Hi, I hope everyone had a great spring weekend? Its been a pretty busy week around here. I did get a few things done and that is always good. I just got finished watching a show on CREATE. This is the most awesome channel I have on cable. They have lots of cooking, travel, entertainment, quilting and knitting, sewing and my favorite painting shows. I really like a series they have on now with a husband and wife team, Gary and Kathwren Jenkins. They teach oil painting, and it actually makes sense. When I get back from my retreat vacation to Cape Cod in a couple weeks, I am really going to give this a try. I love drawing and painting, but have not had any formal education. Garys instructions are very good.

I worked on some new jewelry. The lavender dragonfly is an order, but I will be putting the pink dragonfly on my website. The next necklace is ornate and victorian looking, but I really think I would like it with a T shirt and jeans. This little doll is for a project called Comfort Dolls. Women all over the country send in small little dolls with an inspirational message of hope and they go out to womens shelters all over the country. We have a batch of dolls from us at Make Mine Pink going to our favorite place, Enchanted Makeovers to go to a very special group of girls. If you get the chance check out their blog. . Next was an idea I had working with my cupcake idea again. So this has been my weekend,, what did you all do? (()) Gail

Hi Gail,

I wish I had the Create channel here too, it sounds like something I would love watching. I would love to watch how people do oil painting. It's something very therapeutic watching them do it. Your new jewlery is beautiful! So is the cupcake banner!

The dragonflies are my favourite of the flying creatures and you deserve to do well with these. Love the banner as well as your other blogged pieces.
