Anajolia the mermaid is finally done!

Hello!!  This week I've been working a little bit most nights on he mermaid to get her done....and...drumroll ......I'm finally pleased with the results!  Here she is:
She was created from sheet metal, caulking, acrylic paint and lots of Viva Decor products!!  You will see Viva Inka Golds in her hair and eyes, over the caulking.  I think they covered very well.
The top was created with Inka Gold and Viva Stone Art over a Ranger stencil.  The tail was painted and then I used Viva Croco in blackberry...check it out!!!
 I'm already planning my next mermaid project, having learned so much from this one.  I hope you like her!!

French Country

Don't you just love when things just fall together.  I had bought this 8x8 shadow box and a couple 12x12 boxes and have had no idea what to do with them.  Then I was browsing around on blogs last night and saw this great idea....just can't remember where...sorry!  I think it was butterfly kisses blog...?  Anyway, here it is!  Love it!!!  I think little baby will be making home in my kitchen.

And..the mermaid?  Well she's still hanging out on my screen porch, just waiting patiently for some attention.  My 6 year old named her today, Anajolia.  Hmmm, I like it!
Have a great weekend!

Cherries everywhere!!!

What a weekend, crazy weather with the flooding and winds.  Then, just good old muggy heat!!  We decided to pickup Cheyanne and go cherry picking the other day.  Anyone know some good cherry recipes!  We've been eating them like crazy; natural, then in jam and now cherry muffins.....cherries coming out everywhere !!!

Both Kate and Jessa got haircuts too, and a pretty fancy Do!

Today I may be able to work on a project or two.....really just trying to finish some older projects.
I found some Graphic45 paper over at Tuesday Morning and need to start a couple of projects with those too!!  Maybe a baby book or two...
