Turtle Tot Collection

Since you can't see them up close from the Fair photos, here's the Turtle Tot Collection so far!
Next up, Christmas Turtles!

Elena's Easel Goes to the Fair!

Check it out! My first Holiday Craft Fair Extravaganza!!!

Katie, me, my mom and Carissa - Mom had a profitable day at her Sonata Soap booth!

Katie and me - goofin' with the turtles!

So we had a wonderful time at our first fair. It was fun to talk to people, see how they reacted to my artwork. Many people were interested in the hand drawn portrait raffle. Thank you everyone! Look me up and I can still do a portrait for you! But the grand prize winner of the raffle is:


Congratulations Lisa, hope to get working on your portrait soon. Should make a wonderful Christmas present for someone special!

If you interested, I'll be in another holiday craft fair coming up on December 6th. If you're in the area come by Fitch High School to see many more amazing artisans and homemade gifts!

Craft Fair Fun!

Well, the November 8th Holiday Craft Fair was definitely a success. So many people turned out to see about 125 Crafters featuring holiday items, jewelry, ceramics, wreaths, quilts, pet items, scrapbooking, fudge, candles, woodcarvings, and so much more! Even more exciting for the kids was the Children's Winter Wonderland with photos and storytime with Santa and Mrs. Claus!

If you were there in those crowded hallways enjoying all the local artisans, it was great to see you! Thanks for coming out. Stay tuned for pictures from the show and the grand prize winner of my portrait raffle!!!

The therapeutic love of animals

If you know me at all, you know that I am ridiculously drawn to animals and kids. I will make a complete fool of myself to make a child smile and I love to be around animals because they always snap me out of seriousness.

Kita is our adopted pet, we inherited a lot of trouble when we got her....let's just say she has some special needs. BUT she is absolutely the most lovable, loyal, amusing dog you'll ever meet...the only dog I've ever had. She makes me laugh and I love her.

Thought you'd like to see some of her crazy antics. This is how hyper she gets when Joel plays with her!

Still workin'!

Got a new shipment of art supplies...watch how the "kids" help me unpack them....
