My Mother's Art!

I always knew that my mother was an artist at heart and that when her five kids took over her life she put her art aside, but little did I know how talented this woman really is until seeing this picture hanging on her wall while visiting her yesterday! Seems it's been well hidden all these years until my sister found it, had it framed and mounted on the wall of their new independent living apartment. All I can say is WOW! and that now I know where my daughter's talent comes from. Anyway, before I head out to find some good sales this morning I thought I'd share a few pics with you. First is her drawing (it's about 24 by 36 inches), then a shot of the four of us together and also a shot of my sale finds at Scrapbook Garden yesterday. Ok, no matter what I do to her picture it insists on importing sideways, so if anyone has a clue as to what I'm doing wrong please let me know. I've saved it rotated, but it still imports sideways...

I have been trying to find the old Fabrico brand stamp pads, so was very pleased to find them on clearance yesterday. They even had two of the refills available. My most exciting "find" was the Stazon refill which our local stores have not carried for a long time. The cardstock in the back on the left is actually embossed and is soooo what I was looking for to go with that new vintage paper. When I take pictures of a gift that came in the mail last week you'll understand why I was looking for vintage paper. I let a friend borrow part of the gift and will wait until it comes back next week to take pictures. I hope everyone had a safe New Years Eve and will have a nice relaxing and productive day today!

Pin It!

  1. I love the drawing!!! I wonder if there are others hidden somewhere or if that's the only one? Both she and grandpa are certainly very creative. It definitely does run in the family!



Thanks for stopping by. Now won't you please leave a comment to let me know you were here? I just love hearing from you!
