The latest projects

The coffee table thing is on it's fourth life. Once it was Rich's mom's curio cabinet, then Rich turned it into a "bar" (it still has mirrors on the inside), then a toy box for the girls and now a coffee table in our room.
I saw a commercial for a furniture store and there was a painting with colorful egg shapes like these -- I liked the look, so I made it my own.
I liked it so much, I painted it on a vase thingy too (it doesn't hold water, so what do you call it? Dry flower vase? stick holder?) .
I really need to get working on a web site or an etsy page because it would be nice to start selling some of this stuff.
The last thing is "medicine" that Lizzie made for a stuffed animal that she had given to her dad. Seems he's not taking very good care of it. That medicine sat on my counter for two days because, "only the owner can give it to his pet." Lucky the thing didn't die.

I really like the vase thingy the most. The shapes are cool ooking but I like the background it almost looks like weathered wood with white running through it...hard to explain.

kay, that's what my sis and her husband used to do too. Now my sis is a photographer, but she did mention she would do my site -- hope she remembers!

I don't think I could actually afford
to have someone do it.

cecily -- I'm going to quote you on the "cool" thing. I get a lot of "dork", but not a lot of the other, no matter how many time I tell people ...
