If you feel like you haven't accomplished much in the last year...
just do a recap of your blog posts each month, and you might feel like you actually did lots of things!
Lets see, i just showed you my new coffee table for December
i'm trading that for a painting
more about that later....
so lets see what else happened in December....
Oh yeah, i painted pink and white stripes on my bedroom dresser!
that was fun!
Found these cute and comfortable little Kooboo chairs and put them in my little art room, and finally got rid of the random assortment of chairs i had been meaning to recover for 3 years!
Plus Marian's "Miss Mustard Seed'" incredible new book was released and two of my paintings were in it!!
"Eulalie" the cow
and a little meadow scene that i painted !
The book is amazing, and i am sooooooo proud to have my work in there...
my painting, the little meadow is in the upper left corner, high up over the desk...
see it? it is one of my favorite paintings...
Finished up this painting of a cluster of roses !
Traded my friend for this amazing architectural piece and drug it home...
surprise mr. fracturedfairytale !
you didn't know something with broken glass in it was so wonderful, did you!
Finished several paintings and loaded up my kitchen cupboard with every white dish i could find!
painted a lady with pink hair, (that was fun)
pulled up the yucky carpet in my bathroom and painted the plywood floors
and took a plain old basket and made it a "French Market" basket
Did a painting of a sweet sleepy Sheep... twice!
on big and one small
and picked an amazing bouquet out of my yard...
I painted my bright green bathroom, Pink!
and picked more yummy bouquets from the yard...
I was featured in the premier of Romantic Prairie Magazine!!!

and "Romantic Prairie" was sooo pretty too...
I also made a pretty little birthday cake covered in pansies for my daughter!
Finished more paintings
and had a giveaway of a painting of some white hydrangeas...
Painted this big rose painting...
getting ready for Spring, YAY!
Finished more paintings and made a lacy jewelry holder...
In the meantime lots of other things happened of course, kid stuff, work stuff, i picked lots more bouquets, gardened, moved furniture around, discovered and played on Pinterest, obsessed about random other things...decided to get a tattoo and then didn't, and let's see, the latest was to die the tips of my hair pink...
I mean, i'm 59 years old... WHY NOT!!?? If i'm gonna be old and kooky, might as well be old and kooky with pink hair!
and I blathered on with you guys about this and that...
And you were all so awesome and supportive and funny
You guys rock!
so, whaddya say, let's blow out the candle on 2012 and say come on in 2013, we're ready!
I hope you all have a happy New Year all year long!
