Paint Party Friday

My Inspirational Quote Deck is finished and in the mail. This was such a fun challenge and I can see myself making many more of these decks.

It's been a creative week here. Along with finishing off the deck I got 3 hats done bringing my total for the year to 24. We're moving right along only 76 more to go :) 
I also dyed eggs this week ♥

No kiddies here for Easter but read this great tutorial on dyeing eggs with onion skins and just had to try it! They came out this luscious red color and were so simple to do. Plus Hubs and I got to eat fantastic eggs salad sandwiches ♥ 
Now I'm off to get a couple of more aprons done for more yarn and I have a ton of stuff to get done here at the house before Tuesday when the appraiser comes :( 
Don't forget to check out all of the amazing work at

Paint Party Friday

Hello Old Friends
I know I have been missing in action for some while now....I do drop in and check up on folks...just have a lot on my plate right now and have been reducing my  cyber time.
 I have been keeping busy and still searching for the missing Muse. 
To keep myself creatively active I have started painting aprons for co-workers. I paint on their work aprons and they donate yarn to my Hats for Charity goal for 2013. I made the first one on a whim for a friend and she picked up the baton and started an all out campaign for yarn. Here's her apron...

...and this is just a sampling of the yarn that has been donated since ..

My goal for 2013 is 100 hats :)  I have already finished 18  and with the help of my co-workers and friends I think we are going to reach that goal and have some pretty cool warm home made hats to give away. 
I've also been working on my my Inspirational Quote Card Deck and will get that out in the mail in a few days.

Now if I could only wake up Mother Nature so she can turn on the Spring weather here ! So anxious to get out in the warm sun and play in the dirt  ♥♥♥♥♥
