Good Morning Everyone~! In my last post I spoke of some new things that I have been working on, and I just completed these yesterday, so I wanted to share.
This first photo is a gourd that was given to me by a dear friend, and when I first saw it I just knew I had to do something special with it. This is what I came up with.....isn't it cute? I love painting on gourds......some I leave in the natural state, but in others such as this one I do paint the entire gourd. This little guy will be available in my Etsy shop soon. Most of my Halloween art is geared toward making you smile, rather then the scary stuff. So you will see cute cats, smiling ghosts, and adorable creatures, rather then the more ghoulish things.

Here is another gourd that I did up for the Fall/Autumn season. This is my favorite season of all, so I do lots of things geared more to Harvest, Scarecrows, and Gratitude. This gourd was left in its natural state, with the design only being painted. I think this is one of my favorite designs from Deb Richey.

I have had several requests to paint some fall mouse pads, so while I had my palette out with the colors for the gourd, I went ahead and painted the same design on the mouse pad. I have several customers that love to switch out their mouse pads for the seasons, so I hope they enjoy this new design.

And last but not least is another mouse pad I did with a Renee Mullin design. This one is full of detail, and is my all time favorite.

Even thought we are now enjoying great summer weather, it is that time already to be thinking of fall decorating, so I will be working on many more items in the coming days. I hope you have enjoyed these, and I will return soon with more creations. As always all of these items are available in my Etsy shop. Till next time............blessings to all, and thanks so much for visiting my blog. You gals keep me inspired, and I love hearing from all of you!
