I Bee 1!!

A friend asked if I could make an outfit for her little girl for her 1st birthday. I told her I would try. They have always called her "Queen Bee" as she is the youngest of 4 and the only girl!

I haven't used my embroidery machine enough to say so but decided to try. Here are the results. I learned a lot doing this project hopefully the next one will be better. And there will be a next time!

More Cakes!!

Well here are the cakes I made for Maddy. Her 8th birthday!

I can not get this photo to stay upright... Any ideas?

I found several photos of cakes that I forgot to post... So be patient as I try to catch up... Before I do the next ones in November.

This cake was a lot of fun to make. It was the first time I tried to color the batter. It worked!

Am I an artist yet?

I just realized I haven't painted since April. I did paint 2 pictures back then but haven't picked up a paint brush since. Here are the ones I did.

This one I did for my niece.

I know I need to crop these but it is the end of a long day. I will fix them later.

I know I am my worst critic (I have been told that is the norm) But I do have so much to learn. But I am having so much fun trying to paint. 

I am starting an art class later this month and it is completely different than this style of painting. First off I will learn to draw using the right side of my brain.

The instructor is Kathy Chester. Her web site is and it shows a lot of her work. 

I can't wait to get started. I will be sharing what I learn this semester.

Even my Knomes think it is too early!

I was wandering in my yard yesterday and saw my first Daffodil blossom. To me, they have always meant spring is here and the cold is almost over. NOT this year!! I can not believe how warm it has been. Leaves me a little concerned about what to expect next... 

May as well take a nap, God is in control..........

I painted this on an 8 x 10 black canvas. I don't think it is too shabby for my first one, on sooo many levels. I still need to work on Ann's eyes. But..............
