Grow Strong, A Special Post

Hi Everyone ;o) Hope you're all well ;o)
Grab yourself a drink ;o) This could be a long post, but I promise, it is worth it ;o)

A few weeks ago, I was looking at Lone's Blog ;o) Well, actually drooling! LOL! Lone is very talented at everything she makes! She also puts great quotes on her blog!
At this particular time, Lone had made some gorgeous little birds ;o)
And, then she had a picture of this little one on it's own.
He called out to me! On the other side, he says Strong. "Grow Strong". My heart was smiling! I really wanted him! I felt it was a sign. You know me and my signs ;o) Sometimes, you need a message like that beside you. Especially when life throws you curve balls!  You have to continue to Grow Strong! Keeping your spirit high!

So, I opened my big mouth and asked Lone, if I could have him ;o) I offered to pay for him or make her something. Lone, doesn't have a store!  Lone agreed to give me this little one, only, if I didn't give her anything back. She new this little bird would be cherished, and that meant the world to her! This was really hard on my part! I find it hard to receive a gift and not give a gift back. I realized I might not have gave Lone something as in money, or art, but I did give her back, the gift of friendship ;o)

My Little One arrived in the cutest bag, with a beautiful card, that her friend made. She's an artist ;o)



Thanks so much Lone! I love everything!
So, then I thought! I would love to do a painting based on this little one!
I started with a cream and white background.
Added grey lines, to match the ribbon.
Added some flowers.
And, then I started to paint, until, I was finished ;o)
The finished piece ;o)
She is done on a 4" x 12" canvas ;o) I hope you like her, because I am giving her away ;o) Lone blessed me with a beautiful gift. So, in my own way, I am paying it forward, in honour of Lone ;o) 

So, if you would like to win it, please make sure you put in your comment, "you want her!" If you don't say that, I won't put your name in the draw. The giveaway ends February 28th and I will announce the winner March 1st ;o)
Thanks again Lone, for your friendship, and your kind soul. You inspired this painting ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)

Vampire's Day Soiree

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone ;o)
On this loving day, we are celebrating it with Holly, and her Vampire's Day Soiree Blog Party ;o)

The first thing I thought, was to paint a loving vampire crow couple ;o) I began with this background. (click on the pics to make them bigger)
The more I looked at it, I didn't think it was right. I wanted something more bright, to celebrate their love for each other ;o)
I saw their bodies entangling, as they feasted on each other's blood.
Their souls are one.
The passion grows and so does their thirst.
A night of pure love ;o)
I hope everyone likes my Vampire's Day Soiree painting ;o) It's done on a 5" x 7" piece of wood ;o) Guess what? Because it is Valentine's Day, this painting is a giveaway ;o) If you don't want it, I won't be upset, but if you do, please tell me in your comment, you want it ;o) The last day to enter is Monday February 17th and I will announce the winner on Tuesday February 18th ;o)
Please visit Holly and check out all the other "Vampire's Day Soiree" posts ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)

Me Here

Hi Everyone ;o)
It's been awhile since my last post. Truth be told, I haven't been feeling well, since the last snow storm. Soar throat, running nose. You know, all the good stuff ;o) LOL! But, I have to admit, I could be worse! I'm still not 100%, but I am getting better ;o)
I have been painting ;o) Here are some sneak peaks for you ;o)
Johnny had to be in the picture! LOL! ;o)
The next one is kind of blurry, but that's ok, because it's the painting in progress for the Wizard of Oz blog party ;o) You can see, the yellow brick road is on there now ;o) Next to that, you see my happy table ;o)
The last picture is a special order. I think it turned out very cute ;o)
Remember this?
It's now this ;o)
I will be around to your blogs soon ;o) I know I am behind!
Big Hugs ;o)

Snow and Mom's Jade Plant

This weekend we got more of this............
And this................
And, guess what? There is lots more coming on Wednesday. By the time summer comes, I am going to be so fit ;o) LOL!
Last year, Magaly showed her jade plant on her blog. I commented that you should see my mom's.
Mom has had her jade plant now for 25 plus years. It was given to her by a Japanese lady. It was a baby, no bigger than your longest finger. Now she has grown to about 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide.
Mom is the gardener inside! She talks to her plants all the time. When it comes time to transplanting her plants, she takes out her trusted knife and starts sawing! LOL!
Yep, that's what she does! Nothing special. She just starts cutting them apart and then she throws away, or gives some of the plant away, and then repots the main plant again. You have to do this, because the plant will get root bound. Either make the plant smaller, or get a bigger pot, so the roots have room to breath.
But now, this plant has got too big and too heavy. Mom or I can't chop her in half anymore!
This is some pictures of her branches.
We have been trying to give her away, but she is just too big. So once she breaks the pot, she will be gone. I am sure mom will take a baby and start her over. I wish I could plant her outside!

I have been painting, but I can't really show you anything. because it's for the blog parties. I will leave you with one sneak peak of my crow vampire painting ;o) It's a lot different from when I first started ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)
