Watercolor quotes and bookmarks

This is my favorite display and here is why. My family helped me put this together last spring. The black base was a coat rack made by my oldest son for a 4-H project many years ago. The shelves were found on a shopping trip to the local craft store with my neice and got a second life after years of use displaying stamps. Β My husband cut out the sign, did some painting, and put it all together to make it a free standing unit to display my art. Then my Husband and my son delivered it to where it sits now at Fox + Clover Marketshops were my daughter helps me keep it stocked with new and fun cards.

What a beautiful night for the lighting ceremony in Old Town Fort Collins. My Christmas cards are now in stock at Walnut Creek with new designs coming in weekly until Christmas.

Exciting news!

I am so thrilled to announce I am opening a working studio inside Fox & Clover Marketshops! It’s time to make dreams come true and I’m on my way to making that happen. Stay tuned for new and exciting things happening at Thru The Paintbrush πŸ–Œ

Happy September πŸƒπŸ‚πŸ

Summer is over already and fall is just around the corner from us πŸƒπŸ‚πŸ . What a busy month it has been with so many new things happening around me. My youngest son is away at college, my mother has moved to Colorado, my middle son has moved back home for awhile and my baby girl is a junior in high school and learning to drive. My head is kinda spinning haha. It’s time to relax and take a breath. Happy fall ya all!

Exploring Ames as a family β€πŸ’›

Still not painting but I’m staying very busy. We are doing the college drop off thing this week. πŸ˜₯ He’s the one on my right and yes you guessed it I’m the one with the mom shirt on. Β This is so very hard they grow up so fast πŸ’” I may be sad but I am also beaming with pride 😊

August is here

August is here already! Wow the summer is flying by! So much I planned to do but didnt. My son leaves our home in Colorado and starts college across the country in 2 short weeks and my mothers health problems have me here in Illinois. I wish I could be in two places at once. πŸ’” life can change so quickly. Enjoy the moments you have with the ones you love and remember “If life gives you lemons make sweet tea” β€πŸ‹πŸ₯€#thruthepaintbrush #sweettea #watercolorcalendars
