Fourth of July fun!

My family has enjoyed celebrating The fourth of July in the town of Wellington for many years. ❤️🤍💙

This year I will be running the little gift shop “Thistle” and my daughter will be selling T-shirts and stickers right outside the door including my patriotic gnomes! We will have front row seats to the parade!

Mural Workshop

I was lucky enough to attend an instructional class on creating murals with Rafael Lopez, the award winning children’s book illustrator. I learned so much from him in a short amount of time and can’t wait to create my first mural! 👩‍🎨He was even nice enough to sign my copy of one of his childrens books that I plan to share with my children’s art class ❤️

Kids watercolor class

Prepping for my watercolor self portrait kids class tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what the kids create 🥰 I am bringing lots of inspiration Including some hand mirrors so the kids can get a good look at themselves for their portraits. 🎨🖌👩‍🎨

Happy November

November is here and I am busy prepping for Christmas!  Join me Friday evening November 5th for First Friday and The tree lighting in oldtown Fort Collins and Friday evening November 26th  for The Wellington Holiday Market. Let the holiday fun begin!

Advent cards and coloring set

I put up my first Advent display of the year today at Bee & Thistle in Brighton Colorado! I created the 25 watercolor picture cards last Christmas and added a giant coloring page this year.


Each kit includes 25 two sided cards, a giant coloring page with all 25 images and a bonus baby Jesus coloring page. The idea of the coloring page is that everyday of advent you color the picture from that day and by Christmas your giant coloring page is complete.
