Handmade Art and Pickin' In The Park

What a fabulous day it was this past Sunday in Homewood Park.  Beautiful Art and Great Music, are two of my favorite things.  When you put them together on a pretty Sunday afternoon in October, well, it just does not get much better.




Just a few photos of my tent and some of my artwork.  It was a very successful day.  I sold several paintings of various sizes, and numerous little pumpkin paintings.   And if you noticed the little dog bed and water bowl.  Well that is because my little fun fellow Captain was at there with me.  He loves to go to art shows and greet all the two and four legged friends.  He had so much fun!


I'll be back at the easel tomorrow preparing for holiday shows.

Fall Wreath, The Beginning of my Decorating

Many years ago, I cross stitched a banner for a grapevine wreath.  I added some sunflowers and a bow to complete it.  For about fifteen years that wreath spent its life in the attic.  Well, I decided to give it a new look and use it.  So, here it is on my front door.



I just love making old things new again.

Pelham's Golden Anniversary

I recently participated in the Golden Anniversary Celebration for the city of Pelham.  It was a pleasure to be invited to join other artist in a good show.
Here are some photos of my booth.






It is always fun to meet other artists, make new friends and sale paintings.

My Sheri Craft #135 Three In A Row

Hi everyone!  I am back from my absence with the team and so glad to be here.  I am been extremely busy completing my last year of 37 teaching kindergarten.  Packing up 37 years of my life and moving things was interesting, sometimes difficult, and sometimes exciting.  I am now officially a retired teacher!

I am excited to participate in our challenge this week Called Three In A Row.



  I chose to use items in the last vertical row of the game.  I have embossed paper,  flowers and pearls on my card.


I hope you will join our challenge and post your project on the My Sheri Crafts blog, HERE.  Thanks for stopping by, I hope you come back often.

Art In The Hills Was Great!

The art show this past Saturday was fantastic!  I saw so many people I had not seen in a while and love visiting with them.  There was a great variety of art styles at the show.  I only wish I had more time to visit the other artist.  Here are a couple of photos of my place.  I was in a great location and the weather was perfect!!!





I sold seven paintings!!

Irish You The Best!!!

Hi! and welcome!!! Well March is here, Daylight Savings Time is with us , Spring is right around the corner, and the wearing of the green day will be here is less than a week.  St Patrick's Day is always a fun day with friends and especially fun in my kindergarten classroom.  We all wear green and eat all kinds of green things.  We do a mini unit on Ireland and listen to lots of Irish music.  We play games and I have all kind of things for the prizes.  I also have cards for the children.  Take a look at this cutie.


The little dog with the shamrock is a digital stamp from http://www.papercraftingworld.com.  I colored the little dog to look like a King Charles Spaniel all dressed up for the Wearing of the Green.  The sentiment is also a Paper Crafting World digital stamp.  I added a little yellow and green ink to the edges and layered it to dark green paper.  I used Spellbinder dies to cut and emboss the two images.  I decided to add the cute polka dotted ribbon to the card and then embellish it with sone glittered shamrocks.  Happy Saint Patrick's Day to one and all!!!
