All Things Art & Home

What can I say, Summer is just something to get thru….I’m not a fan.

But, thankful everyday that this ‘inside girl‘ has enough projects to entertain herself… the comfort of air conditioning.

My neighbors even send me off in May with a ‘see ya in September’ wave.


Studio Happenings

The Studio has been receiving some much needed updating, organizing and cleaning. This hard working space holds our home office, a place for all kinds of hobbies, our home storage, my business storage, my business supplies, display shelving, sample project space and holds weekly classes too ~ that’s a lot to ask of approximately 500 square feet…..and of course it needs to look pretty too.

We have been working the space one wall at a time…..two done, two to go and all the nooks and crannies that come with a Cape Cod. Below are some progress pics….We’re getting there.


New Product

One thing I know is…..I will never be short on ideas.

The Candles have been an exciting adventure and already have repeat customers ~ warms my heart for sure.

And there is something extra fun in the works for my painting friends…..’Candle Trays’ to coordinate with our 8oz Candles. Here is a peek at two examples that will be coming shortly.

The ‘Produce Prudence‘ Candle Tray is available thru Sheila Landry (here). The design will be taught this coming October in Acrylics to complete your tray or large ornament thru Artful Webinars Zoom Class (here) Registration will open 8/15.

Produce Prudence fits our 8oz ‘Cottage Kitchen‘ Candle just perfectly!

Watch for a Blog Post coming soon for ‘Produce Prudence‘ and all about Candle Trays too.

Santa Claus will be available this coming Christmas Season ~ along with a few friends….and Christmas Candles too.



Listening first to an interview with Ruth, then I started searching, reading, and enjoying.

All things Ruth Chou Simons.

I first heard the interview thru The Creative Exponent Podcast. Ruth was so inspiring as a Creative and thru her Faith.

I then searched for her books, her website and her podcasts ~ so enjoyable! You can find her book (here). And her website (here).

She is refreshing.



If you have been following along over the past couple of weeks….you might have thought that I have misplaced my paint brush and subbed a spatula, lol!

We’ve been Sharing ‘Those Brownies‘, Meatball Soup and so much more. Check out our ‘Food Tab’ under ‘Blog Tab’ for even more!

And coming next month we will have even more yummy goodness with the battle of the Rotini and Elbow Macaroni Salads, and Chicken Spaghetti too!


Home Projects

Everything is kinda-sorta at a stand still on the homefront…..waiting on the goods to arrive.

Waiting on a new window installation, waiting on mulch to finish the gardens, waiting on trees to add a little privacy, waiting on fencing to replace a wooden fence, and waiting on sand to finish the ‘fire pit’ area.


And still searching for baby duckling statues ~ for the storybook cottage look we are hoping to create. All in good time Amy.


Creative Happenings

It’s hard to choose what to share about in ‘Creative Happenings‘ each month because there is so much!

This new piece ‘Country Store Christmas‘ in Paint & Pencil is on my worktable….it is the next piece in the Vintage Scale Series ~ just a few little details to work out and it will be complete.

Available soon thru Artful Webinars Zoom Classes ~ for November 5th, 2022, mark your calendars!
