Wha't on My Work Desk?

Welcome to my little corner of the Web!! It's What' s on Your Work Desk's what I've been up to this past week....

Backgrounds before paint

My friend ordered three of my Brave Girls a few weeks ago. I am soooo excited to create these!!! I know the girls personally and each one of them is such a will be so fun to create these with their sweet spirits in mind.

Backgrounds after paint

Here are the backgrounds after adding paint. I just love how they are turning out!! Next comes rub-ons, words and other background goodies.

Lately I have been using lots of these in my collages.

Aren't they beautiful? You get between 60 and 80 of these sweeties per pack. Butterflies, birds, blooms, crowns and words. Heaven!

My first Craft Show is coming up in October. There is sooooo much left to do!! EEEKKK!!

This is a recent background for my Brave Art. One of my favorites.

Just a tiny peek at my built-in bulletin board on my desk. My darling Emmie girl left me that note!:) The blue ribbon is from the County Fair in July. I placed first with 2 of my Brave Girls.

Here is a piece I finished a few days ago. That turquoise is my very favorite color ever!!!

Some close-ups...
