Thought I would put the picture of my painting on to show the stage I am in now. My friend Birgit and I have been to the painting class twice and this is how far we both got. Not quite finished. Its amazing how it comes to life so quickly. Lots and lots of detail goes into it but moves along quickly. Next week a new project is starting and it is a beautiful folk art piece. Looks complicated but with our instructor right beside us I`m sure we`ll get through it. Fun!
I am busy getting ready for opening up my shop in May. Lots of shopping,primping and details to take care of so as to be ready. Been making dolls but not nearly fast enough. They take so long to put together into something special. I am biting off more then I can chew as the saying goes for with a friend of mine I have started taking painting classes. I never knew what details that go into creating a simple picture. It is turning out to be not only a learning tool but FUN! The people we gather with on Monday mornings are very nice and fun to be with. Will post my first painted picture when finished. Its amazing what you accomplish in just two classes. Then in May I have jury duty. UGH!! Put it off for three different times but I guess now I will have to pay my dues. Also have a wedding celebration of my grandson and wife who were married last year in N.C. and now want to come home to Maine and have a celebration with all family there. Wanted to help in some way so am making the ring bearers pillow and was asked if I would decorate the arbor. It`s an outdoor celebration in a beautiful field setting. It should be easy to come up with ideas to decorate. I have a few in mind. My shop LIzziesRaggs Primitives will open May 6 and 7 with a Spring Open House. After that I will be open T-F-Sat. 10-4. Call ahead other days and if home will open shop. Think Spring!!
Its hard to believe that it is already the middle of February. Time has a way of disappearing like a blink of the eye! I guess the older you get the faster it goes. Since we are still in winter lets have some more snow! Our snow around Maine is going very fast. Since we do snowmobile some and have a camp further north in Maine where usually snowmobiling is great we are all praying for those white flakes. Vacation week is the time we go with our grandkids and their parents. We have such a great time. In the meantime I am making new things for my website lizziesraggs and thinking Spring creations. Hard to get in that mood but I`m trying. Hope to hear from you and share what your all doing to get through this season.
