Happy Belated New Year!

Happy belated New Year!happy new year sparklerI hope that your new year has been off to a great start and that you are embracing 2019 for all it’s worth 🙂

I wanted to pop in and see how you were doing and let you know what has been happening here…

Unfortunately, my January started off with over a week in bed; it was the sickest I have been in years. Thankfully it seems to have slowly gone away and things are finally getting back to normal.kleenex box with a winter scene

Ottawa Home and Renovation Show 

Last week was the Ottawa Home and Renovation Show for 4 days and I was asked to teach workshops again.  It was such a great time and I met so many wonderful people!Ottawa Home and Renovation Show 2019 January backdrop hand painted trees Ottawa Home and Renovation Show January 2019They built me a wall this time so it was great fun to get to hand paint it and add some character to the area ♥  Now if only I had a hammock to put under those trees for the time between the workshops 😉

What’s Next

With the Home Show over, it’s time to start teaching and blogging again!  Two of my favvvvourite things ♥

There are some new classes coming up (if you are in the Ottawa area): A Love Garland class and a Stencils 101 workshop.  There are also a whole bunch in the works that will be up soon.Love Garland painted with Miss Mustard Seed Milk PaintAs for blog projects I have two different stencil projects coming up that I can’t wait to complete…  One with these gorgeous stencils that Goedele from over at Dala Muses sent…Dala Muses stencilsand one that will showcase this rustic three pane window I found at the dump last summer…old three paned window

HUGE Announcement

And of course, I saved the very best for last 😉 I have a huge announcement coming up that I can’t wait to share with you!  If you live too far away to take a class with me or have wanted to make the signs from my classes at home… this announcement is for you.  It is almost ready to share and I can’t wait to let you in on what it is!

So that is what has been happening here in my little corner of the world.
I hope that you are doing well and keeping busy this winter too.
Stay warm and enjoy this time to tap into your creativity.

I'd love to hear what you think...
