If you have read any of this blog at all, or know me personally, then you know I have an interest and fascination for trees that borders on obsession. 
So, when out to stock up on art supplies, I ran across this metal tree wall art/decor  ....how could I not bring it home with me? The only thing that makes this story and/or find any better is that it was on clearance! Score. 
<------this painting in the middle right side is by Cassandra, my youngest   daughter. I love having my children's artwork around the house. 
<------and who doesn't love to be surrounded by books?

Personalized Craft/Art:

Personalized canvas of 12 x 24, painted in acrylics that I just turned over to a client, who claims she is leopard print crazy. She seemed very pleased with the finished piece and it was a fun little project. 
(keep posted I am working on some ideas for spring personalized craft/art ideas....

Doodle Art:

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
