Sunshine In My Soul

I have been addicted to making Etsy treasuries. This is my latest. I wanted to put together a treasury full of sunshiny brightness and happiness to combat those gloomy days of winter where grey skies are so prevalent where I live.

Butter Tart Slice

My son's class had a "Christmas Tea" where they had a nativity performance. The performance was so enjoyable. My son got to play one of the wisemen. His teacher asked him if he wanted to play Joseph, but he said, "No, I want to be a wiseman". He told me later that he wanted to be a wiseman because he wanted to wear a crown. LOL! :)

I made Butter Tart Slices to bring to the Christmas Tea. I love this recipe from The Best of Bridge cookbook. So good, yet so simple to make. I made a 9x13 inch pan and came home with an empty dish! :)

Stitch Art - Hand Stitched With Love

Introducing my new line of Stitch Art!

Stitch Art would look absolutely lovely perched on a bookshelf or sitting on top of a desk or table. It would also look beautiful hanging with other works of art on the wall.

Stitch Art can take hours to create because each design is hand pierced onto cold pressed watercolor paper and then each stitch is meticulously created by hand with love.

I love the effects of stitching on paper. I cannot wait to design some more!
