Thank you so much for all of the truly wonderful comments on my SITS day. I felt very loved. The highest compliment that I can be paid is to hear that I inspired many of you to try a project. That means so much to me, as that is my hope, to inspire others to see something in a different way, to see new life in something old. I am also excited that so many of you signed up to follow my blog.
To answer a few questions. Yes, I do sell my things, at the Farmer's Market in the summer and at a local antique place. I have a few other irons in the fire as well and am thinking of doing an etsy shop. Here is a picture of my daughter, selling some of her paintings this past week with me.
I do build things out of junk as well as painting on them. I built the potting table I showed, and lots of other things that you can find in past posts. I actually really love the building part. I paint my pieces free-hand and I am self-taught. Trial and error is a big part of it.
Here are a few chalkboards I did for last week's market. The one is an oceany blue color, hard to tell with the flash. It was so cold at the market, 45 degrees, but I did well, as did my daughter Ü.
PS--Someone wanted to link to my blog, that is great. I can't get your blog information from your post and it saidd you didn't share your blogger information.
