Val, I just want to post the link to your last thread for easy access.

http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=7846&pst=1424991

Your work is just beautiful! You must get great joy out of doing the painting on the candles, door-art as well as wall art and so many other areas of art! I remember when I used to oil paint and the time just flew by.

I am really interested in the door knob hangings, and the gorgeous pink roses above. What are they painted on? One of your paintings from the last thread was of great interest to me and I see it got sold. That's what I get for procrastinating!

Keep on posting, please. I am so intrigued! ff

I see a lovely gentle spirit in these paintings.

Thanks Cheryl for the link - forget about doing that a lot - making some notebooks (with a printer) from the acrylic above.   The bookmarks are painted on acrylic paper or paper for acrylics.   And the door placards are on thin wood; not so thing will break though. If you tell me which painting sold that you like I might be able to paint another similar but never make promises since my watercolors always have a mind of their own....  I do love to paint- more than making the jewelry - thanks for the compliments - can never seem to get enough!

Val, I am copying the link to your blog from the other thread so that we can remember where it is. I hope you don't mind, and if you don't want it here for some reason, let me know and I will delete it.

VERY VERY NICE!! Beautiful website and so much to look at! You are quite the artist in so many ways. I love the way you arrange and portray your items.

I will try to find that picture I especially like and take a screenshot.

Oh wow, Val, it's been a while since I've been here. The bookmarks and candles and pictures are just BEAUTIFUL! They are so graceful and colourful. You must get a lot of pleasure when you are creating these. Hopefully I will be able to do an order soon.

These show how beautiful your spirit/soul is!

Cheryl - you are so sweet - thanks - I do enjoy painting them - candles are too heavy to mail so doubt will do many of those again -

Like the new bookmarks Val.

What a nice time I've just enjoyed looking through the website, Val. I feel like I just came out of a movie... you know that feeling?

The White Morning Dove poem -- it was like someone reading my mind. That's exactly what I've been feeling with all the things going on in the world. I do keep up with the CNN every day to see if something GOOD happened, but alas, it's the same. Maybe your hubby and I are watching the same thing.

Beautiful poetry, my friend and sister. I will be going back to read more because it really touches 'where I live'.

I saw a few bracelets that I really could see myself wearing. And how big is that lovely picture with the three trees? And I want at least six of those Daisy Bookmarks because I have receipts and other ugly things marking my pages in all the books I have going.

I did notice that many things are marked "...in the U.S. only" -- oh no!

Beautiful work, Val. I see another beautiful side to you in there.

2 months ago

Thanks Cheryl - NOTHING should be marked USA only - check under the shipping tab and should tell you how much costs to ship - let me know if you have any trouble - I ship to Great Britain often.  Thank you about the poem - it was heartfelt and really hit home when I wrote it - want to start writing more since most of those are from awhile back - OK - will make more daisy bookmarks.  As for the picture, it should state the measurements in the listing.  If you are unsure - PM me - you are so sweet - don't make manybracelets - some are probably anklets though can be worn either way.  I can never decide what to make so have many things there - just made some pet charms also.  Hubby listens to independent news all day - never CNN.

Thank you Brenda and Mary also -

Mary - thank you - I am hanging in there thanks - trying to take care of my back as much as possible - but does get difficult with all I do - but really can't complain - I am still here!  Thanks for asking.

1 month ago

I haven't been here for awhile - sorry Val! Yes, I will go back in and have a look for the pink and blue painting with the three trees. It has special meaning to me. I can't do much this month - unexpected expenses, but I hope to do something next month. Love those bookmarkers too. Your paintings have such a gentle feel to them and that really pulls me to them. I love the Hope, Relax, Breathe, and Inspire... very positive thinking! If one were to read that in front of them every day it would have to plant something good within!

That's the one, Val! It speaks to me! I had such a lovely time looking through all the beautiful things you've done on the etsy link.

I also would like the "Shabby Cottage Chic Pink Daisy Doorknob" - which goes quite well with the painting.

I have only ever ordered one thing online and that was quite a long time ago. So how do I go about doing this? I could set up a PayPal account... at least my son could help me do that.

I'll check back here and hope you get a chance to walk me through this.

I'm so excited!

Hey Val, I hope you are okay. Thinking of you and your hubby. Let me know, when you get a chance, how to go about this and I'll do it right away.

2 weeks ago

Just posted here Cheryl and not here - anyway - thank you - you can set up a PayPal account or pay by credit card - up to you - I have put Reserved for Cheryl on both - if you have any more questions let me know - thanks for your patience. PS if the other post shows up - the door knob hanger is in the door & wall accessory or somethinig like that section not home decor.
