I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas...We sure did...our grandkids are so much fun to watch open their presents...it was a little noisey, tho..lol...Now that the Christmas season is over, it's back to the 'real' world....although, the weather here in Indiana has been unseasonably warm, it's still winter and I'm counting the days until spring...I have recently joined a new group on Etsy and it has such talented, creative women that I am going to have such fun, sharing, chatting, and enjoying looking at their items...I have not listed any items in my new store, as of yet, but will after the new year...Until then, I will keep painting and creating....Have a wonderful week....

I have another gumball machine, 15" that is on a black metal stand, just waiting it's turn to be painted...but, it will have to wait until after the holidays...I have my Christmas shopping done, almost, and will spend an afternoon on my day off, wrapping everything...Wrapping gifts is probably one of my least favorite things to do, but maybe this year, I will enjoy the moment, take my time and drink some hot chocolate....I have learned a lot about myself this past year...I have learned about living in the moment and enjoying life and to be grateful for all that I have...My husband still has not found a job, but maybe in the coming year he will find something that 'is meant to be'...until then, I am happy to have him home with me and enjoying life...And I think that I have finally gotten him use to my 'pink fetus'....when I brought home my PINK Christmas tree...lol...He said that it was cute...Okay, that's a start...lol...Blessings to you all and I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.....

I've also been working on some special orders for customers...I love all the new friends that I have been making lately thru ebay and my website..They are all so special to me..I love special orders...
I guess that's about all for now..still staying possitive and no negativity in my life..lol..I made a resolution this year to stop worrying so much, be more possitive, get rid of all negativity and so on..The day after I made these resolutions, my husband lost his job, lol..then this week, my husband's car 'died' for good..and our water's pressure tank, we have a well, went bad..BUT, it's all good and I'm staying possitive..only good things and thoughts..lol..

I am a self taught painter of over 10 yrs. and started out by watching HGTV programs with decorative artists...videos, seminars, ect...My husband tells the story of how he came home from work one day and I was painting on the walls..every day he would come home and a new mural would be on the walls..He says that I just picked up a paint brush one day and just never stopped..lol....When I felt comfortable enough with my painting skills, I started doing murals, faux painting, faux kniches, bricks, ect in clients homes...Imagine my surprize at getting paid to do something that I truly have a passion for...Below is a brick kniche with a vase of flowers done in a clients home...
I sold my painted pieces in my mother's little store in town, up until a few months ago...She sold her business and now is enjoying retirement..I think..lol..she definetly needs a hobby...
I have been selling my handpainted items on ebay for over 2 yrs now and have enjoyed every minute...making new friends and such wonderful repeat customers...Most of my items are 'found' and 'vintage' and just need a shabby chic rosey makeover...You can view my pieces on my picturetrail albums...http://www.picturetrail.com/teresa_h I also hope to be selling my handpainted, altered art items on Etsy in the very near future...For now, here are a few of my 'recent' handpainted items that have been sold on ebay...
