Not Just Beads
Yesterday I spent the entire day cleaning, tagging and packing up the Christmas merchandise. I didn't quite finish ARGH, so today I get to continue. Tomorrow is the set up day, so it behooves me to get my rear in gear.
As I worked my way through the tubs of stuff, I came across these ornaments I painted several years ago. I thought perhaps you might like to see I can do something other than beading. My talents at painting are limited to what I can do following Donna Dewberry's videos on One Stroke. Most of the ornaments have roses as shown. Some have grapes because we sell on the Chautauqua Wine Trail. Before wine took over, our area was a big provider for your breakfast table by producing the grapes for Welches. But, I digress.... I also found two tubs of blank ornaments just begging to be painted. Michaels had a sale one year that I couldn't resist and I went sort of crazy buying clear and colored ornaments to paint on. I probably won't be able to get to them all in a lifetime.
I'm off to finish my chore. Oh, if it were just the only one on the list!
