Christmas Fun with the Williamsons

Lee is confused. He thinks "My Little Pony" was his gift not Karlee's!

Lindsey will be mad at this pic of her, but she was sitting right next to me when she was opening her gifts and this is the best pic I could get.

Ashley got what she asked for! A thigh master! Thanks, Aunt Donna Kay!

It's not as easy as it looks! Just ask Kasey!

Karlee asks, "Just where is my present?"

My new niece, Jaci, smiles with her Lite Brite (upside down) while Grace looks on.

Finishing up orders

Here's some shots of a toy box I did recently. The room has a lodge theme. I painted the ceiling tile below to match.

Janelle bought this bookshelf for $5 at a garage sale. She wanted it painted with a giraffe print for her baby's nursery.

I had a WONDERFUL time with Shawn this weekend. It's almost like a home away from home!

It's Aggie Basketball season! We were all at the game recently. I hope to see as many games as I can this season! GIG'EM AGGIES!

I am still busy painting for Christmas! Thanks to everyone who ordered from me this year!

Alex came and spent the weekend with Lindsey. Little did she know she would have to help clean up toilet paper from our yard!

The culprits even wrapped my Christmas decorations. AAAAARRRRRGGGHHHH!

Agnes is back for the holiday season! The tree in the background is an original 1965 aluminum tree. I even have the box it came in. The new post card will read," Don't get your tinsel in a tangle. Ace can solve your heating and electrical problems whether you have a little or a latte!"

Have you ever heard of the game, Zim Zam? I don't know how many of these games Mama bought when we were kids. We would play it until the ball came off the rope. It is like tether ball but it is a tennis ball you hit with paddles. Mama and I found it on the web and ordered it. I think Lee and I played it longer than anyone else!

OOOOHHH WEEEEEEE! I feel like Aunt Ruthie on Warm Pie, Happy Home! I added extra meringue on this chocolate pie. Can't wait to dig into this tomorrow!

Can you believe it? This was an old metal army desk! Now it is a fancy desk and Christmas present!

Table Transformation

This table needed a little help. It was found at the old intermediate school where the new House of Hope will be located. Mrs. Park brought it to me and asked me to paint it. Here's the new table:

Getting in the Spirit!

I had so much fun with all these ladies! Doesn't their talent show? Thanks for coming and let's start planning a spring party!

Paint Party:Less than a Week!

Next Friday evening at 6:30, 18 ladies (so far) will be painting away on the above sign! I have 2 spots open if you are interested. I guarantee you will have fun visiting, eating, and of course, painting! There are 8 spots still open for the November 20th party. We will paint the same sign, but if you want to come and paint something on the reverse side, let me know!

I have been working on ornaments lately. Thanks to Karen's mom and Linda I have painted over 30 in the last few weeks. I won't be taking anymore Christmas orders, because I have been so busy trying to finish the orders I have. I appreciate your business!

Meet "Rock"sy!

Jill brought this chair to me a few of weeks ago. Oh my, she needed LOTS of work. First we started with filling in multiple imperfections with putty, then a good exfoliation. Once her foundation was ready, she was primed.

What a difference a good facial can do for you! Just the primer looks good on "Rock"sy!

After a week of paint and detail work, "Rock"sy is ready for Mrs. Yeager! Hopefully, she will bring years of enjoyment to Jill and her students!

Painting Away!

This table got a major transformation. April brought it from the junior high nurse's office and wanted it red with zebra. This poor table had a cracked drawer and must have had several layers of paint on it. I think she looks pretty good now!

I painted this stool this week for a baby shower gift.

These buckets came from Hobby Lobby. The black stripes were already on them. I just added the names, spiders, and a ghost!

I am making one more trip to Canton before Christmas. If anyone would like to order a name plaque for Christmas, please let me know this week, so I can plan how many boards to buy! Oh, the November 13th Christmas paint party is almost booked! I have about 2 more spots left. I have 8 more spots open for the November 20th party!
