SnipPet WIPs and Show and Tell

A Catfish, a Party Chick and two Sheep in process! These silly SnipPets are drying and should be ready to paint by the end of the weekend.




I received a fun package of goodies from my mom yesterday, so i thought i would share the quirky contents with you. She found a woman in Raleigh who recently bought a warehouse full of trims, ribbons, millinery flowers, folk art treasures, etc. from an 80 year old couple. The lady can't use it all, so she has been having big warehouse sales over the past few weekends. So cool! I have found a few spots around the house for some of these odds and ends...and the rest may end up incorporated into my artwork.






My hubby's mom and dad are on their way to Kentucky from Georgia right now! The weather is FABULOUS here, so it should be a lovely weekend visit. We will be heading to our favorite restaurants, taking a scenic drive through some horse farms and enjoying some jazz and wine tastings at a local vineyard. Oh, and I also want to go see that new Earth movie...hope we can squeeze it in!

I hope all of you have some fun plans for the weekend....what are you up to??
Hugs to all,
Carrie

Oh Carrie! Those pieces are going to be wondermous!!! I too am jealous of that box of goodies, looks like too much fun. Emmett gets to spend the night with grandma and help me lead music in church on Sunday. Other than that, I will have visions of Santas dancing in my head....
