None of the paintings are complete. I am creating them as I go along. Having fun with them, but nothing like the last minute to get 12 paintings and christmas cards (at 40) ready for Christmas. Sometimes I feel my best work is under presure. Here are 2 more pictures.
The picture with fleur de lis will be going to my sister, Wanda and her hubby, Ray. She suggested that I do a painting with both saints and LSU, which is about 60% completed.
I have been working on christmas gifts for family. I have 12 paintings (canvas) to do as couple gifts. here is a sneek preview of some of the picture. It is only a section of each picture. I still want it to be somewhat of a surprise to the people that will be receiving one.
this one with the oysters is going to be for a very special guy who I have known now for 28 years, my godchild and nephew. This mardi gras one will be going to one of my hubby's sisters.
Here are 4 of the 7 halloween cards that I made. Forgot to take pictures of the other 3 before sealing them in their envelopes. Below is the inside of the middle card. The eyes are on accordin folded paper so the eyes pop out when the card is open. All the older nieces and nephews got explopding candy. I have to make a trip to the dollar store today to buy some soft candy for the 2 little ones that are only 2 years old.
Peggy and I have went to a few crops at Scrappin Friendzee and when ever she sees a new face in the store. She take time out and introduces herself and helps them. This lady and her little girl came into the store with a stack of pictures. The lady was looking for someone to scrapbook the pages for her. Peggy said that she should scrap the pages herself because it is such a personal thing. Well the lady did not expect to be scrapping that day, but her and her daugther did 2 - two page layouts and a title page and she was hooked. Can't wait to see the finished album.
Finished my #4 painting. My son wants to sell my paintings. My sister's brother in law wants to buy my 1st painting. I am not selling any of them I painted them for my living room wall. I have now sketched out my 5th painting.
In the world of scrapbooking I am known by several different names.
Memorycollector is my name for my online group called "The Crop Room".
Paper Piecing Patty is the name that Garnet (MeMe Cat), and the Scrapping Cats started to call me, and everyone at the Scrapbook Cottage.
The Scrappin Packin Mommas, which is a group of 15 ladies in Harvey, Louisiana that meets once a month to scrapbook. Each of the ladies in the group has a momma name, and they named me Momma 411. The name stuck since I am the resourse person of the group.
