"Crossover Artist"

Well, if you decorate cakes AND you can paint......then you can paint cookies. These are chocolate covered cookies (store bought) painted with food coloring. You can find out more about cookie painting Here: Yes, they are edible!

Anniversary Cake

Yep, I can do a bit of cake decorating too! Imagine how good I'd be if I'd only focus on one crafty thing! I made this cake for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary last May. The design was inspired by a cake in a Wilton book. It took me 7 days and 9 cake mixes to make this cake! Someone asked me after to make a wedding cake for them and I said "NO!!!!" Shew that was a lot of work! I quickly sold all the pans and the cake stand on the bay so no one else would ask!

Iris Painting

It's really hard for me to do this only half way (without the perfect banner and perfect signature line, etc.) but I need to. If I can't do the whole job all at once and perfectly, I don't bother even starting. Life is kinda busy so I've got to learn to take baby steps to get a big job done. Here comes some practice.....a post without all the fancy stuff....

Let's start this blog off with one of my most favorite paintings. This was inspired by Maribel DelGado (sp?). It hangs (I did eventually hang it) in my dining room. I've replicated this style several times in other things I've done.

Just starting today.....under construction
