Champagne tastes on a Beer Pocketbook~ TREASURE HUNT~GIVE AWAY!

Hello Friends,
I am sure that a few of you can relate to this title. I know sometimes my pocketbook has only enough funds for water. which is free LOL Mom has always told me that fits me to a T, well I think that is one thing I inherited from her. LOL
I can be very thrifty. I am cheap on most things. Somethings I buy middle ground.
When it came to my studio I knew I had to be cheap. But that doesn't mean it has to look cheap now does it? You can goodies that are very reasonable. Lots of things can be remade and that is helps spruce them up. Giving new life to something that would have been replaced,thrown out or given away helps save money and Mother Nature.

I purchased a print from a artist I have admired for sometime now. I love the prints option as I can't get a original. Just not in my budget.:(
I saw Danita's prints after her release on PFATT on her ETSY SHOPPE and couldn't help myself. I had to have this print. It made me smile. Remembering days when just watching grass grow was all I had to do that day. Yes, on Sundays that is all I had to do as a kid. SPOILED I KNOW!
I purchased the frame from Goodwill and it needed some love let me tell ya!LOL that thing was ugllly!The mat was icky yellow tan and the framed was beat up pretty bad. I got it for $3.00 though. Brought it home painted the mat white and spray paint and there you go. Cheap, easy and I LOVE IT NOW.
SOOO YOUR CHALLENGE is go to Danita's etsy shoppe and tell me what print is your favorite and why? ****I am GiVING AWAY one of her prints to ONE LUCKY WINNER!!!!!**. It will be purchased and sent directly to you. She does sign these prints.
WhY? am I doing this? Well I was supposed to have a give away in June. Life happened and got in my creative way. I am just now creating but not fast enough. Besides I know that some of you are like me, love art and simply not in your budget. I hope that you will frame it and show it to me. That would make me smile.
So the hunt is on. Have fun and can't wait to see all the pretties and hear why it is your favorite.
Happy treasure hunting.

One man's Junk is another man's treasure

Or woman's treasure. LOL
This is a HUGE piece that I got from a friend. I am using it in the studio and infact when I got this piece I didn't think it was going to fit. It has caused me to change my entire plan for the studio. I think I am liking this new plan even more then I had originally thought. Some color changes have taken place. Some style changes have taken place but all in all it if coming together.
Don't worry we will be doing the reveal sometime this year. LOL I just can't show it messy and now it is messy. I have been working on some things but have been gone a lot too.
DH has been sick and so back and forth with the doctors taking care of him. I do hope he gets better soon. Poor guy. Hopefully the new meds work otherwise it will be surgery.

Okay kids will have more to show soon. Just little peeks here and there.
I am wiped out so I think I will hit the hay.

I wish I had some Magic

Merlin~ SOLD~ I ~WISH~ I had those eyes!

I wish I had some magic. I need some for creating. I am so tired of late. Doing too much and some days too little. A little bit of funk I guess. We all get that way from time to time.
Tomorrow is my anniversary so there is a reason to celebrate!! 28 years. WOW that seems like forever. I think we shall keep it easy tomorrow. Simple dinner, maybe out and movies. Should be a warm day hopefully so that will be nice. Just being us, no kids and that will be a change. LOL

Just wanted to pop in and say hello! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

~ NEW~ ArT

Hello Everyone,
I created something a little bit different this month for PFATT MARKET PLACE and could not wait to share it with you. I had so much fun playing. I haven't had this much fun in a very long time. Here is a little teaser of one of them for ya. I know I am bad, just can't help myself. LOL

I have a huge mess in the studio now but it is easy enough to clean up. I hope:/
I want to make one more before I go back to doll making. I still have a small order to complete as well.

I updated my ETSY SHOPPE as well this week. I have a few more goodies to add in the next couple of days. You can find the link on the right or click on the words ETSY shoppe on the first line of this paragraph.

I had a busy day. Finished up the deadline by the skin of my teeth. LOL then off to Mom's to help her. Poor thing threw her back out and well she just can't do much. I had to take down some really ugly curtain rods that are useless to her. That was a nightmare. Of course she was up on the stool too,(STUBBORN) trying and there went her back again. She stood there and cried being in so much pain. Of course I start crying too as there is nothing I can do. I can't stand to see her cry. It just kills me.
I am gonna go back on Friday to check in on her. I hope she will get it back into place. No Doctors will touch her back. She had polio and it blew several disks because of it. They said she would never walk again and she ran after that. She is strong minded. People ask me why I am so stubborn, I reply most days... "Have you met my Mother?" LOL

On that note I think I will hit the hay early. I am simply too tired.
Have a wonderful week.
Blessings to you and yours,Pea

Now I have heard of everything!

Well, friends what a week I have had. Where do I start? At the beginning I suppose.
Mom has been seeing a lot of doctors lately. She was very anemic and it seems actually had some blood loss. She ended up in the hospital. They gave her a transfusion and seems to be right as rain now. Although it has been a very long couple of weeks I am glad that it is over.
Want a giggle? While I was taking care of Mom she asked me to do her a favor. Get out her emergency curtains. I replied what? Emergency curtains? What the hank is emergency curtains? LOL
I found out that my Mother the planner for any event had among other things emergency curtains. Her answer was this." Well, you never know when you will have unexpected company from out of town, or move and you need curtains today. So these go in the top of the suitcase for just such emergencies." I laughed so hard I cried. I told her I was gonna blog this. She thinks that is funny. Now before you ask. NO, I am not the planner/organizer my mom is and I do not have emergency curtains.LOL If any of you do, you have to let me know.
The studio is still under fine tuning as I have been gone for nearly two weeks with mom. Now I have to get busy and create a few things. I hope to have the studio done next week. Right after I make this big mess. LOL Only time will tell.
I am not making plans anymore. It seems when I do a kink arises and plans are changed. I am just gonna go with the flow.
Have a wonderful week everyone.
