Yup! You guessed it. I’m getting a head start on my crafts to sell in December. I never get bored with painting winter scenes. Love snowmen, gingerbread people, and penguins! I just finished these. Aren’t they cute?

Next up? A bigger project. Haven’t decided on what yet.

This week I did some de-clutterizing (I know…that’s not a word, but work with me…) and cleaned out my wood pieces. I’ve accumulated too many, so it’s time to downsize.

Now my workspace is organized again. Phew.

Happy crafting my friends!

P.S. Watch for an upcoming post where I will be interviewing my favorite designer—Jamie Mills-Price. I’m so excited. 😀

Do you need a clean space to craft (or write)? I do. Share your secrets in keeping it organized.

    Your painting is so beautiful Sissy. The detail in each piece reflects the character and brings it to life! Love ya!

    These are super cute! I can’t wait to see them “in person.”
    I declutterized my fridge today. I’ll also be working on some paperwork in a little bit.
    While I do work well in a tidy, organized space, the most important thing is that my mind is focused and declutterized. Otherwise, my thoughts bounce all over the place. It’s hard to write anything understandable when that’s the case.
    Have a wonderful week, my friend.

      Thanks!! Declutterizing the fridge is NOT a fun job, so good for you! I totally agree…when our mind is cluttered it’s hard to focus on other things! That’s the one thing I love about painting. It helps declutter my brain! (well, most of the time!) 😀

    What a great start. Your ornaments are beautiful. You could hang (store) them on a tree in your craft room and admire them as you continue to add more during the year.:)

      Thanks, Heather! I love painting. I’m starting a bigger project now. Can’t wait to finish it and show everyone. It’s a piece with four different scenes–one for each season. So cute!
