Murals! What a great way to express yourself with paint.  The bigger the better!  All of the murals below where painted with latex house paint. I have done several others but am still looking for the photos.

Credit for my love of beading jewelry has to go to the Jones sisters  who taught me the craft.
 Thanks L & J we sure have made some cool stuff!
Beading jewelry can be time consuming. Many times I found myself consumed by a particular piece not wanting to put it down
" just one more row".

One thing that I really enjoy doing is painting and because I love anything miniature years ago I started working on the villages. There are all ceramic I buy the pieces unpainted and then I set to work painting. I have created one village for every holiday.  None if them is ever really finished I always seem to come across a new piece to paint.
