~~~Makin Mittens~~~~


Today I just want to send a big thank you to my BG (best guy) for cutting the wood to make these snowman and rose mitten ornaments. I have marked and cut many wood pieces of all types over the years, so this is a huge help to me, especially this time of year when things are really buzzin in my studio. He has always helped me with everything in my decorative painting career. Even in the days of having mall space, he would go with me each week to help me move furniture, climb ladders, set up lighting and tons of other details. All this while he works his own career and travels. He is a blessing to me and to all who know this giving and generous, Best Guy of mine! Thank you so much honey!

So with wood cut, sanded and basecoated, I am ready for makin mittens.
Many have already been added to my etsy shoppe and found homes, but I have a few more on the way, including these snowman and santa designs.


These mittens are ready to finish tomorrow. Shabby to chic and folk art, all going to the etsy shoppe shortly.

These are also ready and in the shoppe here hand painted from a study in Brushtiques 3. Wooden tags hand painted with winter light houses in a 3 piece set.




Pink pumpkins have found new homes with our sweet friends, Marydon from Feedsack Fantasy and Julie Marie from idyllhours.

I'm working on lots more creations and they will be ready soon. So back to the studio I go but I'll be back tomorrow to share a view thrifty items I found recently.
Also,I want to invite you back on Friday the 30th, when I will participate in a party hosted by Deb,Ladybug from Texas called "These Boots are Made for Walkin" The party will feature favorite boots, we love to wear. It should be fun, and works perfectly with my Friday Fashion too. If you would like to participate, click on the link and visit Deb.


Thank you for stopping by today, for taking the time to visit and all the comments on each daily post. You all are so very special and your comments mean so much. It is a very busy time of year and it may take me a few days to get by to visit you, but I will soon. Thank you for understanding.
Big Hugs, Celestina Marie

Celeste,
I especially love those ornaments with the snowy scenes with the lighthouses. All of your creations are wonderful. I am so glad that you met Judy, we have been friends for over twenty years. We remained faithful even when I was out of the country for ten years. When I returned we both opened up our etsy shops around the same time, and had a brand new thing in common. She is an amazing person.

I hope you have a lovely and creative week.
