My Latest Venture

I am still making and selling hand painted signs.  Yes, I ship (yes, it can get expensive).  I’ve also started a new business selling Color Street Nail Polish.  Click here to keep up with the latest news.

What is Color Street?

How do they work?

A little like like stickers only they are removed with nail polish remover.

You can shop my catalog here.

Here is a little sample of our Holiday styles that were just released:


I would love to help you get some great nails.  I would love to help you get some great nails for FREE (if that interest you…and it doesn’t matter where you live, near or far).

Here is why I joined…I have a 4 year old daughter and she has no patients for drying time for nail polish.  Then I took a look at the company…it is ground floor.  There is an enormous opportunity here.

Gearing up for Christmas

I’ve been working on signs again.

Summer 2015 279

I love how this one turned out.

 Yes, I sell these signs.  I am in the Austin, Texas area.  I am willing to ship within the U.S.  No I don’t “esty”…it is way too expensive.  If you are interested check out my Facebook page by clicking here.

Yes, I do take custom orders.


These aren’t my latest projects but they are what I did over Christmas.  Much easier and fun than I expected.  I made the “Believe” sign for my parent’s and the “Beloved” sign for a friend.


My friend finally hung it up and it’s super cute.

I loved this one and I plan on making one for myself as soon as I get finished with some orders and a gift project I”m working on.

How I did it…well, the word for the Believe sign was an old fence my husband rescued off of a neighbor and the Beloved sign was some pallets that had been sitting in our yard.  I mixed up some chalk paint (NOT Chalkboard paint).  I used a recipe from pinterest that basically adds some plaster of paris and a little water to almost any paint.  What this does is makes the paint work for any surface. Click here for more info on Chalk paint.  I used the plaster of paris recipe and did my dinette…I’ll post pictures at the end of this..I love it!  I’m a little obsessed with the chalk paint right now. In any case, a quick coat of chalk paint (which I asked my husband to do as I was cooking and cleaning for a Christmas party).  I printed off the letters for the words I wanted to paint on (I’m not a super great painter) and then traced the letters onto the wood and hand painted the letters on with a small artist brush.

Here are some pictures….

Now here are some pics of my dinette…I bought the table for $20 and it wasn’t even together.

This one is the finished project although I should really take a nice staged photo.

I know…I have a lot of color going on. That’s okay.  I chose an Indoor/outdoor fabric that is water resistant so I can hopefully clean it (kids!!)

Chestnut Praline Latte Review

I know y’all have been on he edge of your seats wanting to now if Starbuck’s new (1st new drink in years) is good. I’m a “gold card” member (that just means I drink too many fancy drinks) so I was sent a message that I could try it early. I’m not even going to go into how the email made it sound like it might be free.

I had to try it. My classic drink is the Carmel Maciatta, my holiday drink is the salted Carmel mocha, hold the mocha (for some reason their mocha seems gritty to me. Does anyone remember when they were offering to add protein to coffee…that was a long time ago) and sometimes just a vanilla latte.

I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t worth the almost $5. Too sweet!! Could they get any more sugar in this drink. It could be deadly to a diabetic! Granted I love the bitter with a chaser of sweet provided by the Maciatta.

There you have it. A Continue reading
