Help from Friends

Thank you Stephanie from My Calico Heart for helping me add websites and blog links! Stephanie makes the most gorgeous fabric items and is a fellow member of the Crows 'n' Roses ebay group. Have a peek thorugh her blog for pictures of what she makes - she has the most gorgeous angels and hearts made for her Christmas craft sale! I am not surprised you had a great sale Stepahnie!

Because of Stephanie's help I was able to add two website links today - St. James Place the webite of Connie Parkinson, and also the link for the online store - Vintage Home.

Connie is an artist from California who paints the most exquisite roses, teacups and cottages! She teaches, designs pattern packs for sale and has five published painting instruction books, as well as a teaching video and CD rom - all available in her on-line shop! Have a peek through and don't forget to look at her gallery and her Rose Gallery. You will be amazed at her talent! Not only mega-talented, Connie is also very nice and extremely helpful! My goal is to get over to America and be in one of the classes she teaches all around the USA and Canada. She is teaching In Las Vegas next week at the creative painting convention.

Vintage Home is the ultimate website for anyone who loves the vintage look and lifestyle. Clare and her husband sell the most wonderful array of fabrics, paintings, china, and homewares through their UK based site - and it too is just a feast for the eyes! Have a peek too at her blog - it has gorgous photos of her home and the treasures they find! I find myself wanting to live in these pictures! Her website is newly updated and is beautiful - I love the colours and the feel to it all.

I myself am in the middle of making lots of distressed signs and block sets for a craft sale this weekend. I am in a mood for coffee and cakes and so this seems to be the running theme - both colour and motif wise, and I hope to put together a few cupcake signs and hearts to take with me on Sunday to sell. (Well that is the intention anyhow!) My own coffee break is at an end and so I will go and get back to the paint!
