Whew, I don’t know about you, but for me, the rush up to Christmas was crazy!! Getting all of my custom orders completed, my kids’ class Christmas parties to organize, baking, cleaning, shopping, (and some pretty serious tragedies going on with a few friends)…..it was almost too much to handle! Everything got finished and my family was able to enjoy a wonderful mini-vacation at the amazing Big Cedar Lodge.
It was a much needed time of rest, relaxation, and family snuggle time. 🙂
Big Cedar Lodge
Then we came home to celebrate Christmas and our city was blanketed with 10 inches of snow. It was beautiful, until the power went out and we were without electricity (and heat) for FOUR days! This Christmas was one we will never forget; we all learned to be extremely THANKFUL for what we have!

Today I was thankful to be back in my studio with a paint brush in my hand. Boy it felt good to get working again! I started painting this french provencal dresser in Wrought Iron.

La Craie now has 3 new colors:
St. Anne – Emerald Green

Le Dirt – Antiquing Dust: A special detail that makes your painted finish look authentic and unique. Pounce this dust into crevices and cracks of a detailed frame or furniture piece to achieve an authentic vintage look.
