Holiday Market

A few photos from the Holiday Market I took part in today.  The weather was beautiful, the people were friendly, and the artwork and cards looked pretty good on display!  I had fun putting this display together (rather last moment, I must admit...).  My dear husband helped me stitch and tie the little treads on each handmade card.  He's a saint.  AND, now he can better understand just how much work goes into these little beauties!  Always a good thing.
I know most of you were not able to make it to the Holiday Market, but feel free to stop by the online market at both my handmade card shop and fine art shop.

NOTE!  Many of the paintings on my fine art shop are going to be deeply discounted beginning Monday (the 18th)!  Be sure to stop by and begin your holiday shopping!

I feel like I've been cutting circles out all day!  It's not the most exciting day job in the world (I think being a food and travel critic would be...) but it is most defiantly NOT the worst, or even the most boring.  I actually rather enjoy it!  I have a nice large table to work on, in a lovely room, with a sweet toddler at my side (well actually, she's usually crawling around the living room and sneaking upstairs at alarming speeds).  I'm trying to get my stock of BeautifulHello cards ready for the Holiday rush and for the quickly approaching Holiday Market sponsored by the Greenville Classical Academy. 

If you have any recommendations for my online "presence" or a local shop that you think these cards and tags would fit it, please let me know! 

About the stunning photos...  I recently stumbled across the Etsy Shop Walking to Jericho.  The photography is so artistic and dynamic, and they are having a BOGO! Just thought I'd share...  These three photos are just perfect for this time of year!
The weather felt so autumnesque (new word) and crisp lately that my husband and I actually made a mini Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday.  It was fun to cook together.  He's so wonderful.

Baby, You've Got What it Takes

This was just to beautiful to not share with you... and they included the L.O.V.E card from my new BeautifulHello shop!
To learn more about each item shown (and to see a couple more!) check out "Baby, You've Got What it Takes" for yourself!  It's a lovely collection of beautiful things.

 Happy Saturday to you!  Here is one of the paintings I've completed lately.  I've been working on several, completely different pieces this week.  One is green, almost abstract, and nature-inspired, the other is dark, rainy, and red, and this one is simple sweet, and girly. 

I love these flower; Camellias.  They are so delicate looking, yet grow in the harshest conditions of mid-winter (well, harsh by South Carolina's standards).  A couple foolish little blooms have shown their faces a little bit too early, so I captured their short lives in paint as quickly.  I know there is no snow yet, and won't be for a while (if ever around here!) But I'm calling this little painting "Snow Flowers" as a tribute to this winter bloom.  This painting is 5x7 and can be found in my shop for a steal!  I think this would be a fantastic Christmas gift for that hard-to-by-for, super-classy person. 

This is one of the last oil paintings I'll be doing for a while (that makes me very sad!) My husband, baby, and I are moving out of our home in a couple weeks, and I want to make sure that all the paintings I do will be dry in time.  Watercolors, acrylics, and pen-ink washes to come as well as many, many Christmas cards as I continue to launch my new line!  Check out BeautifulHello!
