Let it Snow, Let it Snow

I love to paint on many different kind of surfaces. One of my favorite surfaces in a plain old coffee can. These metal cans will probably become a thing of the past since they are being replaced with plastic (boo hoo). I make wooden tops for them. They make good containers for just about anything, especially cookies.

This cute snowman was designed by Terrye French. It is from her painting book “Winter Holly and Christmas Jolly” published in 2000. Unlike me, some things never seem to grow old.

Would love to hear from you about your painting experiences and your favorite patterns that never seem to grow old.


What’s this … A Gourd Snowman

What do you do with a gourd that looks like a snowman. Only one thing, get out your acrylic paint. Look through your fabric stash for material to make a warm top hat and then rummage around for decorations.

Isn’t it fun to make something useful out of somethings not so useful.

This snowman will be so happy and love you forever.

Til next time, thanks for stopping by!

Sap Bucket meets Snowman

Just another snowman painting because … why not?

Everyone loves a snowman. This is a Terrye French design from her 2003 painting book “Wintry Friends”.

As durable rustic antiques, sap buckets have become a favorite media for craftspeople and can be used for all types of  indoor and outdoor decor.

This jolly snowman is soooo cute showing off his patriotic gingerbread men and skinny christmas tree.

Til next time … Happy painting!

Coming next, What’s this … A gourd snowman!

Snow Buddies

I love these guys! This is a design by Terrye French and I painted them on a metal coffee can. The kind that is becoming antique.

I finished them off with a wooden top that I made myself.

So cute, and great to hold anything from cookies to hidden treasures. Hope you like it.

Painting is so much fun!
