May 2011 Photo Deal

May is for Moms! And since I'm crazy about Mom's everywhere I'm offering a special deal on photo work from now through May!

Here's the deal. You email me a snap shot that includes a real, bona fide Mom and I'll spend up to one hour on it, clean it up and do my fancy, smancy photo manipulation thing to it and email it back to you for only $10.00. Once you have it back you can print it all you want, share it on Facebook, or email copies to all your friends. It's yours to do with as you please without any fear of copyright issues from me.

What a deal! I usually charge at least $28 for this service.

Here's a little sample of an hour's work.

I've been doing a little typing lately.

This was a custom piece I did for a wedding anniversary.  It uses letters from my Paris, Tennessee Letter Art and was printed on a large canvas.  I have always done custom art for folks -using their photos, their words.  Sometimes they give me their ideas.  Sometimes they just tell me to see what I can come up with.  If this is something that interest you send me an email.

25 Ways To Say I Love You

All You Need Is ...

Both of these Typography art pieces are available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors
 from my online art gallery.    These would make great anniversary presents.

What Have I Been Doing????

What have I been up to lately you ask???

Watching it snow.  Took this about 3 weeks ago right after it snowed.

Doing a lot of letter art.  This one was for Jack Jones Flowers & Gifts.

Feeding the fat little birds over at Mother's house.

Making pendant jewelry.  This one is over at Jack Jones Flowers & Gifts.

Watching it snow!

Yipes!  Exploring "Snake Jewelry" at Paris On The Square

Watching it snow!  I think this was last week.

Making more jewelry.  This one is at Schemes & Themes.

Wondering what kind of critter left these tracks in the snow in my back yard.

  Making More jewelry!!!  I think I'm addicted.

And of course ... watching it snow.
I am so ready for spring!!!!!

The Word "No"

After about 16 - 17 years (we aren't sure how old Murphy is) he seems to be actually responding to the word "No."  Has he finally figured out what it means or is this just a courtesy considering our long friendship.  But at least now when I say "No!" he at least pauses in his misdeeds, looks at me and seems to consider what I have said.  Then he usually goes ahead and does whatever he want to do.

The War on Cat Hair and Dander

Found a new weapon this morning for my war on cat hair and dander ... the vacuum cleaner.  Not on the floor ... on Murphy. Can't believe he actually let Eric vacuum him.  Eric had the brush attachement on the hose rubbing it all over Murph.  He seemed to really enjoy it.

Lost Notes

Dear Friend,

This morning I found the note I wrote myself to remind me that I was supposed to be at your house yesterday to look at your yard project. The note was on the floor under my desk. It had two tiny little holes in it and had been slightly masticated. I asked Murphy if he knew how this had happened and all he could say was, “Ich, ich…” I really have no excuses except to blame it on Murphy.

Winter Doldrums

Had the Winter doldrums the other day and went exploring shops in Paris. Found a new one … Schemes & Themes at 1042 Mineral Wells. It’s been there a while but it’s tucked away off the main street.

Love this place! Really brightened my day.

What did I like the best????


Prom dresses!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know, I know. I’m a little old for the prom, but where were these beautiful dresses in my high school days??? There are also pageant dresses.

A closer look. Yum!

However, I really liked this little fella too.  You know what a sucker I am for animals.  This is "Lover Boy."

Oh! Did I mention the shop is owned by LaDonna Tidwell.   You can visit her website at
