About Me

My photo
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

Books, Friday, October 24, 2014

This is my latest Special Order.  I had a tough time trying to decide WHAT to do with this.

My FIRST thought was to put the saying in the middle and then surround it with BOOKS with the names of the customer's favorite books written on the painted books, BUT it just wasn't clicking with me.

I KNEW that I wanted the background to be Green...I could EVEN see the color in my mind...

I searched on the internet looking for ideas, but nothing came, UNTIL I saw a bookend that had a girl curled up on it reading a book...THAT was the moment I had FOCUS!

I chatted with a friend and told her my idea and then she suggested a window seat, so I thought I would give it a try, and I think it worked out pretty well!!

I decided the window needed to be TWO windows...I didn't want to add too many details to the outside...I wanted the focus to be on BOOKS...

I added LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of books to the shelves...WHEW...that was a LOT of BOOKS!

This is the girl that inspired me...she was only a silhouette, so I added some COLOR to her!

I think she is DREAMING of being inside her book!

NOW, I have to wait to see IF the customer likes it and if she wants any changes, BUT I am happy with it, so the WAITING GAME BEGINS...

Have the most AWESOME of days...Blessings to YOU...~charlotte♥
