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!

The Art Challenge~~Day 5, Saturday, January 31, 2015

HOLY MOLY…I just spent a big bulk of time getting these 3 patterns into pdf form and I FORGOT how much time it took to resize stuff and check for words/symbols that didn’t scan…ROFL…NOW I don’t feel so bad that it took me so long last year to get most of my patterns into the pdf format!!  Yep, patting myself on the back!!  

 Today is my last day of my Art Challenge…It has been SO MUCH FUN getting to see the pictures that people have posted.  It has transplanted me, in some instances, to a place where I REMEMBER meeting so many of my Facebook friends!  

 I KNOW that I have never SEEN you in person and probably never will, but let me assure you that your friendships are REAL and I treasure each of you and what you have brought to my life…Thank YOU for accepting ME~~warts and all and I HOPE that you KNOW what you mean to me…
And that brings the reason I was converting pdf files into focus…to SHARE these 3 meaningful to me, Designs that I created to HONOR our Military.  

Our country is NOT perfect, our leaders are flawed, JUST LIKE each one who reads this is, BUT I APPLAUD the HONOR of living in the United States and I SUPPORT our Military and I PRAY for our leaders instead of BASHING them and spreading UNTRUTHS about them…we NEVER know what ANYONE deals with UNTIL we have walked in their shoes, SO THANK you to our MILITARY for ALLOWING us the FREEDOM to disagree, EVEN when we are WRONG and I send my heartfelt GRATITUDE to the families that support our military…Your sacrifices do NOT go unnoticed…GOD BLESS AMERICA and those countries who stand alongside us helping to protect FREEDOMS of ALL PEOPLE! 

The First Pattern is Called: I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag.  It has a light behind it.

The Next Pattern is called: 'Til You Come Home...this is another light design that could be left on while a soldier is away... or to simply help brighten a dark corner in HONOR of your soldier.

The last Pattern is Called Dandy Andy...It includes the line drawings for the 4 branches of the military...

 All of these patterns are available as INSTANT DOWNLOADS

I have enjoyed sharing on my Facebook page these past 5 days and I hope others have enjoyed seeing the pictures as much as I have...I HOPE that each one who has posted has FELT THE LOVE…I APPRECIATE YOU and your gifts…

Never be afraid to SHARE your ART!  We have been given gifts and we need to share them...we can never underestimate the doors that might be opened or the JOY they may cause someone...Blessings to YOU...~charlotte♥
