"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

I've Been Busy Creating

I've been very busy 
creating some original items 
to put in my new Etsy store.

  I am hoping to have my
Shop Announcement 
ready to go in the next day or so.

  The creating part is something I really love,
but getting all of the Etsy ins and outs
of setting it up correctly, is taking more time
than I expected.  I'm sure everything will flow
much smoother in the future
after the initial set-up is finished.

So here is a sneak peek of a
few of the items I've been creating.

I love zebra stripes and I love daisies
(bet you didn't know I love daisies!!ha)
so.... I put them together.
"My Zebra Daisy Pendants"
each one designed using
my original watercolor and ink mini paintings

This last pendant was really an experiment 
that I ended up loving!
Truly the photo doesn't do it justice
because there are bits of sparkles throughout 
but it didn't show up in my photography. (argh!)

I actually designed and watercolor painted onto
some architectural paintable vinyl wallcovering that
I had left over from redoing a paneled room in our home.
I like the different textured look 
it adds with the butterfly.
It's much prettier when you see it in person.

So there you have it!
...My sneak peek...

Here's hoping this week you all have some
"daisy kind of days"
   along with enjoying some butterflies
as you sip your mint ice tea,
relaxing under a nice big shade tree!
If you happen to see a zebra,
then please think of me, goofball Lee Ann, 
and have a good ole' belly laugh!

Oh and come back and tell me about it pleeeeseeee!!!!
