Wow where did the warm weather go? It has been dreary, rainy and chilly all week here. I am not a cold weather person at all anymore. Age does change you. However, the chilly days do put you in the mood for the fast approaching holidays. I've been doing some more painting and I'll post some pics soon. I was just getting into the fall theme and now it's time to put those down and get some Christmas/Winter themes going. Time is surely flying by. Time to get back to work for the remainder of the day, then home to paint some more. I hope everyone has a peaceful day doing what ever it is you might be into. See you soon!
Busy day at work then home, dinner, and painted the evening away. It was probably not such a good idea to get so many at one time started as now I have to come up with something to put On them. I have a few ideas for a couple of the pieces. Maybe I will have it all sorted out tomorrow. My etsy is in the makings so I've got to fill it up now. Keep checking...I'll be sure to post and update and link when I actually open up Andrea's Alley on Etsy.
Hi everyone! This is all new to me so be patient I will get the hang of it soon. My first post is going to be a "what's to come of sorts". So what is to come? I want to share with you the crafts I make, tips that I want to share, maybe even a how to here and there, or a recipe. As I have arrived at a new point in my life I am hoping to take a new path "or alley as it were" and see where I go from here. Stay with me as I stroll down this path and I'll be sure to share what I see and learn as I go.
Crafts have been a part of my life since I was a child. I guess you could say I come by it honestly. My mother was always making something and even supplemented the household income with them. That is now what I hope to do. My brother is a Fine Arts professor at the University of Alabama and my sister is a Potter. The tradition has carried on down through the years now with my children who love to make things whether it be in drawing, or my daugher enjoys many mediums just as I do.
I am a transplanted southern girl who began in Florida and moved to North Carolina when I was 13, and I have been here ever since.
I hope to share my thoughts, my musings and even a tip or two as I go along. This is a new venue for me so please bear with me as I embark on a new part of my life and won't you come along on the journey with me?
