I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

The reason for the season

 In our tiny rural town, there is one home owner that always has a beautiful Christmas lighting theme every year. This year it was  
"Jesus is the reason for the season" 
with  a beautiful Nativity scene. I thought this close to Christmas I would share this theme too with my blogging friends.

Recently I was asked to display some of my hand work on the "artist wall" at our Church.
So since it was close to Christmas, I decided to create a couple stockings with a Nativity theme

Below is an image I created in my graphic program with vintage sheet music
with a scene of Mary and Joesph in the stable with baby Jesus.

I created this lovely cottage stocking using vintage crochet, lace, and vintage jewelry

Here is another image that I created in triple layers

And the finished stocking!

Absolutely gorgeous stocking! I cannot think of an excuse to buy it though, as my home is filled with handmade ones already...
I must resist!! LOL

Hi Debbi, your stockings are so beautiful. I especially love second one with the green.

I just wanted to let you know I changed my blog design again. I was in the mood for something new but my wallet is in sore shape after Christmas so I went with a free background for now. I played with some graphics and did a new header using the same cottage postcard as before. As much as I loved the last two I need some warmth ASAP! Hope you like it. I'm sure I'll be in touch with you again once the money flow is better.

Thanks for all your help.
