SEWING CATS and SELLING ART

Yesterday as I was working on the makeover of my ART STUDIO I cleared out part of my long desk to fit in my sewing machine... Just looking at that thing made me loose interest in the makeover and I just had to sew... A CAT... He is for SALE in my store on ETSY
This is a fun piece I made last summer with some adorable vintage children s playing cards..all painted and distressed on an old chalk board with a wooden frame, ready to hang... you can find this one on eBay
This girl is ever so sweet... created on heavy canvas board... she is on eBay as well
Vintage sheet music and crackle paint on a nice canvas...on eBay

Tomorrow is Swedish Midsummer and I don't know how I could forget that... for some reason I thought it was next Friday. I had to rush over to Ikea to get some pickled herring, cookies, Swedish fish, apple cider and crisp bread. Making a huge Swedish Sandwich Cake, Strawberry Cake and other traditional Swedish Midsummer goodies later tonight with the help of my husband and kids.

My oldest daughter is on her way home to the US from Sweden as we "speak", missing Midsummer in Sweden by hours. It has been years since I was able to go "home" for this big holiday. Tomorrow will be a blog filled with Swedish Midsummer so don't miss out... you have to come and celebrate with us...
