Ladies Love Grilling Too Crochet Purple and Pink Summer Apron

These are not time consuming to make, so if you want one in different color schemes, contact me for a made to order item. This was part of the August theme for Team Support and Promote. This is crocheted in Amethyst Purple and beautiful pink. I love these aprons for grilling, cooking, gardening, and as a rehab apron for those recovering from injuries. It fits me nicely, with extra tie, and I am a size 12. If you need a larger size, just ask. These are completely washable, I would lie flat to dry, as with any crochet item. I am hoping to get one more item created, before the August theme thread runs out. This item can be purchased in my Etsy store.

Etsy Sale Item Of the Week 8/21/15-8/28/15 Plus Free USA Shipping Victorian Cameo Pendant and Necklace

So, I still have not finished my Summer themed crochet apron, for my Team Support and Promote challenge. However, I did finish the painting, and that is now listed in my Etsy store. I will feature that another day.

Today, I am featuring my sale item for the week of 8/21-8/28. Each Friday I slash the price of a new item. This week it is this beautiful blue and white victorian lady cameo, set in resin, then made into a pendant and wire wrapped to the gold tone tear drop piece. Then a bail and a gold tone necklace to complete the piece. This would be awesome for a wedding, mother of the bride, or ladies who love more traditional jewelry. At 16.05 cents, it is definitely affordable, and if you are in the USA I ship to your for free. Start your Christmas shopping early this year, less than 20 bucks you can't beat it.

Unique One Of A Kind Yellow and Black Steelers Color Painted Peacock Abstract Art

Last week I did the Bills, this week the Steelers. My husband is a die hard Steelers fan. Next will be a team that has green in it's team colors, because Peridot is the birthstone for August. My black paint pen, that I outline with, decided to die on me last night. It is much more difficult to outline with a tiny paint brush, so I kind of was not super happy with this painting. It does look stunning in the pics though. This one is yellow and black, as you can see.   I will be doing one peacock for each professional team. They are available to purchase in my Etsy shop. I do not sell prints, just my original paintings. Please remember, that I list new, and renewed items each Friday. So, this painting will not be available until August 21st. I offer free USA shipping, and a layaway service. Christmas is coming, start getting ready now. Click here to visit my Etsy shop, and check out all my awesome items.

Are You Ready For Some Football?

I love football, but mostly just the pros. My hubby watches it all, but the NFL is my preference. I also love peacocks. So, I drew out a peacock, then painted it in the colors of my beloved Buffalo Bills, red and royal blue. I will be doing one painting in each team's colors. A more feminine football painting. If you are interested in one of these, contact me through my Etsy shop, and I will do your colors next. Each will be available in my Etsy store. I also will be making redneck wedding glasses, they are so cute, and am finishing up a Fairy Queen crochet infant Halloween costume, in purple and black. Not much jewelry making, just not in the mood for it. Check out my Etsy shop for all my cool items. I offer layaway! I just sold out of the soft pink resin butterfly keychain. So, if you wanted that, it is gone. This peacock painting will be available tomorrow, 8/14 in my Etsy shop.  Most renewals, and new items are listed on Friday through Sunday, so keep that in mind.

Picasso Painted Flip Flops Wear Your Art on Your Feet and A Painted Shower Curtain

This is the fourth pair of painted flip flops I have done. This pair, for whatever reason was the most difficult. I painted over the roses, didn't like them, painted over the pumpkins didn't like them, so then I decided to go for an abstract look. I love Picasso faces! They are so unique and interesting. So, I painted some Picasso inspired faces on these flip flops, and I love them. I will definitely have to do other sizes, and different face shapes. They are so interesting. These are a size small, and will be available in my Etsy shop on this Friday, August 13th.

 Also, today, I finally got to paint my shower curtain. If you follow this blog, then you know back in March I painted my whole bathroom, in reds and pinks, with white flowers. Even the shower walls got painted. So, of course I wanted a new shower curtain. Sorry, but I am not spending 40 dollars on a shower curtain. So, I painted my own. Now, I have to say this is not exactly what I wanted, but it will suffice for now. I had to spread it out on the front porch, which was incredibly hot even at 11 AM. Then I had to keep it stretched with my feet, while standing on it. My neighbors must have thought I was nuts, especially since I had my bathing suit on. That was on purpose, lol. I knew I would be hot and sweaty, so when finished I got in the pool. I used acrylic paint, and sealer, and it is hanging in the bathroom right now. I attempted some flowers, but eh I didn't like them at all on the rough wood surface of the porch. Next time I attempt this, I will lie it out on the old dining room table and go in sections. It did instantly brighten up the bathroom, and it looks quite lovely in there.

Fun Facts About Peridot the August Birthstone

Every month I try to share a fun video, or two, about the birthstone for that month. August is the Peridot, and my birthstone. I love Peridot, especially a fine lime green one. It is such a lively and beautiful color. Most gemstone will come in a variety of colors, not Peridot. It will always be green. Peridot may have more yellow, or a darker green, but it will never be red, blue, or purple. Peridot used to have more value than diamonds, thanks to the Egyptians. Enough from me, though, watch the video and see for yourself. After, you can check out my Etsy shop, to see if I have any Peridot available for sale. I do, lol. I hope to get more done soon. I have some pretty pear shape Peridot, just haven't had the time to get it made into jewelry.

Gloom and Doom with A Touch Of Pink Original One of A Kind Acrylic Painting

Since all it wants to do is rain here in Florida, I am getting very gloomy. So, today I sat down and drew out this picture, then painted it with acrylics the colors of gloom and doom. That would be grays and black. Then I added some beautiful neon pink to the light house, and even the bird. If it stays gloomy, I might do this in other colors.

 Last week, I drew out a peacock, to add some tangle doodles to, in football colors. I was supposed to paint that today too, but the other took too long. I am thinking of trying some oil paintings. I think I would be able to blend better if I used oils. I love acrylics, and love that they dry very fast. But, sometimes that is just not awesome. The only thing I am worried about with oils, is odors. I have a very sensitive nose, and it could trigger headaches. I will have to see. The flip flops, with pumpkin vines are no more. They annoyed me for the last time, and I removed all the paint. Now, to decide what I want to paint on them, lol.

Don't forget to check out my super sale item, on sale until 8/6, when a different item goes on sale. See it here.
