Fun pictures! I vote for the chalkboard paint -- although the nursery wall abc's are really great -- but I don't think that was one of the five?

Cristie said...

I love them all, but my fave is the chalkboard paint. I think we're moving into a new house next summer, and I'm dreaming of chalkboard paint in my new kitchen.

Oh I'm so glad that I just happened upon your blog. Just love your artwork. I love words in paintings! You are quite a talented lady. I love to paint myself and have shown just a few of my artwork on my blog over the past few Saturdays. I'm been afraid to do it before but feel God wants me to be brave for him with the gifts he gives to us.

It's so nice to meet you.

What a fun post! You've certainly had a colorful year. :) Fun way to showcase a great group of memories.

BTW...I love your mantle. The little bird on the branches is precious. And I love the tree painting. Then again....I love ALL your paintings. You have a way of making every color look like a happy color. :)
