I, too, love to craft and decorate my home. I have painted and changed the colors of my walls so many times that my husband thinks we are loosing square footage. I enjoy painting and repurposing furniture. In fact, I will paint just about anything. I've even painted a pair of shoes with craft paint to match an outfit!
My love of painting and woodworking turned into a business and I published ten decorative painting books for crafters. As well, I became a contributing artist for two craft magazines. I now own a custom framing shop which keeps the creative juices flowing.
I am looking forward to sharing some of my ideas, decorating projects and crafts with you. So...just to give you an idea of what I like to do, here are a few past projects I have completed. Of course, there are no befores of tutorials becuase who knew I would need them!
