We are having our 2000th Sale Giveaway

Monday, November 10, 2014



 
I am So thankful to all of my customers that made this possible!  So thankful to God for blessing me!  It is hard to believe that just a few years ago I had never painted before.  I had become very ill and had to quit my job as a police officer.  It wasn’t until after 8 years in Law Enforcement and having to quit that my eyes were opened to what I was born to do.  During my battle with the rollercoaster effects of Hashimoto disease I began to paint. Painting took my mind off of the illness and art became very therapeutic to me... I am so thankful that God took this painful time in my life and made it into something beautiful and something I love to do!  Please join us in celebrating our 2,000th sale!! 
The Winner will be announced Nov 17, 2014

Living Gluten Free

Saturday, October 19, 2013

      Wow!   It has been over a year now living Gluten Free.  When I started, I never thought I would be able to do it!  I looked at all the things that I loved and thought to myself, "There is NO Way".  Since being off gluten my health has improved dramatically!  My thyroid levels are finally stabilizing.  Here are a few things I would still like to try!


                                                                                           Gluten Free S'mores

                                                                                And a few Gluten Free items I love:)



                                                                               The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies


       With all of the wonderful options out there now, becoming GF is really not as hard as I thought:) 






Gentle Whisper

Wednesday, October 16, 2013






This world is too loud....for me anyway. So many voices, noises, so many things fighting for my attention..... I have had this painting sitting on my desk just waiting to be painted for sometime....

I want to hear His voice....

Then he was told, “Go, stand on the mountain at attention before God. God will pass by.”

A hurricane wind ripped through the mountains and shattered the rocks before God, but God wasn’t to be found in the wind; after the wind an earthquake, but God wasn’t in the earthquake; and after the earthquake fire, but God wasn’t in the fire; and after the fire a gentle and quiet whisper.
 1 Kings 19:11-14 (MSG)


God isn't in the busy, the loud or the noise....He is the still small voice....the, "Gentle Whisper."
