Mary Engelbreit -- Eat Your Heart Out!

Here are two views of a small stool I made (only 6-1/2 inches high) and painted in the Mary Engelbreit style. I am going to try to sell it at the Co op -- yes, I decided to stay at the Co op a little longer. I really enjoy painting in this style and have a few more things I am going to do this way to see if they sell -- including a Recipe Box, my next project. I will be anxious to hear what my daughter and sister have to say about this project.

Well, I don't have any projects to report on that I have been working on lately. It seems like nothing I take to the Co op sells. I guess I'm feeling pretty discouraged. My daughter took the Latchmaker Table and put it in her living room -- I'm glad she likes it. We put two of the flower benches in the living room rather than give them to the Salvation Army.

I have decided to pull out of the Co op this week. We are just not making enough money at it to make it worthwhile. So, as soon as I make something I will post it on this blog. My daughter is the only one who reads it, so I guess I don't really need to hurry, as I can tell her on the phone what I am up to.
