Rain Rain Paint Away....

Whenever its cold and rainy you can be sure im there having a whinge about it to anyone who'll listen..LOL. I secretly do like it but...i love being all warm and cosy inside my home with the air conditioner on, a warm cup of milo (thats a yummy hot chocolate milk drink for my O.S friends)in my hand (perhaps with a few marshmallows too)..hee hee...Ahhh....Night time is the best, especially when Sam, Shane and my Dad have all gone to bed and i can vege out in the warmth and the silence and paint away....
So thats what ive been doing this past week or so painting, painting, painting(oh in between nursing a sick kid, a dog at the vet and me sick as well...but who am i to complain hey)... BUT will someone PLEASE pass the pain killers though...my right arm is about to drop off and my head is thumping!

Ahh, doesnt matter *grin*

Anyhoo heres a piccie of my new painting and some sweet signs..all listed on My Website now :)





Something else thats kept me busy.....an order of 84 Faux Cupcakes for a gorgeous new store opening soon not far from me. It's called 'La Queen', dont cha just love that name? I'll be sure to take some pics and blog it when it opens soon.

Luv n Hugs,
Shann

Hi Shannon :)

I see you all the time at LeAnn's blog and Tracie's blog, so I wanted to say hello.

I read the story about your husband and I'm so sorry your family had to go through that. It really puts things in perspective.

You have a beautiful blog and you're very talented. I'll be back for sure.

Take care,
rue :)

Everthing is lovely. I can't believe you've been able to create so much beauty feeling the way you do. You're amazing! I do hope you feel better soon. Go take a cozy soak in your bathtub and then wrap up nice and snuggly in your bed and rest.

Blessings! Nancy

Love all the goodies you made! I have my eye on some of those signs....Wish you lived closer, I will have to check the shipping prices. USPS is raising the price of stamps on May 15th. Everything is just getting so darn expensive these days! Oh well....that's life:)

Hi Shann...
Love, Love, Love the new painting! All of your beauties are stunning... How exciting to get such a big order for your precious cuppie~cakes! ~glances around 'n then places a few lil pain pills in your hand~ I'm hoping your arm feels better soon... oh, all of you, actually; never easy when so much sickness is going around.

I appreciate the kind words you left for me... such a sweetie! Stay in touch...

~hugs~

Hi Shann,
Wow no wonder your arm and head are hurting and a thumping - look at all those beautiful cupcakes and those paintings - hey, maybe you need that pink ambulance after all pink lady!

I'm a night time person too, it is great when everyone's asleep and all the creativity starts flowing through your brain - in my case, it's usually all the diet Coke during the day too!

Love to come here for a lift, Shann and to smile. You're one in a million. Now go paint something else pink, but take it easy on that arm, otherwise I'm sending the pink ambulance (somehow) to take you to the spa - now is that a threat or what?

Hi Shann!
Your new paintings are just the sweetest things! It is so funny thinking that you are heading into fall and winter with cold rains, and we are here with spring and summer coming soon....stay warm!

Hi Shannon, your new creations are fabulous! I love the night time to create as well, it is quiet, the phone doesn't ring, the dogs don't bark and you can just lose yourself in your creations....and then you realise it is 2am and you need to be up to the children in 4 hours! Hope your ANZAC day was peaceful and happy, kiss noises Linda Lilly Cottage.
