Gift giving Season!!!!

Are you ready for the Art Shows , are you busy making those gifts for the coming season??!!!

I'm excited to share with you all that I have been doing to get ready for the seasons and its be fun making gifts like crazy! One of the items I'm doing are those great fun and easy shirts I've been painting. I have been taking Walmart shirts, using all the metalic fabric Folk Art paint and using my Paint Erasers and creating really nice designs on mylar, put them on my great priced shirts and pants and adding some fun One Stroke floral and puffing glitter while there wet and its done. So I'm using the face painting puffer glitter which is called fairy dust, its clear sparkle and I love it.... Also the puffers I used to have with Plaid are back and they come in 8 colors of glitter. I'm in love, you know me and glitz. I made about 30 shirts when school started and I haven't stopped. Its all I'm wearing now days and I'm stopped everywhere with people asking about the shirts.... Marzia from Italy is on our Dewberry Design team and she was so nice to share the how to's of this technique at Summit in July and teachers across the country are going crazy with it....I have some how to's on my site.....Plus a NEW FABRIC PAINTING DVD AVAILABLE. AND the last half of the year we all made them at Workshops.... Hey! Have you signed up for workshops for 2011
THERE IS A SPECIAL: One day $10 off and 2 days $40 off each day is normally $125.00 New exciting projects and the Dewberry U info shared at each event....
And I still have room for you guys to book some dates for 2011 to host Me in your area. Email me at and Amanda at to do so.

REALLY this is the first time in a couple of years I have gone fabric crazy. These shirts are rich and look very commercial? Is this a good thing?LOL I think so... I have also painted the scroll work butterfly that I paint on faces, and guess what I painted it on my shirts. I am using all the metalics for the butterflies also. Colleen in Arizona , she's on our Dewberry Design team also did a butterfly to die for.... maybe she will share it soon. The patterns for the shirts are on the
Crafty Wave site.

Holiday painting for my home and decor!

I am excited about doing new fresh Ornaments, painting placemats and wreaths for my door! I am having a party at my home for a few painters who are joining me in December to start the month off with wonders, and sharing some of my family traditions. I'm very excited about painting Holidays together. Haven't created them all yet but I'm having a great time creating and I can't wait to share the pictures of how much fun it will be. You know it makes me think that we will really be ready for a NEW YEAR's start for the new year...... And I will be traveling around the country again in 2011 and today Marc and I were thinking about having another event for anyone who would like to come to Florida or live in Florida in January and help kick off the New Dewberry U and more fun painting... We will have to plan it to be just as much fun as the December 3rd event , we just filled up today . And we can start planning January ! Sound FUN! YES! I'm crazy..... but love painting and sharing.... can you tell. I'm us late, not able to sleep just thinking about whats next for next year and I haven't finished this year.

January 21st and 22nd

Will have to get planning on what we will be doing and if its one day or two and after we figure how much we can pack in we will get a price posted so maybe it could even be a Holiday gift :) FOR YOU!!!!

Keep checking in on my blog to find out whats going on! I want to share more during the Holiday while I'm home a little more and I hope not to talk too much! You can tell I'm excited tonight. I have loved painting for the fall and I am doing face painting at church for over 100 children and adults this Friday night. I am excited to do my first large event with my new Face Painting paint..... You can to check out some of my pictures from the event....I'll share... And I want all of you out there who are painting during this holiday season and then share pictures of painting on faces with us all...

It all sounds wonderful, my sweet friend. Your passion is so contageous. Okay, guys and gals, if you haven't signed up for these events, what are you waiting for? I just attended my Level II cert a couple of weeks ago and it was FANTASTIC. I've been painting One Stroke for 4 years and I can't believe how much I learned. Don't miss the blessing!
