A few special orders

These are 17 pound cement garden stones...12" in diameter and 2" thick. This is a garden scene with birdbath and two little birdies. Kind of hard to see, but they're there :)

The second is.....obviously not North Dakota. haha

Here are some of the slice black walnut ornaments I'm working on. I had to take pics at an angle because of the super fine glitter.

I have a canvas to finish, a lake home sign and 12 more ornaments and possibly 2 cream cans. I need to double check on those to see if they were Christmas gifts! ha I work best under pressure I guess.

When this all gets wrapped up, then I can play again! I have new oil paints and I'm dying to experiment with them. I almost returned them but decided.....NO!

Thanks for all your KIND comments on the polymer clay ornies. You're all way too sweet :)

Darla all of this is so lovely! And I know what you mean about returning things! I bought some new art stuff and almost returned it cause I hadn't used it yet but then said "No!" lol

Excited for you to get going with your new oils! :)

Hi Darla, it has been FOREVER since I have been blog hopping - I checked out your etsy shop again and I am just loving the color and depth in your backgrounds...I haven't tried oils...I think I have enough hobbies going, but one never knows! Love the orders...I have thought of doing stepping stones, but........... obviously procrastinating on that!
