Buy some art, or I'll bless your heart*

In the South, bless your heart can mean many things. According to Wikipedia, "it can be used as a sincere expression of sympathy or genuine concern. It can be used as a precursor to an insult to soften the blow." According to Southern women everywhere, it's usually a combination of all three. Basically, you don't want your heart blessed (so buy some art, maybe).

Seriously, I want you to love what I have to offer here. My paintings and stitched pieces are a little sweet, a little salty, and sometimes a wee bit inappropriate. But really, who doesn't like dainty flowers with the words, "well, shit" scrolled across it?

When I got divorced several years ago, the first New Year's goal I made was to learn to use watercolors and improve my hand-lettering. It kept my mind busy and gave me something to continually improve on.

As time went on, I picked back up stitching. My roommate in college taught me how to cross stitch and from there, I taught myself to do all kinds of things with a needle and floss. Yes, we were the old ladies who cross stitched before we went out at night! Now, I've honed that craft and am pleased to offer finished pieces as well as kits and downloadable patterns.

Thank you for visiting my shop. I'm always at the other end of messages for feedback, requests, and general chit chat!
