Can you believe I woke up bright and early yesterday morning with this lil' guy floating around in my head? I could not get to painting fast enough. I have painted a Grinch face bulb ornament before and finished up some spoon ornaments with him on them but wanted more of a full bodied bulb and this is my first attempt. I just can't seem to get enough of the green meanie these days...just itching to paint a tree topper...I envision a Grinch tree in my house this Christmas! Oh yeah, credit has to go to my creative husband for coming up with the button idea "no Christmas!"
Can ya tell I've had my head in the sand and surf? I have wanted to paint an entire collection of "beach" ornaments and this is the second in my series with the lightbulbs for ornaments. I love how this turned out. Was fun to paint santa's coat a different color other than red. Enjoy! Stay tuned for more!
This ornament is the first in my "beach" series. This is an original ornament designed and painted by me, Cyndimac! I have it listed in my Etsy shop and I will be listing it on ebay soon too. I have several new ideas for more beachy santas...stay tuned!
These are my latest bride and groom creations. I have a friend that loves anything with a monkey on it so to honor her 30th anniversary I designed and painted this cute set of a monkey bride and groom. I love a good challenge! She was pretty happy with these. I have another couple that loves frogs so naturally they got a set of a frog bride and groom. Of course, I have the gingerbread bride and groom and I have also painted a snowman bride and groom but don't have them put together yet with their veil and hat but that will be forthcoming. Am thinking about painting a santa groom and a Mrs. santa bride...stay tuned!
As I mostly only paint Christmas items, it is only natural that I have Christmas items to give away so more than likely each of my giveaways will be Christmas oriented. I might surprise ya and throw in a Halloween or fall item. Depends on my mood. LOL This first giveaway is a handpainted CD ornament with my fave thing to paint, Santa Claus. I just love crescent moon santas and this is my first that I am offering. Come on out and play!
The rules for this giveaway are simple:
1. Must be a follower of my blog; new followers are welcome to participate.

Although anymore I don't paint much else than Christmas things, here are a few Easter things I painted in the past. I used to participate in craft swaps with some of my online painting friends years ago and most of these were parts of those swaps...what fun that was! I do love painting on gourds and I have quite a few that are laying there waiting on me to get to them. Hopefully some time this year I will get to those...stay tuned!
I had totally forgotten to post on here that I now have a Facebook page. If you want to keep up to date on all that I'm painting I would love for you to "like" my page and follow along with me. I am planning on some new things this year, one of which are a few giveaways. I have been studying trying to figure out how to make it in this computer generated world. I just don't want to give up on my dream of making a living doing what I truly love and that is painting. Only way that I'm gonna be able to do that is to get the word out there.
