Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

Toilet Paper Roll Owls are Fun to Make!

I added another owl to the threesome. This one is my favorite, therefore I am going to give him to a friend.

These are really the silliest little things, but I am finding them to be a really fun and simple way to sort of fill-in when I am in-between more difficult projects or even while paint is drying on something else. Plus, I truly love the idea of creating with something destined for the trash!




  1. I L*O*V*E these darling owls. The colors! The cute faces! The detail!

  4. I love these little owls and my daughter and I are going to give them a try for a fun weekend craft. What kind of paint did you use?

  5. Hi Sherri. Thank you. I used acrylic craft paints and then sealed them with a brush-on, water-based, glossy varnish. Have fun making these with your daughter.
