I Do Stray Now and Then

I can't help it...
Now and then I stray back to my primitive, folk art handwork.

There's just something about working with vintage and antique textiles...
or recreating them.

Maybe it keeps me grounded to my history.

Either way, it pulls me back from the modern whimsy style I enjoy nowadays.

Oh... as I was saying,
I made more little doll quilts.
Go here if you'd like to see more.

Lavender Watercolor Sketch with Koi Water Colors & Sharpie Pens

I thought I'd share more of the watercolor sketches I did recently.

Since I'll be a vendor at the Lavender Festival again this year, I decided to work on some lavender designs.

So often I go straight for my Koi Water Color Set. It's compact and so convenient to use!


Adding details with a Sharpie pen is the last step.

Come back tomorrow to see more!

Watercolor Sketches Just for Fun

Things have been scattered here at home, so much to do, and trying to work in a bit of art here and there.

These fun little watercolor sketches are done in a cheap sketch diary from Walmart.

I keep longing for the day when I can go out in my room and paint all day long! Hopefully that will be in just a few more weeks.

65% Off Art & Home Decor Sale!

Hi everyone,

You read it correctly! I am offering 65% off all three Etsy shops with coupon code 65OFF. There is one requirement. Your total (before discount) must be $100 or more. No problem, though. Just add items to your cart, make sure it totals $100 or more, apply 65OFF code, and it's automatically deducted!
This means if your total is $100, then your real cost is only $35 plus shipping. Talk about a steal --- in a good way! :)

I never intended to discount my items this deeply, but I need to jump start a slow January.... AND I desperately need to clear out some space. Honestly, Hoarders would have a field day in my studio! ;)

Here are the shop links:
Simple Joys Paperie
Honeysuckle Lane

Lana Manis Designs

Don't want to spend $35? You can still use the half off discount for any total, no matter how small. This ends January 31st. Everything in all three of my Etsy shops is 50% off with coupon code GOODBYE2014.



While getting over this cold, I've been painting more, just practice pieces, filling up sketch book pages. Maybe I will have junk sale items ready for this weekend. Fingers crossed!

I do still have Puzzle Purse Valentines, Wild Cherry Burl Jewelry, Silk Ribbon Heart Pillows and more available at the Honeysuckle Lane Shop blog, they just aren't included in the discounted items.

Have a lovely week!

Take care & God bless,
