Lady Bug, Lady Bug

SK's newest children's book is being published.

Just a few projects left....

One breath at a time. Each time a small part of this project is complete I sigh with relief and enthusiasm onto the next. 

SK's New Cottage

From Old Leaning Structure To Fun New Cottage
by SK Sartell

This poor old building will  have a new life to live.  Built in the early 1910's and added on and on. Owners whom really didn't have a builders knowledge or skills.

Family Trees

Paint is such a fun way to add personality to a home. This family tree needed to be just a bit different than all the vinyl and painted trees. I didn't want it to conflict with the amazing handrail.

The tree was drawn on a paper template, cut and then taped to the wall. We then sponge painted around the outside edges for a 3-d effect.
Summer Lakey added her two bits up and down the latter for a few hours. Loved having her help me.

The owner plans on adding additional pictures and maybe even a birds nest for texture and definition.

Think Outside The Box...

♥ Handmade Gifts ♥

Whether it be for that special holiday or birthday a handmade gift is so much more memorable.

These pretty little wool felt booties were a gift to our granddaughter. I wanted to make something very special with bits of mink and a few pearls I had left from other projects.

Farmhouse Gets A Facelift

As a designer you have the privilege of perusing many clients homes.  I have had a great time doing this with several homes of one family. Each has a different eye for style and color. Each has been a joy to work with and I have had fun imagining  new spaces with these sisters and mom.
