Spring Art Scene

Get your 4 Leaf Clover on!

It has been a long, cold winter for most of the country. So with “frosty” cheer, I made some clovers to accentuate my warm and happy thoughts of Spring. I LOVE them and I hope you do too! Available now while supplies last in Rockford at Wonderland Books (in the Edgebrook Center) or right here [...]

Kevin Frost for City Council

Today is the Primary Election for officials in my city, Rockford, Illinois. If you are a Rockfordian, I hope you will head-out to the polls and exercise your right to vote.

Painted the Town!!!

Yesterday, I painted the town!  The Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau…asked me to paint their windows for holiday cheer/Downtown Holiday and to add more color to the city.

In the Gardens…

Every tuesday night in the summer is special in the Japanese Gardens. The breathtaking Anderson Gardens in Rockford, IL features live music and encourages guests to bring picnic baskets and lawn chairs.  In my opinion, it is a recipe for a perfect summer evening. In fact, I was so inspired I painted it! xox lisA  

Dad’s Shirt Pillow

The Dad’s Shirt Pillow is a great Father’s Day gift. It is a creative way to re-purpose, re-invent, and re-use one of dad’s old shirts.  You certainly don’t need to use a button-down shirt…”think” overalls for the farmer, robe for the judge, camo for the hunter, beer shirt for the beer enthusiast.  And fill the [...]

Garden Girl Apron

I love gardening. I hate pulling weeds.  So I have solicited the help of my daughter in the garden…and an old pair of jeans! Gardening and crafting can be easier with a denim jeans apron. Our very own Peggy Giannangeli whipped-this-up on her sewing machine. It is a great way to repurpose an item. I [...]

Memorial Day Painting

Happy Memorial Day!  I love my country. Grills are fired up, flags are waving, pools are splashing…but aside from all the celebration it is also an important day to remember…and honor. Today I give thanks for all those who have fought for the freedom that I have. As a tribute, I painted a canvas. A [...]
