from A to Z

    When you think of “A”, it’s thought of as the beginning.  ABCs

     So, if “A” is the beginning, then “Z” would be the end.  Wouldn’t it?

What if “Z” was only a re-spite.  Only something that happens to get you to something wonderful.

What if something better were to take place after you got to Z.  What if getting to Z wasn’t the end, maybe just a rest before starting at “A” again?

Maybe, “B – Y”, is just what will happen in the by & by. Maybe, just maybe it is a field of flowers ready to be picked, or adventures ready to be had!

Give Thanks! (better late than never)

??????????

It’s gonna be Thanksgiving soon!  Wow!  My life is flying, and I’m trying to catch up…  Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t!

My newest addition to the Etsy Shop  www.etsy.com/allbeckyscreations.

I Love the sentiment in these two words.  Something to ponder during the Holidays, but also every day of our lives.  We should always give thanks for all the good in our lives and in the lives of those we love and care for.

I should have started these earlier, like before Halloween.  But, hence that is not when I started.  I promise that I am not a procrastinator, but it would appear so…. NOT!  No matter…… Here they are!

Each letter is painted brown with green and gold leaf.  Each is an individual letter to be hung as you like.

I will be adding a self designed purse soon.  I’ve just begun to work on this purse, normally they do not take this long, but since I have no pattern to use…. just doing it as I go.  (Eek!)  it will be a little longer.

I’ll tell you what pattern I’ve been using and it must come to a halt!  Procrastination….. I always get this way around the Holidays…. I don’t know why, because I love this time of year.  I have always had a sneaky suspension that it has something to do with not wanting it to come so fast.  My life use to not go by so fast.  I think it would work better if it just wouldn’t do this.  As we get older, we should be able to savor each and every moment.  Well, we can savor these moments, if we can catch up with the moments that are flying by!

SchroederintreeIt’s gonna be here before I know it!  And, I love it so I’m glad it is…..

Opium Poppy

??????????

My latest paper mache letter – “O”

I saw an Opium Poppy for the first time recently. These flowers have such delicate petals of pink, red, orange and purple. Just had to paint them on a letter. So, what better letter than the “O”. The stamen is such a contrast from the petals, the flower just pops with color!
This paper mache letter is 8 inches.

Since I have decided not to sell my “P”.  Mainly because I am not to happy about it.  I have almost worked my way through the alphabet.

I must admit that I do have a time taking pictures that are light enough.  I tried taking several pictures of this “O”, but this is the best…. and yet a little dark.  ??????????

I took this one outside, but hence…. still a little too dark.  Ahhh, maybe not.  What do you think?  I’d love to hear.

So here are my letters, from A – O and maybe the P, but it will not be going in my Etsy shop.  http://www.etsy.com/AllBeckysCreations

I think these run the gamut of ideas…. child like themes,  whimsical themes, and with the flowers maybe just a few that adults might like.  I also have some letters that I have done for specific people….. here they are

Amelias A

Blairs B the one that started it all

and an “R”  that was given as a wedding present, the only picture I have is sort of blurry

Scot and Jessica

I thought this was a real cute idea, I painted lace on the very large letter in the couples favorite colors and attached white flowers in the bend.

On to a special item, I hope in time for Thanksgiving…..

Lollipops, Oh Lolli Lollipops

?????????? ?????????? ??????????

I have been working on this “L’ for forever!  It surprised me when I realized how intense it is to paint Lollipops!  I’m serious, it’s amazing…..

for those of you who have not followed my previous Blogger blog, I have creating these paper mache letters with interesting designs for a time now.  I am working on my “M’ already…..  a flower theme I think.

Here are some of the previous letters I’ve completed and now are for sale at http://www.etsy.com/AllBeckysCreationsABCs D in Lace completed elephants earth and elderberries F  for fence with pretty flower Gerbera Daisy G Heather H Ivy I
