It also makes a nice gift to share with teachers and friends. Although I love the peppermint, chocolate combination, I also love the chocolate,Read More →

No Advent celebration is complete without a Nativity. Here, wooden peg people are turned into simple Joseph, Mary and Jesus figures. Although this is really a craft for 10 year olds and up, even the wee people in your family can help by painting the bodies, squirting glue, and, ofRead More →

Over the years Michelle and I have done many projects that actually haven’t wound up on Wee Folk Art. Usually, we just get too busy to worry about our cameras or sometimes we’ve had other plans for our projects, and we haven’t included them on the blog. One of theseRead More →

I can’t believe how quickly time scurries by… Four years ago we shared our Advent Celebration with our readers. It is a four week long program and each week we focused on a different theme: Week 1 – Gift Giving from the Heart, Week 2 – Symbols of Christmas, WeekRead More →

Note: I DO NOT share my watercolors because I think they are perfect. Quite the contrary. I am self-teaching and learning, and I hope I can encourage other would be painters to join me in the journey 🙂 Remember… I’m not seeking perfection, I’m seeking JOY. As my love affairRead More →

I know I should be packing up all the Christmas stuff and knitting more practical things right now (the kids could all use more mittens) but I wanted to make something new for my sweet, little yarn tree this year and didn’t get a chance to during the holiday season.Read More →

You would think, after 59 Christmases, I would run out of new things to make. HA! Not even close! Over the years my tastes have changed, and as they do, my house changes with me. My tastes, although eclectic, now run on the “simple side”. That is why when I sawRead More →
