Monday Morning Merchant

Today for my Monday Morning Merchant from PAFA on Etsy is Vicky from Paintspots n Splinters.
Not only is Vicky a mother of 6 with a set of twins(WOW), she is also a very talented painter.
Vicky named her business after hours of deliberation and then decided to go with what she uses most in her creations, paint and wood, thus Paintspots n Splinters.
She is inspired by anything and everyone. Her passion is whimsy but she also dabbles in primsy (a combination of prim and whimsy). She uses mostly wood but does paint some on fabric. She uses mostly acrylic paint but does use oil paint on some of her finer paintings.
As you can see from these pictures, her work is AWESOME! She is a very talented painter and you can tell from her creative items that she loves what she does. here are some of my favorite items in her Etsy shop. I absolutely LOVE the little chick coming out of his shell!

Here are the links where you can find Vicky. So head over and check out all her adorable items she has for sale and be sure and check out her blog.

Is that blue braided rug in the slide show thing one that you made? Its nice :) I have always wanted to know how to make those.

Gotta run. Take care, Janet W

Yes Janet, I make those. They sell for $5.00 each. I can make them in any color and they are about 8 or 9 inches. There is a site online that gives directions. Just type Hopi Indian Weave in Google, Valerie
