Welcome to my little artsy creation! All images are copyrighted by Charlene Celio
Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog! Take time out to put your feet up, drink a cup of something hot or cold, and be refreshed. As you read, remember that You are God's amazing creation and He loves You!
I love sewing, smelling lavender and painting so combining these three activities into one tiny bundle delights me to no end. Here you can see some of the steps it takes for me to make my lavender sachets. I grow the lavender in my front yard from two plants and my next door neighbor also is giving me her lavender now. Then I harvest it and let it dry in pillow cases and roll the cases to release the seeds. After I paint the paintings I take a photo of them and then copy them onto printer fabric. The fabric is then ironed and cut and sewn onto pouches. Then I clean up the lavender by sifting it etc. and scoop it into the pouches. There you have it: 72 pouches of lavender and 2 days later! I'll be selling these lavender pouches at my 4 upcoming shows in October, November and December. One of the shows will be at Villa Montalvo at their Yuletide celebration in November. Come on by! There's one with your name on it!
I'm a mother of 5, mother in law to the two wonderful ladies, Katina and Gabby, and "over the moon" for my granddaughter, Evie. I'm married to my words cannot express how great he is husband, Rich (jazz drummer extraordinaire). I also am a fan of my son Jonathan's painting, drawing and comedic talent, http://cave-o-horrors.blogspot.com/, and of the very talented actress, Katherine Celio, www.katherinecelio.com, and so proud of my daughter Aletheia who designs Apple Computer's web page. I go to lots of my daughter Bethany's soccer games and soon will be Grandma again to my son David and his wife Gabby's baby boy, Andre. I created this Fine Arts business in 2006 and hope it lasts for a very long while.
