Happy Holidays!

Well....its been a long time! Just want to say Happy Holidays to All my Great Friends that follow me online. “This Christmas mend a quarrel. Seek out a forgotten friend. Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust. Write a letter. Give a soft answer. Encourage youth. Manifest your loyalty in word and deed. Keep a promise. Forgo a grudge. Forgive an enemy. Apologize. Try to understand. Examine your demands on others. Think first of someone else. Be kind. Be gentle. Laugh a little more. Express your gratitude. Welcome a stranger. Gladden the heart of a child. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth. Speak your love, and then speak it again.” ― Howard W. Hunter Christmas from around our house to yours!

Laundry Room Remodel

I have a lot of catching up to do... I haven't been blogging in quite some time. Laundry Room Remodel.... Before. First we removed the doors off of the existing cabinets above the washer and dryer. Removed the baseboards.  Painted the room Sherwin Williams.  Here is Dave, painting cabinets and in the lower pic, Chopin & Monet examining the transformation. We found flooring at Lowes. It was a good quality stick on squares.  New trim was installed around the baseboards and door. I had found these lockers in Pottery Barn.  Gosh! when I saw the price... I called my husband.  Luckily, this man can build anything. Give him the pic and he can make it!  The room is odd shaped, not perfectly square. He built them to fit our space. Notice the place on the lower right for the litter box.  We decided we liked the black brackets and numbers. Hope you enjoyed this project!

2015 Where Bloggers Create

Welcome to Foxhollow Studio. I live in southern Oklahoma. Creating mixed media and jewelry made from vintage pieces are two of my favorite things these day. I also do a little card making and projects with my Silhouette Cameo.  I work full time as a Realtor and I love coming home and spending time in my art room.  This duo is generally close around when I'm trying to be creative... Meet my little boy, Chopin, my Burmese kitty  and....Monet, my sweet little female Burmese kitty. There is generally a lot of glitter going on here...often it is on the kitties. I love collecting vintage shakers for storing as well as displaying my glitter.  I love the blue makes me happy!  The space is filled with many of my art creations and finds from my travels to France and flea markets around the country. Some of my other displayed items are from art swaps.  I purchase a revamped china hutch for storing art supplies and displaying some of my favorite things.

Art on the Coast of Washington

Blessed to call these people my Friends The week began as we walked into this beautiful home on the ocean with a view that awoke us each day. Actually we were in the nook of the bay...on the water. In my opinion, much better than the ocean front homes. Our sweet host thought of everything to make us at home and comfortable. Our table that we created at each day set in front of this window. So perfect! We had a special visitor of a deer with her newborn twins...aren't they adorable? It was overcast that week, but it didn't keep us off the beach hunting for treasures. We had the beach to ourselves. How much more perfect can it be? A group of friends brought together by art...we all met at different art events and made friendships of a lifetime. We traveled the coastline of Washington, we ate lots of great food, shopped, made art, shared memories and made new memories. We came from different parts of the United States...New Mexico, Oklahoma, Washington an
