DIY Natural Woodland Birdhouse holiday gift idea

Here I have a bird house with glued sticks and bark. The process took about an hour, and I believe used almost four glue sticks to piece together all the materials I collected from outside. This is going to my grandmother for a holiday gift. She actually asked for a birdhouse--little does she know I didn't just go buy one. Although I did buy the "house" to glue the pieces to; but all the wood I collected from the yard.

This is a perfect craft for kids or anyone that loves crafts in general, including bird watchers/enthusiasts.

Cardinals in the Fall Pines by CK

I painted this landscape of birch, ornamental pear, cardinals a while back. I love the combination of colors--honestly, I don't think I'm going to sell or gift this painting...I'm going to keep it for myself.

Holiday gift painting "Backyard flower garden" by CK

Hey, everyone. I'm still making holiday gifts. This painting isn't really a gift I'm personally giving, but I'm getting paid to make this for someone else to give as a gift.
I made another painting which I will show you in my next post. Of course, you can always look at all my paintings at my Deviantart and tumblr pages.

Holiday DIY card craft ideas with old buttons

these buttons are older than me & I wanted to use them since my papaw found these in his shed

I repurposed the buttons to make holiday cards for family

using glue dots "zots" the buttons will stick to the card

decorate the buttons in all sorts of ways
I made the buttons as ornaments or as wreaths, and there are more ideas for button card ideas on pinterest. Go to my previous post to see other holiday craft ideas I have been doing. I will be making arts and crafts throughout the season, so I will keep you posted.

Making Deco Mesh Wreaths for the holidays (gift ideas)

The first picture is a foam tree decorated with buttons held by sewing pins. I found this craft on Pinterest as a holiday activity to decorate with or gift. I also used pinterest to get ideas for the wreaths as well.
Over the last couple of days I have made five wreaths that I wanted to show you. Some of these I will be giving away as gifts for family members. I am keeping the wreath I am holding in the picture, and the last one I am donating for a charity auction.

Some interesting drawings of characters, scenes, & still life from 2013-2015

I was looking through some of my sketch books from 2013 and 2014, and I wanted to share some of the drawings I found. I know I have posted probably all of these drawings on here or on my deviantart page, but these drawings stood out to me the most. One particularly stood out to me of the drawings of Trailer Park Boys TV Show characters because this week one of the people died. The drawing of an old man's head in this picture, known as Jim Lahey, has passed.

Two more Fall halloween Paintings by Cassie Kinney

Here are additional paintings I've done this week. There are similar elements in the two paintings, with the witchy house, fall plants, and bats. The first painting has pathway leading to a house lined with birch trees of yellowing leaves. There are pumpkins, cushaws, mums. The second painting has a creek flowing past a house in the forest, washing through big rocks and plants.

Halloween scene with pumpkins, gourds, scarecrow decor

I took my grandma to see mums, pumpkins, and gourds, so we bought some things and I put this scene together for my grandmother.

Two Fall Autumn Witchy Garden shed acrylic paintings (FOR SALE)

I started painting again as you may have noticed. The painting I posted on here the other day of the pumpkins was sold on ebay. I'm a little frustrated because I want to be able to sale art, and in doing so you have to cheapen your worth (value). I learned my lesson though selling on ebay because of the cost of shipping with paintings is pricey! I sold that painting with free shipping and it ended up costing the exact amount that I sold for the painting. I actually went in the hole with the painting when factoring in that I had to drive over 15 miles to get to a post office!

So I hope you understand why I am selling the paintings at the price I am on ebay. Two paintings that I am showing you down below are also for sale on ebay. Go to my account and view all the paintings I am selling here: My ebay store.

The sign on the door of the shed says 'welcome'

Hisbiscus floral photography + fall pumpkin scarecrow scene setting

I usually take pictures of my grandma's Hibiscus flowers, but I got a start off one of her Hibiscus plants that broke off, and within a couple of months it has already flowered.

And you know by now that I love sunsets, and I got to take a picture of beautiful pink and purple skies.

Here is the fall scene I rearranged as well. I continue to add more stuff to the fall scene. Soon it will become a Halloween scene come October.
