I'm Moving

Not me, my blog. After a few weeks of debating I have decided to move onto another blog, Altered Life. I hope you will join me there. This will be about everything, my family, painting, up-cycling, roller derby experience. So it will not only be about my signs and painting. I may come back and update Signs of Obsession from time to time, it is just time to make a change as my life is always altering. I want to thanks everyone who has followed my blog and left me wonderful comments I appreciate every one of you. Please find me HERE

CNY Roller Derby

I know I have been MIA for what seems like forever! Now that I have downsized my space at The Shops at 25 West I find myself getting things cleaned and organized. Spring cleaning if you will. I have a few custom things I am working on so I shall have some pictures soon. I have mentioned before my desire to try Roller Derby. For the last month or so I have been going to the open skate on Friday nights. So far I am loving it, granted we are only skating so far but I love watching everyone run their drills. I can't wait to try it out! In case your local and interested you can visit the website HERE. Spring Classes start April 6th. I can't wait!

reclaimed art

I came up with this the other day. I decided to use all the things I like. Old picture frames, keys, black and white paper and of course paint.I wanted something in the background so some swirls worked perfect
scrap paper birdie and a found key

This was fun and relaxing to make. This one is mine, I made it personal to me, including the number 5, but I may make others to sell

Chicks ALong the Canal

We had our first meeting of the year to start planning the second annual chicks show. We have big plans for this years show, you don't want to miss out! Visit our website to get an application to be a vendor or just watch for all the great vendors and entertainment we plan on having. Here we all are brain storming.

Well my move is finally complete. Had a HUGE sale sold most of my inventory (yeah, didn't have to move it.) Here is my new space. A big empty canvas. Some old doors fill the wall space nicely. So even is the items on top are sold it will still be nice to look at.
Some old book pages papered on the wall and of course a chandelier. I think it looks great. This should be easier for me to keep up with.

So now that the move is complete I should have a bit more time for my sad neglected blog.

Table Runner

I had all theses dollies (snowflakes) left over from my elevator display. I figured I should put them to good use. My friend Barbara (whose picture was in this previous post) stitched them all together to make a great runner for my table. I love it!

Twin Topiaries

I originally painted one of these topiaries.(sp) Nothing written on it and no scrolls. One of my very best and sweetest customers wanted something to put her girls info on. She liked to topiary and wanted a second one and scrolls painted in the background. A very good choice indeed, it looks wonderful!
