Hello! After cutting and drying the bounty of branches in our back yard for the last several months, I have been having a lot of fun painting the resulting wood slices. Having a basically unlimited number of tiny "canvases" at my disposal has really allowed me the freedom and permission to just pick up a brush and paint whatever design comes to mind. Since they are so small, it's been easy to do a few in a single sitting, as I have time.
Here are a few of the most recent I've posted for sale in the shop:
Heart Wood Slice Ornament – nordic-inspired, in red, white, and light blue.
Ghost with Spider Wood Slice Ornament – a friendly little ghost with a dangling spider, against a pumpkin-orange background.
Hello Wood Slice Ornament – "hello" has been one of my more popular signs, here it is in an ornament, in a coral, aqua, and cream color palette.
Purple Halloween Monster Wood Slice Ornament – inspired by the purple people eater! 🙂
I have a whole stack of these next to me still ready to go, I'll share as soon as I get them online. All the designs are free-hand, right out of my head, so they are one-of-a-kind! Let me know if you have any special requests, I love to hear your creative ideas. 🙂
Just a friendly reminder to myself – sharing in case you need it too! 🙂
Christmastime is a feast for the senses. I love the myriad of colors, lights, shapes, textures, and themes that dazzle and delight everywhere I go. I’m 29 years old and I have yet to tire of it all.

Ho Ho Ho!
We have so many different styles and themes in the store. This is my third Christmas as owner of The Weed Patch, and I have to remind myself that there will be many more Christmases to come, and many more fabulous shapes, colors, characters, textures, themes, and styles to come, so I try very hard to limit myself to my favorites. Sometimes I actually succeed…
I have opened a store on Etsy!
I’m leaving for our family reunion, so will not be posting for a couple of days – enjoy your weekend!

I have just uploaded a bunch of handmade greeting cards onto my site, be sure to check them out in the gallery! Handmade greeting cards are how I started out in the paper arts world, as I discovered all sorts of stamping, punching, embossing, and embellishing techniques. All are handmade by me and are not prints or photocopies – in many cases, my cards are hand-colored using watercolors or colored pencil. Available in a multitude of categories, including Birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day, Thank You, Just Because, and Easter to name a few – more will be added as time goes by. Currently none are up for sale, but I plan to put some up for sale soon with the average price per card in the $3 to $5 range. If you see one you must have desperately and cannot wait for me to get my act together, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can make arrangements. You may also contact me if you have any questions about techniques I used, although while I’m happy to share my tools and tips, you may not copy my designs. Eventually, each card will have a description that gives credit back to the designer of the stamps I used. Hope you like them!
