Happy Easter everyone!!!!!!

Good morning everyone!
Tomorrow is Easter. I'll be doing the egg hunt with the kiddos and having a proper Easter dinner, so I figured I should wish you all a Happy Easter now hahaha :-)
I have been working on some French pastries and cakes and cookies lately and darn it! I just cant seem to work fast enough to please myself lol. I was hoping to have triple the amount of food I have made by now but, for some reason inspiration is kind of escaping me at the moment......I have ideas...I have a little bit of time to make them...but getting the two things together is proving kind of hard at the moment.
I did manage to make these however :-)
I got my cafe counter and cake stands painted.....

I made a few pastries and cookies for the display........

These items arent listed in my Etsy shop yet, but if you are interested in any of them or something custom, PLEASE FEEL FREE to contact me via Facebook or by clicking on "contact" in my Etsy shop.
I am working with some red strawberry glaze today :-D hoping to get a few pastries and cakes made with it!

I hope you all have lovely Easters! <3 <3 <3 <3

Life is too short to live for others

 Good morning friends and fans!
The last week has been full of lifes lessons for me. I learned a lot and gained much too and most importantly I helped others feel good about themselves too.

 Life is too short to live by another person's rules. Life is meant to be experienced and learned and everybody has a right to do as they please, as long it doesn't harm others, without fear of back lash for it.

I have decided to live life for myself and my kids and loved ones and no one else.


I also uploaded some new pictures of my newest works! Ive been making food and plates lately. I REALLY enjoy hand painting them! Tiny painting is so fun!! I also made some broccoli and salads and am going to be working on some French cookies and pastries.
I am going to be going back to work within a few weeks and its a full time job so I wont have much time for minis during the concert season. I will check in when I can and say hi here and there but my job will be first on my list :-)
I am hoping to get a large enough inventory to stock my Etsy while Im gone. I dont have much in there right now, but soon I will be stocking my shop up so keep checking back in and see what goodies I've listed!

Here's a list of all the things I'm working on in my workshop:
  • Dark Shabby Collection
  • Seaside Kitchen Collection
  • Hand Painted Plates, Tea Sets and Decorative Ceramics
  • French Cookies and Pastries
  • Fresh Salad Sets and Mixes
  • Ice Cold Lemonades and Juices
  • Fresh Fruits and Vegetables 
Phew! Lol :-)
I always have more than one project going on....I'm like a little hummingbird, I just cant sit still for a moment and do JUST ONE thing lol. I also always try to have a variety of things in my shop. I dont like doing just one item or specializing in one particular thing. I like to be all over and everywhere and do what fits my mood at that time. Right now, Im feeling "spring-y" lol. Its finally beginning to get warm where I'm at (California) and it makes me so happy! I really dislike being cold and frozen all the time and having to bundle up and wear all those layers. When Im cold, I cant do anything but huddle up in a ball and shiver lol.
Heres a couple pics to show what Ive been up to lately, hope you all have a fabulous Friday and an amazing weekend!!
The plates before I painted them and a little food ;)

About a month or so ago, I had a contest on my fan page, *Misunderheard Art*, for a giveaway once I reached 500 likes. The winner was chosen by's random number generator. After some emails back and forth, we decided on a turkey platter for her. This is a 1:12 scale sized roasted turkey with dressing and a plate of the turkey, dressing, and mashed potatoes. Both pieces were sent to her. 
In addition to doing this, Ive been working really hard on my new collections. Heres a few pics:
