Out in the Prairie where the wildflowers grow and the song of the birds like melody flows, there's a peace God bestows that brings joy to the soul...

Happy Wednesday Friends

The top collage is done by a sheer accident, It started out that I spilled some pink paint and just spread it on this old book cover and set it aside for a valentine's collage. WELL!!! Low and behold to me it ended up like this?? have no idea where that thought came from, but it turned out to be favorite piece. I guess you just never know whats going to inspire a person till you pick up that paint brush.

The second collage was done on purpose. It turned out really soft looking and so lovely for Valentine's day.
   Happy creating to all.
Blessings, Carol Mae

I can't believe how wonderful this blogging world has become for me. I have so many new friends out there that are just so sweet and thoughtful.

One friend that I want to send a special thank you to is KYMBERLY  She has sent me so many lovely Silhouettes to use in my art work.  She did the art work above and sent me a copy. I can't thank her enough.
Also she lives near the Smoky Mt's which is so beautiful and I plan on vacationing out there soon.

Hopefully I'll be able to have a small visit with her. Can you believe it!!!! what a wonderful world this can be.
Have a great day my friends,
 Carol Mae

Shoppe Disabled

I'm sorry to say I have closed my Olde Prairie Shoppe for the time being. I may start up a new one this spring. Thanks to all who have visited my Shoppe. May the future bring new beginings for me. I still have my Etsy shop and loving it.

Hugs, Carol Mae


A new piece of Valentine art. Wall hanging done on an old piece of peg-board
Now in my Etsy Shop.


WOW!!! Feeling much better now, thanks to some dear blogging friends and a treasure hunt around town. LOOK WHAT I FOUND some really neat items in our little town, I especially love the bird cupboard-so many ideas in my head.

A fine weekend to everyone. Smiles, Carol Mae

Well, I guess I need a wake up call of somekind? My art projects just don't seem to move on Etsy or my own shoppe. I will go out to local shops today and see if I can light a spark anywhere. Or am I just feeling down? Whatever the problem is I need to snap out of it. I love doing art works of all kinds and so what to share my art, besides giving it all away. NOW I GUESS I NEED A KICK IN THE REAR!! Ha Ha. Ok, I've unloaded enough.
It is a good day and I must be thankful for everything. A few prayers are in order here.
Happy Wed to all. Love, Carol Mae

A short getaway

Got a little burned out over Christmas and New Years so we took a little Trip to a Casino. Didn't win much, but sure had fun trying and the food was great. Back home now and got my Studio in order, which feels really good.
I won a giveaway from Janee at blinkleblinkle.blogspot.com A wonderful Valentines Day package with all kinds of art pieces to create with. HERE is a Framed 8x10 Valentine Collage I did with some of my pieces I received from her. "thank you so much Janee"
A Good weekend to all, Hugs, Carol Mae

New Shoppe Item

Great sunday morning to everyone, a sunny crisp day here in Wisconsin, at least the sun is out.
 We get to spend our Sunday morning without water!! A water main broke and they said our water would be off about 4 hours. At least we were told ahead of time, so it makes it much easier to deal with. Here's a new item for my Shoppe, It turned out really cute.
Blessings to all, Carol Mae

Valentine Fever

The urge to do Valentine Art hit me. This Valentine wreath turned out nice. The little wall hanging will fit in a nice little corner. Will be listing these on Etsy soon.

We are getting hit with another winter storm, this time they are predicting 7-11 inches of new snow.
Maybe thats why I hiding out in my Studio "ha Ha". Winter white is so pretty though.

Good day to all. Smiles, Carol Mae

A little bit of new art work

A new Nautical Shadow box/Assemblage

Creating new Shoppe

I've been away for a few days trying to set up my own shoppe, I think I have it almost finished. Just have to check a few things with Paypal to make sure it's going to work.
This is a little trial and error for me as I'm not a computer geek.
I should have my Shoppe up and working by later today.
Hope everyone has a great Monday.
Smiles, Carol Mae
