My Crafty Beginnings...

I just thought I would share a picture with you guys today to show you where my love for all things crafty started to really take shape. I always loved arts and crafts as a kid, you name it...I tried it. I really loved to color, actually I still do :)

Then when I was 11 years old I started taking oil painting lessons from the lady who lived across the street from us. I don't paint anymore, but sometimes I miss it.

This is a picture of the 1st painting I ever did. I was either 11 or 12 at the time, I'm not sure what month I did this. It doesn't currently hang in my house, sadly the frame got water damage on it during a move and I just have never had it re-done.
I hope you enjoy seeing where my true creativity started.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!


  1. WOW Christina cannot believe you were only that age when you did this, Amazing.
    I learnt to watercolour paint about 25 years ago and use to love it, don't have time now, sadly. One of the first pictures I ever painted was an old water pump in a garden with chickens and flowers and a kitchen wall~~I did this for my Mother in Law and she still has it up in her spare room!!
    Well done, Debbiexx
