Monday PAFA Merchant Circle * Handmade ARTFAIR * And a Birthday in the HOUSE

It is Monday again and time for Monday Merchant Circle
with the PAFA etsy team
This week I would love to introduce you to Barb

I Have two of Barb's Barnwood Pictures in my Kitchen
Yes of Chickens one being this one and let me
tell you the picture does not do it justice

In Barb's Words
Heartstrokes is her name because she was an Intensive Care Cardiac
Nurse and was learning to paint
Between jobs and learning it was a challenge
I have been painting for 15 years
My husband was in the Air Force and deployed so I took classes
at a local craft store and fell in love 
It has now become my Therapy
I have been selling on Etsy for Two years and still do local
crafts shows In utah and sometimes in Las Vegas
You can find Barb at the following links

This month on Handmade Art fair
You can check that link daily to see new items posted
by the members

And Yes there is a Birthday in the House
Now we are not sure what day because the  Breeder did not
write the date down so we Celebrate all Month long

Happy Birthday to
Miss Shelby

See I told you I would spend far too much time on
this Picture Program LOL
Miss Shelby is Two Years Old this month

Wishing you all a Wonderful Week 
mine is packed full of Work so I may be MIA
