Hello blogging world!

I've been dreaming of updating my blog for quite some time now and getting back into the groove of it and to be honest with you... I've missed it! 

 We have been once again blasted with a dump of snow in Manitoba, so I took today as the day to update my blog and get back into the swing of things. 

Here's a little peek of what I've been working on in the past couple of weeks...

Bless the food before us,
the family beside us,
and the love between us.

Being part of The Baking Beauties with Jeanine quite a few years ago, was a lot of fun!  We shared a lot of laughs, some finger-licking good recipes, and even had the pleasure of meeting each other a few times as well.  Jeanine has really taken off in the blogging world, and has just recently published her own gluten free recipe book as well!
I decided it was time for me to devote my full time into Prairie Lane Boutique although Jeanine and I have stayed in touch through out the past couple years.
I hope that you'll follow me as I blog about my crazy life, my passion for baking, my dream of painting and creating, and my love for all things!

A beautiful way to remember someone that you love, but have lost.

I am always searching for new quotes/poems and lyrics and especially like to find some that I can turn into a beautiful piece that will be treasured for years to come!

I have been through 2 devestating losses in the past 11 years.  I lost my Dad suddenly just 3 months after I was married in 1998, he passed away from a massive heart attack while up in Northern MB moose hunting with his friends.  He was were he loved to be, doing what he loved to do. 

If that wasn't hard enough, I then lost my brother 5 years ago to suicide.  So many things left many questions, left unanswered. 

I miss them both dearly!  I love creating frames/plaques/wall art that we can treasure in memory of our loved ones.  I can easily create something custom in memory as well. 

My latest canvas frame is one of my favorite with a touching poem handpainted on it:
I won't shed tears because you are gone.
I will smile because you lived.
I will not remember only that you've gone.
I will cherish your memory and let it live on.
I won't cry and close my mind, ... See More
be empty and turn my back.
But I will do what you would want:
smile, open my eyes, love and go on.

One of my favorite websites

I LOVE quotes.  I am always searching for the perfect quote to paint on canvas, wood, frames, etc. 
I have lists of quotes stuck everywhere... my desk, my purse, a book, my pocket...everywhere!

While surfing online lastyear I came across a company called Compendium and I was blown away!  I literally spent hours on their website, looking at all their inspirational products, with one of my favorites being their window cards! 
■Cards “pop” open to reveal a message inside

■Cards measure 2 ¼” wide x 2 ¼” high
■Packed in slide-open gift box
■Box contains 30 unique cards
I have placed quite a few orders with them since.  I love sticking a window card in with every order I receive.  I hope my customers enjoy them as much as I do!

Compendium carries a wide variety of inspirational and uplifting products, including:
~notebooks, journals, greeting cards and so much more!

What is your favorite product from Compendium?

My waiting finally paid off this morning!

I have been patiently (ok...well, not so patiently) for my order of canvas to arrive.  10 days takes it's toll on a person, lol.

When my doorbell rang this morning I almost attacked my poor delivery guy!  He had the look of fear in his face, lol. 

As soon as he left, I tore into the boxes.. it was like Christmas all over again!  (except I paid for my gifts, lol).

I imagine that there will be a lot of paint throwing this afternoon, take a look at what I get to create with:

What you see here is only 1/2 of my order, in a variety of sizes.
