Home Sweet Home Challenge Winner!

Once again, our wonder Faith Sisters member, JackieAnn, does a great job with her weekly challenge!

JackieAnn says:
I tried to make this look like one of those old fashioned cross stitch samplers. I just love the minute details my mom’s friend MaryHelen added to the painting. She put my Tbird in the driveway which reminds me of my dad and the Tbird he drove when I was little. And if you look really close you can see a couple of my gnomes peeking out =)

JOURNALING:
MaryHelen painted a picture of my childhood home for me for Christmas last year and I liked it sooo much I asked her to paint one of our current home. So I sent off some photographs and this beautiful watercolor painting arrived in our mail the day before we had to evacuate from the fires. It was actually one of the first things I grabbed on the way out the door. I figured if our house burned down I would have an artists rendering of what it looked like and made it a home.

See JackieAnn's gallery here and find out more about her on her blog.
