There are many recipes, patterns, and a multitude of other things to make our homes cosy and welcoming. This is my cosy corner of good things to eat and other "creature comforts"; things just to make our families, and ourselves, feel good.
I was aiming for sunbeams by the creek. Kevin Hill dors a great tutorial on youtube as to how to do it and while the picture did not turn out like I had pictured in my mind it still pleases me. The water looks more like a path but that is ok to, I guess. It still amazes me that I can do this well.
So if you would like to paint give it a try. There are dozens of free tutorials to follow. I enjoy the ones by Len Hend as well. He too explains how to very well.
