Hi friends!  I have a new rep company and showroom!  I am now with Susan & Company.  I met with the owner, Susan Kempenaar,  today along with one of my new reps, Marlene Coleman, who I know from years back.  They are "the shot in the arm" that my little company needs and I am thrilled to have them as my rep group!  Lots of positive energy! 
I've been busy designing new canvases.  Here are a few:


more to come and a larger 11"x 14" size too.

little bug camper

I was up north this weekend and saw one of those cute teeny tiny camper trailers in a car lot and  BOOM!  new canvas!


I had so much fun with my 4 grandchildren, watching them fish off the dock, being on the pontoon with them.  Lots of family members in a tiny cabin!  They're building a new one this fall - can't wait to visit then! We're going up late September for one more time in the old cabin.  It was built in 1934 and my sister-n-law and brother-in-law and family have had it for 30 years.  Many memories for them so it will be very bittersweet. 
 that's all for now,  XOXO lauriejeanne

Hi friends!  I'm sorry to say that I didn't make the top 50 entries. there were 1500 entries from all over the globe.  here are the ones who made it through.  

I feel a teeny bit let down, but no big deal.  maybe another opportunity will come right around the corner!  so long for now!  xoxo lauriejeanne

My mom and I enjoyed a morning out.  First we went to the Mpls Gift Mart where I brought 6 new designs (the other ones already posted, and these ones shown below).  Then we got some coffee, and went to a few gift shops, and then had lunch. Fun! 

Hopefully my fax will be overfilled with orders tomorrow!!!  The show goes on through Tuesday.  And then the next smaller show is October 5,6,7.  I'll just keep designing and making, making and designing..... 

Hope you enjoyed the day!  XOXO lauriejeanne
