Well,Oddie, I don't know how you can not call yourself a painter! That is just adorable! Looks like whatever methods you are using are working! ha Perfect pattern for that. And like Luvs said, great way to store some Christmas things when the season is over! Glad you gave it a try! It's great! :) ~Anj

I have a red one also but cant seem to find anything I like to paint on it, any ideas? I to love the idea luvs had for useing it for decorations, would be a good selling point for them also.

Oddie, Somehow I had missed your post here, but had found the one on Crafts. Like I said, I just helped with some tips so the paint would go on well, you did the creative part! And you really did it well. Looks just as cute as can be! ;o)

I am still amazed at how quickly you got it painted. Couldn't believe it when Anj told me you were all done already! Good for you. You must have had fun doing it.

Will certainly look forward to more of your painted projects.

Oddie, why not paint some evergreens with lots of snow, or a Christmas tree with some pretty handpainted ornaments? Maybe a polar bear skiing??

The first thing that popped into my mind when you said red was poinsettias, like just with a white frosty outline with the red showing thru. Now mind you, I can only see that in my mind and could never translate it without a pattern, but with your drawing talent you could probably do it up perfect. :) I'm sure you'll come across just the right thing and it will click for you. And don't disappoint us! We want a pic! We are pushy that way! ha ~Anj

He is so cute! You did a great job. And you don't think of yourself as a painter?? Seems to me you are right up there with the rest of us. The red suitcase sounds really interesting. Please post a pic when you get it finished.
