Crazy, crazy, crazy week.  Some good crazy. Some necessary crazy. And some completely useless crazy. A normal week.  But I hadn’t had enough art and paint time so it felt so much crazier.  Thankfully, I made it to the studio to play! Of course, I should have been working on the new workshop or the [...]

[DISPLAY_ACURAX_ICONS theme=”19″ size=”55″ function=”1″ animation=”bounce” opacity=”0.8″] Why did I need to be forgiven for my “French”- this car!  I saw it at an art fair and it blew my mind. There were several expletives I just couldn’t hold in.  The details and toys on this car- the more I looked the more I saw!    [...]

June’s Colorful Gelli Print Party is here!  Not just one video this month but TWO!  I couldn’t stop playing (and I didn’t want to).  A mega thanks to everyone who shared their Gelli fun with the May party!   I am inspired by all the prints and projects.  June’s party will be open all month- love [...]

The sun is shining, the grass is green, and the peonies will be blooming any day now!  In honor of spring, I am working in greens.  I usually work in a full rainbow of colors so I wasn’t sure how this would turn out…   A background made long ago that sparked the green theme. [...]

I used to fight making mistakes.  Pointing out all my imperfections to myself with a strong dose of harsh judgement.  No shocker that being creative often ended in frustration for me back then.  But it doesn’t any more.  Why?  I just say Oops. This is a random mess of a page. I was using up [...]

Sifting through a drawer I bumped into my bingo cards. My precious, must save, can’t bear to use, bingo cards.  The words on 1 really caught my attention- 12 different ways to win on every card. Just like life, there are always lots of ways to “win”.     My old ledger colored randomly from [...]

Venice holds a special place in my heart.  It is one of the most romantic and history filled places I have ever traveled to.  It has been several years since I have been there and I am missing Venice. So, I wrote Venice a love letter. Clear glass beads over painted text.   I have had [...]

What do mermaids learn in school?  Sure swimming is an important class for them, but mermaids need to learn to read too.   Getting lost in a good book is one of life’s pleasures and I would hate to deny a mermaid that joy…Would mermaids read One Fish, Two Fish by Dr. Seuss or 20,000 [...]

I never who will show up when I get my paintbrush out…especially when I am in a fabulous mood!   This is a cheap cheap cheap spiral notebook that I used to clean a couple of paintbrushes.  I hate to waste paint so I will use extra paint on just about anything I can find. [...]

This week has flown by!  Can’t believe this is the last day of the party! Thank you to every party goer for helping me kick off 2013!  It is going to be an amazing year full of color and creativity!   In all the excitement I had neglected my rubber stamps so I brought them to [...]
