About Me

My photo

I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a best friend a daughter, and artist.

If there was a way I could spend as much time in my studio creating as I do working my regular 40 hour job I would do it in a heartbeat. I am loving discovering myself through art and I can't wait to see where the journey takes me.


Graffitti Journal

Ok...Happy Sunday.

This is why I call my hand made journals a Graffitti Journal. Make it uniquely yours by filling it with all the things you want to keep but don't know where to keep them. Draw in it, write in it, doodle in it. Staple pictures and things in, tape them in, paper clip and glue them in.. The spiral binding allows for a lot of room to expand. The more you fill it the chunkier and more awesome it will be.

They will all soon be for sale. Details soon to follow

Thanks for taking a look


Sneak Peak

Happy Wednesday.

These are some of the pages I have been working on for the junquie journals I am going to be putting together.
I have all the main sewing done so now it's all in the details.

Im going shopping tomorrow for some organza and other shabby fabric...hehe.

These are just some of the pages I have been working on. Every page is framed in stitching and there are other elements on each page. Everything is sewn on. Nothing glued. No two pages are the same.
These pages will be combined into beautiful journals to hold all of lifes daily junquie tidbitz.

Hoping to have a few available for purchase by the end of the weekend.
Thanks for taking a look.


Working away

Well I have done some work in my 3 hearts journal...also in my other art journal. I haven't been feeling very inspired the past few days enough to paint.

I have so much scrapbook paper so I got out my sewing machine and I have been sewing since Saturday.

I have a major project in the works. Trying to figure out how I can recycle some of this stuff and use it to make some awesomeness that I can sell for some extra money since the job market seems to be eluding me.

I am seriously looking into the bind it all. Then to market I will go. hehe...

Looking forward to sharing the finished products. In the meantime I will try to get inspired to get back into my art journaling while I take some sewing breaks.

Hope you are staying Inspired.

Today has just been...I think maybe depressing....
Took my daughter to the airport yesterday to fly out for most of the summer. I wont see her again until the end of July.
Have not seen my son since December.
The whole job situation.
Maybe this is all finally catching up with me...
Gotta pull up my big girl panties and just find a way to deal with it.
Maybe I'll work in my journal tomorrow...
