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.

Art Filled Weekend for me

I gotta get my art on this weekend...

A little teaser...

I've been asked to do some designs for one of our 3 booths for Chicago CHA...I'm really excited for the opportunity and the exposure. Hoping to end up designing something for each booth...I mean c'mon....7 Gypsies...Canvas Corp., Tattered Angels...all amazing products and endless inspiration to be working with....

I plan on incorporating some of Nancy Baumillers work that I got over at the awesome deviantscrap.com and Crowabout Studio's...

Now to make the magic happen..

1 more ATC

LOL...My girlfriend Kathryn is so funny...she always makes me laugh...when she saw my posts on Facebook showing my ATC's she said she would love one that said...But What if I Can't Find My Big Girl Panties...she saw that quote on Pinterest, so I got my goodies out again and made an ATC that I am going to take to her at work tomorrow...

I LOVE how it came out...and the girl on the ATC kinda looks like her so it's even funnier...

Thanks again to the amazing Nancy Baumiller and Crowabout StudioB over at Deviantscrap.com for the downloads...I love them TONZ.

MAKE TIME FOR ART

So happy to be in a house, with my own room for all of my artsy goodness supplies...
I still have a lot to do, shelves need to be put up and peg board hung...it will happen though.

In the meantime I have all of my favorite things within reach and I am loving being able to do my art again in my own space...

Also loving that we have a printer now that is GREAT and I was finally able to download some awesome printables over at deviantscrap.com and I LOVE them...the possibilities are endless...

Last weekend I made the love notes envelope out of half of an old inter office envelope I had hanging around. I decided to put the other half to good use and completely altered it...

I am using it for the cutouts from my printables and it is going to work out FaBuLoUs...
I used corrugated cardboard, acrylic paints, glimmer mists, glimmer chalkboard, white paint pen, inks...lots of stuff...

Here it is.......
I love how it turned out and it will remain out on my art desk every day...it is full of yummie-ness and wonderful art just waiting to be used on layouts, in my art journal, for ATC's...like I said...the possibilities are endless...

Definitely head over to deviantscrap.com and check out all of their digital and printable art...its really is amazing.

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a FaBuLoUs EVERYTHING...and don't forget to MAKE ART EVERY DAY!!!!
