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.

My favorite quote

Ok...finished the graffiti stack...I am keeping the below card for myself...I love all of them, it's so great that no two are alike. I think that is what has be so drawn to doing these. This quote though, rings so true with me, and different things I have been through. I love it.

Hoping to start on another stack this afternoon. I think I am going to do a butterfly stack. I found a whole bunch of butterfly quotes and I soo love butterflies.

Have a FaBuLoUs Day...and make some art...it's good for you

Halloween Project

I decided to take a break from my inspiration stacks today.
I love Halloween so much, and I haven't really gotten my stuff out yet this year...that will entail digging through the tubs in the garage to find all my holiday goodiez since the move.

I am going to try to tackle that tomorrow. Today I decided to work on something new for decoration.

I haven't done one of my "girls" for awhile so decided to go in that direction. She is still a work in progress, but she is coming along really cool. Her hat and her hair and her skirt are so dimensional. I am going to add a broom to her right hand tomorrow and maybe some pumpkins along the bottom. I'm also going to go to the dollar store and get some plastic spiders to glitter up and put in her hair and on her hat band.

I cute her out and glued her to a 12x12 piece of scrapbook paper before I added her hair. Fun stuff.

Here she is so far...haven't named her yet...
Thanks for stopping by.

Graphitti Inspiration Stack

I started this stack yesterday...My intention was to make a pink stack and layer with mostly black and white...I did not like how the pink looked AT ALL...I used 5 different shades but the color just looked dull...
I got out some of my mists and just started spraying...I needed to do something to change them up quickly without having to repaint them all and this really worked...
Tonight I got out my stencils and some paint and started layering. I love the direction this took the stack in. I really like how the black made them look graphitti. I am in the process of adding washi tape and some shading around the edges.
Here is where I am at this point.
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look

Another card stack finished.

Well, I got laid off again last week, so I have had a lot of time to do art...I'm working on a few things but I finished another Inspiration Card Deck last night. I am going to start another one today. I just love doing them. Gotta get my deck sent to Jessica Brogan for the swap when I go to the post office tomorrow.
I cannot wait to get my swap deck back with beautiful cards from artists all over the world.


Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
