Shopping instead of creating


Ok...so today I was supposed to do some creative stuff. But...I decided to take it easy and then I took my daughter over to her boyfriends house and then went shopping. I bought the cutest wallet! So I had to did out my pink purse tonight and move all my stuff over. I love it! Now I will need to create new binder inserts for my day planner so that it can match. Well....kinda match. I will take a picture of it when I am done and put it on here. I really need to start working on my "doodad" for Art & Soul. I only have about a month to finish all my trades and this project! I am such a procrastinator!

Twinkling H20's

I just love my Twinkling H20's. Like I said before, I like sparkly things. Here are a couple of ATC's I painted. I am still trying to find my style. Do I have a style? Does it just come with time? With the amount of art you produce? I guess I will find out....sometime....

My cleaned up Art Space

Ok I am pretty much done with my space. Here is the computer and business end of my room. I love Halloween stuff so it's out all year long. I still have a bit of decor to put out. I just haven't unpacked it yet. It's in the extra bedroom...waiting....and waiting....and waiting.... :)

This is where I keep the bulk of my supplies. I still have some more pegboard hooks and jars to get so it is not completely finished. But good enough for now.
Close up of my shelves. There is still more room for stuff!

This is my creative table. I have all my tools handy. More boxes up on the shelf! I still have to go through those and organize but that is another days project.

And finally, the view from my window...don't you just love desert brown?

That's all for now. I am going to create... I shall be posting new art work sometime this week. Stay posted!

Been Busy

I have been a busy bee, making my room organized! What a chore! I am pretty much done. I have to vacuum and then I shall take pictures. LOL. I tried doing some ATC's tonight but I just couldn't get the creativity going! It hasn't been used in awhile so I need to get the sludge out of my brain. So I will try again tomorrow night.


I bought these earrings by Tracy Roos. Aren't they cute! I can't wait to see them in person. She is one of my favorite artists. I didn't know she was making jewelry until I read her blog and went to her Etsy site. I shall be keeping an eye there for more cute things!

New Car


I bought a new car last night! I haven't bought one since 1998. I love it! It is the Dodge Avenger. All the bells and whistles...

ATC's

Thought I would share some of my past ATC's so you can get a feel for my art.
Here they are:

My very first ATC's...


Sewing Themed Trade:



Circus Trade:


More Stuff

You would think that I would stop buying stuff until I organized my room...BUT NOOOOO that is not me! LOL I just got my order of Glimmer Mist, a new product I found, and I just love it! I can't wait to start using it. I guess I am drawn to glimmering things! I seem to buy lots of those kinds of products. So...on the shelf they got crammed until my organizing is done. All my supplies are screaming to me...use me....I am lonely! I did spend a few minutes today, rearranging my room. It just seems so overwhelming until I start then I get on a roll and it feels to good to see space on my table again. Yeah! So...this weekend is "D" day. Gotta get going on my trades for Art & Soul...

Getting Organized

Ok...so I thought I would share pictures of my work space. I should call it my studio, but I haven't quite gotten there yet. I have moved 3 times in the last year and a half ---long story, don't ask--- so I am finally getting settled down. It's a mess right now and I need to get it organized so I can start working on my art again. I am going to Art & Soul this May and need to start making my trades! So...watch my progress..

This is my Computer area. I am still unpacking stuff. I had forgotten how much "stuff" I had. It doesn't keep me from buying more though! :)

Here is my work area...remember...I am just starting to organize my room! My kitty is in the window.Here are some of my supplies. My daughter calls it the craft store...

I will be rearranging things because I have bought some more storage shelves.

First Blog!

My sister sent me a link of Misty Mawn's Blog. I fell in love with it. I have never done anything like this, but I am on a new journey in life. To experience new things and to follow my heart in what I want to do with my life. I envy all of the artist's that make a living doing what they love. So...I am starting my journey, to see if I can do it too. Who knows....may this will be the beginning of my life as a mixed media artist. All I know is that I am going to enjoy the ride.....
