the new year...

with this new year i have decided to do things for me. being a wife & mother of 3 gives me very little time to do things for myself. so, i plan to do more art, more yoga & see more friends. it will be a challenge with my youngest playing travel softball but i know in order to be happy, i need to remember the things that i enjoy. so with that being said, here is a painting that i did for my co-worker. i think i am going to do a series of dog portraits. dogs with droopy jowls, saggy eyes and wrinkles are what i am after.  stay tuned...

a new layout!

it's been forever since i last made a scrapbook page. because i have been home sick with the flu, i have been checking out all of the new products at 2peas, and although i would love to by them, i cannot. you see, years ago i was scrapbooking daily. i was on a few design teams and had a few items published in magazines and books. my best friend owned an online scrapbook store. i always had the newest products. shopping for new supplies was almost as fun as using them. needless to say, my stash grew.

after my family and i had to move across country and move all of those supplies, i decided that i need to use up what i have. so, i did this layout of my son for 2 challenges. one at 2peas; to use a circle on a layout and the other for the february challenge at sketchbook 365. it felt good to scrap again and i actually did 2 other layouts that i will share later.

show and tell...

i am always amazed about how much time goes by between blog updates. it's not my attention to neglect it, life just seems to get in the way. i was hoping to at post at least once a week. even if it wasn't with my own art, i was planning on sharing art from others. well my intentions were good. i apologize for not following through.

recently, i have been working on some mixed media pieces as well as some new hazels. also, i have some exciting news! hazel is going to be a stamp that you can use in your own art/craft projects! i am really excited about this. also, hazel is going to be featured in the May/June issue of Cloth Paper Scissors! that too, is extremely exciting! is hazel finally on her way?

here are 2 new hazel's that are in my shop now.

also, i would like to share some other whimsical paintings that i did last weekend. i am loving the bright colors and the little houses.


happy new year to you all and i wish you the best in 2013!
