Art Hop is tonight!

Well...I am in Colorado! Wow! It is beautiful out here and the little town of Monument is such a sweet little town! The town's Art Hop is tonight! I am really looking forward to it...a little nervous as well...but I know it will be great! The store that brought me here, The Love Shop is such a neat place as well! I love just about everything in it! I have lots of photos to share so far but will need to wait until I return to Orlando!

Wish me luck tonight!

First time in the real world...

Hi all! Sorry it has been so long since my last posting!!! I celebrated my birthday last Friday (5/15) and have been trying to get my act together and get back into create mode! I have my very first "meet and greet" Art event this Thursday night in Monument, Colorado! I will be the featured artist at an adorable store called "The Love Shop" in Monument, CO. I am a little nervous since I will have to go out there and actually mix and mingle with adults rather than my own kids (an 8 month old, a preschooler, a kindergartner and a second grader!) Wish me luck!!! Besides my art, I hope I have more to talk about than Dora and Scooby Doo!

I will certainly try and post again before I leave Orlando since I have a few photos to share of some recent creations!

Let's begin...

Okay I go...I want to finally officially introduce myself! I am the wife to a FABULOUSLY supportive husband, mom to four little girls (8,6,4 and almost 8months), mom to two Springer Spaniels named Friday and Jazz, sister to 4 (1 sister, 1 half sister, 2 step brothers) and creator of MANY things! I get bored mind starts to churn...and there I go again! I have been doing graphic design work for the last 8 years and decided to get more artsy about a year ago trying out different mediums here and there! Needless to say, I have been inspired ever since!

I really wanted to start posting everyday...just to be in touch with everyone...but then lets washer broke, then my dryer needed to be repaired, then a part for our freezer had to be ordered...then my Internet went down...lets see...could anything else go wrong??? Oh...I volunteered to create 51 magnets tonight for my daughter's is Teacher Appreciation Week. It is only 7:22pm at night...I've got plenty of time right?!?!?

Well - there is so much that I have created since I last posted. The problem is...I am not a very well organized artist. This past week and a half, I created several little inspirational pieces with one over sized one in the mix...they sold...and I have yet to get the prints up in my Etsy shop! Some day

Below are some samples of my most recent creations...

I just love the angel...

Adios for now! I will chat more with you soon! I have recently organized my studio a little more so I will be able to post those photos for you soon!
