I Heart art ;)

I participated in my first swap :) So much fun! Cannot wait to see what I get in exchange. It was for valentines day "candy" for art/ scrapbooking on the MPTS art forum. My contribution was altered and waxed little hearts in 5 themed sets 1. French and lace 2. sugar and icing 3.nature hearts and soul4. tattered gypsy heart strings, and 5. vintage butter and cream . These are similar to the tags that I have made in the past. Have I mentioned bee-fore (teehee) how I LOVE bees-wax!! I am addicted and will cover any and every art piece with it!

a moment to create

Taking a few moments to create. Yes, I have many, many, many tasks I could have done, but for a bit of time, this morning I created art. And I am happier for it.

Home to breathe

I am so pleased to be part of the design team for the Creative paper artists (CPA) blog and CPA art forum.
It keeps me creating...even in the midst of the busiest holiday season ever! 2 jobs, 5 kiddos, and soooo much to do! BUT it is January now, and time to slow down and breathe. That should be everyone's new year resolution after the holidays...sloooow down and breeeeeathe :)

Well, the theme for the CPA challenge was new year resolutions. materials,- chipboard and acrylic paint, and the technique- torn paper.

My artitstic take on this challenge is a simple set of magnets of torn vintage wallpaper with my favorite theme of HOME.
My thoughts this new year are of home and my family, my hope and prayer is to spend more time here...and a little less out there :)

Please stop by our blog and see all the creative takes on resolutions!!
