Box of Sunshine

For this holiday season I am offering boxes of sunshine. What is a box of sunshine? It's a mystery! Is it hard to push the buy button when you are unsure of what is in it? If you have followed my art journey you will be a little less unsure, because if you love my stuff you will LOVE this box. I have only 14 left and will ship them out on Dec 12th. They are 7 x 7 boxes and I will say the box will be painted(all differently) as to what will be in them, well that's a surprise.

To purchase click here

Buy one for yourself and one for a friend!

DIY business labels

Silhouette is offering fun new products all the time and I always want what they offer…I was in Joann's fabric awhile back and this caught my eye…

 What could I do with this? I loved the patterns and I knew I would use it so I bought it. I sometimes will use bits of it in my mixed media paintings or I will use it on packaging…One afternoon as I was trying to figure out how to put my business info on the back of my greeting cards it came to me…print on this fun tape and voila a cute business label!! Cheap and effective!!

Here it is on the back of my greeting card

Now offering House portraits…

Most good ideas come from customers…they ask and I come up with it…I had a neighbor wanting a special gift for her soon to be husband and asked if I ever did house portraits…I hadn't but thought I could in my style so I said yes…I received lots of orders based on that one request…here is a sampling of them…please go to my etsy shop to order yours!

Summer camp 2014…elephants

My summer camp this year was for 1 week! I look back on past years and am impressed with my past self for doing 7 weeks…My Etsy store and Facebook page have both kept me so busy this year that honestly I couldn't see doing more…Although I loved it so much I added 2 fun friday camp days after it  was all done…I love hanging out with the girls…they are so fun and full of stories…plus they get so much joy from painting that it makes me happy…Here are some pictures…

 Chalk drawings!! We worked in teams to come up with something creative!

 Fun Elephant Sculptures! We had so much fun making these!!

Soul Food online class

So a few months ago I did an online teaching class for Soul Food. It was an amazing honor that they asked me to be a part of it…I had to do an online teaching class, which meant I needed to figure out how in the world to use iMovie and use my iPhone to video myself somewhat professionally!!! I am not going to lie, I felt I was a huge dork …my family never got to see it… But the class went live and I got good feedback, people were liking my class…adults!! Ha! Starting next week,  I am going to be doing lots more videos and am confident that I will get further and further away from sounding like a dork. Anyways here is a sample of some of my student's work…They were truly amazing..enjoy!

As you can see, my lesson was on Owls! They each took my lesson and made their owl their own.
