Here I Am!

Wow, I have been away from blog world for quite a long time now. Honestly, I even stopped reading other blogs just because I can't keep up with all the inspiration that strikes from seeing other crafty blogs. Life is always crazy. Keeping up with Rebecca, who just turned 5, and Katherine, my spunky 2 year old, is always a challenge, not to mention work and keeping up with household chores. And life is only going to get more hectic with the holidays, but I love holiday hectic! Among other things, I love the chance to be creative and make gifts for family and friends. My mind is racing with more ideas than I have time for, but at least during the holidays I make a greater effort to get in my craft room and CREATE! I have completed a few cool projects lately and have more on the horizon.

I just created a painting for my friend, Susan. It's my biggest project ever, 2ftx3ft. She wanted something special to hang over her fireplace and I am so honored she thought of me. It was quite different for me to do. Much more artsy than things I've done in the past, but it was a lot of fun and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I'm still working through how unpredictable the end point is when I am creating "art." I always have a different image in my head.

I was also asked to make another Christmas BELIEVE Word Art. It took a while, but I finally did it and I think it turned out just as great as the original (which I will never sell, because I LOVE it!). It's now on it's way to England and I can't be more excited. It's fun to know my art is finding homes all over the world.

I have other fun projects in mind for family gifts which I'll share as I get them completed. I'm also working on some holiday word art to sell in a local scrapbook store, Green Tangerines. They just started devoting a portion of their store to a Handmade Headquarters that I am fortunate to be participating in. SO hopefully I'll have more to share soon, rather than months from now.
