29 Faces Challenge

posted in: Creativity | 8

Day One! ^_^ I wanted to give this challenge a go. Before I go on I would just like to point out that I am fully aware that anything requiring me to do something “every day” is almost certainly never going to actually happen “every day”. I am not a routines and scheduling kind of girl. For me, it’s all about spontaneity and disorganization, although I do try to be more organized, it’s just that I fail at it. Anyhoo, … Read More

Just a quickie..

The flu has finally flown off! I am so happy about this! The kids had a half day today so I was able to get to work sooner than expected and have been busting tail to finish off a custom order so I can get to updating all my sites *whew* Really quickly, I want to share two new digi stamps I’ve added to my shop at Etsy. And I wanted to mention that my birthday is Monday and for the … Read More

Works in Progress

posted in: Creativity | 4

As I wait again for the children’s bedtime to come around I thought I would scan some of the drawings I’ve made so far in for work later in Illustrator (and to share with you ^_^) I don’t go too crazy nitpicking things in my sketches since I will pull them into Illustrator for the final renditions anyway. This is why there will be the occasional off-eye or funky mouth hehe. My Homies Gnomies hehe A balloon for you! Blessed Imbolc! … Read More

I’m sick,

posted in: Creativity | 6

And I feel just awful. I guess it’s the flu. My throat is horrible sore, I’m congested, feverish and walking 3 feet feels like climbing a mountain. Oh it’s a nasty one alright. I wouldn’t even be out here right now except that if I am not out here when bedtime for the kids rolls around they will stay up all night and I’ll have school admins calling me first thing in the morning expecting me to come retrieve my … Read More

Art haul =)

posted in: Creativity, Randomness | 6

I like seeing what other people use to make stuff. Particularly beauty blogs because I never see hauls on art blogs 🙁 Maybe we can start a trend?? Sometimes I learn about something in a haul that I’ve never heard of before and want to try out ^_^  I’ve also found ways to save a little money from hauls. So I am going to share my hauls here and maybe you will find something new to try out! First, my … Read More

Candy!?! I think? lol

posted in: Creativity | 8

I am still learning the crafters lingo guys so please bare with me if I muck it up at times ^_~ Today’s post is a goodie give-a-way except it’s my favorite kind – the kind where everyone gets the candy! Also did you know you can use digi stamps in the Silhouette Cameo machine? I didn’t even know the machine existed. I don’t actually own a cutting machine myself (maybe one day!) but my friends Malisa and Tabbetha use the … Read More

My first challenge yay =)

posted in: News | 8

I love music. I think I spend nearly 95% of my available time listening to music. So when I saw Paula post about a challenge based on Song Inspiration I knew I was gonna do it! ^_^ So I headed over to the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog to see what’s what. Once I saw that it basically had to be a Saturated Canary stamp I knew just what I was going to do ^_^ I’ve only purchased a few stamps. … Read More

My Faery Art Mother & Celebrating the Journey

posted in: Creativity | 4

Art journaling, card making and creating cute digital stamps are my three newest passions. I never realized how I had pigeon-holed myself into web graphics. Don’t get me wrong – I still love designing websites and the beautiful graphics to decorate them. But there is something so liberating about being able to hold a colorful piece of artwork that you created between your fingers, in your hands. About mid-way through 2012 I decided I would start working on “tangible” art … Read More

Color Theory Part 1 The Color Wheel

posted in: DIY | 3

I thought I would do a few blogs about color theory. Specifically the RYB additive color model which is what we use most often when we create art. I’m sure you already know a little bit about it from grade school lessons about the color wheel but I thought I might offer a little more in-depth information that you might find useful when creating your arts and crafts. To start, let’s get a little color theory vocabulary out of the … Read More
