About Me

My photo

I started this blog on November 23, 2009 just because I wanted to chronicle my artistic endeavors and see "in black and white" how many different directions my artistic brain would go.  I challenged myself to try different mediums and that this blog could be a platform to post my achievements and failures.  I cannot believe it's been six years now!  Over the past 6 years I've learned a few things from writing this blog:
1.  Art is in my blood, I will always be thinking or doing something artistic
2.  About 80% of my work turns out better than the original idea
3.  I am not a fast artist, I have to start on an idea and then let it sit for a while
4.  It's OK that my "artsy" brain sometimes goes in 1,000 different directions at once
With all of this said I now consider myself a mixed media artist because I a lot of my talents cross over into other projects I've already started; It's a great life and I wouldn't change anything about my crazy artistic brain!

Digging into the Archives

I just printed new business cards for myself listing my blog address, etsy address and e-mail.  On my card I also listed the artistic things I like to dabble in.  I've been pondering this list for a few days now and have decided to go back into my photo archives and share with you some of my other artistic endeavors.

One of my other hobbies is knitting.  I'm not that great at it and have only made scarves and hats.  My favorite one, that I made two years ago, was for my niece Lainey.  At the time I made it for her she was only six months old so I needed to make it "bitty".  And since my brother went to Virginia Tech what other color was I going to make it than maroon and orange?

And then when I was finished trimming down the HUGE pom-pom I made for the top...
I stitched the pom-pom on and... PEFECTO!
