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!

Note Cards and Post Cards

I love photography, I always have.  Around 2007 I had this crazy idea to somehow turn my photographs into note cards.  I researched prices for paper, printing, envelopes, sizes... the list goes on!  By 2008 I had started selling my note cards at my local farmer's market in Urbanna, Va.  Time went by and I quickly got distracted by my other artistic endeavors.  I tried to quit doing note cards, not because of cost but because of time, but I have 3 loyal customers (my dad, mother-in-law, and cousin).  I have found a new outlet for my note cards!  Mind you I don't make nearly as much as I would if I did it myself but I don't have to do the grunt work plus I can reach a larger audience.

I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with Zazzle and that's where you can now find me! The name you can find me under is Kimagination13 or you can just click here  

I keep adding to my store every day but it takes Zazzle up to 24 hours to post.

If the link doesn't work you can also just type in zazzle.com/kimagination13

I am sorting through literally thousands of my photographs  and I will have obvious categories like Colonial Williamsburg and Amish Life, quilts, animals, flowers and seasons.  But if any of you out there have a weird or strange request I'd love to hear it!

Here is one from my Animals collection:

I am creating note cards and postcards, some with words and some without.  Zazzle gives you the option to create larger cards, etc. with my design too.
