I start an online class with Christy Tomlinson Monday! She is an amazingly talented mixed media artist. She has an online store called Scarlet Lime. I received my order from her today and it exceeded my expectations. She is a mom of 6. Wow! Her website is on my blog list. Go check her out. You will not be disappointed.

Don’t give up in the midst of great loss, disappointment, or failure, or you will miss the greatest miracle in your life. If you praise God through it, you will see the birth of something new and good that would never have happened if this tragic thing had not occurred.
I saw this quote on someone's blog and it made me pause. Wow, it has left me speechless.

Wow! How did I collect so much stuff? Could it be the result of all those years of obsessive, impulsive shopping. Surely not. It is a little ridiculous. I could probably not buy another thing and have enough stuff to do an art project a day for a year. I will post pics when we are finished. My sweet daughter in law is leading this little clean up. I told her tonight that we should have taken before pictures and I offered to throw everything back on the floor, but she refused to have any part of that. Bummer. If anyone has some cool storage ideas for art supplies I would LOVE to hear about them. Hopefully we will be finished by craft night. Fingers crossed!

Sometimes I think my brain gets in the way of my creative process. I always think there has to be meaning in every little detail. I wear myself out sometimes before I even get started. Lately, I have just been creating for the sake of creating and it seems to be working. Part of me goes in to every piece whether I think about it or not. Colors that I love. Shapes that I like. When I'm done if I enjoy looking at it then that's all the meaning I need.
