I used J Wildfire and Photoshop to create these images.

I know this isn’t the traditional New Years Post but it’s a post non the less! I just found these pics of some bracelets that I made awhile back and I thought I would post them. I like the sculptural quality of them.





Hope you all have a safe and fun New Year’s Eve! And a great New Year!

Alzheimers – Concrete

This beautiful most intuitive concrete piece of art is the best explanation of Alzheimers that I have ever seen. It is tragically touching and amazing all at the same time. Christine McArthy of artfulintuition on Etsy made this spellbinding piece called Vanishing Point.

Here is a link to her blog and post about the book.


A Different Kind Of Art Journal – Day 1

On the site Watercolor.com I found a most interesting and fun project to play with.  Art Journaling by Judi Russell. I’m not  a huge fan of journals in any form nor mixed media art which is what most art journaling usually is.  I decided to have a look at the page anyway just to check it out and I am glad that I did. It’s quite fun. Upon waking up one is supposed to take a pencil, close your eyes and just let the pencil scribble all over the page. Then open your eye, look at your scribbles to see if anything definitive stands out. Then trace over it to darken it, then go over it in dark marker. Next color it all in. This is all supposed to answer any mysterious questions that might be lurking in your subconscious mind. As I mis-understood that part I just wrote down whatever thought came to me when making the scribble.  This has been most interesting.

So tonight I am showing you my very first one, with a little reluctance because of the subject matter. I did not have anything on my mind when I sat down to pursue this.  I hadn’t been reading about this particular subject nor thinking about it. This is honestly what happened naturally.  The first sentence, “Each day is filled with new possibilities”  was my first thought then the others flowed from that. I have no idea how or why this particular issue was the subject matter. It just is what it is.

Each day is filled with new possibilities

Lives that are destroyed before they can begin

Lives ripped apart in pain and agony

Before they should ever experience any

The Best Chalkboard Ever!

I have always thought this would be a great idea. Easy to do chalkboard for you dishwasher front or your refrigerator. Check out the site for this great idea.



Who doesn’t like to scribble? Didn’t we all do it in school? Yes, so here is a fabulous program that will really make your scribbles lively! Try it, it’s fun!

Tina and Terry

I’d like you to meet Teeny Tiny Tina and her dog Terry. You can read more about them at my Etsy shop.

Marie Antoinette Inspired Paper Slippers

I know these don’t have a theme from the correct time period but I thought it would be interesting to change it up a bit. I looked through a 1937 May issue of Redbook magazine and found a few pictures to make some forms with. This one is a Beech Nut Gum theme. The photo shows both sides of the sole even though there is only one actual sole.

More Diorama Fun!

Check this out. I found this cool site about dioramas that has so many great projects on it. Can’t wait to share some of this with my grandson. I think dioramas are a wonderful way to spur a kids imagination.

Halloween Fun

I had the most wonderful time making this diorama with my grandson yesterday. He is crazy about Halloween. I don’t like the scary parts just the fun of it.
