Wednesday, January 1, 2014

hello friends,
it is january, 1 2014. i have pondered what word to focus on in 2014 and what i might want to work on....but i kept seeing this art i did last year.   i still find it amazing it is now a stamp at unity stamp company. a fun opportunity in 2013 that i hope carries over to 2014. i had chosen focus as my word for 2013....focus on art, following through on digital art, sell both, focus on me and my marriage....but then the babes came and i lost focus of all that and my focus became my daughter, who struggled with severe post-partem depression. i thought it was my job to keep her alive and the babes safe....a daunting task and a roller coaster ride. she has shown great strength and determination to overcome this illness and she is an incredible mother. she also went to college full time this fall. we are still working on sleeping issues for everyone....we never get enough especially my daughter. back to 2014....i don't know what is coming but i just keep thinking how the Savior is our greatest gift....he gave his life to me and you. so what gifts am i giving back or am i just floating along....2013 was a survival year.....but i want 2014 to be stay OPEN to giving Christ a hearted, open to art and opportunity, open to being a better person, wife, mother and nana. i won't have anymore time then before but if i am open minded and hearted i can be open to be in the moment and give freely kind words and love. i can be open to choose happiness....and open to let others choose who they want to be without it hurting me.  i think life is not so much about resolutions but living a life to be better today then yesterday....and sometimes goals help us get there....sometimes a word helps guide us to a better place....i think life is about keeping the greatest gift in our hearts everyday of the year and not just holidays that will help us become a better person.

what words, gifts, hopes or fears do you have for 2014?

ps in 2014 i will be doing an inspirational tuesday tag tutorial on my other blog it will include my, unity stamps and whatever art supplies are with in reach that tuesday.....join me next week....jan 7, 2014.

new samples

I was lucky enough to be part of a great group and guest design for Susan K Weckesser. I wanted to create a few more samples for Susan K Weckesser

so first up is a card....i used the cards from Michaels dollar bin 4 cards with envelops for $1.00 quick and easy just start embellishing and adding a stamped image. so I did do a little mixed media to this one by gessoing a rectangle to layer the stamped image on and then stamp a background stamp on it. washed the whole card with golden fluid raw umber paint. some tissue tape on ribbon and ribbon loops stapled on then foam taped the house on....
stamps can be found here

next up is a leather cuff....

You have until Saturday night 11:55 PM CST to leave a comment at Susan K Weckesser’s My Sweet Earth.
prize package.....come play along.

my project
I started with a clay pot and painted it with gesso. then i used some paint and dry brushed it around and some color shine for shimmer affect. I gathered stamps and papers by Susan K Weckesser

I cut a styrofoam ball to fit in the bottom of the clay pot and glued moss on top to hide it. I recycled the star clip that had broke off something store could use a binder clip or alligator clip glued on to a dowel then wrap ribbon on it and tie a bow....use strong glue like e6000.

the stamps are from Unity stamp co.  Susan's are here and the dream hope do is here
i stamped and watercolored banners and sayings and Susan's sweet bird, oh and the houses for the the way my daughter in law Mrs. Dickinson is a teacher. i used Susan's paper from want2scrap. the black birds are metal from either Michael's or Hobby Lobby on sale.

a little twine and ribbon to finish it off.

the nice thing i can do up different saying to clip in...and enjoy or give as a gift.  THANK YOU so much for coming by.
