I hope you had a nice Thanksgiving weekend. I am starting to decorate around the house for the holidays and having fun taking pics. I finally have an Iphone! I was living in the stone ages for quite some time. Anyhow, I am very excited to set up an Instagram account. Stop by time to time to see what I am photographing and hope you find some inspirations.

The photo I took above is a recent purchase from Tinsel Trading. They carry a line of Wendy Addison products for the holidays.  I am a big fan of her art and the materials she uses. It feels so magical and dreamy.

I Heart My Mom!

As a mom to young kids, it makes me so happy when they would create something and give it to me as a gift...from paper cuttings to drawings. It made me realize it has been a long time since I made or painted something for my mom. So for her 70th birthday which was yesterday, one of the gifts I had for her was this painting I did with flowers in her favorite colors and of course in a heart shape to express my love.

The painting was done in various acrylic paints I had from Liquitex to Martha Stewarts craft paints. The material I painted on is actually primed canvas sheets that you can purchase a pad of them in various sizes at the art store. What's great about painting on this canvas sheet, it's easy to roll up and mail.

1) Virginia Wolf,  2) Pomelo,  3) I Can Do It Myself,  4) Now I Am Big

Hello Everyone...It's been a while since I have posted. I hope to get back to the swing of things with my blog. Hope you are all well. Here is a lettering illustration I did while doing some sketching with my kids over the summer. I also used it as a thank you note to send to a friend. Have an awesome day!
