Yesterday someone walked into my studio for the first time and they said…."You are an artist".  I thought for a second and said "Yep I am"…Although by the look of things I am a collector of all things art but nonetheless…I AM AN ARTIST.  Felt good to say it. 

So not every piece feels like a piece of art to me but it is reflective of how I am feeling at the time. So I completed a page in my Daily Inspiration Journal and took another stab at drawing flowers.  Not sure how I feel about it yet but loving the process so I guess that is what matters.  Plus I am using those mounds of art supplies I have collected……….


  • Helmar Decoupage & Craft Paste
  • Acrylic Paints – DecoArt
  • Water Color Crayon – Garan D'Ache
  • Charcoal Pencil
  • Indian Ink: Saler Rowney
  • Ink: Stayz On
  • Stamp – Catslife Press

So not a bad way to end the week……and I have the pleasure of some young budding artists coming over to do some art in my studio.  This little artist has some peeps coming over to create……

 Have a GREAT holiday weekend everyone!  Happy 4th of July!
