G*I*V*E*A*W*A*Y Ends Friday!!!

I can't believe that it is the middle of the week already! Wow, it amazes me how time flies. Can't wait to get outside and work in my flowerbeds. Right now there are weeds galore but hey, no worries, warm weather is right around the corner. It is rainy her today, so what, a perfect day to stay inside :o)
Don't forget...the 'playing house' Collage G*I*V*E*A*W*A*Y ends this Friday, April 3rd. Just look a couple post down to find more details.
Featured above is another matchbox. I have had so much fun with these! This one was loads of fun...of course with the Wizard of Oz gang all the childhood memories come flooding back! Lions & tigers & bears...oh my! Ok, it is out of my system now LOL!
Featuring Dorothy & her ruby slippers hidden inside!Creation began with a matchbox style box. This box is tad larger than normal size so it gave me more space to add whimsy! Collaging started by adding quality papers, inks, digital images, unique trims, buttons, etc...Voila, the piece came alive!
In my etsy shop now.
Have a Blessed 'mid-week' day ~ Misty

Just relaxing... Wednesday, March 25, 2009

~My up and coming little artist~

What a great day to relax :o) My family is feeling better so time to take a deep breath. Just sitting down with a cup of coffee with my feet up. The most exciting thing today has been making homemade playdough with my daughter. We started with just plain white and then Emma asked 'Mommy can we make pink?'. How could I say no to that face. With that said we made not only pink but also purple and yellow. I am such a sap LOL! Making the playdough was fun I must say! Sometimes we can overlook the simple things in life that our God in heaven has blessed up with. I keep thinking that my little girl is going to be grown up before we know it so any time that I can spend with her is priceless!

Thought I would share with everyone the picture that my daughter gave to me today! Made my day. She is always in the art studio with me and when she is not playing with playdough she is drawing. I think I need more fridge space LOL!

We all have SO many daily blessings that we fail to recognize and also fail to recognize who the supplier of them is.

Well, back to relaxing, think I will go finish my daily bible reading :o)


next post down!

Many Blessings~Misty

~Greetings Fellow Blogger Friends~

Almost the end of the week, where did it go! I think mine was taken up by moving my art studio. I didn't realize how much 'stuff' I had and how much stuff I finally had to throw away. I went through everything even down to each bead. Just wanted to make sure that I would never have to go through that again, yikes! It was worth all the time and work I have to admit. It came together much better than I even could imagine. The only thing left to do is to decorate the walls and that is the fun part! Right now they are pretty much a blank canvas so maybe some creative painting on them or framed artwork or both LOL who knows. I have a 5 yr old so I am sure she could take care of some of the space :o) I will post pics next week and will also post the giveaway on Monday (3-23)!
I am so excited to introduce a new line of 'playing house' collages. Above is the first one in the collection and I love them! I am creating more now so others on the way soon! I just listed the one above in my etsy shop if you want to stop by a visit :o)
Have a Blessed & creative day~
