One Flaw In Women

Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colours.. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideas. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give. HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.

A few more necklaces that I made today while playing around in my studio. Wish I had some more time to create some more but 4 is all I had time for. Tomorrow is another day !

Autumn Art Journal Page

Autumn is my favouite time of the year with it's crisp air, gorgeous coloured landscapes and endless inspiration. I haven't painted in my art journal in awhile and needed to play and get messy with some paint and glue. It's a great release and I love how it allows me to be spontaneous.

Studio Time....

Had an extra day off this week and had some emotions to get out so I started a little fire in the ole stove and spent some much needed time in the studio. I've been working on a painting that is nothing more than me needing to relieve some stress and do a bit of grieving and therefore it is a piece that may look a bit caotic to some. It is a 2 part piece which I named "Converge" due to the fact that I felt every emotion come to the surface during a difficult week ranging from saddness, anger, confusion, heartbreak, and oddly a feeling of gratitude,respect and understanding. It was great therapy and I have hung it over my fireplace where It will be a constant reminder of the special young man who inspired it.

Folk Art.....

I looove painting folk art pictures and creating situations { story like} into the scene and have had great success with these types of paintings over the years. Some of the paintings reflect my own childhood memories and the innocence of those times. I wish my own children could have memories as I did and enjoy moments outdoors using their imaginations to entertain themselves instead of all the technology that never leave their sides. Anyway, I've been dabbling with a couple canvas and will be creating more of these scenes so stayed tuned!

Friendship Book

This is a little memory book I made for a dear friend to celebrate our friendship , her birthday, and all the fun times we had together. I had a blast making it and I was finally able to give it to her last night. I'm so happy she liked it and I thought I'd share it here with all of you.
