Heart The Arts Prompt 2010 Week #1 " Amazing "

I have a few weeks to catch up on and I did "Amazing" last night so I can get a little closer to where I should be! It was a quickie and I had a lot of fun with it. Art Journals are really all about emotion and spontaneity so I just let loose and played around with doodles and colours. I'm going to do # 15 tonight because by this Saturday it will be Week 18 I'm supposed to be on! Whew! oh well , less chatter and more painting! Toodles! xo

New Little Goodies!!

Well it just wouldn't be pay day now if I didn't go out and buy some new goodies to play with! I swear I only stopped to buy groceries, cleaning supplies and to pay some bills! Oh well, with Mother's Day coming up it seemed like a good idea. I cannot wait to start playing! The new pieces are from Jolee's Jewels line and are Crystallized Swarovski Elements. Absolutely beautiful colours, shine and sparkle! The yellow rose pendant is stunning and would look gorgeous with some pearls and gold chain! The pink and iridescent hearts are so pretty and also the clear crystal flower ones! Can you tell I'm excited?? Stayed tuned for the photos and make sure you stop in at Ella Lynns and Casey's to see all the other beauties I have there for sale. xox

Heart The Arts Prompt Week # 13- "Need"

Well when I saw the word for this week's prompt I immediately thought, "I NEED MONEY!!" because "I NEED A NEW CAR!" Yes the joys of owning materials things..... However when I really thought about this entry I wanted to remain positive not greedy or concerned over what others thought of my little ole beater ( even though pieces of it are literally falling off whenever I go to work....the other day it was the driver's side mirror!!) My poor kids! Not embarassed at all! So I keep telling myself that I already am wealthy and I can have anything I want, money is absolutely no object! So that leaves the things that money cannot buy which is friendship, family, and of course love. I love the Beatles and their song, "All You Need Is Love" is a favourite of mine and therefore is a major part of this entry. As with all my journal pieces , the pages are spontaneous and I just go for whatever is tugging at my brain in that moment. The paint trickling down the page reminded me of rain drops which then reminded me of shelter in the form of an umbrella to keep all those little cuties warm and dry.....LOVE. That is all we need. :)

Happy 22nd Birthday Brendan

Every time I celebrate the birthdays of my children I feel this little twinge of sadness because another year has gone by and they are a tiny bit closer to leaving the nest. Brendan turned 22 today and has grown into such a wonderful young man . I am so proud of the person he has grown to be and know that the day he decides to fly away out into the world I will have to let him go. I can only hope and pray that the world is kind to him and treats him well. Brendan, as you celebrate your birthday today always remember how much you are loved and how proud all of us are of you.
