Missing all of you

This my happy place. Whenever I get stressed or overwhelmed this is where you will find me. Lying in a hammock at the beach listening to the waves roll in, enjoying a good book and then a nice nap. With a tall glass of sweet tea by my side.
I have not had time to create any art lately. We are trying to get the house ready to go on the market. So many things we need to complete. No time for the fun things like playing in my art room. I will have to pack it up soon. Making sure to organize the boxes and do some good labeling.  Hopefully our next place will have a little place for me to create in, again. I liked not having to clean up when it was dinner time or before company came. I could just leave a project right where it was.
Anyway, I have not been visiting much lately. I have missed you all so much. I will have to get my fix right after I post this. I feel like we are old friends and I miss our chats. I need to see what you have created, decorated or picked lately from your garden. Flowers are blooming like crazy and my window boxes are looking fuller and fuller every day. My daisies are coming back with a fury this year. Wowza! Good thing they are in a large container or they may have gotten  out of control. They self seed like crazy.
Anyway just wanted to stop by and say hello. I had a lady who spammed all of my posts so I had to go to comment moderation , so please do not be offended by me needing to read your comments first. It was such a nuisance to go through all of them and delete them.

4 FREE Backgrounds for your artwork

I have not produced any new art in a couple of weeks so I thought I would share a vintage image with you and parts of a painting I made a while back. I thought some of you might like to use these for some of your mixed media backgrounds. Have fun.

A Creative Home

I meant to post this on Sunday but better late than never. My mom (Shannon)  is such an inspiration to me. She is very creative. Especially when it comes to home decor. She can make something out of nothing. She learned to use what she had at a very young age and continued on through the many years of being a single parent.
She has a great sense of humor and a big heart.  Two of my favorite things about her. So I convinced my mom to start her own blog. A Creative Home. It is, or will be all about using creative ideas to make your home a creative home. So if you have a minute please stop in and welcome her to blog land. I have been telling her how wonderful you all are and how much fun it is to have a blog and to blog hop.

Mom is still getting her feet wet but she has her first post up.
