Creativity may be found anywhere, at any place...
even at work!
I carry a camera in my bag at all times, however, this photo was shot using my iPhone as I watched my school children play. This little girl looked so cute, romping on the playground equipment in her frilly skirt...
I saw an opportunity to get creative... and to also make work even more enjoyable!
I too, love to PLAY!

Things With Wings...

I am sitting on the sofa, wrapped up in my "Snuggie", sipping hot beverages. Yes, I am nursing a cold.
Although it has been a very mild Winter here in Kansas, I still wish for Spring to hurry up and arrive.
Possibly this is why I have been painting things with wings.
I look forward to planting a garden, watching flowers bloom, and butterflies dancing!
For now, I can only paint my own Spring!

Handmade Valentine's...

First, I painted several hearts using watercolors on heavy, watercolor paper. The scroll designs were achieved by simply doodling onto the paper with a wax crayon before applying the watercolors. This technique is called, "wax resist".
Allow the paint to dry and then cut out the hearts. 

You may want to embellish your hearts with silk flowers, paper roses, buttons, lace, etc. I made this paper rose!

Glue hearts onto blank cards and add your message!
Deliver to the post office...

Return home and eat chocolate!

Hearts Galore!

Hello, February... the "Love" month! For several years now, it has also been my most dreaded month! For me, it was a month that did not bring flowers or romance...
but instead, grey skies, colder weather and loneliness! Hmmm...
could this all be changing for me at last?

Inside of my moleskine journal I see hearts galore! They seem to be popping up in much of my artwork these days! (giggle giggle). 

I could not seem to stop with just a single page with this entry!
Today, I welcome February with open arms and a happy heart.
Today is especially fulfilling for me as I am enjoying a day of creativity and "catch-up". Yes, I have been very busy working with kiddos and even took an after school position. Creating a new life altogether keeps me challenged but things are truly falling into place! Eventually, I will settle into my new routine and will be blogging consistently.

Wishing everyone a perfect day!
