Welcome To My Colorful World!

Welcome to my colorful world. I am a happy (most of the time!) wife, mom, MeMaw, artist, and art teacher. I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I also love to create, cook, nest, decorate, entertain family and friends, laugh, collect vintage stuff, snuggle my cats and dog, play outdoors, and so much more! In addition to all this, I also publish an online magazine with my dear friend, called Mermaids of the Lake. Oh, and I love a big cup of coffee with cream, a dry martini, red wine, blingy jewelry, pink lipstick, blue fingernail polish. I love color! Beautiful colors inspire, motivate, and move me!!! What's my favorite color? I can't choose. I love them all! Yellow, pink, red, turquoise, blue, purple, orange, green and every variation in between!

Altered Art, Repurposing: Mixed Media Collage

BELIEVE that something wonderful is about to happen!

I LOVE to create art out of something intended for the garbage or recycling bin. This little mixed media collage started out life as a Junior Mint box! It feels so good to rescue something from the garbage and turn it into something beautiful, inspirational, or useful! I have been making these little paintings out of all kinds of boxes. I still love to paint on canvas, but what a way to save money!

Joyful anticipation of wonderful things seems to attract more and more wonderful things!

  1. That little box is a true work of art! I love to see something creative made out of something that is usually just thrown away, or hopefully recycled.

  2. Thank you so much, Bridget! It is one of my passions. I get such a thrill when save something from the trash!
