When I was itty I had an inordinate amount of creativity flowing from within me! I would cut my Barbie's hair & paint her face, I would trim the cat's fur & whiskers and decorate every window of our house, for each holiday! Once I used left over roofing shingles to create a couch for my under-the-porch-playhouse!
My creativity is constant, whereas my medium isn't always! I sew, paper-craft, paint and stamp! I also love photography and writing. I relish all different types of materials! Yummy fabrics (duck canvas is my most fav!), ribbons, threads, twine, reclaimed wood, home-made papers-- But mostly, swanky sweet, sweet love!
When my daughter entered the world in 2006 she was my newest canvas! I loved dressing her up-- bows, frills and all sorts of swank! In 2009 I found out I was having a boy and was determined that he too would be swanky!
While my art has been tamed, my insatiable desire to create has not! Art and Craft Fairs have been my Art's home until this year (2012)-- I decided to join the Etsy marketplace!
Here I get to sell my art but I also get to participate in life stories... I get to send gifts to loved ones, I get to help decorate for baby showers, I get to swankify other's lives. And that makes me beyond happy, gratified, and fulfilled.
