What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for more than twenty years. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

Some Goodies From Etsy Shops

I recently placed two etsy orders for some alphabet and number stamp sets that I had seen recently at Anthropologie ($35 there.) I knew that I had seen them much cheaper on etsy so when I got home I did some research and looked at a variety of shops that were selling them.

The two shops that I ordered from were Chickydoddle and DIYAssistante. 

Chickydoddle is in MA and shipping was super fast.

DIYAssistante is in China and it was over a month before the order arrived.  

Both sellers were excellent and I would order from both again.

My only complaint about the stamp sets is that they're not glued very well. The plastic stamp part (they're not rubber) is a bit larger than the mount and they tend to stick out past the wood area. Sometimes they stick together in the box. For the price, I'm not complaining, I'm just pointing it out as an FYI, in case anyone orders. I'm just happy to have new alphabet and number stamps to play with!
