Happy Holidays!

I was in a bit of a quandary about our holiday card and pressed for time (not to mention low on funds!). So I decided I would really go all out creating an artful holiday greeting, and then make an artful (I tried!) video greeting to share.  It was a labor of love and I was thinking of all the recipients as I spent hour after hour creating it.  Would they be insulted by a digital holiday card?  Does everyone still want to open something and display over the holidays?  What happens after the holidays?  Are all the cards set into a box and stored, or disposed of to be recycled or put in the land fill?  Those photos of kids you can't just throw away, but how can you spare the space to keep accumulating it all? Well, yes, it became a quandary inside a quandary.  So, in the end, I just decided, I would go with my original and new idea and go digital.  I think, even those who might be a little put off initially, will see the effort that went into this long as they watch the video ;)  Here it is!

Art Play Take-away!

I've developed a really fun and meaningful little art playshop for our Divine Spirit parties and events.  It's the Art Play Take-away!  For $10 you receive an art lesson and can create a mini work of art to focus your intention, make an affirmation, or share a blessing, or positive thought.  You get step by step instructions, exposure to various art media, and lots of fun playing around with messy, unconscious, art!  (baby wipes a-plenty help you clean up your hands for mess-free shopping!)  Everyone, even those who say they are not creative, have enjoyed this freeing experience.  We will focus on the process, not the result, and you will lose yourself in color while you create.  You will be amazed at what you can make.  Join us at our next Divine Spirit Party or event and get messy with me!

Art Journal Canvases

I've made art journals for special friends to honor them in a unique way, and just thought, why not do a few little art journal "page" canvases to sell at our Divine Spirit parties and events?  So I've put these together, had a blast doing it, and have had a great response so far.  If I don't sell out over the next few weeks, some of you may even receive them as gifts!
