When Plans Fall Apart

I have a little confession.  I am not really big on planning things. Well, I do plan to some degree, but very loosely.  I also use a planner, and it is very helpful to me, but I will explain how I use it in another post later this week.  Today I want to talk about […]

Art Dolls: To Sell or Not to Sell?

  Yesterday I had a really lovely lady contact me and ask me if I ever sell digital images of my art dolls, so that others could use them in their own art. She sited a couple of art doll examples of which I have been sharing my process of creation on my Periscope shows. […]

Define Yourself

You can find all of the elements used in this piece (except for the face, body shape and quote) in the Define Yourself Collection at Scrapbookgraphics.com Who am I?  What am I?  This is the age old question to which the answers are revealed through out life.  It is an unfolding process. Are we defined […]

Embracing Change – Aging

Continuing on with the same theme as my last post I have been giving a lot of thought lately to the aging process.     There was a time in my twenties when I remember fantasizing about what kind of woman I would be in my elder years and it amuses me now to remember the image […]

Change

Change isn’t often easy, even when you’ve been hoping and praying for it and especially when it comes upon us suddenly and unexpected.  I’ve been needing something new in my life for some time now and I’ve been asking the Universe for clear signs as to what path to take next, only to find myself […]

I’ve Been Love Hacked!

When I first set up this blog I didn’t really do much in terms of making it look pretty.  I just wasn’t sure where I was headed with it back then so I figured I would keep it simple and see how things evolved.   A few weeks ago my friend Lor (aka Rosey Posey) gently […]

Awaken to Joy

It has been a difficult week for me.  I’ve noticed the blues starting to creep in on me and one of my kids is going through a really upsetting time as well.  I’m doing my best not to let depression overcome me, in the way it often does at this time of the year.  I […]

Art is Meditation

Meditation is the act of quieting the mind or in the words of Deepak Chopra, “Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet.  It is a way of entering into the quiet that is already there – buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day.” The process of making art […]

Coping with Copying

  One of the most common complaints within our industry and our community is that some copy the work and artistry of others, usually without offering any credit to the originator.      I stumbled on a blog post today by Leonie Dawson on How She Deals with Copycats and I thought it was probably about time […]
