A few new things

Meet Louisa, who will soon be embarking on travels in my art as part of a group project for His Muse, which is a group of Christian artists on eBay. She reminds me of my great-grandmother, whose name was actually Louise. Isn't she sweet? (But not too sweet.) Our group has decided to do a challenge series of art featuring our little girls in different settings and shown with different Scriptures of our own choosing. The pieces will be auctioned every month.

We've already instituted a challenge where we each create a piece of art based on our own intrepretation of a certain Scripture each month. It has been such fun to see what each artist creates. Last month we did Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding..." I made a small purse, shown here.

Next, a link to my current auctions, where I am offering several sets of ATC blanks:*offeringsQQhtZ-1

Now that I'm finally done with taxes (woohoo!), I have some time for art. Today I practiced FME (free-motion embroidery) and tomorrow I will be putting it to good use in an angel project inspired by Gustav Klimt's popular work, "The Kiss." I like his *clean* artwork. Of course, we may have a playday at the park instead. Decisions, decisions...

Good night.

Perhaps I should add some art...

It occurs to me that if I'm going to do this, perhaps I should share some of the art I just mentioned. Here's a link to my gallery at ZNE:

As you'll see I like variety. :-)


Hmm. Yes. Well. What an inoccuous start to blogging. I'm trying to simply post a comment to someone I might know and here I am with a blog. Very interesting. What was it the Python's used to say--oh yes, "And now for something completely different!" A blog in my life.

Who am I? I am a Christian, I am a wife and mom (of the stay-home type, although we do so many things that I'm rarely at home. Ironic, isn't it?), I am a volunteer and I am an artistic type. I work mostly in the altered style, using and mixing papers, fibers, paints, stamps and found objects. Much of my work is inspired by and contains Scripture, so this is my offering to the Lord and to you, the viewer.

Blessings to you! :-)
