starting the day

Three ways to start the day...a good cup of coffee...making art...and a note in my journal about something I'm grateful for!

Temporary "ART"

Leanne created on my wrist an "original work of art" at today's ILMA meeting. As I have seen it numerous times today, I am reminded of the many blessings in my life. I am thankful that God has given me such wonderful friends. ILMA rocks!

Wednesday mornings

Being at ILMA on Wednesday mornings always reminds me of the importance of community.

Studio JOY

Cluttered, messy, and unorganized are three words that you could use to describe a studio that has been used for creating wonderful works of art. They are also words that can bring tears to the person that has to try to actually function in that space. 

One afternoon, while Leanne and I were grumbling about the condition of our studios, we had a Eureka! We thought, why don't we help each other clean up our studios. It would be way more fun if we did it together, and what we have found is that another person's ideas can be extremely helpful in putting things into perspective.  We have called this time share, "Studio Joy," and let me tell you, it really is joy. To have such transformation of a space in just a small amount of time, is almost indescribable.  Thank you Leanne for making my closet a joy to get into. Big hugs, Nancy

sharing art

While traveling I was able to have an art session with two friends. I showed them how to make collage bookmarks. They loved it and I loved showing them how!

Loving My Art and learning how to blog

I consider figuring out how to post this, my very first blog, my creative activity for the day!

Rain Barrel Beauty

Ilma happily painted a beautiful rain barrel in Mount Dora which was auctioned off for $200!
The money raised was used for the Gulf restoration project.
