Happy Thanksgiving

Hope that everyone has a happy, health, joyous and safe Thanksgiving!

Hubby and I are planning on going to my aunt's house not too far from Reynoldsburg, Ohio. I am from one of those American, small farming towns and I am so blessed and thankful to be from the country tho I now live in the city.

As you comment, please mention 5 things that you are thankful for. Here are some of mine:

1. My husband and cat "daughter"/My family
2. That I can create art for others
3. My health
4. That I am working at a job
5. Freedom to practice my faith

**After the holiday, I hope to get some of my art up that I am doing.

Here's to turkey, family/friend fellowship, football and yummy leftovers - Enjoy

SF: Color Wheel

Color....Color Everywhere!

I love many colors, so sometimes it is so difficult to choose my favorites. I love it when I go paper shopping, especially the many colors of Bazzill cardstock....I just want all of the colors!

Here is a trivet that I like and the color combo is of my finds at one of the second hand stores in town.

I enjoy bargain shopping and discovering unique finds like this.

The many colors available on the color wheel offers endless creative possibilities....I LOVE that!

Could Not Help Myself

Well, I just had to squeak something creative in before Friday. I wandered over to Michelle Ward's inspiring challenge blog, GPP Street Team. I saw the new challenge (aka crusade) no. 14: Imaginary Friends...Who or What is your Muse.

After thinking for a quick moment, this is what I came up with......

My muse is many things that inspire me, but here are a few that really speak to me.....

The beach and it's surrounding scenery....with it's calm waters, sand with built in therapeutic massage, gorgeous sunsets to drink in and lots of unique shells to take home.
The clouds....Their playful shapes change daily with the weather...they remind me to take my time to dream. The holidays....especially the Christmas season. With it's delightful music, bright colors, festive times with friends and family.

On the Road Again

Here on Friday, my husband, myself and my dad will be hitting the highway on our way to Pennsylvania for a mini weekend getaway (we are going to Gettysburg and Lancaster County).

While riding in the car and looking at the numerous fields, cows and the Turnpike, I will be working on some artful projects along the way.

I may not be posting here for a little while, but do not fret, I will be back here soon to update my adventures and artwork. Stay tuned!
