Stampington National Craft Month Prompt

Prompt number 8 was "something you made that needed Mod Podge " . This piece took a lot of MP to collage the background paper. It was a little thicker paper than I normally collage with.  I loved the way it turned out though.

Another Project For Stampington's National Craft Month

I had fun doing this little series of cupcakes for people. This was my favorite color combo in bright yellow and blue. I'm working on an alphabet series of cupcakes now and they will be in my etsy shop soon. I do custom alphabet cupcakes for gifts for people a lot. Alphabet series are one of my favorite types of art.

Fun Projects Revisited For Stampington's Pinterst Project

I'm posting the pictures of previously shown projects that I am pinning on Stampington's new Pinterest board. It is for National Craft Month. They are giving a daily prompt on their Twitter feed. I really never thought I'd do Twitter but as in all things progress! I am working on a new line of art for my shop and things are changing a lot but it's exciting. Anyway here are some projects I am pinning.

Prompt # 2 was Vibrant Colors. Here is my entry.

Prompt #6 Wearable Art ...I always loved making these shoes so that is my entry for wearable art....

I'll add a few things every day to catch up......

Coming Out Of Hibernation With A Smile

Happy New Years to everyone ! It was a challenging year and feels like I've been away for so long. I'm finally feeling a smidgen of creativity working it's way to the surface of my mind this weekend. I was peeking around at different blogs yesterday and got very inspired. I read a quote on Sarah Ahearn's blog. It's by John O'Donohue and it really sums up my feelings for the past year as we make our way into the new.

We bless this year for all we learned,

                                                           For all we loved and lost

                                                  And for the quiet way it brought us

                                                  Nearer to our invisible destination......
                                                            ~ John O'Donohue ~

We  enjoyed a quiet relaxing holiday week. Movies and reading. Some organizing of art supplies. Phonecalls with old friends. Cooking some new and some very old recipes. I made my mom's stuffed pepper recipe tonight and it turned out so good. I have fond memories of her making this. She always put raisins in them ! So good!  I hope everyone is having a relaxing and enjoyable weekend as well. Life has calmed down for me finally and I so look forward to renewed creativity in 2012 . Thinking about visiting all of your wonderful inspirational blogs once again makes me happy also. Happy new Year ! :-) Nan
