Exciting News!

7 Mar

I have been invited to participate in the Norcross Art Fest in historic downtown Norcross, Georgia!  I am so pumped about this, y’all!

Norcross Art Fest by Splash Festivals

Friday afternoon I received email titled “Your great artwork” from Frances Schube, one of the founders of Splash Festivals, Inc.  <<insert uncontrollable heart racing>>  The email was an invitation to be a part of one of the two art festivals that is held yearly.  Their events are by invitation only participation, so needless to say I about fainted as I read her email.  THIS. ROCKED. MY. WORLD !

My number #1 fan and super supportive husband didn’t think twice before saying “YES, WE’RE GOING!”  So, I excitedly accepted the invitation and completed my registration and come October 1 and 2 we’ll be in Georgia and I’ll be surrounded by a 100+ other inspiring artist selling my work to the estimated 50,000 attendants .

For this I feel honor.  For this I did cry a little.  For this I know God caused to happen.  For this I am so grateful.

As the details for the 2011 event unfold, I’ll keep you up-to-date.  For now, I’m off to paint!

Just Be!

Oh My Garland…

24 Feb

Oh my garland, oh my garland

Oh my garland, hanging high

You are pretty, you are lovely

Oh my garland, hanging high!

I love garland.  All kinds of garlands.  I love strands of things– strands of lights, strands of garlands, strands of pearls.  Sometimes I just think about hanging garlands and strands of lights all over the rooms of my house.  I have refrained from doing so, however I do have a few here and there at all times.

Here are just a few of my favorite garlands.

This is a lovely strand of felted garland by The Big Brown House.



Look at these tissue paper pom garlands made by Party Poms.



I love Happy Birthday banners and cardboard so I instantly fell in love with this repurposed garland by Cardboard Sheek.



Oh my!  Oh my!  Look at this beauty–  hand crocheted Flower Dot garland by Anne Marie.


I hope you fell in love and clicked on over to one of these shops and supported these artist.  Or maybe you were inspired to think of a way to make some garland yourself.  Happy day to you!
