Leap of Faith - Rock n Roll Craft Show

It's a leap of faith that I took this evening and submitted my application thru ZAPP for the Rock and Roll Craft Show, to be held in St. Louis the weekend following Thanksgiving. I may have lost my mind. But it's all about following a dream and living the life I imagine. I have been postponing too many things, and had/have convinced myself that I let others manage my life. I am the only one in charge. ( Well, except for that God stuff, that is.) Generally, the only person stopping

Here's my artist statement. And the photos here are the photos I submitted of my work.
Now off to work.

Paper, textiles, fiber and STUFF, that’s what my ART is made of. I am inspired by vintage photos, and images, cast off quilts, linens and blue jeans. I enjoy making new and repurposed projects with paint, ink, paper, rubber stamps, repurposed fabric, embroidery and the quilted arts. As an emerging mixed media artist I continue to explore the conflict between decorative and useful; new and repurposed. Finished creations include cards, journals, collage, photos, totes, purses, ornaments, decorative and gift items for the home and holidays.

Enough is enough. It is time to follow your dream and live the artful life you imagine.

My flowers have souls.

A Quote from Lavender and Old Lace

"I always thought my flowers had souls."

August challenge on "Mind Wide Open"

A Wonder Horse In Hand Worth Two In A Rose Bush?

Don't you think this would be a fun addition to your yard? I love it. When I was a kid I had a "Wonder Horse". I don't know what happened to it. We still had it when we sold my parent's house. We must have sold it at the estate sale. My family is holding their collective breath, worrying that this will be added to our yard. It would be fun in the middle of a climbing rose bush.

In search of a 1955 edition of the "Wonder Horse".

If you find one, don't tell my family.
