What's New This Week (September 26, 2011)

I love the grungy style of art journaling. Here is a piece entitled "The Fledgling" as a high school senior is about to leave the nest. This piece can be recreated with your pictures. Check out my etsy shop for details.

Picture on Glass

One of my clients shared this site with me this week. We're going to have her picture done here. Can't wait to do one of my own. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Your Photo to Art...Hands of Time

I've been scanning in old family photos to create an album for my Mother In Law. Created this look for a client and have now used it on some of our own photos.

Maid of Honor...random words

An etsy client came up with this great idea. She didn't want to write a letter to her bridesmaids, but instead wanted just some words and phrases to capture various childhood memories. This is one of the works in progress...

Art Journaling

My daughter and I had a girls night out and finished up with dessert at Barnes & Noble. Came across a magazine, Art Journaling by Somerset Studio. Spilled coffee on it so I purchased it. Was so inspired I spent most of Monday morning creating a completely new look. Just received a couple of orders for it so I'm off to work.

Maid of Honor Gift

A letter I wrote to my sister the day before my wedding. Send me your picture and any changes to the letter to receive a completely personalized gift for your maid of honor.

This listing comes with the following letter and a picture of the two of you.

Wording as follows:
To My Sister, Name
Sisters, especially sisters that are best friends
Share a bond like no other.
You give me the freedom to be myself
There's never a need to pretend.
You know things about me either because you
Were walking through them with me,
Observing calmly as I was going crazy
or just because of those late nights on long calls where confessions are made because we don't seem
To be able to keep secrets from each
other very long anymore.
I've asked you to stand beside me tomorrow because
There simpy is no other that I could possibly dream
Of asking to be in that place.I know in the years to come
when tears of frustrationw
ell up within me,
It is you I will call.
It is you that will need
to be the voice of reason.
That is why I need you
to stand with me as
witness to my vows.
I will need you to remind
me of them. And laugh with
me at the stupid things I do.
And cry with me over hurts (either real or imagined)
that I feel...or that I cause.
And remind me that I am forever and always
being chiseled
by the Master’s Hand.

Love,Your Name
