making time....

NO more excuses about not finding time to get in the studio...if I want to make my dreams come true then I will find a way! I know it will be a lot of hard work and late nights but I am ready for the challenge.......today is just the beginning!

The kids are out in the snow so I have found a little bit of time to sneak into the studio today....at some point I will have to clean up my mess! LOL!



Here are my kids enjoying the beautiful snow we woke up to this morning....

It is time to take my dreams by the reigns and finally achieve the things I want! No more excuses.....time to MAKE things happen! I am going to be the artist I dream of being...because I can...because that is what my soul yearns for! I hope you will join me on my adventure! What are your dreams? Share with me what inspires you and what makes you truly happy......

some new pendants....

Here are the latest of my ever changing jewelry...these are made with paper clay, hi res prints, glitter, acrylic stucco and hard coat mod podge. I have also started experimenting with some uv resin....it really brings my illustrations to life and gives them a beautiful, glossy finish!

Wish Boxes....

A new series I am working on called "Wish Boxes".......a place to put little treasures, inspirations, love letters, manifesting lists and so on. A place to hold your dreams....


"This WIsh Box is to remind you to be true.
To inspire you to follow your dreams and remember your passions
Write down promises you've made in your heart.
The hopes you have for your future.
Place in this box the wishes you have for your ice today and tomorrow"


I have finished the first box and I am well on my way to completing the second one.....here are some photos of the completed box as well as a sneak peek of the second.
