abstract painting

Here is a painting I did a little while ago. I made an abstract design and i felt like it needed something so then I added the brick wall background. The pic to the right is a full size of the painting and the others are just close up pics of different parts of the painting. Let me know what you think.

child's rockin chair

Well I had 2 ratty old rocking chairs laying around and I felt like painting something. I have got one done. I still need to polyurethane it though. I don't know how I am gonna paint the other one yet. Anyway here is the finished project.

busy busy busy!

Well I've been busy making more jewelry. I have added some to my etsy store. But I still have more to add. I figure I will add a little at a time to keep me in the just listed. So keep checking back. I put a few things on craftsters to get some feedback and I have gotten some really good responses on my stuff. Especially for my big butterfly. It is my favorite also. It toke like a day and 1/2 to make. Which when I go to make another it shouldn't take that long to do now that I know how I want my design to look. I worked really hard on it so I'm glad everyone likes it. I was thinking I would try to make some little ones too and I want to try some different color combos. The one I already made was silver as the base and red and black as the accents. I know I want to try turquiose and brown. I love those 2 colors together. Not sure what else I will try.

Any suggestions? Here's a pic of the butterfly if you haven't seen it in my store yet. More pics in my store also.

my first post

I am a blog virgin so be gentle w/ me everyone. Well besides the couple of post I did on my myspace page recently. I just figured I go ahead a dive in and make my own. I will tell you a little about myself now I guess. I am a stay at home of mom. I have one son he is 4. He is the center of my life that everything revolves around. I am hoping to start selling my jewelry and other fanciful trinkets I love to make soon. I have been creating art since I could hold a crayon so I love making stuff. Its kinda an addiction for me in a way. When I'm not crafting I feel like something is missing. I just have to be doin something crafty. The main reason for this blog is a creative outlet for me to share, get feedback and get my stuff out there. I use all kinds of mediums. My biggest passion right now is for using wire. I make jewelry and other things for the home w/ wire. I also love using beads, buttons, I paint, knit, sew and mosaic also. So I hope to start posting some of my stuff soon. So keep checking back often!
