art and a new home

i can't believe my little break turned into such a big break, but i definitely needed it! i really took this time away to regroup and figure out what i want to do with my art filled life. and the answer to that... paint! and to stake a claim for myself in a world of artists.

while i love sewing and tinkering and crafting, i have come to realize that i have been leaning on those things as a crutch, because i know they will sell. well, not anymore. i am making a promise to myself that the next show i do will consist mainly of paintings. a personal challenge if you will.

along with this announcement and challenge, i want to invite you all to my new blog. yep, i have moved, took the plunge into squarespace. why? because they have an amazing gallery feature that i love and if i am going to show the world that i can paint, i might as well have a great gallery page.

will you come visit me at my new home? is still the website, but the blog address changes a bit - you can find it here. i'm still working out some kinks and trying to find a widget that will let you click on it and easily follow me again over there (if anyone has done this, let me know).

thanks for sticking around for the move and following me to my new artful home!

a little break and some regrouping

well, the time has come for me to take a break from this space (as if you couldn't tell by my lack of posting these past few weeks).

the reason? simply that my heart isn't into it right now. at this moment, my mind is going towards a new path in my artwork and i really want to take the time to focus on that. do you ever feel like you spend all your time on social media promoting a product that you actually don't have enough time to make anymore because all you are doing is the business end of your business? yeah, that in a nutshell is me.

i will still stop by from time to time to show you some new projects i am working on, and when the time comes and i am ready to come back here full time as i have been for the past 3 years, i do hope you all are still around. however, if you love my slice of life on Linwood Avenue, and still want a play by play, please check me out on instagram or twitter @ linwoodavenue.

and don't forget about the very exciting art retreat i have planned in january - check it out, so much goodness will be happening and i would love to see you there!

nesting bowls and nesting

there are some things that i just can't leave a thrift store without even though they match nothing that i own and i have no need for them. one of those things happened to be this set of red enamel nesting bowls that are covered in tiny white polka dots.

luckily, the next week, they found the perfect home in a friends red kitchen. i love when i can pair treasures up with people!

festivals and craftiness

as i said, lately the words just aren't there, but at least my craftiness still is!

i have been in clutch making mode lately after i realized how easy they are. this is the third one i have made as a birthday gift, plus two more for me - i am on a roll!

if you want to see more of my craftiness in person, i am involved in two different shows this weekend:

the first is the whimsical wares pop-up shop in marietta, ga. i was so honored to be asked to be a part of this group show and i know it will be a huge success! the great thing about it is that the two wonderful ladies who run it do everything. yes, everything-which leaves me free to be at the country living show in stone mountain, ga, friday through sunday. i will be helping out in the modern june booth working the oilcloth table for the second year in a row. at the country living fair, you will also be able to find my aprons, tinsel hearts, embroidery hoops, lamps, etc.... inside modern june's double booth.

three cheers for festivals!
