Re-discovering my natural creativity allowed me to look inward, enabling me to filter my world from my emotions and perceptions. This is who I am now. My art consist of mixed media and making jewelry from vintage finds. I love decorating my home, gardening, photography, journaling, traveling and working in my art studio. Most importantly is making time for my family and friends, that make my life good.
There are 3 blogs that stand strong in my mind, that inspired me to find my creative side that I had lost over the years. I remember reading these blogs...all were young women taking their passion and making a career of it
I am going to feature them in the next few weeks.
I would like to start with Donna Downey...her blog is entitled "Simply Me". I met Donna a week ago for the first time. I attended three classes taught by her. She is talented beyond words, down to earth, and a great teacher.
My favorite thing on her blog is the Inspiration Wednesday. There she paints a page in her journal every week. So inspiring! Here is a recent example.
I have been following her since she was a scrapbooker. Bought a couple of her books on crafting with photos. Seems like I have watched her children grow up, watch Donna grow as an worldwide known artist, and watched her & her adorable husband form a strong business team.
Be sure to follow Donna on her blog and every Wednesday for Inspiration Wednesday videos. The great thing about her online workshops is that there is not time limit and you can continue to use this forever at your own pace.
She also does Collage Mondays. Lots going on at her blog, website, online store, and studio in North Carolina. Check it out! And keep an eye on her class schedule to see when she'll be in your area. If you never taken one of her classes in person, you really should treat yourself to as many as you can. You won't be sorry.
I cannot say enough good things about Donna. She is a wonderful teacher, sharing her skills with everyone she encounters. Now, please take some time and go check out her blog.
