"Sensational Sun" in progress

I am so excited, I am leaving for the beach on Saturday for a week. I can't wait to step out of the house and onto the sand with my bag full of pens and journals. I am so ready to sit on the beach under my big orange umbrella listening to the sounds of the waves. A few cold drinks and my art supplies with keep me there for hours.

These photos are of some of the pages I am preparing ahead of time so I can spend the week at the beach embellishing them with words and details. I'm trying to get the messy work done in the studio before I go that way all I have to do is bring my pens to the beach. This is the progress so far. I will have my laptop with me so I'll be checking in with my blog throughout the week with updated photos.

Happy Valentines Day!!
These are little Valentines Mice made out of little white stones. I stuck felt hearts on them and then embelished them with bows and eyes. This is a fun Valentines Day craft for my daughter's second grade class!

Meet India, she is such a treasure! I made from a tea cup I brought back from India last year. She sits 6 1/2 inches tall. The base she sits on is a beautiful square plate I found in Crate & Barrel that matched the tea cup perfectly. India has been embellished with fabrics I also brought back with me. Her hair is a combination of wool and acrylic fibers and she is jeweled with brass accents. India has henna patterns on the souls of her feet and around the tops of her arms and sits in this peaceful position as she meditates. She's waiting to sit in your home and bring you peace.

Art Doll Mable
Meet Mable, she's trying her best to keep her skin glowing. She believes in nourishing her body from the inside out but once a week a good facial mask and cucumbers on her eyes make all the difference in the world. She stand 8 inches tall and would love to sit on the side of your tub or on your dresser. She could spend hours in the bathroom! * Mable is an original one of a kind decorative Art Doll and not meant to be played with as a toy.
