I am a self taught mixed media artist and instructor living in Virginia with my Husband and our family of fur babies. I love all things vintage and strive to use those discarded bits of artistic flotsam and jetsum in my creations. I also love finding those treasures that others can use to feather their souls and their nests so please check out my Etsy Shop as well. Thank you for stopping by.

Sweet story! Working thru downtimes is a struggle and having support = awesome.

And isn't that a cute Moleskine Journal? I'd recognize a Kelly Barton work from 10 blogs away! I don't think the link crediting her worked, but everyone should go check out her website and store. I think it's important to make sure other artists get credit, ya know? :)



Thanks Everyone! Thanks beanblossom for the link to her work! I've updated the post to reflect this. I hate when I find something on Pinterest and it doesn't give the link all the way back to the source. :)
