Some time off

I was able to play hooky this past Monday and visited the Wynwood Walls project in Miami for a few hours.  The Wynwood Walls is a community revitalization project located in the warehouse district of Miami.  Huge murals and graffiti cover the sides of buildings and shipping containers.

What an inspiring place, full of street art both on a large and tiny scale.

Here are just a few of the photos I took.  The images that were taken inside the walls I have named the artists but those on the streets unfortunately I do not know who the inspiring piece came from.

We ate at a lovely little Bistro for lunch – Zak the Baker, Avocado on toast with marinated tomatoes and red pepper.  The tomatoes had great flavor and there was just a little kick to the bread with the flaked pepper. . . . .  YUM!

I have a million art journal and canvas ideas running through my head and I left feeling very inspired and can’t wait to go back and explore the neighborhood again.  I just have to figure out a way to play hooky again :)

 

 

Another Long Absence

It seems my intentions are great for this blog but, my execution leaves much to be desired.

I have been trying to get more organized about this site so that when I have the ideas for the blog I am actually in a place where I can write them down and get them done.

Since I have been gone I have taught on a cruise ship headed to Alaska.  That was at the end of July and it was just this past friday that I was able to get my photos off my camera :)

I have designed and had manufactured (and SOLD OUT in one week, yeah me!) a line of stamps  for planners and a set for Art Journaling.  If you would like to see what they look like please click here for the online store:

How Does She Do It?  – this is the stamp set that is helping me get more organized

PS-107 – this stamp set is for people attending school or the parents

Ready Set Go – to help me with planning my next working vacation

and this is the set I designed for Art Journaling – Imperfection

They are BACK IN STOCK

This is a sample of the Art Journal Set which I have used just for fun.

Will try and post more images as I get them photographed. . . . and based on my track record it might be a while, so no one hold their breath!
