A little Me

Today I decided to post my newest piece. I havnt been working on my art as much as I should. This represents how I do most of my work. Its always a mess but turns out pretty! I always make the biggest messes when I am working on something. It looks like my desk only alot more pretty and girly! There are alot of details and  it was hard to take pictures of!

 This was alot of fun make! I used hot glue and crayons. I melted the crayons into the glue and added some random things around my room. Lace, a butterfly, some silk roses, some scrapbook scraps... I really like the way it turned out! It is available on my Etsy and you can see more of my stuff there as well. I also have a Flickr with some more of my photos and things. Just click the slideshow on the right sidebar!  Oh, and tell me what you think about my collage!

This piece has been sold but if you are interested I can make one similar for you. Also my etsy is empty at the moment but I do have all of my work posted on my Facebook page. I am accepting commission work at the moment !!! Feel free to contact me at

Pinkle Toes Photography

I found this amazing photo while browsing Flickr and just had to click on the photostream!  And sure enough... more AMAZING photos!! This photographer out of Austin, Texas does exceptional work and I cant say how much of an understatement that is!! Her photos are so breathtaking and so personal. She captures every emotion in each shot. You can really tell she puts her whole heart and passion into each single photo she takes. They are all truly a work of art, the settings and color choices, the angles, the props, the lighting, the fine tuning and the presentation of the finished work. All just gorgeous!!
I got started much like every other mom who does photography: taking pictures of my kids.  I did have a fascination with photography growing up (I used to dress up my dolls and hold photo shoots with my mom's Polaroid camera), but I didn't really know what I was doing at all. And then one day I saw an image from the uber-talented and infinitely inspirational Jinky and decided that I wanted to do that, too.  And I just dove in.  I bought my first SLR (a Rebel XT), joined groups on Flickr, read EVERYTHING I could, and played, and played, and played until I started getting results I liked. And that's that. I just learned by reading and doing and making a lot of mistakes along the way. Two books that you should read: Understanding ExposurePhotographing Babies and Children (google can't miss 'em).

I have browsed through her photos for hours just to pick a few to post here but there are hundreds more for you to see on her Flickr and her absolutely adorable and beautiful Blog! They are both a MUST SEE!!!

Luminous Inspirations by Kent Davis

This artist actually found me on flickr. I checked out his website and I really like what he has going. Its very different and beautiful. He takes wood and paper and light and puts it all together to create a piece of art. They seem to flow and feel very free and relaxing. The light adds so much to the artwork as if it is alive. Like the glow you have when you are genuinely happy.

As far back as I can remember I have always been intrigued by light and illumination. Even as a young boy my bedroom was aglow each night with the many glow-in-the-dark models I had built. As I got older I began collecting odd and unusual lamps. Eventually I began creating illuminated sculptures that have since evolved into the pieces I currently make. In creating these pieces I work with three main elements: wood, paper and light. I enjoy working with these natural materials, especially the paper due to its fragility, flexibility and beauty.

 If you would like to learn more about this artist and his wonderful art, you can visit his website! There you can see more pictures of his work and the different angles to show the depth and details of each piece.
