Hugs And Kisses

Hugs Kisses

My new canvas art that is now hanging in our newly painted bedroom. I like it. It is teal and yellow paint. The circle and x is made out of a cool copper paper that I found at Hobby Lobby. I love feeling the crinkly paper! The & sign is a thick paper product found at Hobby Lobby. Painted it yellow and then decided to add some bling! I had the color glass for some time and decided to use it finally. I got to play with the glue gun and even burned my finger a few times. 🙂 Still fun.

The only ones to like it on Facebook was my dear sweet daughter and my friend Beth. They are nice people so not surprised they liked it. It was disappointing more didn’t. I guess what matters is I like it and hubby likes it. Or at least that is what he tells me. LOL

Sometimes I let things get to me or read too much into it. I guess when you see all your friends liking other people’s canvas art at those art parties and then they don’t yours it makes me wonder.

I think that is why I struggle with completing my book. I feel once I do and submit publish, no one is going to like it. I then bounce back to who cares? As long as I enjoyed writing it and a few people like it.

A daily struggle.

When will I ever quit caring? Do you struggle with people liking your creations whether it is writing or art? Or am I weird and lacking confidence? 🙂

Clearance Collage

Sports 029

I started this collage a few weeks ago. I have been staring at it wondering what else to add to it. I do this a lot. Stare at it. 🙂

I bought the small canvas squares at an art store and did some cross hatching in ink on them. They are peel and stick canvas, really neat. I will definitely buy some more.

The background paper are scrapbook sheets that I have. I have yet to really start my scrapbook projects, sigh. I may get those done by the time I have all four kids graduated, so that gives me at least seven more years. It’s already been twenty-two which is how old my oldest is.

OOOPs, been busy?

I could probably come up with a lot of excuses, but it won’t change that the books are not done.

Supplies are bought! 🙂

I found some flowers on clearance at another store, just knew they would come in handy someday. Clearance racks rock!

It just may be stored for twenty-two years is all. Another ooops! I think my husband calls that a hoarder. Nah! I just love cute things.

I hunted for the frame at the same store as the flowers. I actually had a different one picked out, but then this one caught my eye, CLEARANCE!

I am an unemployed writer and creative want-to-be so clearance is my best friend, at least my pocketbook says so.

My “Love Tree”. I have always enjoyed painting trees. I have no idea why. I wonder if I was a tree in my previous life or something.

My hearts. I love to do art for each of the holidays. This is the first I have done for this holiday. I love Valentines Day. I love the kindness and the pretty colors. My hubby said when he saw that I had splashed some color on the canvas finally, oh you put pink on it. I just grinned. He doesn’t like pink too well. 🙂
