Happy Sewing Days...


 Sewing Machine Diva #2
Well most of you know my "sewing studio" is not very large, but I do love it.  
I can do so much with so little....
I change the look of my little area all the time.
It's relaxing to switch it around...you know?
See my girls keeping watch...
And..Oh how I love my sewing machine diva's too.
This one was my third sewing machine.
Seems like ages ago that I bought this one...
Now that I have hmm.. let me think...
Six of them...yikes!
Oh Yeah...I Loveeee My Sewing Machine Divas!
You can never have too many...
LOL
Happy Sewing Days!

Oh Yeah..it's that Serious!

Beauty as My Eyes See it...


My Passion and Love for My Art...



These images take me back...
When I started this journey, I remember going through my stash of images and fabrics and being so excited about the idea of merging them together to create fabric collages.  I wanted my art to be unique...a sense of beauty that was uniquely mine to share.  
I had a vision that was clear...I couldn't wait to pull it all together.
When I look back over all the collages I have created, I am amazed at how God truly inspired and instilled in me the ability to create the art that I do.   Up until that point, I had never used a sewing machine.  Never created a collage, or had the interest to do so.  When my mom passed on to Glory, the depression kicked in and after dealing with that for a time, I knew I had to emerge from that state.  I knew that I had to emerge from it victoriously and when desperation sets in, it feels like "life or death!"
  And hence wanting to LIVE..my art...my freedom from depression...and sadness began to take root.  
Now here I am today...Creating Beauty as My Eyes See it...
I still have such a long way to go but from where I was to where I am...
the Journey has been worth every tear, late night, and burn from the hot glue gun...smiles.
Thank you for believing in me and the Beauty of my Collages...
Thank you for embracing my heart in my art.
Live Life Loud!
