A Studio Story

Some of you may not know this, but I started The Art House Studio to work on my own creations outside of my home. My "stuff" was starting to take over all the rooms of the house.

What's so wonderful and delightfully surprising is what once was a small space in Kitchener has now turned into a fun place where people come to paint, learn new techniques and where my daughter can 
spend time with me while creating Valentine's decorations for her dance.
Thank you all for using the Studio. My art house, is your art house.

Have a creative day!

A Peak into Pinterest

I used to have a pen pal when I was younger. I wrote to a girl in Wales. I miss the days of receiving letters in the mail. We should all stop (for just a moment) sending emails or texts and take the time and send someone a note via snail mail. And wouldn't it be lovely if you send your letter in an envelope creation!

Which brings me to the title of the blog post. I collected some images I found on Pinterest of mail art. Love them!
I plan on creating my own mail art and I challenge you to create some mail art of your own.

Share with us in the comment section of this post or dare I say it, the Studio's Facebook page. Hehe!

Have a creative day!

"Totes Perf" - some fun on USTREAM

Thank you to everyone who joined me live on USTREAM last Friday night. I had a great time creating "on the fly" with you all!
Here is the little project I created with you. It's a fun little mixed media collage using some wood hearts from Harmonie, some tissue paper, PPA, some paint and stamps - most noteably ... "Supergirl" from Stampotique.  Fun, fun - thanks again for joining me.  Hope you like the recording:

Have a creative day!
