With the New Year fast approaching I hope to continue to learn and grow everyday. My style has surely evolved since stepping here into blogland. I know that there are still many more mediums, techniques, & tools I'm itching to try out. My creative growth will always be a continuous work in progress. I really love that about art. You can go as far as the imagination can take you. The possibilities are endless.

Kindred Spirit Surprise!

Kindred Spirit: a person who shares beliefs, attitudes, feelings; also called kindred souls

I received the most lovely surprise gift from my fellow kindred spirit Paulette aka Beedeebabee in the art world. A load of chocolate goodies and a super *S*P*E*C*I*A*L* ornament just for me!

Thank you soooo very much Paulette for this forever keepsake of mine! A fabulous ornie that will be happily displayed all year round. I'm so glad that our friendship has blossomed even before I painted Anne & Diana from one of our favorite stories, Anne of Green Gables. Hence, kindred spirits, for those of you familiar with L.M. Montgomery's novels. Kindred spirits are hard to come by, but when you find them, those friendships last forever.

With the whole excitement of receiving such a heartwarming present, I just snapped away with my camera. Here is the slideshow showing what I uncovered as I opened the box in utter delight.

As you can see, it is gorgeously detailed! I always marvel at her unique and intricate style. Eye candy that goes on and on! Completely hand-stitched and embellished with beads, sequins, and amazing ribbon embroidery. Yes, all hand embroidered! Centered in this masterpiece are the words that describe our friendship, "Kindred Spirits". Perfect as can be! Sweetly and oh so neatly put together!

A Million Thanks again Paulette!!! I love it! I feel so honored and blessed to receive such a beautiful gift.

Great Big Kindred Hugs,

Lisa :)

You can check out more beautiful works of Paulette at Beedeebabee's Etsy Shop where you will be sure to fall in love with her treasures like I always do. Her blog is still in the works... :)

Etsy Shop Opening!

I finally opened an Etsy Shop! I'll be adding more goodies soon! Come and visit when you can! :)

Sew Busy

Here are the pillow quilt ornies I've been working on since being away from blogland. Completely handstitched and created using altered prints of my original paintings. Embellished with fabrics, felts, sequins, beads, ribbons, jingle bells, & jute hangers. Stuffed with polyfil and finished off with a blanket-stitch trimmed with yarn. Sizes range from 3.5" in diameter to the largest at 5" in diameter.

Ta da! I love to stitch, as you may already know. It's such a relaxing thing for me to do. I'm currently working on some other stitching projects as well as some new paintings. Keep watch!

I hope to list a couple of these ornies for sale this week.

Creative Blessings,
Lisa :)

Sweetie Pie Steph of Fantastic Figments has honored me with passing the Marie Antoinette Award. Thanks so much Steph!

You are Loved


Sometimes I find myself torn between crafts, especially when it comes to stitching and painting. They are my two favorites afterall. That's why I like to incorporate them both whenever possible. Combining both artsy worlds at the same time makes me a happy crafter. And also it helps relieve my creative fix that I need to feed every now and then.


8" X 10" on canvas board

Created using oil pastels & acrylics. Textured, sanded, & distressed for a prim appearance.
