New mixed media piece

This was actually inspired by an artist friend of mine who has amazing work and encourages me with my work. This piece will be displayed in the Newnan library. It is for sale but I will not be posting the price there. I am charging $45 plus shipping.

If you have a particular saying or lyric you can message me and I can recreate this piece or if you are interested in another piece let me know. Lets work together so you feel connected to your painting.

My new vintage button bracelet

I have had such a great summer so far. I have been so busy creating, homeschooling, working out and soaking up some sun in our newly privacy fenced yard with my girls! It's been a blast! We go to the beach next month and hoping to go to Disney in the fall!

I got a really cute sundress a few weeks ago and needed a chunky piece of jewelry to go with it. So I decided to pull out some of my favorite vintage buttons in my collection and make a cuff bracelet.

I thought I would post a picture of it! Btw it looked great with the dress!!! :)

Friendship bracelets

I went through a stage about ten years ago when I lived near the beach making beaded anklets and bracelets. I still have several left but I used to sell them to a local surf shop in St. Augustine Florida. I loved putting colors together and trying new things that no one could buy at a regular store.

Although the original history of a friendship bracelet is made from embroidery thread or floss I made gifts for friends with beads instead. The embroidery thread bracelets became popular in the 70's but have continued to come back about every 10 years. I plan on teaching my girls the skill of making them when they get a bit older.

However today I decided to let Emma make her first friendship bracelet out of beads for her friend who is having a birthday party today. Both my girls seemed so interested in what I had and were occupied for quit a bit. Lol
It was a lot of fun. I just love getting to do things like that with them and hope someday they will remember the days of experimenting and trying new things with their mama. :)
