Art Over Wheels, a Traveling Art Studio and Classroom! #Kickstarter!

Hello All! I'm so thrilled and honored to tell you about a Kickstarter project that my dear friend Dara Brown {a mixed media visual artist} has created! Art Over Wheels! It's a traveling mobile art studio, creative classroom, and art exhibition on wheels! How fun is that?! The first stop will be Baltimore, MD! {You lucky ducky east coasters!} Dara's project goal "is to continue to engage the public in the arts and have the Art Over Wheels Project invigorate and encourage others to think creatively every day!" Beautiful! :)

Please, take a look at her wonderful video and all the creative possibilities of bringing an art mobile to a city near you! I know you'll enjoy it!

We can help Dara reach her project goal by visiting Kickstarter {and see her fabulous website too!}

Make pretty things

Hello everyone! Thank you so much for hanging in here with me! What have I been doing lately? Well, I've been busy making Etsy treasuries for one. Probably too busy with that activity, because it takes me for----ever to make just one. But, I looove making them! Here's my latest. I'm not going to add a bunch of links in this post, but you can click on the title and it'll take you to the Etsy page {please, come visit!} or click on the individual pictures to go to the item listing. The entire treasury is made up of fabulous supply shops and a great destash section from andreacreates! I've been keeping a little treasury page {over to the right} because it drives me nuts when I look back at a treasury and items are gone and things have moved around. Why do items disappear?? I can't figure it out. :)

I've also been slowly moving forward with my little Etsy shop. Yep, I opened my shop! There's just a few things so far, but I'll be posting more very soon. :) {shop secret: I buy and love my zippers from Zipit! In the treasury!} And I'll be re-doing, or re-arranging, the blog in the next few weeks!

I hope you're having a great week!
