About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

Covering a Big Box (Tip)

I just had an order for a mermaid mobile. I only had one box that it would fit in, so I decided to cover it with beautiful colored paper, & over & over again, it just looked awful. Smaller boxers never gave me problems. So I got torn pieces of the brown paper you use to ship in, and made a camouflage over the entire box including the inside using a glue gun! It turned out awesome! I then braided a rafia string and wrapped it around the box into a bow and put a knot on each end and spread out the rafia on the ends as well. So if you are ever in a dilemma, I promise you, what a delightful way to make your box look professional! I wish I had taken a photo of it, but it had to go in the mail ASAP!
