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!:)

Unclutter by Using a Quilt!


Do yall have a bunch of t-shirts that have special meaning but you never wear anymore? Tons of wasted space in your closet or drawers? Well, I did!!! All the swag I got from working on costumes with music celebrities...I had so many I never would wear nowadays. I also had messed up t-shirts, shirts, concert shirts I'd been to, along with plays, tourist t-shirts etc. that had darling pics on them that I never wear anymore. Well if you haven't already heard of this, a great way to save those precious memories without throwing them away is to cut out the pics on the shirts, etc...and hand sew them on a quilt. My quilt goes underneath a blanket so you can't see it, but you have a special keepsake! Fortunately a friend gave me an uglyish quilt that I could use and I have been filling it up on the front and back of the quilt for a few years now. That way you have your memories and the piece is a useful and cozy quilt!

  4. This is a really good idea! I know people make T-shirt quilts by cutting squares and fusing the fabric to interfacing - then constructing it like a patchwork quilt, but this is a great way to do it.

    P.S. some of those T-shirts are very cool!
