Creative Play Series: Introduction

I want to invite you to come into my "virtual classroom" where we will throw off the things that keep us from creating with abandon and just have some FUN! Here is a quick introduction to the series:

And here are some of the things that I will be using in the first Creative Play Series:

Artist Trading Cards (ATC - 3.5 x 2.5)
Collage Stamps
Perfect Pearls
Mini Mister
Plain Muslin
I-top Brad Maker

Please know you don't have to have all of these things...I am just giving you a heads up in case you want to play along with me.

I have the first class taped - but since I am still on strict doctors orders to limit my time out of bed (while I am working on getting rid of this pneumonia) I will hopefully get that edited tomorrow....So until then, I will tease you with the topic...Tim Holtz's new Distress Stains!

If you are interested in getting a copy of the "I Am an Artist" pledge, please leave me a comment with your email address, and I will be happy to send it to you. If you have a color preference, I have it available in Blue, Gray, Pink, Green and Golden Brown.

Those of you on the East Coast and in the path of Irene, know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. As I was praying for you and the others who are preparing for the storm, I was reminded of one of my favorite stories in the Bible. Jesus was crossing a lake in a boat and fell asleep - while He was sleeping, a HUGE storm came up - and those folks that were in the boat with Him were REALLY frightened. They went and woke Jesus up...and frankly couldn't believe that He was STILL asleep. When Jesus saw the storm He said two words- "Be Still!" And the storm stopped immediately! Very comforting to know that no storm is mightier than God!

Have a good weekend...stay safe and dry - and save a little time for Creative Play!

    I love, love, love to watch you work. I'm so glad you are doing this series to help us all get out of our "Perfectionism" boxes and off to see what we can "Imperfectly" do!!!

    You are so inspiring. I'm trying to keep from running out to Hobby Lobby and buying up all the Tim Holtz stuff they have on hand. I want to wait until this winter when I have more time but you are making the discipline a bit difficult :-)

    I'm praying for you daily and you are in my thoughts frequently as well. I hope this pneumonia thing gets kicked out soon so you can be back to your healthy self :-)

    Love you - Leslie
