About Me

My photo

I am a mom to one teenager, 2 basset hounds, and a mini schnauzer. I am an artist! Creating things gives me joy that I wish everyone could experience. If you think you are an artist then you are! Everyone should try something creative! I can't even put in to words how great art of any form is for the soul!
 
I enjoy crafting, reading, wine tastings, watching old movies, playing video games! There are so many things that I love to do and many more that I want to try!

My first blog post!

I have been wanting to start a blog for some time, but I have been afraid of whether or not I could actually do a blog and if people would even like what I  post. Today I finally decided that I will not let fear stop me. So here is my first blog post! Please excuse my humble beginning in to blogging. I am not very computer savvy, so I still have a lot to learn.
 
 
 

Be Happy 
 
 
This is a page from my altered journal/sketchbook. The man on the right is my grandfather when he was a young man. Since his passing I use many of his images in my artwork. The title of my blog "Apple of my eye creations" is what he used to tell me I was whenever he talked with me. It is only fitting that a man that gave me so much be the center of my first blog post. I love you Gramps!

    Your fist post is wonderful. I love your journal page. It is always extra special when artists use images from their own family. I love the background as well as your endearing men.
