art workshop


Today was the first chance I've had to pull out some stamps and paint and play in my new craft studio.  I am not sure what I'm doing, but it sure is fun.  In fact, I am actually feeling brave enough to venture our and try something new.

I just signed up for this art workshop and cannot wait to get my fingers messy with paints.  It is something I have wanted to do for a long time and thought this would be the perfect time to just go for it!

I am so excited.  It doesn't start until the end of the month so that gives me a little more time to experiment with what I have on hand.  With pinterest just a click away, inspiration is easy to find.

When was the last time you pulled out some crafting supplies just for fun?  If it's been a while...I double dog dare you to give it a try!

xo, Patty


  1. I have wanted to pick up some of my cross stitch projects lately. One in particular is one that my Mom started and handed to me to finish. She's been gone just over 2 yrs now and I haven't finished it yet. Sounds like a fun way to spend the day! Lucky you!

  2. I love that your are playing with your art supplies Just Because! I work at Michaels and we host a ton of classes, Employees can take them for free ~ I keep meaning to sign up for a crochet class.. one of these days!
    Have fun creating.

  3. I know you will be inspired and thoroughly enjoy yourself. Good for you. Counting the days to Friday.

  4. That sounds like so much fun...spending time in your new room! The art you created is so pretty! Can you tell me something? And this will seem like a silly question, but I get so overwhelmed by Pinterest. Are there certain search words that you find really helpful for your crafts and art?
    Congrats on your beautiful room Patty!
    Erica :)

  5. I recently decorated a couple of wooden trays, I bought at Michaels, using mod podge. I keep meaning to post them. It was more work than I thought it would be, but loads of fun to do.

    I like what you are doing here.

    :) Hope

  6. It's been a few months..Too busy preparing to move...Miss it..Have fun...Love that box in your first picture..

  7. That's great, Patty! Inspirational.

  8. I have really had fun these past two months exploring mixed media art with my art journal and a form of doodling called Zentangle...both are so relaxing for glad that you are getting in the 'groove' in your new studio. How fun!!

  9. Like what your doing in your new and "FAB" studio! That are class sounds really good too. I'll have to think about that one :0)

  10. How fun Patty. I wish I could paint!!! I am in awe of anyone who can!!!

  11. I'm so excited for you about your art class. I have never been able to paint. I look forward to seeing what you learn.
    Other than fabric crafts, about the only thing crafty I have done in years is scrapbooking, but I haven't even done that since we moved.
    Sounds like having your own space to create back has inspired you to stretch out.

  12. Have fun with your art class, Patty! That's great that you're trying something new. :)

  13. It has definitely been awhile. Hurts when my foot isn't elevated. So maybe soon. Have fun enough for the both of us!

  14. Patty,
    I've been "up to my ears" in craft supplies as we prepare for a booth @ a Fall Festival!!! Instead of feeling pressure to be completed by the quickly approaching deadline...I'm savoring each medium with which I work!!! Enjoy your workshop, dear friend!!!

  15. There is just "something about" a good craft projects that inspires the soul.
