Create Everyday is a motto I live by. Be it something creative in the studio, gardening, cooking something up in the kitchen or styling my home. Everyday I have something to look upon to show for my creative actions. There is always time – Create time if you create nothing else in a day. Create your day – everyday!
Christmas presents reveled. This year a group of the Lovely Lula girlfriends met out for some holiday cheer and we exchanged handmade gifts. I made each of my friends and lovely little painting with words that I felt reflected where each individual is currently at in her life. I wanted to mark this time by noting it in paint.Â Here are the paintings that now live in my girlfriends homes. Ready forÂ a new year!
The Art Resource Center (ARC) helps any non-profit to facilitate their art needs.
The ARC has saved thousands of pounds of waste from going to our landfills by collecting materials. When a teacher calls and says they are a new hire but the classroom is empty we fill the shelves with art supplies. When volunteers from March of Dimes want to do a special project we help with ideas and send them away with supplies. When Head Start needs tactile fabrics and inspiration for young minds we are the ones they come to for help. When a homeless artist walks through the door we give her paints and canvas and brushes.
The ARC touches well over 20,000 lives a year and our reach into the community and around the state is growing annually.
Please consider supporting the work of the ARC. Your dollars are needed to increase our space, build a gallery for recycled art exhibits and to offer classes to the community and so that we can be self sustaining.
If everyone on in our network donated $25 we would reach our 2015 goal and fulfill our dreams.
THE ARC is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit your donation is tax deductible.

Thank you and may you have the happiest of holiday seasons,
My lovely friend T celebrated her birthday recently and hosted her own party with a shoe theme. The night was filled with ladies, champagne, good food and all things shoes. In honor of the event I created a painting for her using the theme. I also made a companion card to go along with the art. It was a fun project!
