One World One Heart!

Ostrich Girl

  • Four different bookmarks or gifttags each with a print of an original painting done by me.
  • The kitty is one of my original hand sculpted ornaments.
  • The red birdies are signed and they are one of my orginal watercolors
  • The soft sculpture is a cupcake I made that doubles as a pin cushion
  • Behind it all is one of my "Marrionette Girl" screen printed T-shirts.

This is how I feel when I haven't finished my daily hopes of what I want to do and when I can't figure something out on my computer and when I have heard Mom,Mo-oooom (my daughter says it in two syllables and with lots of super fun attitude) Mommy or Momma yelled just one too many times through my house! It's so nice that they are all in bed now.It is so true how angelic( and quiet) they are when they sleep. Can't they sleep just a little more? Five kids? What a continual circus!Life is crazy and full and fun!

.Most of the time I wish I could still live in the tutu I never wanted to take off as a child.I know that I am just a little girl trapped in an adults body.Whenever I get the chance to wear a petticoat or a tutu I still do.As " Phantom of the Opera" plays in the back ground, I can remember all those times of ballet class and dancing in front of a mirror dreaming of the stage. Fortunatley I have the best crazy girlfriends that "get it"! I love all things feminine and nothing could replace those amazing connections with all my girly friends! I hope every one out there has the connections to people you love that inspire you, encourage you, and "get you"!

We' ve all grown up and wished for that happily ever after only to find that portions of our life are spent in a nightmare. Creating is as healing as any therapy offered out there. I hope everyone can look back at any nightmares that you have lived through and just let it be fodder for your work.Thank God for paint and clay and wood and fabric and pencils and ink and wire and plaster...and a sound mind...need I go on?

Do you ever just have one of those days that you wake up and you just know everything is going to go right?Today is that day for me.I am getting things created in the middle of organizing my art supplies and taking care of my toddlers at the same time! How? Why isn't everyday this great? I don't know, but I just had to drop a little note to anyone who is waiting for that day to say,if it can happen in my crazy ,chaotic, rollercoaster of a life that ,yes, it will come to you soon! I pray blessings and creativity on everyones day!!! xoxoxox Sheri

Time to....

The New Year is here and I am hoping that everyone out there has the time and energy to create all the ideas that are taking up space in their mind .I don't make" Resolutions" but I am going to work toward better time management for the new year.Time management and a disorganized house seem to be the things I struggle with the most. I have enough art supplies in my home that I could open a store but so many times I can't find what I need and I wind up just buying more.I don't feel completely guilty about this as it's stuff I always wind up using eventually.There is an element of time wasted though having to go to the store and rebuy something that I KNOW I already own.Time to go and attempt to organize ....something,anything and then get to work!
