The Crafty Chica Guest Curator
Okay, I’m going to be honest. I’m writing this in 100% stream of consciousness format. That is so unlike me ...


Evette is a crafty Latina who is so clever, resourceful, artful and knows the coolest people ... like this jewelry designer who uses her wearable pieces to tell a story.


I love Diana's blog because she always starts off with a quote and her
take on the meaning, and then
ties a project into it as well.
This is one of my favorites.

Pretty Parisian
Embellishing Ribbon.

into every piece.
  Scrumptious graphics.

Kathryn Antyr Guest Curator
Art saved me.
Art gave me a voice.
Art gave me a safe place to explore my feelings and dreams.
Art gave me confidence.
Art revealed my authentic self. ...

Lunch has never looked so pretty.


Make your own Japanese
bento style lunch.


From my creative son to yours.


Cindy Forrester Guest Curator

Artwork and metal combined.   KC Willis shares her abundant wealth of knowledge on marketing your art.   Spring is here and I just love this strawberry
freezer jam recipe.
