Dollar Store Crafts
I love this project because in NYC, you can find these for free, at the curb of most Manhattan offices. And how fun is it to paint it up and make it look new, right? Heather Mann's blog is awesome, and I love cheap creative projects. Art should always be about making art, not buying a product.

 

Everyday is a Holiday
Pink hair, and cupcakes, what more could you ask for? I'm happy to know Jenny personally, and love her "baked goods" theme in her artwork. And I love that she creates with her husband. How romantic, love can be. Her blog and the pictures she posts are so inspiring!

I have always felt the need to create something. My mother and father were both artists. There was a lot of creativity going on in my house everyday: painting, sewing, knitting, decopauging, candle making, cooking, making paper art, wood carving, playing music, and singing. So much creativity I guess I did not realize ...

Glitter your floors! Yes. This blog post makes me wish I didn't live in a NYC apartment, with no space. Kathy is such a true Sagittarian with her bubbly personality, and her inspiring art projects.
