Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

We all have room to grow, it is just where we choose to spend the energy. I started taking classes from Alisa Burke a while back, they are featured on line and they are amazing. She has such a way with small portable supplies. On a recent trip I brought a small sketch book, a few markers and my watercolor palette.  It was so relaxing to doodle and paint.  When making this painting, I felt that growth in the direction of the types of art that I experiment with should be a new goal.
