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.

Living the Artful Life

Surrounding myself with my art supplies is always inspiring. I love interior decorating and design. Looking at houses decorated in modern simplistic lines, to eclectic vintage rooms gets my creativity flowing.  In my home however, I find that I don't really have a style. Not quite modern, certainly not minimalistic, not pottery barn nor vintage, not eclectic or colonial, not shabby chic or cottagelike.  I tend to surround myself with my art supplies. I love looking at them and the bright colors always put me in a good mood. I enjoy being able to see my art work mixed amongst those that I admire most. Months back I featured these shelves bare. They were made from shelves that were used at the Rug Works in cross village that has since closed. Mike's unique vision, flipped them on their side, and he added an addition. These shelves are one of my most treasured pieces of furniture....and whatever the style they are, they are mine to treasure.
