Now that I put all that Drama past me, I feel liberated and Grateful.I can create and go back to the reason why I created this Blog in the first place. To create Art, to talk about what I love the most: MY FAMILY and to show the treasures (Life and Thrift) I find along the way.
When I was a little girl, my Mother had a friend that loved putting pretty package together . Nothing crazy, just simple. She would use buttons, scraps, ribbons and ephemera.. I would never want to open it because I didn't want to ruin the beautiful presentation. I remember thinking, its all about the giving and presentation. Unless I am in a hurry, I usually try to wrap a gift a certain way. I thank her for making me pay attention to detail. Thank you Mrs. Ruben.
I started scrap-booking 7 years ago when my Daughter was born. If it wasn't for a great on-line community like Two Peas in a bucket and all the Scrapbook Artists I would have never been so interested in Paper Arts like I am now. Thank you Two Peas and those amazing Scrapbook Artists that inspire me!
If it wasn't for my Family.. I wouldn't have a reason to want to create all of those Scrapbooks, Art Journals and those silly books I like to create. Thank you Sweet Family.
If it wasn't for Those amazing Art/Stamp/Scrapbook Stores and the beautiful ladies that own them, I would have never had the opportunity to Teach my crazy Art (Art family cannot understand).. Thank you Ladies from Frenzy Stamper, Stampotique, Mystic Paper, Paper Tales .
Also my On line Art friends that inspire me, do Art with me and love to Swap with me...... you make it all so fun . Thank you! And to my Etsy customers... Thank you for your business... I am grateful. Really.
I wanted to share a couple of Valentines Art I have done.. Here is one for my Living room and one that hangs in my Daughters room:
Thank you again for coming back, not just for the Drama and for your support!-hugs Lilia
