SweetArt Line created for Holiday Market
Hi!! It's been a while since we last talked. I have been busy in my studio creating my SweetArt Line for the Holiday Market here in Montgomery in October. Wendy Martorana,my sweet friend and owner of Candle Cabin will be hosting a booth with my SweetArt Line and other fabulous gifts and ideas for Christmas. You will not want to miss!
I love this piece. This is one of my pieces created for my SweetArt  line.  I am really excited about this line. Each piece is different and has its own personality. Each one has a text as well. Adding the text is always the last part of the art process because I spend a lot of time thinking about what I want to say. I so want the thought to be personal and stir some sweet spot in your soul. This piece says "Will you be my valentine everyday?" I eat up the word "valentine" It might as well be spelled L-o-v-e, and love everyday? Well that's a pretty cool thing. "Valentine" also makes me think of "holiday." If you were to ask my family what my most favorite word is they would all say without question...Holiday! I do love holidays, but what I really live for is the feeling you have when you are on holiday. Not the "sweat over the meal" feeling, but the one that makes you feel relaxed and indescribably happy. The feeling where there are no phones or TVs, just family and fun!! I love it!!! I have hired a friend to help me put together my blogs and website and create a fabulous place online for you to visit me and my studio. She asked me the name of my studio and I said "The Holiday Studio..where everyday is a holiday."Of course. I can hardly wait for it to be finished so you can drop by any time and look around my studio or visit me in the kitchen for a diet coke and ice cream or watch a tutorial and craft along with me. Such a wild adventure for me and I am so excited about you taking it with me.
So until then, make everyday a holiday. Share a smile with someone, make a "happy" for a friend for no reason, or my favorite, make heart shaped biscuits for your family for dinner tonight. Before you know it "Holiday"will be your favorite word too!!
