Creative Spaces

  It's here!  My amazingly talented friend Megan Hoeppner put together this fabulous publication and she was sweet enough to include my craft space to be featured.  You really need to pick up this magazine... worth EVERY SINGLE CENT!  There are so many fun and creative ideas from so many talented people.

I was going to share a picture of the "before" of my craft space, but I couldn't find it... it was very scary and needed updating.  I started the transformation about a year ago and I am happy with the results... so if you want to see my space go pick up a copy of Creative Spaces.  You will not be dissappointed!

So it's pretty obvious that I have completely abandoned my blog way back in April of 2012.  I am still creating things, but I have decided that Instagram has been a much easier way to go about showcasing my art/crafts... so if you are interested, please follow me on Instagram.  My user name is alittlesparklegirl.  Please follow me and say "hi".  Hope to hear from you soon!

Chocolate Birthday Cake

I love all the cute little cake buntings that I have been seeing everywhere and decided to make one for my Mom's birthday cake.  I love how it turned out.  Happy Birthday Mom!  Love you!

I used some paper straws and baker's twine and some scraps of paper that I had sitting around.  I may have to make more of these!

Spring Wreath

I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided that I needed to give it a try.  Here is my attempt at the coffee filter wreath.
 I love how it turned out!  I think it screams Spring and I am starting to get the itch for Spring.  I am ready for warm, sunny weather.

It was easy and fun to make.  I started and finished it all in one day.  I am guessing that it took a total of 4 hours (not including drying time.) 
I actually made this for a Pinterest party that I am going to so I will not get to keep this wreath for myself.  Don't worry though, I already have plans to make another on just for me! ;)

Valentine Girl Collage Art

The house was quiet today while my baby napped and my girls were off to school.  I didn't feel like doing laundry so I decided to play.  I had such a blast putting together this 11 x 17 collage canvas.

Available in my etsy shop.

Children's Art Classes

I have been having so much fun preparing and organizing classes that I will be teaching.  I have decided to get back into teaching art classes for kids.  I taught a couple of classes a few years ago and now that my own kids are more interested in art, I decided it would be fun to let other kids in on the fun too.

This flower is a painting by my 4 year old daughter.   I love art done by kids.  It is always so expressive.
I have started a blog for my art classes where I can show off my students' art.  Come on over to see what we are up to!
