I love, love, love that I have a creative outlet --and I don't just mean the ability to create my own art or snap cool pictures...but I have this world that I can escape too...a world with other creative people. You know, creative people speak their own language, I'm convinced of it! And I don't say that to be snobby --I'm not one of "those" artists, but it's true...we speak a beautiful language through our work. We make people feel different emotions and even empower people. I am very much honored to have had others tell me that I my art has moved them or empowered them to be more expressive about their own feelings. I too have an artist who moves me the same way and she moves me like NO OTHER artist does. Her name is Kelly Rae Roberts and I am guilty of owning a lot of of Kelly Rae canvases and other little muses. This weekend I spent a day with one of my creative gal-pals, Deb. We did an all day at The Crafty Scrapper and had lunch at the Dove's Nest. While there I decided to pick up a few Kelly Rae items for my studio. :D These are some of the first KR items because I keep most of my Kelly Rae collection at work. But it's time I bring her inspiration into my home. It's overdue!
First and foremost is this piece right here. It is an 18"x32" canvas. I HAD to have it...it says "Dreamer" and well, that's a very special nickname for me. :D
This is another canvas that I also decided to keep in studio. This is an 8"x12" "Fearless" canvas.
And I couldn't pass up the "Fearless" journal! How else am I going to write about all of the fears I am overcoming in my life? ::BIG SMILE::
I also bought two Big Girlie dolls...one is for me...
(don't just dream big --DREAM BIGGER!)
And the other one is for my mom. :D
While at the Dove's Nest I also came across this notebook that just happened to say "Dreamer" --uhhhh, hello, clearly I had to have it!
And just for Marion --this is just a preview of the inside. There's different pages inside. :)
Hope you enjoyed all of my new playthings!
