Although some of us might claim we create for our own satisfaction, it is awfully nice to hear words of encouragement and appreciation. During this last week I silently decided to award this site’s 200th comment with a little mixed media collage. I watched the numbers shamelessly as the counter advanced to 200. Last night […]

May we all find harmony in our own way. Be it from music, chocolate, meditation, art, or a warm bath. Manifested in the body, mind or soul: we think therefore we are. Find other artist’s entries on Harmony at Mixed Media Monday. It’s a good time for harmonious art I think.

This will be the most important election of my lifetime. Bailout, crisis, escalating deficit, financial collapse, lack of pride and faith in the government. Next year…

She eases us gently into winter. Provides splendid colors, yummy squash, and the best holiday of the year. Who doesn’t feel delighted at stepping on the fallen leaves and hearing that satisfying crunch?

Having never worked so small before, I was excited by this weeks Big Art Adventure and I love book projects. WOW, was this hard! I advise anyone unaccustomed to working so small, do not begin with 3x your daily caffeine allotment. (I was celebrating it being Saturday). I love my finished project, but I think […]

…are free to fly. Fly away. I remember during the 1970’s in Colorado, having thrilled at the site of hundreds of Monarch butterflies. This year I’ve only seen one. That makes me a little sad. Seeing butterflies, for me, is a little like finding money on the street. A little thrill and joy lifting my […]

Honest, truthful, open, vulnerable, raw. A wee tiny collage to remind ourselves under the armor, we are all naked. Be kind and gentle.

I am Terry, (the Parental unit) guest hosting on eyembellishments. I want to share what I love for Mixed Media Monday. I am completely enthralled by the paranormal world. Whether it be Ouija boards, tarot cards, psychics, hauntings or reaching out to passed loved ones, I am intrigued. This mixed media collage is composed of […]

With the amazing people out there in this world wide web, life cannot stay dreary for long. It is easy to touch each other with heartfelt words, inspiring creations, life lessons, art lessons, photographs, kindness, humor, and support. All of this through satellites and wires, and yet it still carries the human element of reaching […]

She is capricious and arbitrary: bringing restoration, and pleasant dreams, or torment and frustration. But cool evenings are one of her blessings. She rewards soft comfy flannel sheets underneath heavy duvets and quilts with sweet lullabies. Sleeping weather is around the corner, yippee!

You might think the above collage pertains only to artists: Teachers, landscapers, bakers, stock people at the neighborhood grocery, itinerant farmers, rescue workers, mathematicians, garbage collectors (they make trash disappear from our lives, that is highly magical) rehabilitation therapists, assembly line workers, pediatric nurses, grief counselors, librarians, firefighters (they battle an element!), and so many […]

My journey: begins not with a step, but with a breath. Decisions and experience guide the journey, but events are out of my control. Perhaps it is the will of the universe. Perhaps it chance. How I choose to interpret the events shapes my future and my will. I am always learning, experiencing, hurting and […]

A bowl full of ingredients: some are soft and rounded, others are pointed and sharp. There are sweet flavors as well as sour and salty. It gets stirred up daily and the finished results are never known. Mixed Media Monday’s theme is stars. Stars are like polka-dots for me, I love them. I could do […]

I issue a challenge: promise yourself you will have a positive day. That is not to say your day will be charmed, but that you are willing to see the goodness and beauty behind the daily grime and in any people you encounter. It will be difficult at times, but take deep breaths and refocus […]
