Changes lead to challenges…

Hello all,

Well, life is little scary and unsettling right now with the COVID-19 Pandemic.  Staying home is something we must do right now and it sure isn’t easy on anyone.   I have been encouraged by the positive stories about how people are coping and helping others.  It is truly inspiring!

With several art festivals already being cancelled for this summer,  I thought I would explore selling my art work on line.  So, I have finally got my Original Art Work page up and running on the Lori’s Cards & Creations Website.

Here are the 3 new pieces that I just uploaded for sale.

I find that keeping my mind busy with projects is comforting during times of stress and uncertainty.   Sometimes I can be creative and other times I just need busy work.  Do you know what I mean?

Hoping that you and your family are keeping safe and healthy.

Happy day,

Craft in Weekend with Reuse Materials

Hello all,

How are you spending your “stay at home” time this weekend?  Since I can’t spend my time with my family and grandkids,  I plan on having a marathon crafting weekend.  Hoping it will keep me from going stir crazy.

The project below was done with reuse and recycled materials from Creative Octopus, my local creative reuse and recycle center.  I purchased a couple of collage kits (from their online order and curb pick up service) and challenged myself to create something using these reuse materials.

Check out the step by steps in the Mixed Media Quick Tips Video below.

Take care!
