small art~

"Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe. It is not enough that a thing be possible for it to be believed."
small art

I made these pieces of "small art" last night as they will be going around the world along with signed copy's of my book ...
(you can order one here)
one will be traveling all the way to Singapore! how fun is that!?
(I wish I could make a guest appearance in that package!)

"your story"

I must admit that I have not been creative for weeks so making the "small art" was a nice exercise for me to "play"
I think that its important for us to remember to have fun with our self's and never forget the power that "play" has on us.

"Man is most nearly himself when he achieves the seriousness of a child at play."
I have a lot of new ideas but have not had the time to work on them so hopefully in the weeks to come I will be able to make them a reality so I can share them with you all!


“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”

~ Gail Devers

always believe

"We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving. And we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing."

I bought one, I can't wait until Christmas to see mine!!!! I was looking at your blog and told my son I wanted the book and now the great offer with a piece of art, but it wasn't in my budget which I just started. He bought it for me for Christmas!!! Even though I know what it is, I going to wrap it as soon as it arrives that way on Christmas it will be just as exciting to get to flip through your book and look at my art piece. Thanks so much for adding that gift in with the book!

These small pieces have an archeological treasure feel to them. I am SO sad I ordered your book through Amazon and not through your site! Darn! Such a beautiful original could have been mine!
I can't wait for the book to arrive. You are such an inspiration to play and to create.
