A Giveaway and "Let your Art Light the Way"

Happy Monday Everyone!!

Here are some new trinkets that have kept my MIND busy lately..I actually started some of these a while back,but like most things of value,the art of CREATION cannot be rushed.It comes only when one is truly OPEN to the idea of EMPTINESS...filling itself with colors, texture,sound and taste.When I find myself in a pickle,unable to finish what I started,..I simply leave it alone for a while,until at emptiness has been filled,my mind becomes CLEAR and acute..and I can see the light.. with NEW eyes.

"Let your Art Light the Way" Magnet

"Discover All The Possibilities" Hanging Circuit Board

And so it Begins" Beeswax ACEO Art Card

Now for this months Giveaway..I am really having FUN with these cuff bracelets..and for you my sweet FRIENDS I am offering a new cuff named "Gratitude".Created by STITCHING layers of fabric,muslin and felt.Plus beads and a metal tag created by me.This cuff fits up to 8"

All you have to do is leave me a comment,and please put a comment on your blog so I can spread the word about the Giveaway.I will announce the winner on the 5th of July.

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

Love it Cat! I love them all. I made a clock out of computer parts and it is in my studio. I keep saying I am going to get busy and do some creating but I just keep working on my house. I hope you are enjoying the kids !


Kass said...

Love all your stuff.


Cat, that bracelet and the box with the light in it are so clever and fun. I think for artists life is always altered someway.

Art is only art if you share it with others and we love the way you share on your blog.

I can't wait to get that bracelet. Tee hee hee.

Hi Cat,

Love your new textile cuffs!!! Amazing! Of course I am hoping on with winning, but even if I don't, I will be shopping for one in the near future. Already posted this on my blog. I am headed for New Mexico to see my folks tomorrow but wanted to make sure this was up on my blog before leaving tomorrow. Have a wonderful 4th of July, my friend. Also added little Joshua's blogspot on the post...hoping he will have some possible bites!

I am always totally at awe at the talent everyone has. Sometimes I wish I could spend 24 hours a day just reading everyone's blogs and soaking up their work. Your cuff is great. Love your Beeswax ACEO "And so it Begins."
