Let's Get Started - My first Blog

Okay - my Blog is "Nevertoolatetohavefun" and thanks to a dear friend, Pat at Birds Nest on the Ground. She is also at and if I ever figure all this out I will link you to her. Her blogs are so inspiring - therefore - I have been inspired. This is my first foray into doing anything artistic that doesn't come with a pattern. Sewing, quilting, embroidery, knitting, crocheting - they all have patterns. Painting and doing mixed media has ideas and then you fly. My goal is to allow others to spread their wings and fly - have a good time - even if you never have before. This is a little ATC card that I started last year in a response to my friend Pat's request to trad. This is one of the 3 I made that is left. Pat got hers last month (no one said you have to rush to have fun). The other one my 6 year old granddaughter Gianni wanted. After explaining to her that she had to make me one to get one - I got one from her entitled "The Red Sea"(upper right). That was the story I told teaching her class in Bible School, so she made the Red Sea with hearts for love. My ATC has a lot of purple, green and feathers because it relates to my fascination with Mardi Gra. I can't tell you how I made this one because mine and Pat's friend Kelley and I worked on them a year ago. I do know that I love to collect feathers and I painted them and used them to press onto the page to give it a little interest.

My dear friend Brenda, let me be the first to say "YOU GO GIRL!" It never really is too late, after all, Grandma Moses was in her 80's when she started to paint. So, good for you......I'll be checking back with you and see what you are doing. (Not that we don't email often!!). And, I think it is great that you are encouraging Will and Gianni to try their artistic wings too. Enjoy it!!! Loveya, Pat
