Well the above title is my theme for 2012 this year.  I have these themes each year because it just helps me focus on what I think is important for that year and what I want to bring out within myself........accompanied by an alcohol of choice to help celebrate these great occasions of course!.

I am really late posting this blog because life is just crazy busy sometimes between Facebook, the world of mixed media, working, cleaning, family etc etc.  Even though this is a waaaaay late blog post, I want to put this on my blog because I am so happy that I got to meet a lady who's art I have long admired.

I first "discovered" images of Denise's paintings about 4/5 years ago. It was a few years after I had taken up painting again after a long hiatus. I loved Denise's use of vibrant colours and the fun and joy that exudes from her paintings and was something in line with what I was doing and where I hoped to be one day.  Well I printed a few pics out (permission recently obtained...woops!) stuck them on my desk at work and when I wished I was painting or in a happier place I looked at those pictures.  I thought if someone is out there making art their lives why can't I?.....WHY CAN'T I???? WHY CAN'T I??? 

I cannot tell you how many times I looked at those paintings for inspiration, motivation and hope.......they have travelled to many a desk I have worked at and are now on my board at home....still right in front of me!

Well, I finally got to meet this beautiful lady I long admired and she is just the loveliest, warmest, giving and wonderful tea making lady you could meet!!!!..........and she can be sooo funny too! I have done several classes with her now and always take away a little something new or a phrase and great memories.  Denise has a wonderful website so if you are interested in any of her "Creativitea" classes or her artwork, go to

Now I don't make money out of my art, I just do it because it gives me great inner peace but it doesn't mean I don't aspire to one day...cause that would be awesome!!!

In the meantime thanks Denise for coming into my life and making it just a little shinier!!!! 

Below are some pics of mixed media paintings I have done at her classes.
Listen to your heart!

Trust your intuition
Listen to your heart above all other voices.

HOOOO's Coming for Tea?
