As some of you know, I took the 31 Day Blog Challenge a in April and I did pretty well in the beginning, but as the days started to add on, I fell behind. I learned alot and used many of the assignments in this blog. I am still working on a few things- a landing page, joining forums/groups that are related to my niche and a few other things.
But luckily there's a workbook available. Now I can work at my own pace and not feel pressured to accomplish a task daily.
The collaboration between Tara Davis and I was featured again in her 2009 Spring Trunk Show. The collection was showcased in the Charlotte Observer - Style section this week. We are working on featuring another piece of my artwork for the fall collection. More details to come.
Last night I was surfing the web and decided to check out Randel Plowman's blog. Randel Plowman is a collage artist who lives in Northern Kentucky. His blog is based on an ongoing project that involves creating and posting a new 4" x 4" collage to his site every day.
I was immediately inspired to work on a few simple small collages. I worked into the late hours creating 8 collages. These collages are themed around a 1973 Ebony magazine. I had lots of fun creating these collages and I think I going to use them in a greeting card set. They are sorta funny and inspirational at the same time.
Ali Edwards has done it again. She has posted a list of 5 ways to work through your creative fears.
What are we afraid of in our creative lives?

Although we just celebrated Mother's day this weekend, I really felt a strong desire to spend and talk with my dad. You seem to missed those you love in the oddest times. I ran across this quote today and it made me think of my dad.
