I love what I do ~

Wife, mama, mimi, artist....I really do love it all!
I love making things and finally finished something new ~
I'm calling this mixed media collage
"The beauty of their dreams"
The quote I featured is my favorite ~
If you're interested, it's been added to the shoppe.

I love new bloggers....well I love most all bloggers
but I love having new friends join our community, don't you?
There's more love, more inspiration and more friendship all around!
And please don't forget, if you are reading this blog....
and you've been toying with the idea of starting your own,
DO IT!!! is free and it's such a sweet place to be...

I recently met Penny of At Home in English Valley
and would love for you to stop by
when you can to say hello!!!

Another new blogger I've "met" is Laura of Just for Luv....
please stop by and welcome her as well!!

And I discovered Michelle at Michelle's Folly....
I'm so glad you're here blogging too!

Shari of Plays with Paper is celebrating her 101st Post with a giveaway HERE!!!

Hello Dawn! I have been following you now for about 2 weeks and I so love your art and your work. Come on over when you can and see my world. I am a writer, illustrator and a dabbler in mixed media. I make my own books and theatres; give it a whirl sometime and come to CASTLES CROWNS AND COTTAGES!

Have a lovely day, Anita

Good Morning Dawn!

Your collage is amazing (as usual) and my heart just fluttered when I saw it! I love when you post about what you made...your talent just makes me want to go sit in my room and create something beautiful. The only problem mind goes blank when I leave your site! Can you come play with me? haha

Love the new bloggers too Dawn. You are right, this is such a happy place to be!

Again, thank you for all of your beauty and make the blogging world SHINE!
Have yourself a wonderful LONG holiday weekend Dawn :)))

Absolutely amazing post you talented Chickie! I love the layering & all the different elements in that collage. Perfect for BH. Is that the 'findings' stuff from hob lob around the frame? Yeah, thanks for turning me onto that jewelry line at Michael's. Wish I could mix & match it. Lisa

Your collage is your most beautiful artwork, Dawn. I love the creamy look to it. Thanks so much for the info on new bloggers!


Vee said...

Dawn, that turned out beautifully! I can just see a recent graduate receiving this. Alas, I have no recent graduates. Yes! I do love new bloggers, old bloggers, bloggers of all sorts. It really does keep the inspirations flowing. And you, my dear, are such an encourager to us all!

Hi Dawn,
I LOVE your new collage! Beautiful. I think of you every time I look up from my work table at my "Sweet Home of the Little Birds" Collage I won at the retreat. It's so special to me!

Talking of new bloggers, I still feel like there is so much more to learn, but it's so much fun. Come see my new Banner I made...I've changed the look of my blog a bit.
Have a Blessed Day Dawn!

Rustique Gal said...

The collage is perfect Dawn. I love all that you do, but this piece is really special. I know that you put a lot of love into what you do and the many hats you wear. I am inspired by you sweet friend.
I think I will go meet some of your new friends now. Have a wonderful weekend!

Anne Lorys said...

I love spending my time over here, I adore everything you do.

I would love to just sit and create with you, I can soooo! relate to your passion in the art that you create, it's a beauitful journey in deed!!


Unknown said...

Precious Dawn,
If only I could express how much this post meant to me through comment! YOU are an answer to prayer. Thank you so much for your love and kindness. I was feeling a little back and forth with my blog...trying to make sure I have the right motives with it. I want to glorify God, while making new wonderful friends (like you!), and post about all the different things I love. I was praying about it, and took a break from blog-land yesterday. When I came on today, you and another precious blogger (Traci@BeneathMyHeart) did posts about my blog! Is God good or what?! It totally reassured me that what I'm doing on here is GOOD and God will direct me to wonderful people like you, as long as I am always keeping Him first. Again, can't tell you how much this meant to me. Thank you, friend! :-)
So much love,

Debbie Doughty said...

Love your collage and the other art you shared today. I can't wait to visit the blogs you've shared today as well.

Thespoena McLaughlin said...

What a completely wonderful collage full of lovely layers and just the right touch of rust. I'm in love! If only there were more hours in the day that weren't being used for distraction we could all get more creating done. Thanks also for added a link to my giveaway, you are so sweet. I've had several people come by and see me that came from you. Hope your weekend is a good one. Have a very happy day!

Hey Sweetie! Wow Oh' Wow. You're creations just blow me away every time. I don't even know how to explain how I feel about them. They are all something you'd never tire of looking at. They look so genuinely old and authentic. Your talent is so unique!

Thanks for coming by I've missed you lately. Of course a comment from you makes me so proud. You should see how blown up I am now. hee-hee. I'm feeling a lot better, thanks, except for that 65 comment I can't get out of my head. Ha-ha.

Have a sunny, fun weekend. xxoo's...Tracy :)
