Check out The new way of learning Art with a Childrens Paint Lab book!!

Hello sweet souls !!!
 I am so thrilled to be featured in this new book by Stephanie Corfee!! My little bird sculpture was indeed made from "the kitchen sink" per say...! 
Actually it was created from the items on my design studio desk! Lol 


In Making this type of Art,...here is the secret tip!! Look through the eyes of a child!!! Yes!! 
 I have always included that element of "letting the chips falls where they may " 
It's called The Serendipity of Believing it will just happen! Right? 
We all know that this really brings a level of TRUTH and JOY to an artwork !


             "I want to Learn again 
                     to paint like a child"- 

That is what keeps things interesting and adds that element of surprise! 
-It's what makes your mind look closer.. At the art... And the details..!
What happens:
-it places one object next to another that tells a story that is begging to be written ! 
-it lets relationships be born... On the canvas, artwork.. Or Life!!! 

Available on Amazon this book is full of so many other incredible artists !! I am thrilled to hold space with them all!! 

This is going to be a classic to keep on your bookshelf! Because you never know where inspiration will strike and how you will be searching for it! 


           "Trying to find the most 
           creative inner child in all
                       Of us! "
Please join me and these other FANTASTIC artists in welcoming this book to your home and heart ... Xoxoxox 
*giggles included for free!! 
A blog hop and *give away are in the works so stay tuned!!! Whoo hoo!!!

Keeping it real...the REAL organizing method

   Every day I wake up and try to think about what I could do that would make a statement of life or a statement of joy to someone Else! 
I need to go through my collections...I need to go through my piles of art supplies ... and only keep the things that I can still use or be helpful to me in the future (or bring me Joy) 
Does anybody else go through this ? 

I get excited about something and then I get everything that I need to go with it and I make a little bit of it and then I'm like "squirrel "..I get bored..and then I move onto the next project ! Lol
Sewing
Painting
Gardening
100s of things.. 

Sometimes I feel like I am filling a hole by making art... it really helps me get in touch with my feelings. And
I'm currently reading the famous organizing Kon Marie book..
 But but but..
.... I'm at a standstill... 
It's not that I dont Want to do it.. 
Im just exhausted by the THOUGHT of it! 
The clothes were a big deal... 
I did it.. Done.. Check mark ...
But now I'm on to the books and magazines.. And I just LOVE them soooo much!! 
This will be hard.. But I'm moving forward.. Trying at least.. 
Here is what I would rather be doing;


I'd rather make a movie as an art project.. 
Or watercolor paint for 9 hrs straight.. 
Or actually READ for an entire week! 
(That's an idea!!) 
I'm a super duper procrastinator ...I admit it… Maybe Mondays just arent meant to clean and purge.. right?

See yah later.. This is what's in front of me.. I'm diving in! To enjoy!! Xoxox Kiki

These are The colors of Her life...

Someone told me the other day... Vanessa, you are the "real thing" 
I will take that as a compliment ! 
I just want to create! 
BIg!! 
Where will that dream take me?
A light filled space 
Somewhere 
To make magical people swoon!
To use the creative gifts I have for that purpose!
Ok Lord.. It's YOUR plan.. I'm just along for the ride! 
Xoxox 
KIKi








These are up for auction right now over at my facebook page! 







Waiting to be sold... :)




Be joyful!
