Day 20 of My 30 Day Creativity Challenge … I didn’t really create anything new today. Well, I take that back … I spent some time today working on some paintings and cards I already had. Playing, adding layers, enjoying myself. My paintings are a lot like me. I’m the same, yet I’m different. I …

Day 8 of my 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. Magic wands for the extension of my own magic! And a little potpourri for my creative space. (There were NO owls harmed in the making of these wands.)
