Etsy Shop is Open for Business!

I am so excited to have finally launched my Etsy shop!! This is something I have had on my To-Do list since this summer, but in all reality it was most likely in the back of my mind for a few years now.

I have listed a bunch of my canvases. I even uploaded some without words, you can tell me what you would like on them!

Let me know what you think, and I hope you will pass the word on for me!!

keep calm and get your craft onyou are the closest thing.. magiccanvascanvas

Welcome! to

Almost 12 years ago I purchased as a grad gift to myself… I’ve actively used it for my email address, but thats about it. Life happened, there never seemed time to build my own page- and even though i have been blogging since 2005, it was just easier to use Well folks… that is all changing! With my new position at Providence College.. one of my “tasks” is to learn wordpress, which in return has helped bring alive! I am SO excited to finally be using my little space on the net. Excited to have gotten the site this far, but I can promise you… more is to come! So… hold on, sit back… and enjoy, (would love to hear what you think :) )

I have updated my class page- you can see it in the tab above. I have some fun card classes coming up, and hop to see some of my “peeps” soon!!

I have spent the last few long weekends getting a lot done in my studio space. I love working in there, it’s just finding the motivation and time to get in there. I am also happy to announce I finally have opened my etsy shop! I have quite a few completed canvases posted, and some waiting for your unique quote. I also take custom orders – you get to choose the size, colors, and quote… just contact me. I hope you will spread the word on my fun new shop :)

More creative posts coming soon, I have a TON to share… i’m so excited!!!

Note: be sure to update your bookmarks, and blog readers, this is where my blog is going to live from now on!!
