ARE YOU HUNGRY?




Are you hungry? Ha! Me too. But not to worry. I have a delicious page on Facebook 'Two Crazy Chicks and a Spatula' and there's constant yumminess going on over there! Lots of variety too. I cook whatever comes to mind, and even though I try to lean to the healthy I do have a tendency to ride the fence sometimes LOL. Amy cooks Paleo and let me tell you, you'd never know it was paleo if we didn't tell you. It tastes that good!!! Come by and check it out and like our page :-) And get some good tips, recipes and more. You can also share your own goodness!

Under the Full Moon!

Ok, I'm a grateful chick and I gotta tell you, I have every reason to be! I'm alive, I got love, I'm an Artist...I have connections with so so many fabulous people, including you if you're reading this LOL.

Anyway, recently I was fortunate enough to hook up with some creative people from a whole different genre of Art and I'm having more fun than a Diva in a Glitter store!!

When asked to create some unique items for Full Moon Series I was challenged, honored and on go!!! Creative energy activated, by the power of Mighty Artists....GO! Ok sorry, LOL I get so pumped. Here are some pics of a few of the items I created.

You can find out more about the Full Moon Series line of Sexy, Imaginative and Creative Vampire books on Amazon at Full Moon Series Books or searching P. Mattern or visit their FB page at
Full Moon Series Info for fun, contests, reading and more! Always jumping...or biting!

While visiting make sure to stop in on Fang Tastic. Supporting Creative Authors with contests, information, marketing and more! And the Contests are awesome! :-) Yaaaaay fun!

Art and You!

You may have heard me talking about Art as a healing tool many times. And still I stand by that. You may not pay much attention but if you do you will realize Art is all around you. Nature paints a new picture everyday! People, movement, right now, right in front of you, the colors, the plants, ok you get the point. Art has been my go to medicine since I was a small child and I'm pretty sure it will see me out of here.
 
There are tools at your disposal that can open you up to a whole new world of Art. Like your phone. Honestly not a day goes by that I don't take pictures. Something always catches my eye, a bird, a tree, a meal... something. Sites that once you pass them up you may never see them again. And for that minute or three while you're gazing upon whatever it is... you have given your senses a breather, a break from whatever they were focused on previously. Seriously, try it. Bring color in. Maybe in small doses...don't freak yourself out...you'll want more and more until you just can't stop yourself.  It will make you smile and even when creating, it's okay to come up with some funky stuff. That's what Art is all about. There is no such thing as perfect Art. Fine Art is a perception as I was told by a Gallery once. It's what you consider Fine Art. Perfect lines, circles and squares are ok for some, but if you really want to bring it in, go for it, be loose and spontaneous. If something doesn't work out in your mind, put it to the side and start on something else. Just the time you spend doing that will have given you a distraction from what ails you LOL. See!
 

 I found this Art outside my bedroom window, just sitting there in the sky!



And by the way, Art comes in all forms, Cooking, Dancing, Drawing, Dreaming, taking Pictures, you name it!
Have an Artful day!

Card Carrying Artist!

 
 
Ok I admit it. I'm a Card Carrying Artist! My fallback Art. My whole lotta healing in a 5 x 7 space. Its a fact that all Creative people at some point or other fill up. We tend to be so emotional and passionate that when we go at it we go hard and when we stop, we stop hard. I don't like the term 'block' because I don't think it's a block, I just think there's an overload and we need time to download. Which is why I always suggest Artists do the same thing, just on a smaller scale when they reach that point. For me it's cards. And this really goes for any Creative Spirit. Taking time to breathe allows for rejuvenation and recreation.

Surrender Doubt -Art Journal Project


The best thing about healing with color is obviously the affect it has on you. As with most things you are passionate about and focused on it tends to lend light to painful moments. Start a page in your Journal with the intent of sitting there until it's done. You may not finish it but the time you spent trying to became your own and your focus shifted to something colorful and relaxing. Simple but true!


 For info on my workshops, projects and more write me at diviacity@gmail.com or leave a comment with your email. Have a happy peaceful colorful day! Yaaaay! :-)

An Apple A Day!

 It might surprise you to know that I create an Art piece a day. Sometimes tiny, sometimes huge. Reason, because I believe 'An Art Piece A Day Helps Keep The Negative Away!' As most Creative Spirits and Artists know we are very passionate people. And as such we tend to neglect ourselves for the Creative Good! Art makes me smile and smile some more so I use it as my Apple a Day.


 Whether it be Journaling, Doodling, Sketching, Sewing, Woodworking or just plain ol' breaking out the Art Bag whatever Creative Energy Drives you, Drive it Back!


We all tend to let the hectic side of life push us away from our passions and Dreams so it's most important to keep some sort of connection to that passion going.


 Remember, Life is too short and too long to not live it doing what you love! That is all! :-)

deYoung Museum and Art by the Gun (Literally!)

I recently had the utmost pleasure of visiting the deYoung Museum in San Francisco. Absolutely nothing sparks the creative fires like witnessing your passion from the inside out. Seeing who started it, how, what they used, why they did it. The main attraction (the reason we went) was the Masters of Venice exhibition. There were moments when all I could do was stare in awe. The processes used to create these wonders are amazing and remember they didn't have one iota of the tools and products we do now. Unfortunately they didn't allow photos in that Area of the Museum but follow the link above to learn more.

However, of course I did take hundreds of photos when I could LOL.

While I was totally in awe of what came before it was this exhibit that stunned me most! Spine and Tooth of Santo Guerro by Al Farrow. A Church made of totally Guns, Bullets, Bones and well see for yourself. I can't explain my reaction because I'm still processing it. It's truly the most unusual but I'm sure there's so much more behind it and research is needed. So here are the pics I got.










 Yes that is a spine in the above pic!


It's a beautiful Museum and the Exhibits are Fabulous! That is all :-)
