Childhood memories

Sunday morning were always special in our family. My mom would turn on music that would travel to our rooms. I would roll my covers around me more tightly enjoying the warmth and coziness of the blankets. Mom just knew how to get us out of bed with out saying a word. Once the music started she would follow up with the smell of breakfast. I would hear her in the kitchen. First I would hear the pan than the sizzling of the chorizo followed by the cracking of the eggs. Once I stated smelling the fresh made tortillas I knew it was time to run out of bed! There is nothing better than a hot tortilla and warm butter. I alway ran to the table first to serve my chorizo while it was warm along with a warm tortilla. That made a perfect start to the morning. There was a lot of talking at the table sharing, planning and laughing at the table. Our meals were set family time. On Sunday’s we would go to our Church than we would go visit our Grandparents. I remember going to my great Grandmother Theresa’s house. It was a stucco home which was cool in the summers. Today’s card is called “Child hood Memories” I combined the memory of my Great Grandmothers house and church.930BB9F9-E956-4F6A-954E-FC0445B8119F

Card Making is one of my passions!

There is nothing greater than waking up with an idea and you just have to get on paper before that idea fades away. I find my self in my studio sitting on my desk looking for the right pencil or Copic marker and paper to help my idea come to life. I must be missing my Tucson roots because I can’t stop drawing old stucco buildings and cactus. I have a drawing that I made this morning that I will be sharing with all of you this afternoon. Until than, keep creating!

Inspiration

Beautiful morning, everyone! I am in beautiful Tucson Arizona this morning. Enjoying the beautiful colors which surround me. Art is everywhere from the beautifully colored shops and building to the murals that welcome you when driving into the city. You will be inspired to create something when you get back home. Don’t forget to visit the white dove of the desert San Xavier. The murals which are there are priceless. Many of the murals have been restored and now have the vibrant colors back in them. The Old Pueblo radiates with it’s range in colors. You will find some homes and shop exteriors in beautiful colors like blue, yellow, purple and red and that it just naming a few. The food is amazing but spicy too. It is only a two hour drive from Phoenix, Arizona and is worth visiting!
