A Bit of Painting

I was so excited when I heard that Christy Tomlinson was going to offer an online workshop for her 'she-art'. I signed up straight away and could not wait for the class to start. We had our first lesson last week and I have got to say that I am loving it. Yesterday I managed to squeeze in a bit of art time and created my very first 'she-girl'.


I am now totally addicted, it is such a great way to use up your stash especially all those random rub-ons we all seem to own. Along with some stamps I thought I would never use again. I have put her in my kitchen, next to my cooker to remind me to celebrate everyday.

On that note, I have to share my 'just stepped out of a salon' photograph. I went to the hairdressers last week, he always wants to use straightening irons and I always want big New Jersey hair. It must have been my lucky day as he finally got the curling tongs out and I was loving it. I took a quick shot in the glass, a super quick shot as people were starting to look at me rather oddly!!

I must say that I did feel rather glamorous, a bit too glam for the school run!!


  1. LOVE your she-art girl! She's fabulous! It is such a great way to get rid of tons of stash, isn't it? I am loving it! Ok--and am so jealous of your gorgeous hair! WAY too glam for picking up the kiddos. :) I would have been checking myself out all evening. hee hee

  2. this is so beuatiful Tara!! I am fond of these "girls" too and yours is really touching! I own a book you might love if you don't have it : taking flight by KElly Rae Roberst! got it on amazon last year!!

  4. Love your she-art! I just finished up soul restoration with Melody Ross, very similar projects I think. Christy is a big fan of Melody and actually ATTENDS BG camps!
    Great idea to put it in the kitchen!!! I think I may have to lift that sweet idea:)
    Gorgeous hair, but you always have gorgeous hair~~~

  5. WOW! Your she-art is gorgeous!!! I need to step out of my comfort zone and give it a try... something I keep telling myself I will do. I just need to do it. Fabulous hair too. :)
