Taking the High Road.


I have taken a path less traveled by. I started teaching high school art. A life long dream but also sharing my passion for art and wanting to inspire young minds to transform their lives into anything they want! They have the power!!

So you may begin to a shift in what I blog about but it will be passionate nonetheless!!

The beginning of something beautiful!
My classroom

I am back in full force.....Welcome Fall!!


This is a very fitting post...One year ago today was the last time I blogged. I left not really knowing why, I just did.  Maybe because of Facebook...That venue can make you pretty lazy and not give as much thought to your posts as you do in blogging. 
So there,  I laid it in FB's lap...LOL!!!
More blog less facebook!
I went to bed last night thinking how much I missed blogging and the blogging community and all the wonderfulness of it! So I shall begin this post with
 a Welcome to Fall and to new paths and inspirations!

So on with the show........

I am working on a multi-mixed media doll.......She is going to be delicious when I am done with her! I will take pics along the way just so you can see her progress! She will be a raffle gift for a stupendous event that I am putting on at the end of October!!
 I will try to keep my posts short and sweet, time is always of the essence!

Thank you , if you have been stopping by and checking in and if you are new to my blog 
WELCOME...I look forward to inspiring you!
Much Muchness, Ann-Denise

Save The Date for 31 Wishes


Once upon a time........

There was this girl who dreamed the most outlandish things.
Parties with big bright topiaries made of candy from yesteryear.
Black and orange garland hung from the roof rafters above. She
wished for a gala, an artful gala filled with friends, fun and
 a moment in time when all their artful wishes
would come true!

So mark your calenders ladies!!!
I have begun the magical composition of a most
Nostalgic and Festive Halloween Event!

"31 Wishes"
October 20th, 2012
Ft. Worth, Texas

A day and evening of pure artful confections and
a cotillion of wishes that will satisfy any

Another little secret I have....I love my scrap booking products , 
especially my Cricut!  
Yes..... I am a super versatile artist, crafter, and hostest with the mostest!
I found that if you limit yourself in products and tools, 
one can never ultimately find creative euphoria!

With that little tid bit.....
I am so honored to be published in the current edition of  Cricut's Birthday Magazine 2012!
I'll call it an early birthday gift to myself!

 I hope you go out and buy a copy for yourself or someone who
loves to make birthday favors using their Cricut Machine on the fly! 
There is so much offered in this edition and I
know you will love it!!

Also, I must apologize for my long absence, I have taken on the a 
great feat, Homeschooling, but we have come to an official summer break and I must
commence my creative endeavors and blog like a mad woman!!!
