Early morning journal page...

There are some days when I just don't want to speak....just write and listen to all that is going on inside of me.   Today is that day....a quiet day of reflection starting out on my back deck, a cup of good coffee and my journal.   Life is good.  Especially when you slow down and listen.

Where's Lucy?

I almost totally forgot about this sweet little blog of mine until I received a comment the other day on one of my collages!! My bad. Perhaps in 08 I will keep things up on a regular basis-but until then, be sure to check out my Etsy shop for my items for sale as well as my Main blog, Sweet Repeats for day to day creations and rambling!

If you enjoy swapping-check out my Sweet Goodness Swap Blog which is ran by 4 creative ladies. The next swap will be coming up in another month or so with a Spring flair to it :)

Until next time, look for the little ways every day to make your life creative. Your world will open up!

Did you ever have one of those days???
You'll love the journalling and out of control chaos that represents our moments when we just hit the wall and have to "Take a Load Off".

Where Did Time Go
We can wish it away---or we can live each day to the fullest!

Barely Holding On

8x10 multi layer collage, painted with acrylics using brush and a credit card! Includes journalling, magazine cut outs and vellum back drop.
When I started making this piece I thought of how some days I can barely hold on to myself, my sanity, and my patience. Thankfully I do believe in guardian angels and of course my faith keeps me going. How many times do we sit on the stairs of our lives, holding on to the rail for dear life, just mustering up the courage to take one more step and carry on?
Other days, everything will be smooth sailing, but it's those tumultuous times that keep us wavering and hoping for someone or something to just help us get through another day, another hour, another minute. For me, that thing has been my kids, my art, my family, and my faith....what is it for you, that keeps you holding on?
**I can add a ribbon hanger if you'd like to hang. Would look great framed or on a plate holder.
PRICE: 20.00
Shipping: 5.50
I do offer discounts off of multiple purchases.
Shipping is via USPS priority. If you'd like a different & less expensive option, please email before payment.
See Sidebar for payment info!

Temptation SOLD

8x10 collaged painting "Temptation"
My version of Eve tempted by the forbidden fruit, displayed in an orginal collaged painting.
"She Didn't Heed the Warning, truth and justice shall now unravel"
As a person behind the paintbrush, my stories will unfold or unravel if you will, on the canvas. I have been many times warned by those around me, but I have often thrown good judgment and wisdom to the wayside and went with my heart....only to be posioned by the forbidden fruit. When will I learn? Or was the learning all part of the plan?

Take Control / SOLD

8x8 Collage on Canvas Board. Multi layers of paper, paint, journalling and free hand doodling.

Welcome to Sweet Repeats Studio Shoppe!
I will be featuring a variety of items here weekly, from original art, vintage or flea market finds, craft items, yard sale goodies and other fun items.
Over the next month I will also be opening an Etsy shop where you can choose to purchase some of these items either through the blog or through Etsy, as well as reopening my ebay store. Be sure to check back often for new offerings!!
About me:
I am 38 years old, a Mother of 2 boys, a banker by day, and artist by night. I have always loved drawing, painting and crafting but over the last few years when some chaotic events happened to me, I've turned to art as therapy and now I am exploring more and more techniques and styles every day. Stick around and see how my works evolve, drop a comment and let me know what you think!
Please see sidebar for purchasing information. I will update posts when items sell so if you see something you like, let me know!!
Although I will I am happy to do commissioned work, I can only promise colors and theme---as I work from instinct, heart, and am inspired by my day to day sourroundings and interactions. Spontaneity is the rule rather than the exception.
Pricing: I will discount shipping charges with additional pieces. For now, I will be using primarily priority shipping plus a small handling fee for packaging.
From time to time I will offer special sales and discounts on multiple purchases!! Keep checking back for updates!!
