My Artist Pick of the Week: Mary Cassett

I love being inspired by the works of famous artists and I clearly remember the first time I ever saw one of Mary Cassett's Paintings in the National Gallery in Washington, DC.  From that moment on, I was an huge fan.  I remember the piece was of a little girl in a straw hat and the expression on her face was priceless and amazing.  Mary is also known for her tender gentle interpretation of Mother's with their children and babies.  Her ability to capture on canvas that special bond between mother and child, truly creates one of those remarkable moments when a picture does speak a thousand words.  So  here are some of my favorite paintings by Mary Cassatt.  I hope you enjoy them.

Vintage Floral Beauties

It's been one of those crazy weeks weather wise this week, We started off with warm temps that melted the snow and we actually saw the ground, but Jack Frost decided to let us know he's not done with us yet and we got an unexpected 6 inches of snow and another snow day off from school. So with all that said, I'm in the mood for Spring today.   In anticipation of what will surely come our way in the coming weeks, I've put together some vintage floral postcards for you to enjoy!

Happy Presidents Day!



Well I hope everyone here in the US is enjoying their Presidents Day, and if you are one of the lucky ones who gets the day off, I'm sure you are enjoying your free day! Years ago when I worked at the Courthouse we used to get Lincoln's Birthday and George Washington's Birthday off separately. It was great! Now the two have been combined and made into one group holiday to save money. Alas most companies these days don't even give their employees the day off, my husband's company being one of them. So I guess we must celebrate our Nation's Forefathers on our own time. Anyway, I have put together some images that celebrate this special occasion and also some cool vintage cherry images too. So have fun and enjoy!

9 Heart Designs to Scrapbook and Craft With

I been a little busy on the "One World One Heart" blogging journey that it's been a while since I posted some new stuff so since Valentines Day is only a week away, I've put together 9 12x12 pages of heart designs for you to download and use.  I'm so behind I still need to make valentines for the kiddos to take to school and then my youngest who's in Kindergarten gets to address them and sign them.  He has 28 kids in his class!  It's actually ridiculous amount of kids but our school is so overcrowded we have 6 kindergarten rooms of 28 kids. They desperately need to redo the boundaries of the school districts. But I digress...

I hope you come up with some cool ideas to use these papers with and have a great week!
