Inspiration

Last night when I took the boys to the library, so Benner could read with Maggie Mae.

As,  I waited for the boys to come up the stairs. I glanced over and see a painting. I  was like wow this looks so familiar. I go up to look closer and tears well up in my eyes.

The artist of the painting was my high school art teacher Kathy Belling. She did this painting in 1988 which was when I was in 10th grade. I was her peer assistant from 10th-12th grade! Mrs. Belling passed away in 1997 at the age for 47 from cancer!  She always inspired me and cheered me on. Mrs. Belling was a wonderful artist, teacher, and person.

The last thing, I want to show you is some packaging. I have been thinking about making these for a while. I think it makes a huge difference when you give a gift or send a package and it’s all pretty! But it also has to affordable! One of the things I love is back to school time. You can get some things so cheap like notebook paper! A huge package for cents! I grabbed a few punches, stamps, glue, inks, ribbon and poof!

What has you inspired these days? I plan on working on an abstract watercolor piece this week! I am so inspired by Mrs. Bellings work!

Thanks for stopping in!

Hugs,

  1. Aww, what a sweet story. I have a teacher from school that inspired me to keep a journal because she said my writing was amazing. I now have my blog to journal the moments from my life. I was going to tell you, Tori and I both thought the twine and butterfly on the package you sent were so sweet.

  2. I giggled when I saw the photo of Ben. He looks so darn adorable with that pose. You can tell he’s used to mom taking photos. I’m sorry you lost a good friend. How cool that you worked with her. I look forward to seeing your abstract work. Perfect packaging too. So earthy. Just your style.
