Hi Friends!!

Welcome to my blog! It's not fancy...but fun...and maybe cute to look at. :)

I have so much in my life to be thankful for! I am passionate about my family, my friends, my preschool teaching experiences, my faith, and my creative energy. I hope to share my creative spirit with you all.

This summer, I attended a fabulous workshop at THE Mary Engelbreit Studios in St. Louis, Missouri. I had the honor of meeting so many talented and creative people....including Mary Engelbreit herself. My "All About Me" cigar box shadow box (above) is one of the items I created at the workshop. I had so much fun creating the box, I just had to show you all and inspire you to create one yourself! I'm happy to answer any questions you may have in designing your own shadow box. P.S. Mary Engelbreit is currently accepting registration for her November 2011 workshops! Go to her websight for details.

School is about to begin...yea...but...in the summer of 2012, I am planning to begin to host creative workshops...for adults...in my home. Imagine...attending a workshop where all of the materials are at hand and one can have fun laughing and creating with friends.
My first workshop will be a "scrapbook" of sorts. My idea is to turn your child's favorite hardbound book into a "scrapbook". The stiffer the pages the better. So, start collecting photos of your child and find...or buy a new copy of...their favorite book. I'll have more workshop details in the Spring of 2012.

My first workshop idea came from one of the other items I made at the 2011 Mary Engelbreit Summer Workshop. I turned one of my many ME books into a scrapbook of my experience at the workshop! I decorated the cover and back of the book at the workshop and filled in the pages later. Yes, that is a photo of Mary Engelbreit and ME! :)

So, I hope you enjoy my little blog. I plan of sharing lots of photos. Not sure how often I'll post as school is about to begin...did I mention I LOVE teaching preschool?!? :)

At "Lucy's Thimbleart...Etc.", I will often post items I have for sale. So please enjoy looking and shopping! :)

XO, Lucy

  1. Lucy, my niece and I were with you at ME's, so wonderful! I did start (had one so far) art night with some friends. It was great! We must be on the same wavelength, as I started a blog on Monday...Creativity in a Life. I would love to link yours and have no problems with you adding. How fun!
