I did it!

Willy Nilly Art & Whimsy opened today! Yeah!!!
I love old Sailor's Valentines...that is where the inspiration for the "Message on a Bottle" series was originated. Lots of sea inspired art being created everywhere...and I know why. The sea is beautiful, mesmerizing, natural glitter, sparkle and bling. Its colors are hypnotizing, and the sound of the waves is strangely calming.

And the embellishment packs...so fun to put together - like a collage of their own. I am in the process of putting together "Art Candy" in the form of small packs, jars and other candy store-esque goodies.

Not everything I'm working on made it in the shop today. I have a few more tricks up my sleeve...but I'm happy that I followed through and just did it!!!

Thank you to my friends who have encouraged this little pastime! I wouldn't have done it if not for your prompting!
