Peggy Apl Seeds, Peggy is an artist who lives in the Philippines and shares her Prayer Journal pages, ATC's and other creative and inspiring artwork.
I looked for a link on her blog to her Etsy shop or website and there was none. I dont know for sure but I think she just posts for the love of her creativity, her faith and to share with others. To me that is such a foreign concept since I have had my art business for the last 9 years and everyday I am thinking about marketing, blogging, posting and have almost lost the true meaning of why I create my art, because I love it, its me and it always will be even when it changes and when sometimes I feel like creating something with scripture or when I draw angels with rosy cheeks or cakes with daisies on them.
I have to tell you how inspiring the concept of just creating art for the sake of creating felt to me, I almost couldnt believe there was an artist with a blog not selling anything! Every Wednesday, Peggy makes a post on her blog called, "What's on your workdesk Wednesday" WOYWW and links it up on the Stamping Ground Blog. So I thought I would have a little fun and do something different today and link my little post, too.
I'm working on my butterfly flower cake digital stamp image, its a bit faint but you can see the pencil outlines. Also, I painted a couple more ACEO's over the weekend. One is inspired by Christmas in July. I'm also working on my class project for Monday's art class that I am teaching for the summer (not ready yet, so its not in the photo:)) Thank you, Peggy, so very much for your inspiration and creativity. And also to Patsy, who I think is Peggy's sister, your blog has the most beautiful things to inspire anyone's soul, too:)

Happy Summer! I am excited about this time of the year because Christmas in July is right around the corner, I just love July for that reason:) So to celebrate summer and Christmas in July I sketched a few little summer cuties called the Seashell Angels. They were inspired by a little figurine at a friends house of a wee seashell angel. I have always thought it would be so much fun to draw one and out popped three the other night onto my sketchbook page, meet Flora, Twinkle and Pearl...

I had today off and am playing in my sketchbook with some watercolors and glitter. I have been really enjoying painting, coloring and inking and glittering these little ACEO paintings lately.
I'm sorry that the photos are a bit fuzzy, I'm taking pictures with my camera because I wanted to make sure the glitter showed but I cant get them into focus very well since they are pretty tiny:) Hugs, Michelle

This weekend I made my Mom a little birthday gift. I was playing around in my sketchbook and was drawing lots of birthday cakes so I decided to make her a really pretty one on paper since I could never actually make her a real one:) I drew and colored and glittered this one in my sketchbook and thought it would be fun to make a little ACEO card for her, a little mini-birthday card. So I got out my watercolors and had a blast coloring and glittering her card. I hope she likes it! Her birthday is Wednesday and my brother and I are taking her to a fun
