July 9,2013

It has been a while since I have been on here so I am back today to say I am doing fine and working hard on some great projects.  I received a great gift of some really neat stuff from a dear Facebook Friend, and I will enjoy using the stash she has sent. I am working on a photo album of my work to be posted as soon as I get all the details worked out. I am not the best with the computer and I am going Thursday to get some lesson on putting my pictures on a disk and then uploading them to my blog.  

This is some of my Journaling pictures I have been doing in a group I belong too.
This is call spring and I used paper collage and H2O spray.
Bird was my subject I chose for the year and I just did a Acrylic free hand painting  and added doodles and splatters.

My word for the year is Accomplish,  well this page kind of follows my word.
I chose a book page from a old book called Jinks, because that is the way my Mixed Media has been going.

I took and on-line e-course with Kelly Hoerning  and it was a Steampunk Class
This is the first project I really enjoyed this class I have not finished all the projects yet.


Life is Good and I Accomplished something today so until later enjoy your creative MoJo.

My first story about who I am "A GEMINI"

I go by the name of Shadee, or Shadee66. This is a name my grandmother gave me when I was a child and I really like the sound of the nickname iIt is two parts of my real name
Sharon Dee. I was born on D-Day 1944, and that is where my name came about that is the most important part of a person is her/his name.
Just a short story of who I am and what I do and why I am here on Granny's Korner Blog and  Find Your Voice.

I have been married for 50 years come July 27th this year to a wonderful man, we are lovers, friends, and parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents.
There are many parts to my life I have my faith to keep me grounded and my Art to keep me happy.  That is why I known as the Gemini, I am two person in one body.

My grounded person has been a mother of three great boys, and three wonderful grandchildren, and three wonderful Great -grandchildren and these are the center of my real world, plus all the wonderful thing my hubby and I do now that we are retired and enjoying the ''GOLDEN YEARS'', and why they call retirement that I cannot figure it out it has been the ""Broke Years" for me. LOL.

I have gone through  a lot of sorrow  along with a lot of fun and in the last 50 years since I have been married. I lost my father the week after I was married, we lost 2 sons at the age of 21 each, and step-father, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, mother-in-law father-in-law and a lot of friends.  This has brought out the twin in me the Creative person.

In the 1980's I took up " CREATIVE PERSON".  I have always been creative from childhood but it came to life when we lost our sons. I started decorative painting class and was encouraged to open a craft shop in our small town of Ste. Genevieve, Mo and I did it.
I new nothing about business but I new about art and supplies so I jumped in with both feet and this is where the fun begin.  I took classes, I taught, I learned we did not have computers at that time and I had two very special helpers   that were great designees and we did it all.
Then the "GREAT FLOOD OF '93" took it all away.  But that did not stop me I moved to my basement and opened a studio and that is where I am now.

The Journey will continue next week tune in to my blog.
Until then.

Creation in progress Blog design update.

Well it is Wednesday June 26,2013 , and I am busy designing my new Blog page. :)
This has quite a challenge for me. I had a lot of support from some really nice bloggers, and they are to be Thanked and Thanked for all the hours we put in last night to get this going.
I am not a real computer friendly person and I have a lot to learn. 

I have wanted to be a blogger for along time but never new just what I wanted to talk about our share with the world.  I was introduced to a group of artistic people and bloggers on a group called Monday Mixed Media and met some really nice ladies and now I have found several more groups and on is called ArtAmuseMent, and a new group Find your Voice.
So this is why I am  here today. I want to share with the world what I am learning from the wonderful Teachers in these groups, also the past journey of my teaching Decorative art in the past and I am hoping all this will become one inside my box.  I am now on the outside looking in and wondering where is she going next???? Well maybe tomorrow I will find my path to where I am headed. 

So for today it is just getting this Blog up and going and hoping not to many Typos, misspelled words and wrong punctuation. 

You can find me on Facebook at http://facebook.com/SharonD.Estes . 

Well my time has expired and I must move on to something else around the box.
See you Tomorrow if the Creeks Don't Rise.
