There is life after a heart attack!

Hello my friends -

Life has been a little hectic here since my "mild heart attack" before Christmas.  No one can figure out why it happened or why I am still having issues, so I have been spending a lot of time (too much time) with cardiologists.  At least I am not in hospital...

I feel fine.  So no worries here.

So here's the scoop.  I am SICK of making cards!  I don't think I could put another one together if my life depended on it.  Of course, I need to do something, so I decided to visit the amazing world of altered art.  I visited and loved it so much I moved in.

I am taking Christie Tomlinson's She Art course and am just loving it.  Christie is a wonferfully quirkie woman with huge talent.  She is an excellent teacher and has the gft of making everyone feel good about their art.

Here is my first attempt -

and here is my second.

I am also learning to make Art Journals, and although I can only dream of being as good as artists such as Sheena MooreI am loving the process.

Here is the cover to my first book, I also prepped the pages and added fiber to make it interesting  -

 and here are a few pages

This is my FAVORITE page so far

So as you can see, I have not been idle, just doing my own thing and enjoying it.  I will keep you posted as I travel my artsy journey. So far I am having a blast!

Have a great day my lovelies.

Whoa! Danielle I hope you have a room at the 'Altered Art Inn' cuz these creations are spectacular! OMG I could NEVER do this so well! You have found your niche for sure! Wonderful, wonderful creations! Thanks for inspiring me to try something new (i think). I may have to get some supplies and take some classes like this(maybe) in the future. See how indecisive I am! lol Keep it up. I love it! Glad you are doing well and I sure hope they find out what going on with the ol' ticker!
