The BIG REVEAL and a Give Away!!

My favorite part of Extreme Home Makeover was when cutie pie Ty would yell, "MOVE THAT BUS" only to see the people totally freak out over their new homes.  I mean seriously freak out.  Now that is true joy in its rawest form.  So, I've moved the big bus, revealed my new blogging home and am hoping you're doing a little happy dance like ME!  What do you think?  I've been working away at it for a week now and couldn't wait to share the reveal.  It's very ...well.....ME.  It's just enough orange to make me smile, Mattie blue and of course, includes a Mattie bird.  And she is what started me down this whole road to artistic freedom.  So there you have it.  My great identity crisis didn't last too long.  I don't like to muster over things too long.  Wastes energy and precious creative time, don't you think?


Now don't worry, I'm not going to be just painting birds again.  I will still be spreading love on bikes, sharing my love of camping through a cute RV or two and of course heading down the dirt road in my Chevy.  But Mattie will be tagging along in more paintings and will be introducing her social circle more.  Maybe even adding a new character or two.  There are 4 cats, hamsters and a turtle muse in this house too.  Oh the joy I have in my heart right now for this little artsy life of mine.  sigh.......


Now on to the exciting news.....the GIVE AWAY!   A new product I'm introducing this show season are these fabulous art boxes with print of a favorite painting.  The boxes are about 2" deep so they can hang on the wall or nestle in a favorite bookcase.  Just about anywhere you place them will add a flair to your decor!  So how do you win one?


Let's see......I'd love to hear in the comment section what your favorite art material is.  Yep.  I love me some art supplies and would like to hear what you love to use!  I'll go first.  My name is Jenni and I LOVE heavy body opaque acrylics.  Now it's your turn!

PS  The drawing will be held on Friday afternoon!

Dianne said...

Cute new blog header! I jump arend from media to media so much, it's hard for me to nail down one favorite supply. Lately I've been painting with water mixable oils and have been having a blast experimenting with gessoed scrapbook paper and oils... So currently my fave supplies are my Windsor and Newton Water Mixable Oil Paints... Ask me again in 6 months and the answer might be different!

Definitely paper!
Than I can't decide between watercolor or acrylics, but being able to cut and glue paper is my greatest joy.

Picking one favourite supply is so hard ... at this moment, it would have to be blackboard paint ... only because I am going to be using it later today!

Hi Jenni! My favorite art supply is my son's creativity. He "supplies" me with a lot of good ideas!

Beth HF said...

Golden's Gel Matte Medium-I could have stock in the company. Oh and old Girl Scout Manuals:) Acually any old book that strikes my fancy.
Jenni-you send great traffic to my blog-thanks! I LOVE your "buttons"-the FB, Etsy etc. How'd you make them? PS? ID?
Hugs-Beth

Ludid said...

the new look certainly reflects your joyful style.

i just purchased some watercolor crayons that i can't wait to try.

wanda miller said...

..good timing here, for me...love your work! my fav if i had to pick one would be white paint of any kind! :~}

Suzanne said...

Hi Jenni -- Love your new look and identity. Very nice. I'm thinking really hard about my favorite art material. I guess I would say watercolor paper. I love the heavier, 120# kind. It takes acrylic paints, water, uniball pens. It cuts easily for ATCs. Folds easily for zine covers. I go through a ton!

fromthepines said...

ooh, this is my first visit here and a giveaway! I got here from Artful Blogging - yup a LITTLE behind in the reading -:)

My name is Cheryl and I love all kinds of vintage paper.

Tiffany said...

The new site is beautiful! I almost missed it too, because I read your blog through Google Reader... whew, close one. My favorite art material: charcoal gray, heather-y felt.
