  6. Create Something Everyday!

    March 24, 2012 by Administrator

    Create something new everyday…or

    as often as you can.

    Creativity is great for the mind and

    the soul. If it is a painting, a craft, a

    doodle or a home fix-up project -

    share, post or display what you do.

     

    Brag about your project and inspire

    others to create something!

  10. Brag About Your Art

    January 22, 2012 by Administrator

    Brag about your art using a dollar store brag book.  I converted these dollar store brag books into portable portfolios.

    This is a simple project – just paint the cover  of a brag book with your favorite  simple design.  Then fill the book with 4″ x 6″ pictures of your various projects.  Carry these brag books in your purse or bag of crafting/painting supplies.  Now you have a portable portfolio ready to show off your work!
