Hi there, I am the CraftyGirl behind this blog. Thank you for joining me!
It is with gratitude that I offer you this blog. Gratitude for all the artist out there that have inspired me and mentor me thru their blogs and/or Art images. You have help me become the CraftyGirl-Artist I am today and you keep inspiring me every day.
I decided to make this blog for two reasons. First, because for many years I have been very shy about showing my work with other people besides my immediate family, but then I began participating in Zentangle Blog Challenges (Adele's Bruno "It's a String Thing" Challenge) and found out it wasn't so bad, in fact it was really nice to feel part of a community. A huge Thank you to Adele!
And that's where the second reason came along. I realized that by all sharing our work we learn so much from each other, that by looking to someone else's work we sometimes get new ideas and new approaches for our own work. We actually grow so much together, no matter the different artistic levels we all are at the moment, there is always something new to learn from everyone.
I am in a path of constant learning and improving, and I am enjoying every minute of it!
Art has always been able to bring me to a quiet, happy place, and I have found that is while I am doing some kind of Art or Craft that all the noise and expectations fly away and I can really listen to myself. That is probably why it is then, when I often find answers to the typical every day problems or questions in my life.
I have no doubt that from time to time you might see me writing some kind of insight, quotes or thoughts. I am a retired Psychologist, as well as a Yoga enthusiast, so I guess that sharing them is something that comes really natural to me. I always think, that even if they only benefit one single person in the whole world, it will be a great gain!
In regards to all the Art and Crafts images you see in this website, they are all from my own work unless I state it otherwise. You may use them as they are for your personal use with no derivatives feel free to share them and/or pin them in Pinterest, a credit would be appreciated. As I said before, I truly believe that we all become inspired and learn so much by studying other artists work. In fact it makes me very happy to see my work out there instead of catching dust somewhere in a shelf.

Wishing you happy times creating, and a life full of Blessings,
Thanks for visiting!
