Quick Sketches of my Favorite Oscar Dresses

Quick sketches of my favorite gowns on #Oscar night | I Gotta Create!

This year I did something a little different
while watching the Academy Awards.

I did quick sketches of 
my three favorite dresses...

of course while munching on snacks
and playing some Oscar Games
(see the links below).

These were just quick studies - not meant to be perfect by any means. 
I enjoyed whipping them out!

I was inspired by this 
infographic of Oscar Dresses.

And  guess, what?
I'm on Instagram now and invite you
to follow me there
where I'm undertaking some new creative 
directions and posting my artwork.

What were your favorite moments of the evening?

Using Christmas Ornaments Year Around

Hello everyone! 
Today I'm sharing a little peek of our home
to illustrate a decorating idea.

Sweet Ideas for Using Christmas Ornaments Year Around | visit I Gotta Create!

I designed our home with 
all my favorite elements in mind.

It's a place where a 
rustic, back-to-nature log cabin feel 
meets elegant craftsman bungalow form, 
meets warm timber frame touches.

I have a few little holiday ornaments
who beg to stay out past Christmas.

They add a little whimsy
through every season.

You might have some ornaments
you've collected on trips or inherited,
so I thought I'd show a few of my examples of

how to use holiday ornaments year around.
