My name is Jeanette and I love art a lot and think you probably do, too. If you’re like me, you are always noticing color combinations, textures, the way the light hits the glasses on top of the gorgeous dark wood bar as you’re sipping a Manhattan.
You’re constantly seeing paintings on the ‘gram or Pinterest that you wish you had painted.
You spy a photo of a sculpture and immediately want to fly to Oregon and hug it.
When you walk past a beautiful object in your home, your breath catches and you can’t believe how lucky you are to own it.
Welcome to a blog full of that.
I have equal amounts of passion for art and gathering things to share, so I’m hoping to blow your creative minds and inspire you to make/buy/sell/share/teach art, and also lure you into a like-minded community where all we do is talk about how creative we are.
How we Can be Friends

My kids like to make art, but not when I have a fun art idea for them
