Humorous post about compassion #1000Speak  
A post about compassion for The #1000 Speak Campaign? Easy Peasy! I’m so full of compassion that I’ve got compassion coming out of my compassion.

Polar Bear Craft for Kids

A little 3D effect makes this adorable!

This polar bear craft is more than adorable. It uses a torn paper technique to strengthen fine motor skills in preschoolers. A great extension to stories.

I think this is gorgeous! I am trying to surrender more too, but it is so difficult! I tend to want to control things. This January I am trying to be a much more intuitive painter. It looks like you are off to a great start!

I decided at the beginning of the challenge that I would share a few blog posts each day with my Facebook fans to help promote other artists. Would it be OK to share this one?

Where art and family collide.
Introduction
I am a mother moonlighting as an artist and entertaining you with stories about how I somehow, sometimes, hold it all together. We live in a Geodesic dome in Southern New Mexico. My family is quirky in all of the good ways. Want to know more? Check out the blog: It's A Dome Life.

Do you like art jewelry and paintings, but really don't want to hear about all of the family stuff? You might want to just head straight over to my Etsy shop: Dome Life Studios.

My art is just one big, messy experiment. I'm fond of trying out new techniques and new mediums. The thing I love the most is color.


Bragging rights
I sometimes make people laugh. Usually at me, sometimes with me.
