The lotus flower always looks so clean and pure against the background of the dirty pond and that has led to powerful symbolism and integration of the lotus across many cultures and religions.Read More
“Our cup runneth over”, as they used to say. We were going to combine these two visions into one post but they are both deserving of their own Muse. So today we have companion pieces featuring our very own Gabriel.Read More
The Relics & Artifacts Egg Shrine. So many possibilitiesRead More
I remember when Sandra first sent me a picture of the Artists’ Model piece. It literally took my breath away. Immediately my brain went into overload at the endless possibilities with this piece.Read More

Seeing the projects our Tribe members post in the Relics & Artifacts® Tribe on Facebook is always so much fun. I love seeing all the different ways everyone creates with these craft blanks. As Relics & Artifacts® Ambassadors, we like to create projects for these challenges to cheer you on and inspire you. I have been so busy the last few weeks, that I wasn’t able to participate and make something for the #RAShadesofRed Challenge we just wrapped up.
After seeing all the submissions for the challenge, even though it has ended now, I was so inspired that I had to make something. This piece, “Inspiration”, is dedicated to our Relics & Artifacts® Tribe. You are all an inspiration to me. I love seeing what you create. I learn and grow from watching you make.
Leave me a comment here on this post, and tell me where you find your inspiration. I will be drawing one winner from the comments below to receive my "Inspiration" piece as a thank you gift. Keep creating and inspiring. Keep growing and pushing your boundaries. We love what you do!!
If you are not already a member of the Relics & Artifacts® Tribe, we would love to have you join us. It is a friendly, positive, and very supportive group with endless inspiration.

Living in Arkansas now, I rarely get to the coast. I grew up inland from San Francisco and my grandmother lived in the city so we would go visit her on a very regular basis. She would take us down to Fisherman’s Wharf for sourdough and clam chowder. We would have fish 'n' chips and watch the seals on the lower piers. The sounds and smells of the pacific were always just so fresh and wonderful and very much a part of my childhood.Read More
I just love the RELICS & ARTIFACTS® Thrones. Both sizes are so fun to work with and, like the entire line of RELICS & ARTIFACTS®, have endless possibilities.Read More
This project has so much meaning to me. I made it for my daughter for Christmas. We never really know what life is going to throw our way. It is full of so many beautiful moments, and we hope, very few tragic ones.Read More
The cooling breezes of fall would soon turn into colder, whiter, frost filled breezes. This little fall faerie knows she must fly to join the others and is preparing for her first flight.
She is putting her faith in her glitter covered wings, closing her eyes, and saying a little prayer before she takes offto join the other faeries in warmer places. .Read More
When I look at this angel, it brings me peace and reminds me to have faith and never give up hope. It’s like my own little guardian angel to watch over me.Read More
All I could think when I saw this vintage post office box door at a local antique store was, “WOW! I HAVE TO HAVE IT!” and have it I did. As a matter of fact I bought two of the three they had in stock. I knew right away that I wanted to use this for a journal or mini album cover and I’m so excited to share this project with you.Read More
Beware of where you wander at night.
For in the forest deep lies The Undertaker.
High in his throne, he awaits your unsuspecting arrival.
The ground below, cursed with dark magic to lure you in.
Straight out of the gate, I gotta tell ya, this project is one of my favorites. Not only was it one of the easiest projects I’ve done, but I just love how it turned out. I love birdies and butterflies and faeries and dragonflies. Seeing my art, that is not hard to figure out.Read More
I remember the first time I heard the song that inspired me to make this piece, "How Big Is Your Brave?" by Sara Bareilles. The words just spoke to me and got under my skin and all I could think was, "YES! This is so uplifting and amazing."Read More
I love the ocean, the sound of the waves, the fresh ocean air, the feel of the sand between my toes, walking along the beach just hoping to find a beautiful shell or maybe some sea glass.Read More
This bird is the word! Introducing Fancy the Fierce Finch! I had so much fun with this project.
