Here is a pic with my old doors now in my space! Big barn door is in but not attached yet. Will show pic of that as soon as it’s ready! The barn door will be where I hang up my wall items so stay tuned for pics coming of that! What do you think of my old doors? 😊

Here are pics from this weekend! Just wanted to let you know the progress! We have the doors all at Southgate and we are in the process of setting it all up. Still working continually on furniture pieces to bring in and more art pieces! It needs to have a lot more in the space! 😊 I am loving having my own space and hope you all will come and check it out!

Hello Everyone 😊 I just wanted to post a pic of the mixed media that I did, that I had it in my new space at Southgate - the big barn I have posted about recently. 😀 It sold this weekend! The lady that bought it loved it! She loved the bird and said she walked by it several times admiring it, and decided she couldn’t leave without it. When I created it I was almost going to keep it myself but decided to give someone else the “joy” of it. ❤️ Thus my name - “Creating Joyful Transformations”

I’m getting stuff moved in slow but sure! Still a lot to do, but I’m so excited for this “new spot” and can’t wait for it to take off! Still in the process of getting our barn door in for my “wall” to make a hanging art gallery! And my free standing 2 old doors for more room to display hanging items! And more furniture pieces will be coming! Come and explore Southgate and find your unique handcrafted art pieces and antique items! You won’t be disappointed! They are in the process of getting food vendors in also! Great treasures, food, and art! All under one HUGE beautiful barn!

Hi All 😊 started taking things in to my space yesterday! Yahooo! Need to get a lot of furniture done this week so I can take it in. Also by next Saturday want to have my barn door in and the freestanding doors!

A new update! Went to Southgate Market (the name they have chosen for the new place) today to get measurements on my vendor space. I was thinking I would have like 1 1/2 spaces. Turns out the space right by the stairs is a lot bigger than I thought. It’s 12 x 19!! So I had to choose - 10 x 10 OR 12 x 19! I stepped out in faith and chose to embrace change and am going with the 12 x 19!! It’s scary bc of the amount of rent and not knowing how much I will be selling! But to sell a lot you have to have the space right? So I will be able to use my 6 ft x 6 ft barn door! And then I am going to make a free standing “wall/partition” of 2 old doors! I will take pics and post when I start moving my things in. I want to be in the week of Thanksgiving! So much happening so quickly!! But I am so excited! I’m diving in!!
Here are some things ready to go in!! Have a lot more in progress! Let me know what you think! 😊

I have some great news!! The owner of the Nappanee Artisan Market, that I’m in, purchased a big venue! A huge barn that was built around 10 ish years ago. It’s in Elkhart, IN, the city that I work full time in. She is planning to have different eateries in it, an antique mall, an event venue space, boutiques, a mini artisan market, and lots of vendors spaces. I’ve already picked out my space! I’ll have a 10x10 and then a space across from it that’s not quite as big. All the vendors are on the 2nd level and I’m right by the stairs coming up to the 2nd level! I’m so excited! They are planning to open in 2 weeks! They’re planning a big Christmas event. I’ve got a lot of creating to do between now and then!! 😊 For all you locals make sure to put this on your calendar and come out to see us!! Here are some pics!
I will still be selling in the Nappanee Artisan Market also.

Happy Saturday y’all!
I wanted to show you what I did with a coffee carafe. The coffee maker died a week ago. I was debating on whether to get rid of the carafe and got an idea! I painted and stamped on it, distressed, and put one of my live plants in it. It’s sitting on my kitchen window sill. Before pitching items always think outside the box first! 😊 what do you think? Yes? No? Let me know!

I am at the Market tonight. These are a new addition that I brought in! The first pic is the front side of the bucket. The 2nd pic is the back side of the bucket. These are old vintage buckets! Such great patina!
Come and check them out! Or if you would like me to ship to you, I am willing to start doing some shipping! 😊 just message me if you are interested.

Hey All 😊 just want to share another page I completed in my art journal. The theme is “botanicals”. It’s so much fun and relaxing to just create and try different things! I encourage you all to try it! This also helps me to know what works and what doesn’t, when creating my pieces to sell. If you are doing a journal, show me your pages! Let’s grow and process together!

Happy Sunday all! Just wanted to share that I have started an art journal. These are 2 entries that I have recently done. An art journal allows me to play and create, experiment, explore, see what works and what doesn’t, but ultimately grow in my creations that I make! It’s time spent that’s enjoyable and stress free! If you like creating, I encourage you to try this. You just may be amazed at what ends up on your pages!

What triggers a great summer memory for you? This pic reminds me of growing up and going to see my grandparents who lived on a working farm. There was lots of land to roam and my grandma always had flower gardens. There were the wild flowers here and there also! Great memories ❤️

As we are ending the month when we celebrate Independence Day, I thought I would share the fireworks I was able to see on the 4th this year in Nashville Tennessee! It was spectacular! One of the best fireworks I’ve seen!

I love the streams flowing in the mountains of Tennessee! I was fortunate enough to be able to go this month. I cannot express enough how much I love the streams and the mountains!

Hello everyone 😊 I wanted to share this that I created for a couple that just got married. I wanted to use the wedding invitation to create something special for them. This is what I created. I love how it turned out and they did also!
I love creating mixed media compositions! It’s my happy place. I’m in an art journaling club and love it. I’m finding my passion coming thru when I’m free to just create and let go! Good times!
What is your passion to find freedom?
