❝The joy is in the play...❞


I'm Tammy. I blog about bringing creativity into your life, one line, one stitch, one photograph, one drip of paint at a time. I jump back + forth between mediums. The list is long, but the idea is constant. I work in my art journal, create mixed media art, take photographs, paint with acrylic or watercolor, draw mandalas, stitch journals, create art quilts with my sewing machine, alter books...
