Show Season is Starting!

Hard to believe with the weather we have here in the midwest that show season is just around the corner. Almost time to pack up the white tent and tables and head out for new people, places and adventures on the road. 

With the official launch of
Traveling Art

I have purchased a vehicle capable of carrying all my props 
(for those of you that know me, that is a lot of stuff) 
and a few boxes of jewelry to my shows this season.
I have always envisioned one of those cute vintage campers you see on Pinterest
 or an old beat up vintage truck, never in my dreams was it my parents Van? 
However…they kindly offered to sell it to me rather then trading it in 
and well it's kind of vintage (it's used). 

The Mini Cooper will officially be retired as my show wheels.
The Tart Van is ready to hit the road!

I have started designing tattoo inspired inspirational tee's. This has been on my list of things to try for a long time. I love the way they turned out and now my tshirts "Tart Tat Tees" will be available along with my jewelry, other artists jewelry and/or works and a few vintage goodies at my shows.

Hope to see some of you this season along the way! 

Don't forget to always enjoy the…

What's Next

Just a few of the pieces that speak LOVE for Valentine's Day available on my Etsy website.

I can't believe it is Valentine's week already. This year is moving along at a fast pace.
I have been stuck inside with our cold arctic weather here in the Midwest and have started making plans for the spring and summer months. 

With that being said, T-Art traveling art will officially be launched this spring. I am working on my designs as well gathering other artists work, vintage goodies & other finds to bring on my travels to different shows as well as to private homes & business's for trunk shows.
Praying for a more forgiving spring and summer (weather wise) for all of us. 

If you are interested in booking a spring or summer trunk show contact me for a date (local only)
at t-art@comcast.net

Sending Love to all on this Valentine's Day!


Winter Art

As my daughter was walking out the door for school today… she pointed out that she could be stabbed while going out to her car. When I looked out the window, I saw these beautiful Icicles with the sun hitting them just right. 


It is cold & it is snowy, but there is a beauty in it all.
Helps make the cold brutal air more bearable!


The Sing Off

For those of you who have started watching the Sing Off...This is by far my absolute favorite Acapella performance (for that matter any performance) and it just happens to have Jewel in it.

The song Water is Wide was performed by the Indigo Girls, Jewel and Sarah McLachlan during Lilith Faire in 1997. The Acapella part is at the end of the song. The harmonies are gorgeous and the acoustic guitar solo by the Indigo Girls is absolutely beautiful.

Four of my favorite singers brought together. I hope you stop and take a listen. If you are a fan of any of these girls, you will not be disappointed! Just Sayin :)


The Holidays are Here

Happy Holidays
I have decked the halls and am busy working in the studio making Jewelry for
my Etsy website and my new location at...

Recovered Treasures
I am now in a New Boutique in downtown Libertyville
Owned by one of my Best Gal Pals...Dawn and Kristin the owner of our sister store Serendipity so you can browse both at the same time.

We have some other fabulous girls working with us at both stores and not to mention Owen, Dawns husband who also owns the shop and works on Saturdays.

I couldn't ask for a better scenario.
I LOVE getting out of my house and being with people again.
Now that my girls are not around much...one away at college and the other just plain busy!
Mommy was lonely and needed an outlet and can I say it's been great.

You can find me there on Wednesdays and Fridays and my entire Jewelry Collection
is always available there.

I am working on some new plans for 2014 so check back :)

Enjoy your Holiday's
