Beach Sand Painting – A Bit Like Spring


The Beach Sand Painting has been a bit like spring has been, here in the Northeast.  You think it has finally come because a warm sunshiny day arrives, and then the next day, the frost of winter is back with snow and ice!Just when I thought I had found the perfect frame for my beach sand paintings, I also found it was discontinued when I tried to place my order! Well, I found some frames that I can work with, but they are a slightly different size than I used for my original Beach Sand Paintings. (See the Nature Loft Art gallery to view the originals.)  I will be making the prototype for the new Beach Sand Painting and re-listing it soon. Â... » Read More

Beach Sand Painting – "Ship is Coming In!"


I wanted to give everyone an update about the Customized Beach Sand Painting with name personalization.  I was unable to find a supply of shadowbox frames in the right dimensions and/or quality that I use for these paintings.  Finally, I think the "ship is coming in" for these paintings! I have found a frame available that I believe I can use, however I will have to alter the design slightly.  I will also need to add a piece to the frame to accomodate the shells that are on the inside of the glass. When I get all the materials in, I will make a prototype, and post a listing for this different frame type.  Please keep your eye on the... » Read More

Beach Sand Painting Sold Out?


The Customized Beach Sand Painting is temporarily sold out.  I sold the last one that I have available with the frame and mat that are pictured.Unfortunately, I have had difficulty finding a shadowbox frame that is the same as this, that I can work with.  I have found something very similar, and I am working on how I can adapt my design, or see if I can get it customized to suit my needs.The frames that I have are assembled of separate parts.  Everything is removable, so if the glass were to break, you could replace it.  If the names were not permanent, that part could come out, and you could use it as a frame for something else with o... » Read More

As this Moon Rises, Another Halloween Night Unfurls


As the moon rises tonight, I hope everyone has had the chance to carve their pumpkins!  On Halloween night, jack-o-lanterns were sometimes carved and lit so they could be placed in the windows to scare away evil spirits and demons. We had time last night to carve our pumpkins, since we were home due to the historic, Hurricane Sandy.  It gave us something to do after being stuck indoors all day. I had six faces I designed that are listed in the Nature Loft Art shop to illustrate my previous blog, "Simple, Creative Pumpkin Carving."  My son chose one design, and my husband chose the other. I think they did a very good job! (see below) We s... » Read More

Simple, Creative Pumpkin Carving


Halloween is a wonderful holiday for stretching your creative muscles!  Creating costumes, making special treat bags, and decorating your home can be a lot of fun.  There are so many things available to turn your happy, bright, and cheery home into a frightening, eerie showplace.  Pumpkins are a favorite item traditionally used to help create a special Halloween mood.  There are countless ready-made items available for Halloween decorating and costumes today.  To my knowledge, there is no such thing as a ready-made jack-o-lantern, unless you choose an artificial one.  As busy as we are in our everyday lives, some of us would lik... » Read More

Gifts That Will Make Dad Happy on Father's Day!


Father's Day is fast approaching! It seems like a lot of fuss is made for Mom on her special day, but let's face it, she couldn't do it without Dad! Showing your father how much you appreciate his contribution and attention to you over the years is so important.  And just like Mom, he'll appreciate whatever gift you present, but it would be nice to give him something unexpected, if not extraordinary to show you care.  You can add some zeal to the typical gifts for Dad by either grouping them together as a package, choosing something related with a different twist, or combining it with something that adds value to it. Approaching it in one o... » Read More

Mother's Day Gift Ideas


Mother's Day is quickly approaching! My mother was famous for always saying, "You don't need to get me anything!"  Of course, I always felt like I wanted to get her something. She did so much for me, she deserved it, and I wanted to show her how much I appreciated her.  No gift could ever compare to the caring and love a mother gives to her children, yet we still wonder what would Mom like that is unique and exceptional like she is? Being a mother myself, I know that mom's enjoy keepsakes that inspire memories. Pictures are important visuals that show us how things never stay the same. I am always amazed at how small we all are as we sta... » Read More
