I am thrilled to share with you a bit of the art and life of Nelly Eisenhower from Nelly's Junk Drawer. I can tell you all the things I am; wife, mother, daughter, friend, accountant. I have always been “crafty” so to speak. I have scrapbooked, collaged, knitted, sewn, you name it. I love making things and try every “craft” that comes my way. I came across the blogosphere about 3 years ago searching out new things to make. In doing so, I discovered the wonderful world of mixed media. From that point I began taking classes by mixed media artists, Suzi Blu, Julie Prichard and Willowing online. I began falling in love with painting and mixed media. In 2010, I traveled to Seattle to attend Artfest. It was here that I discovered women living widely creative lives. Women making a living through creating and selling art. I could finally put into words what I truly want to be when I grow up….a full-time artist. 2011 is the year I will begin to live out my dreams.
It is time for me to make the micro movements necessary to bring my dreams to reality. Stop talking the talk and finally walk the walk.
