I thought I was having a hot flash and sneak peek at free stuff
Posted Oct 29, 2014



I am back in front of the camera for some fun holiday stuff….. I can’t wait to show you what I’m doing…. heck I’m gonna give you a sneak peek. As I was filming tho, I thought, oh man…. I’m having some serious hot flashes, which, very well could happen at my age, however…. as you can see by my mess of a studio when I’m filming… I have 5 lights, a monitor, camera, computer and my own hot air making that small space an inferno! Ha!

Any way thought I would share some of the process, and also tell you about the video I’m putting together for Holiday gifts.

Every one wants that special one of a kind gift to give at the Holidays, and I have come to the rescue. I will show you how to make a cute bag, tag and one of kind, hand made gift.

I will include instructional video on everything, templates, papers that I have designed, stamped messages and list of supplies needed, which is very little because I have included just about everything with the video!

I will give you all the details on Friday…. but for now a little peak at what we will be doing.


Is he not adorable? I just love him!…..The snow man bag tutorial will be free…. my gift to you!

tag-for-presentWe will make this lovely little tag for your bag and then the grand finale will be a tutorial on a one of a kind piece of art, for gift giving.

All the details will be available on Friday!

Have a great day… You are Loved!

Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!
