Crash the Stash “New Things – She Was Overjoyed” by CT member Cheryl Pressner
Posted Aug 20, 2020

So grateful for the time spent on Shawn’s Creative Team this past year.  It so happens that I am in the middle of a major move to another city.  Closing on the sale and purchase of a house on the same day 🙂 

So looking forward to the “new things” God has in store and simply “she was overjoyed” is how I feel about my current situation and how this piece came together.  The found words were already in my stash.  Love it. 

May His Favor Rest Upon You and Yours!!  It’s been so great being a part of your Team!!!!!

Enjoy the Video!

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!

    Best Wishes and Blessings to you Cheryl <3

    This is so beautiful, I love it. I really enjoyed watching you create this. Thank you for sharing.

    Love the colors you used–a very beautiful art spread. May you be blessed on your new adventure!
