Cheap Smiles -- $5, $10, $20, $25

I've got the Monday morning blues. I had a great weekend with dear, long-time friends who have left or are leaving soon. I'm tired. It's gray and raining. I wanna curl up in bed and cry. But I have some cheap smiles I can share with you -- found for under $5, $10, $20, and $25.
Bakers Twine in purple, pink, light blue, and orange. Only $3.99 at TJ Maxx!
Hemp Crafter's Cord for $7.99 again, TJ Maxx ( I'll use this for wrapping presents or putting it in my art. I might even sew it onto towels or little banners.
Home Goods does it right: $19 wire basket. It's going in the Doodlebugheart craft room. Super cute and functional.
And I love me some cheap-n-cheerful socks:Target, baby! Under $10/pair and usually they have a deal of like, 5 for $25. 
Let it rain!

Erin Faith Allen ~ As an international mixed media art teacher, I act as a guide inward ~ to the innate creative genius spark that lies within every one of us.  An artist and empath, I experience the world on a supernatural level.  I make art to understand and process my self, life, and the planet I live on.  My work conveys the delicate dance between light and shadow, and I believe we must know our depths to know our heights: we must howl in wild stark exposure at the moon in order to know true bliss in the glow of sun. 
My artwork can be found on
Is your soul a stream of consciousness word parade that flows across your surface?  Does it swoosh in gentle abstract harmony, or blaze it’s way vibrantly across the page?  Have you ever created a piece of art with direct connection and intention to express this pure and unique essence of self?   In this soul-full hands-on collaging workshop we will dive into the depths of our very being, to find our own unique soul signature and express it through mixed media collage. 

The clarity of self-image will assist greatly in manifesting your dreams, desires, and circumstances that are your hearts desire.  To hold a self-created image of WHO YOU ARE is a talisman for growth, a gift that keeps on giving for years to come!  You will be given tools of self-awareness that can be utilized in your studio and career, to unleash your potential through this creative process at any time you need to connect with yourself for answers, guidance, or fun.

With guided visualizations, music, and stream of consciousness writing we will create at least one Soul Portrait, and as many as time allows! See some examples of Erin's work below:
