Wordless Wednesday Picture

I thought this was the neatest picture that I captured while at the park with the kids yesterday. Tyler was just sitting on the edge of the basketball court and I could just image what he was thinking about. :) ~ Enjoy!

CreativExpressions76 Handmade Crayon Soap Giveaway

CreativExpressions76 is located in Cleveland, OH, where Rock and Roll is still king and the art scene is plentiful. Matt and Joanna’s crafty adventure began in the summer of 2008, combining Matt’s interest and talents in art and painting and Joanna’s love of all things that "smell good." They enjoy creating different and quirky things that you don’t usually find.

In Matt and Joanna’s world, evolution is key. Life experiences, small joys and multiple sources of inspiration have all contributed to the substantial growth of their venture. Matt’s ideas for his paintings, pop art boxes and hand painted magnets stem from obvious pop culture favorites (Beatles and other nostalgic icons) to obscure subjects as simple as a kid holding a tennis ball (or in Matt’s case, the world¬ - “Modern Day Atlas”) or a frog in a pond (“Peace Frog”). Overall, Matt regards his creative outlet as a way for him to relax, complement his other passion of writing and enable him and Joanna to build something together.

Joanna enjoys combining fragrance and color to create more than just soap. For her, they are works of art, a release from the everyday stresses. She makes them for people to have a chance to relax and pamper themselves. She knows that juggling work, kids and everything in between can be difficult, and believes adults should have an opportunity to be kids again. She enjoys using soap in different applications, mostly kid inspired, which are also kid tested and mother approved. All of her soaps are hypo allergenic, sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate free. Although fragrant and pigmented, they are designed with sensitive skin in mind.

If it’s not quirky or fun, it probably won’t be done. After a year and a half of successfully selling their goods at local craft shows, Etsy has become the next chapter in the CreativExpressions story! Although their shop has only been up a short while, CreativExpressions76 has already been featured in a treasury and in The Storque (“Etsy Finds Decor: Family Affair” - check out their duckies).

Don’t Just Be… Be Creative!! It isn’t just their motto, it’s their way of life.
