OK!!! I think I've got it now. The post below you can see my submission for my CDA certification...but you have not seen the critique. So if it works this time I will share mine with all interested.

Now.... I did not pass....I'm letting you know that up front, but I did learn a lot. Hopefully I'll be more prepared for next year. I plan on studying every chance I get. I've also got some wonderful friends routing for me ( and that always means a lot!)

If me sharing my mistakes helps just one person...then it will be worth opening myself up this way. Please contact me if you have any questions at .

Just double click on each picture and it will enlarge for better viewing.

Peoria and SDP

Hi Everyone!
I got back from Peoria, Il last week, but it took me a week of sleeping to get over all the excitement.. LOL... It was fabulous! I got to meet all the Art Apprentice Online ladies!!! They annouced their new program and I believe it will be fantastic! I'll tell more about it in another post soon.

One of the reasons I went to Peoria was that I submitted my "special board" to try for my Certified Decorative Artist Certification (CDA)... To the everyday guy or gal, this may not mean anything to them...but to an artist, especially a decorative is an honor to have these three letters after their name. It is sort of like a "feather" in your cap.

FYI - I used DecoArt Traditions Paint of course!!!

Here was my submission.. It did not pass, but I did get an actual score...which isn't bad for a first timer. I'll try to insert the certification critique.... but no promises... I'm not real computer savvy...
I hope you are enjoying my blog and please, please feel free to leave comments...just click on the "comment" line below.
