What began as a literary genre of science fiction and fantasy that incorporated the techno and social aspects of the 1900's has now evolved into so much more. Through the eyes and hands of artists all over the world "Steampunk" has been taken to a whole new level. I am constantly amazed by the varying combinations of artistry and components from metal fixtures and gadgets to the wondrous thing-a- ma-bobs and Victorian industrial style!! It's flavor is unending and constantly delicious!!
With a love for creating the odd, and collecting the unwanted tainted pieces of what some may call "Junk" I have formed a passion and true love for steampunk . It is not just the literary genre involving steam powered technology yet a beautiful art form using brass, copper and glass, polished wood, hammering, engraving, and oh the details for the sake of details with a Victorian Industrial twist. An art form that shows itself through ones own unique personality and artistic interpretation. While some see my collection of junk ( old gears, washers, chains etc.) in the drawers of my atelier, as an artist I see so much more. So in honor of Steampunk and all Steampunk lovers everywhere I bring you today a piece I created using some of my old so called "junk" and some collage images from www.AlteredPages.com

I pray all are having a super start to the week. This mornings post was to be happy and joyful as I announce the winners of my very first blog giveaway. While the winners will still be announced I must say it is with a heavy heart. You see, I am a Navy Mom as well as a Navy daughter. The shooting in Washington DC this am has effected my family not directly but because of the loyalty to our fellow military families. My heart is heavy and our condolences go out to those involved. I pray God's peace and comfort to all at this time and please ask all of my sweet sweet followers and fellow artists to please remember all of those involved as well as those who help defend our country today and everyday.
Now for the BIG announcement! Saturday, I announced my first of many giveaways here on my blog and I want to thank all of you for the sweet comments and for joining me in my new endeavor. In order to be fair to everyone I use "Truly Random" number generator to choose the winners. So without further ado the winners of Saturdays Giveaway and this sweet tag are,
Well, once congrats again to the winners! Keep watching my friends for the next giveaway coming soon not to mention the first of many swaps and challenges here on my blog. And if you haven't already, hug your loved one and thank a soldier,
