Alter ego n. 1. Another side of oneself; a second self.
2. An intimate friend or a constant companion.
This ArtsyMama blog and the alter ego by the same name began two years ago. That’s when we first met and we’ve been best friends ever since. ArtsyMama is an endlessly creative mommy of two. She absolutely loves to share what she gleans from life. She’s like a sponge and loves to take it all in, be inspired, let it stew and give it new life with her own twist. She adores all of the wonderful bloggers and artists that have become part of her world. ArtsyMama lives in the cold north and she loves it! She goes to estate sales every weekend where she finds amazing treasures with wonderful stories to tell of other lives. She has two wonderful little kiddos that love to play outside all day and spend their evenings sitting by the fire. They love to watch mommy do her projects while doing their own crafts along side her. She's a whole lot like Kari. Kari's kids also like to play outside, but they don’t have a fireplace to warm their toesies to at night. She creates whenever she can and dreams of living ArtsyMama’s life all the time. To learn more about ArtsyMama, see the interview that Bonnie just did on her Snap and Scrap site and also the tutorial on making vintage pixie ornaments.
So now is where all of you come in. I got this idea from the Dottie angel blog and I thought it would be a lot of fun. Put on your thinking cap and get your favorite beverage of choice for getting your creative juices flowing. Think about “who” is your alter ego, please tell us about her. I’ll bet you’ve got one hidden (or not so hidden) away somewhere. Leave a description of your alter ego in the comments and your name will be entered into a drawing. I will draw a name out of the bag on Friday, December 14th. The winner will receive this cute little Observations journal to jot down bits of this and that. Also, an envelope filled with ephemera and other creative fodder for your journey.
Can’t wait to meet all of your alter egos!!
