Welcome to Andrea's Creative Quests. It is my hope that this will be a place that I am able to share the treasures which arethe results of my adventures in ART. I desire to be able to showcase my creations, keep myself motivated to create, and inspire others to embark on their own ARTistic adventures.

Chance drawing!

Here's the deal; My youngest daughter, Sheridan, has been invited to compete in The Miss Palm Springs Pageant, the 7-9 age group.  To compete, Sheridan must raise $625 in sponsor donations.  Normally, this would be no problem, as I would have had Sheridan out talking to businesses and fundraising.  However, due to the injury I suffered in January of last year, I am unable to get around without assistance, let alone drive around town to multiple businessses.
So, since you can't keep a good woman down, I am getting creative - pun intended! lol!I am asking friends and family to please donate to help Sheridan reach her goal of $625, and compete in the Miss Palm Springs Pageant.  When donations reach $50, I will have Sheridan draw one name from those who have donated.  The winner will get to choose 1 prize from the 2 offered.  When donations reach $75, I will draw for the remaining prize. 
Now who wants to know what the prizes are?  Of course everyone does, right?  The two prizes are as follows: 1) Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge 2) Handmade beaded necklace, bracelet and earrings set.
Finally, use the link below to make your donation .  Remember, any size donation will qualify you to participate in the chance drawing!  Thank you all soo much!

What I've been doing

I know that once again I have been MIA, and I am so sorry for that.  I have not been MIA from my crafting though.  Over the past months I have done a number of creative projects, or parts thereof.  One of the things I am proudest of is that I have taught myself how to crochet.  I started out with a scarf, made with fringe and all, and progressed to a baby blanket. Of course I have NO babies coming into my life, nor do I have friends with new babies, so my daughter, Sheridan, got a new doll blanket.  Thankfully I did get pictures of it before it was whisked away to become a prop in Sheridan's fantasy world. LOL. I LOVE that my art makes my family happy!
Thankfully my art is also useful.  I have made cards to welcome the newest members of our business team.  Again, I snapped a shot of them before sending them off into the world.  The say Hope, because that is what we want to encourage.
