Learning to move past and grow through the “One Changing Moment” has proved difficult for us all.

I haven’t updated in some time, but I have actually completed a little work and I am working on other projects that I am very excited about. Those will have to be posted later as that particular project is under cover until…

Here is some of the work over the past several months. Contact me or leave comments and I will get back to you!

Extreme Makeover Home Edition

The painting below “In The Light” was done for an auction to raise money for missions.

This Foyer is wonderful too.  My great friends Terri Harris and Mimi Gula helped me during this difficult time while I was with Smokey in MUSC.  I later went and finished with the artwork.

And I recently designed a shirt for a Texas group known as The Southern Stars.

The Ties That Bind

Be back real soon with more work to post!

God Bless You All!

There are longer periods of time between my updates, I didn’t get the memo reporting that working 15-16 hr days at 44 yrs old takes a bigger toll on you than when you were younger!  What happened?  The body doesn’t want to go the way it use too! Who works 9 to 5 now?

St. Francis of Assisi said it best, “Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible.” I don’t know if he meant it to apply to this situation but I think we could do very well it we would apply it to most all situations!

I have made it to my 6th week with my part-time position at Caledonia and True Blue Golf Courses.

I have a new respect for those who clean commercially.  Wow!  Good thing is I have lost weight!  There really is no bad thing, unless getting up at 4am is bad.  For me, it works.  I just have not figured out how to reschedule all the things I use to do in the morning.  Morning is my best time.

I wanted to share with you some projects I have been working on.

My friend Terry Harris

asked for my help on her project that is in process and here are a few pictures of what we have been working on…

I have been the worker bee helper on this project and she is the creative force behind it. The rooms are going to be beautiful when complete!
We also had the blessing to help with an
Our show should be aired in April and I will make sure I let everyone know that is interested!  It was long hard work with little sleep and tremendous blessing.
I have been working on more tee shirts designs and if you haven’t checked them out, please do so.  I am also going to be changing the shop design.  Just as soon as I have time to sit down and learn how to do it!
Go to Zazzle.com/carlaschuchman to see more designs! Also check out Carleysense for more updates!

I was also blessed to participate with others in a mission trip to India.  I completed a painting that came to me in the middle of the night as I was studying the word.  It is my biggest joy to hear God ask, “Carla?” and for Carla to hear Him and reply, “Yes Lord, here I am.”
Here is the painting and the Community Bible Study in Georgetown SC raised over $4000.00 for their mission trip and seed money for another church building.
Every person in the world in the Word. India 2010
Walking In The Light
Original Acrylic
30 x 48
The words in the painting say,
“When the darkness tries to get me, there’s a light that just won’t let me”
It is taken from the song “Stand Back Up” by Sugerland.
Listen to it here!

With that I leave you until next time.  Hopefully not to long.  Leave comments, or ask any questions you have.

God Bless You and remember we can choose to

Walk in the Light!

I am hopeful that with the New Year there will be much new business.  And although it hasn’t been really busy, I have managed to stay very busy be about the Lord’s business and a little artwork as well.  Here is what I have worked on…

My Carleysense site has a new look and I learned a lot about Photoshop during this process.  I have discovered I really like Photoshop.  I can see how I could become a Photoshop junkie if not careful!

I also learned how to hook up my video camera up as a webcam, upload to imovie, edit (just learning that so there is a big learning curve) and post on my site.

I have opened a Zazzle Store and love this site!  I have had, well should I say; God has put on my heart, these great artistic ideas to spread His Word.  I love shirts with a message and I have had great fun creating them.  Check them out and get yours!
Help spread His Word…

Then I got a call from my dear friend Terry…

Asking me to join her and help on another, my 2nd her first…

Once again we were pushed to our limits, worn out, sleep deprived, slightly food deprived (our own fault) and in the end had huge smiles on our faces and pleased that we got to be a part of something so much bigger than ourselves.

And then, the excitement of that whole trip wore down,I had a small job re-doing a fireplace mantel. Of course I was so tired I forgot before pictures, so just enjoy these after picks!

So there you have it!  January almost wrapped up. I’m working on other things and I post them when it’s time! See you back here soon!

God Bless You and Pass it ON!

What a ride the last several days have been.  The excitement and anticipation mixed with feelings of nervousness and even fear.

Doing it afraid got it’s test this weekend.  Thanks be to God for the victory!

It has been a very busy couple of weeks.  All is well in Artsong’s World.

My husband is having major surgery tomorrow, so please keep him in your prayers.

I have been working like crazy, by God’s lead of course, to get work ready for The Island Gallery.  I have put many pieces in there that  you can see on my website and Etsy Shop.  I have added a few new pieces as well.  I am stretching my wings into other areas and it’s been so fun creating new stuff.

Here’s a sample:

Some Excitement

I am so excited.  I am getting ready for a big yard sale.  It’s out with the old and in with the new.  I have been a very good steward of finances, and after much research have found wonderful deals for some new things.  

With all the excitment, things are also chaotic!  With a week or so before my husbands major surgery, I am moving 5 rooms in the house around, organizing the yard sale, and working on my works in progress.

What are the works in progress you ask?  Oh, that is more exciting news.  A clothing line of fun, simple, clean humor that you can share your faith, or get a little if need be!  A simple, but artistic jewelry line of my artwork.  Wearable art!  Greeting cards, collectibles, coffee cups and I’m adding to the list.  This is so much fun!  I will make an announcement when the product line is almost done.

Check back for updates.
