Hi all, it's been awhile, but I'm still visiting this site on occasion. =) I've entered 2 of my art pieces in the Rare Artist Contest for this year. I would truly appreciate if you could visit the link & click the check mark to vote for them. You can vote every 10 days or so. I'm in good company...there's a lot of great pieces to check out made by people with rare medical conditions.


Here are the links to my pieces;


"Life Goes On"

and


"Love Will Carry You Home'

Thanks all <3

Dear Artsy Friends,

I know it's been awhile since I have posted here. It has been a tumultuous time between medical appointments, trying to figure out how to manage the chronic illness issues and taking care of a new 2 year old rescue dog. I have not given up on my art though, just changed some of my priorities. When I can find the time and energy, I have been making and trading mixed media Artist Trading cards in Facebook groups and making larger abstract drawings for myself. I find it to be very therapeutic. One such drawing entitled, "Fragile Body, Strong Spirit" was recently entered into a contest for artists with rare medical conditions. Voting is done through clicking a button on the submission through the contest's Facebook page. My piece is in the "Adult 18+" category under my name "Sabrina Zanetta Arana". There are 87 days left of voting. Mine currently stands at 114 votes, while the piece with the top votes is at 1613 (I got a later start than some of the top pieces). 
So, even though I am somewhat of an underdog in the contest right now, it would really mean a lot to see the support in votes for my art, whether or not I win. If you would like to help, please click on the link below and click on the blue voting button to place a vote on my art piece. Voting can be done every ten days if you'd like to vote more than once. If you have any trouble with the link, or finding my piece, please  let me know. If you voted, please tell me so in the comments of this journal so I can thank you personally. =)

Hi All,

I haven't been on here much due to life stuff getting in the way, but I will stop in when I can. For those of you that stopped by my Etsy shops, you probably noticed that I am no longer selling there. I do hope to find a place to sell me arts and crafts at some point down the road and will let you all know when I do. 

I am dealing with chronic illness, mostly undiagnosed, that has been going on for almost a year, which makes it difficult to commit to much. However, art has been my sanity. I joined a couple artist trading card groups on Facebook and have traded tons of mixed media and hand drawn cards. It is a wonderful experience. I made a lot of friends and have even received cards from other countries. There are fun events like swaps and themed challenge games. 

It is very easy to get depressed and give up hope when you are battling chronic illness, especially when it is primarily "invisible", "undiagnosed" or "misdiagnosed" and doctors don't have the answers. I feel like as long as I have the ability to make art is some form, I can still have hope. 

One of these days, I will get around to sharing some of the many Artist Trading cards I have made over the past few months. If anyone wants to know more about artist trading cards and how to join a group, comment on this post or send me a message.

much love,
Sabrina

Hey all,

I was so surprised by the warm birthday wishes when I signed in today. Thank you so much! Despite all my continuing health and financial issues, I did have an enjoyable birthday on Friday spending time with relatives and eating chocolate raspberry cupcakes (gluten and dairy free but so tasty!). 

In honor of my birthday, I am having a sale in my Etsy shop. Use code: SUMMERBDAYBASH at checkout for 30% off any item $5 and up from July 18-July 26. Act fast because the coupon expires Friday. =)

Here is the link to my shop: www.etsy.com/shop/EscapeFromRe…. Now accepting Direct Checkout in addition to Paypal so you can use a card.

I stocked up on a few cool new craft supplies with some birthday money including rubber stamps, ink, a laminator and mini art canvases so I have listed a bunch of fun new craft items with more to come. I am currently working on altered art journals, ACEOs, bookmarks, magnets, etc. that I hope to submit on this site very soon.

Hoping you all are enjoying summer!
