Mandipidy { I Heart Art }

Today I would like y'all to meet Mandy of Mandipidy. Mandy is crazy creative. I have yet to see something she cannot do from sewing to drawing to playing to violin. 

1. When did you first begin creating art?
It's funny how you believe something about yourself sometimes just because you once heard someone say it. I believed that I had no drawing skills for the longest time, and so I never drew. About two years ago, I found myself with a lot of time on my hands, and I started doodling. It began as a pastime, quickly grew into a business, and now has become an almost daily part of my life that I adore.

2. What is your favorite/most sentimental creation you have made? Why?
My favorite design is a chalk art styled print of the text from William Cowpers song "God Moves In a Mysterious Way." The words are very dear to me... a poetic depiction of the good and gracious God that I serve, and a reminder to trust Him even when this world doesn't make sense. 

3. Is there a project you've always dreamed of creating?
What would it be?
This one's a little silly... always a rule-follower, I never colored on the walls growing up. And for as long as I can remember, I have imagined creating an art wall in my house one day... an anything is allowed, crazy-go-nuts art wall where kids, guests, strangers, ANYone can paint, color, glue, ANYthing on the wall. I still think that would be awesome. :)
