Before the Creative Process

"We’re Waiting on You!"

It’s the first post on our new website!
Some folks are waiting on you to get here.

Others claim to be “saving” you a seat.

And there are those who have decided that they only “eat like a mouse” so if they go ahead and start without you, you really won’t mind.

Really, we are all just super excited to have you visit us in our new “digs”!

We are a bit giddy…..still trying to figure out which buttons we push for what and all the while hoping we don’t blow anything to smithereens:))

So have a look around (yes, you can go upstairs, look in the bathrooms, and check out the closets….it’s open house;))

The coffee is hot

Butter cookies and mini-cupcakes

With roses and candles for you.

And maybe just a little chocolate;))


Someone is not so good at saving your seat….

No worries, there’s plenty more:))

Our new little home ย is your home too.

Everything is now here, under one roof:)



Make yourself at home, I am so very glad you came!!!!!

Random Acts of Chocolate will be happening here for the next few days.

Leaving a comment (it’s oh so easy now) could earn you some….

thing delicious:))

    So glad I dropped in for a visit. Your gracious hospitality is much appreciated. It was a special treat to see Mr. Eddie too. He is quite the gentleman of the house. I have to leave for awhile but will do so richly inspired & creatively influenced.
    Til next time……Lainie โ™ฅ

    umm yummy, chocolate and coffee with you and the two Eddies, and perhaps Phyllis. Divine, it’s dark and dreary here in the land of enchantment, thanks for a blast of color.

    I so look forward to the beautiful artist’s posts…both words and paintings. I LOVE you!

  7. Greetings Dreama, AWESOME website! I’ve missed your daily posts. I am powerfully inspired by your words and the gorgeous colors of your work. Oh, and let’s not forget that you “introduced” me to TALENTI gelato. :)!!!

    How beautiful everything is! Your presentation is “Mauvelous, Darling!” I should have dressed for the occasion.

  14. Ann Rutherford Pass

    Great website…. Knew it
    Would have chocolate,
    Flowers , paintings, oh and
    Kitty cats… Ann Pass

  15. Margo Long

    Quite lovely, which treat does Eddie favor the most?

  16. Christine Osgood Holzschuh

    So inviting…thanks for opening the door to those of us who are more shabby than chic! “Stillness Speaks” sounds like a book I would like. There is a shabby chic shop near me called the “Purple Chandelier”…I think of you each time I pass it. They always have chocolate too!

  17. Kari Melen

    Beautiful, Dreama. Congratulations!

  18. Angela Sullivan

    Such a beautiful website/blog. Such a welcoming invitation. Love it and I do feel right at home.

  19. Joni

    This a beautiful website! I also want you to know I have enjoyed listening to your radio Artists Helping Artists series…thanks so much for sharing such good information!

  20. Gretchen Stoudt

    So delish! Just another treat we have in common-dove chocolates to go along with our Talenti gelato. I absolutely love you new digs, and can’t wait to see more.

  21. What a beautiful beginning for your amazingly visually delicious new website. I can taste the cupcakes and the chocolate and I can hear your cat purring. I love the banner at the top. Your work. as always is such a treat to look at. Eye candy all over the place.

    Hi Dreama,
    I posted a comment yesterday, but I think it got lost in cyber space! lol Congrats on your fabulous new website!! It is so reflective of your cheery and warm personality! I know how much time is involved in creating a new website–not an easy task. I see the temptation of all those goodies was just too much for Eddie! Wishing you much success with your new digs! Love your beautiful paintings!

  23. Melissa J

    Congratulations on a beautiful new website! I love the light and friendly feel. It’s a pleasure to browse around. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Oh Dreama your new site is beautiful. This post is just a feast for the eyes, beautiful tablescape. I don’t know about you, but that chocolate would be in serious danger in my house and would not look so pretty for very long!

  25. Sara Jane Howell

    Such beautiful pictures and such talent! I enjoy putting them on Pinterest with your permission as all can see what is available.

  26. What a beautiful new website, I love your banner slide show of your paintings and your sweet pictures of Eddie. Congrats from another lover of purple! ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Dear Sweet Dreama, You are such an inspiration and once again you have created a space that is so sweet and inviting because it’s a reflection of who you … which is at the heart of it all. Thanks for your creative spirit that invites all of us to reach for something greater and more beautiful within ourselves.
    I’m excited to be tapped into this cozy new website environment that invites humor, beauty and every kind of creativity to thrive. I have to tell you that it’s really so nice to start my day with a look at your blog that inevitably brings a smile to my face and often just downright laughter. Your paintings, quips, and anecdotes are usually just what the doctor ordered. Thanks for being a blessing to me and so many others. You’re the best and I love ya and just wanted to drop a note to say thanks for all of the effort you make to gift us with this beautiful tapestry of color, word and inspiration. I’m truly grateful. Mary

  28. Wow!!! Dreama, I didn’t think you needed to change your website. Your new site is unbelievable. Such Southern Hospitality. Terrific!!!

  29. Dreama, love the header and how it changes to display different images! Your new site is beautiful. Have been inspired by you at the Marco workshop and your Toolbox book and already started mine ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Aimee

  40. Tracy

    Dreama you are such an inspiration to so many and a beautiful (virtual) mentor for those of us on the soulful creative biz journey. Thank you for shining your light all the way over here in Australia. Your new site is awesome and Eddie has obviously been a great help in putting it all together! xox

  41. Dreama, Over the last month I had been wondering where you were and what you were doing. I missed reading your blog/newsletter, etc. Now I know the answer. Your new website is so beautiful and inspiring. I enjoyed visiting with you and Eddie there. Thanks for going to so much trouble and work to add beauty to our lives.

  42. Nancy LeMaster

    This great new website is going to be a wonderful adventure.

  43. Congratulations! It is beautiful!

  45. Kay Kalar

    Love your site Dreama! And LOVE your work! It’s so happy and beautful. I have turned my students on to you and your work too. So, we are all following you in sunny California. Keep up the beautiful painting!

  46. Well, the first thing that hit me about your new website is COLOR!, The second thing is JOY! Dreama, I really love your new “digs”- (Give Eddie as much credit as he wants -probably all of it), but YOU have created a fabulous new online “home”. I love it!!!

  47. kathyes

    Beautiful, Colorful, Inspiring new website! Wow! I hope to be in one of your workshops someday.
    I could definitely use some of that color in my life!!!

  49. Dreama, your new website is beautiful! Congratulations on the big transition! xxxooo Laurie

  50. Love your artwork; can’t wait to take your workshop (and love chocolate too)

  52. Congratulations Dreama, all your efforts have come together in a wonderful site! Thanks for all the inspiration, I can hardly wait for the workshop!

  53. Leslie Newman

    Looks so inviting Dreama! I think I will just stay a while and look around. Thanks for all your hard work, it shows!

  54. Laurie

    Your energy and generosity is an inspiration! (Plus your work is amazing.)

  55. Sharon

    Gorgeous site and Eddy looks “maarrvolus…” !

  56. As a former workshop participant, I can only say your new website is ALMOST as lovely as you are!

  57. Sue

    I love your new site. It’s beautiful (and cozy)! I’ll certainly be visiting often.

  58. What a great site, love all you inviting photos!!! Your cat better save me some chocolate!

  59. June

    Dear Dreama – It’s wonderful. It’s beautiful.
    It’s so inviting, warm and cozy and absolutely lovely to be welcomed with such warmth and joy, and filled with such colour and happiness.
    Being here in your new digs, I feel at ease. I feel happy. I feel inspired. I feel the love. Your first home was lovely, too, of course. But this new place is…well…it’s just ‘all that’ ….and then some!
    Oh! And I also feel the munchies coming on – those baked goodies and choccies accompanied by the coffee are definitely calling out to me! I do think Eddie is going to have some competition in the ‘who-gets-to-the-sweets-first’ department, though. ๐Ÿ™‚
    But the best part of all is that it’s your new home, and our new wonderful place to hang with you – to relax, to chat, to chill and to enjoy all the beauty and the happiness that is so clearly here.
    Thanks for inviting us all, Dreama, to your beautiful new home, and making us feel so welcomed, and so at home there with you. I love it.
    With much love, June

  60. Elisabeth

    I’m a firm believer in chocolate and any coffee flavored food, and believe Valentine’s Day should extend throughout the year – love and chocolate – what could be better than that!

  61. Gail Storti

    Dear Dreama, First, let me say Congratulations! I am so excited to see your new “home”. You and the Eddy’s have made me feel right at home and how did you know that the way to my heart is with sweets, flowers, candles, cats, and not to mention “beautiful, inspiring art”? On the days you posted on your blog, you have always made me smile and made my day so much brighter. I’m looking forward to reading much more of your wonderful adventures and seeing what you and the Eddy’s are up to. Thank you so much for inviting me into your colorful, imaginative world.
    Love, Gail


    I LOVE YOUR NEW SITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
