Check out my darling little red desk. My sweet husband gave my tired child-size roll top desk a fresh coat of fire-engine red paint. Would you like to see inside?
Before I give you a peek inside, here is the colorful and inspiring postcard from Violette Naranjo Clark. We recently traded postcards. It looks perfect perched on my desk. Don't you think?
The seashell is filled with treasures from my outing to Long Island last weekend.
Here is what it looks like inside.
In one compartment I have this really cool ATC from Helga Strauss. She is the owner of ArtChix Studio. This ATC features some of her new wooden embellishments. You need to check them out. They add a dimension to your collages that is very interesting. I love Helga's style. When you sign up for my online class, the Journey of the Heart Journal, you'll get to meet her and learn how she started her successful creative business.
Tucked in another spot is a beer coaster that I altered several years ago. This is my queen card.
The queen is keeping an eye on my little friend, Ludwig Marquette. He was made by the talented Vanessa Valencia over at A Fanciful Twist.
In this photo you can see the colorful mailing labels and the thank you inserts that go in every purchase. I also have postcards tucked in above.
I'm loving my little red desk. It is so cheery.
Now when you place an order from me, you can imagine where it came from.
Speaking of orders...It is time to get my packages ready for tomorrow's post.
CLICK HERE to see what I have available over on Etsy.
CLICK HERE to register for the Journey of the Heart Class. I have several course books waiting for you!
This is how my kitchen table looks right now. I thought you might like a behind-the-scenes view. I assemble all of the coursebooks myself. The Journey of the Heart Journal online class begins tomorrow. There is an option to buy the coursebook. Order today and I'll get your book in the mail tomorrow.
My husband helps with the assembly...I love how we work together. This is "Team Costa" in action.
Pictured above you can see the back page with two door knob signs read, "I'm taking a Journey of the Heart." They are a perfect signal to your family when needing time for yourself.
Mission Accomplished! We assembled a dozen more course books to fill the next round of orders. Lots of love is poured into the design and assembly of these books. My intention is that they reach the right people and help them to realize their BIG dreams. I'm really getting excited for tomorrow's opening day.

I'm feeling energized and creative these days. Here I am today recording a voice over for a new collage tutorial that I plan to launch along with my new True North Arts website. My goal is to get it all launched by March 1st.
It is my first time using my husband's sound equipment. This mic is so sensitive, it picks up EVERY noise.
Here is a close up of the mixer. Fernando has offered to edit the recording. I will then put it to images that I have scanned to help illustrate the concepts.
I have to keep this short. I need to get back to working on some new free gifts for you when you visit my new website. I'm having a blast!
More updates and behind-the-scene peeks coming soon!
