Valentine Workshop

Here are some examples from the weekend, of things students could make in the workshop. These were just a few of the things they could do. It was a 6 hour workshop, both days. Both days were sold out. The next one will be in April and it will be on Paper Embellishing. i think I am going to start preparing now!

When Life Gets In The Way....

I never like staying away so long. It just happens sometimes. Life just really does get in the way. No matter how hard I try, my blog has to take the back burner, even though I know it isn't healthy for me. I need to be here! So, I'm back Ahhhhhh! lol.
Well, I had a weekend class of 16 and I can honestly say it was fun! What I've shown today isn't an example. We did Valentine everything this weekend. The bird collage is just something I did this morning. We are expecting a big storm today with lots of snow (I live in the foothills of the Sierras) so we don't normally get alot of snow, but this year we HAVE! I am hunkered down and waiting! In fact, I just turned around and I see it's starting now!
I will be back later with the uploads of the Valentine art. I am off to watch the snow for a while!

Hello, there. It's been a while. My surgery was put off til Dec 27th, so recovery was extended, but it's a New Year now so I am off. I wanted to show you my new art, and what I've been up to!

Believe it or not! These darling pins are made from a popped out hole from a pizza box! You know me and recycling. I will collage anything! They are egged shaped and covered using decorative paper. I then find the images and add them. I embellish them from there, add adornments and come up with my series of Hatchlings. Each is OOAK and unique. They are for sale on my ETSY site. They are copyrighted and signed by me.
