AU Shopping Extravaganza

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my booth at Art Unraveled for the Shopping Extravaganza! Jeane and I had a blast meeting and talking to everyone. We consider the day a HUGE success and are already talking about next time.  My studio is ecstatic about having more room to breathe. Your nod of approval for my art really means a lot, and I am happy everything that was sold has a new home. I plan to restock my etsy shop as time allows, and Jeane and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible again.

AU 2010

I just wanted to take a minute, and from the bottom of my heart, shout out a ginormous THANK YOU to all my students yesterday in the Sew Scrappy Journal and Fused Clutch classes at Art Unraveled. You were all so amazing, and your work gorgeous, each piece different, yet so beautiful. The attendees of Meet the Artist were told that they would learn so much from not only their teachers but one another, and this was definitely the case for me. People were sharing ideas and thinking outside the box with colors, techniques, design, and on and on and on. Several students told me they had not made anything in weeks, months, even a year, in one case, and they were so appreciative of getting to a space where they could they could "take their artist out to play," as I call it.  I was touched by that.
Thanks also, to my daughter Jeane my class helper, that shared her expertise in the first class and helped by offering her expertise along the way. I really couldn't ask for better help.
