Hello all,

I have been a very neglectful blogger……………….. I’m at a creative crossroads and determined to find the artistic medium that will keep me engaged in the creative process.   I’ve dabbled in Oil Pastels and taken a workshop with the very talented Karen Leeds.  I’ve taken an Acrylic Painting class at Brio Fine Arts which was great.   The beeswax collage workshop at Art Unraveled was very enjoyable.  I’ll be participating in a private workshop with Marg Nelssen in January, learning about mixed metal mosaics.  Still want to take a workshop in encaustic techniques………will post again.




Ready to explore other mediums for your art…..Check out the annual mixed media artist’s retreat in Phoenix Arizona.  This year it’s August 3-10.  Check out the website for location and classes.  www.artunraveled.com

I’ve been working on so many new items for my 2008 Spring Line. 

I’ve added a new supplier for hand dyed blanks for girls. 

I’ll be introducing hand dyed Short Sleeve Tees, Capri pants, and A-Line Dresses in bubble gum pink, lavender, and charcoal gray for girls in size 2T, 4T, & 6T.  These outfits will have a variety of applique choices with embellishments ranging from hot-fix rhinestones, sequins, buttons or beads – and some with chiffon overlays.  I’ve also added new applique shapes for Spring.

Additionally I will continue to offer Crochet Tops from my Fall 2007 line.  These Crochet Tank Tops are so much fun!  Always machine washable & available for Infant Girls 6m up to a Big Girl XL.  I’ve switched suppliers to offer a larger color range – and sizes.  These hand stitched tops will be available in white, pink, lavender, red, fuchsia, and black.  A variety of applique shapes will be available with coordinating yarn.
