Just a quick entry today.....found the most amazing jelly roll fabric yesterday and just can't wait to start quilting...

Also, made a  "ME" for my Skype page so now you can finally see what I look like :)
Will post pictures as my quilt will come to life. I can't find a pattern  l like so I am designing my own.
Wish me good luck.

Whimsical and Fun ART

Some whimsical and fun art that I created last week. Since then the creative part of my brain has been on the OFF setting. Today I might change that and find some time to spend in my studio. It is such a mess in here I SHOULD clean and organize first but... perhaps I will create first and then clean :)

I am still having a hard time after loosing all the data and pictures on my laptop a few weeks ago. My new online magazine with ART Lessons for kids had all the research and pictures with lesson plans on the old hard drive. It is now all gone and it is hard to get started yet again but I will.... just need a little more time. 

I am teaching a workshop (Wayne Thiebaud inspired cupcakes) at the CAEA Conference in Los Angeles November 13. If you are in the area, love kids and art or teach art to kids this is the place to be the weekend of Nov 12-15. 

That is about it for now so have a nice rest of the week and keep creating with your kids...

Remodeling completed.....

The remodeling is now completed and starting this weekend is the project to put everything back again. We are a reading family and have hundreds of books that need to be put back in the book shelves. The kitchen is wonderful and I now need to figure out where everything goes. Seems like I have way too much can that be??? :) Pictures will be posted soon when everything is perfect again. I am not making new art yet but selling some old art on Ebay. 
Next is finishing up my studio where we have stored most of the books and kitchen gadgets for close to 4 months. I can't wait to have my studio back again. My cat Max is just as pleased as I am about this and can't wait to curl up on my over stuffed orange and purple chair by the window. I look forward to a cup of coffee in the same chair early in the morning.... perhaps already next week.

Over and out...
