Whim So Doodle + Dina Wakley = Fabulousness

My Mom has been in town and she is really getting into her art so I decided we needed to take some classes at Whim So Doodle in St.Petersburg.  Lo and behold the wonderfully talented Dina Wakley was in town.  I signed us up for three classes.  They were great and I learned so much […]

Fire Fly’s and Egg Animals Oh My!

I have had an idea for a couple of months to create a FireFly with a Glow in the Dark Bottom.  I searched everywhere for COE 104 glass but everywhere was sold out.  I settled for the ground “enamel” type version.  It looks yellow but it glows blue.  I have had it in my studio […]

Anatomy of a new Design…

A couple of weeks ago I was trying to come up with some new designs.  Easter is just around the corner and I have some really cute Girlamal Bunnies.  (To coin a term by Jane Davenport.)  Anyway I thought I had an awesome fun idea.  Looked cute in the quick sketch.  However the Design just […]

Be Fearless!

Recently I was taking two classes at Whim So Doodle in St. Pete with Joanne Sharpe.  Both were Free Motion Quilting techniques.  Joanne said to me that I was talented at everything that I do.  I was a little startled by that statement.  I by no means think I am talented at everything I do […]

I’ve been bitten by the Love Bug!

    I have been making beads for Valentines day recently and I had this lightbulb moment! I just love those don’t you?! And this is what was created a Love Bug.  I think she is just Adorable. I have also began giving them mouths. I am still on the fence about them, but they might […]

Crazy how fast time flies by!

The rest of the year just flew by!  I can hardly believe it is 2015 already.  I kept intending to update my blog but then got distracted by life… the best intension right?!  Well I had a Fantastic 2014!  My Beads are selling like crazy.  I fell in love with Jamberry nails and started selling […]

Sketch de France with Jane Davenport

Or Dr Cornelius terrorizes Paris!  Either one works in this case.  I recently attended another Jane Davenport Escape Artist Retreat this one held in Paris.  Like all her retreats I learned a great deal.  There is just something about seeing and hearing the process in person.  Things just click in my mind.  They might have said […]

Did you miss me?

It has been awhile since my last post….  I have been super busy with orders and shows.  I even managed to squeeze in an Art Retreat.  I got to spend time with one of my favorite peeps from Australia, Jane Davenport!  I have a link to her absolutely Fabulous classes on the sidebar.  Check her […]

What an Incredible March!

So as most of you know I was gearing up for my first EVER weekend Arts Festival.  We got to set up on Friday evening… When I arrived and signed in I was given slot number 25.  They had shoes/boots for every booth depending on your slot number.  I got the BEST boot in the […]

Happiness IS….

Happiness is for me waking up to a kiln full of creations.  Coffee is a close second in the morning…LOL!  But when I pull my work from the day before out of the kiln you can’t wipe the smile off my face.  I have to rush them into their beauty routine right away to get […]
