After Glitterfest I was asked by  several people who couldn't make Glitterfest to make some of the things they saw on my FB page.  So I've been busy working on some and here is one that I sent off today for a person whos birthday falls on Halloween.

The tassel is fairly long, about 18 inches total and has a nice weight to it because of all the dangles  and charms.

 I have more to post.  Enjoy!

Glitterfest and Chorizo

So I woke up yesterday morning realizing I only had 8 days to finish all the projects I had started for Glitterfest and a huge lump of heart pounding adrenalin pumped me up and off I went, into the studio with a goal to at least finish most all them by this Friday or Saturday and maybe start some new ones to finish next week.  Here are some pictures of things I have finished.  I'm pretty excited because for this show I mostly concentrated on assemblages, altered art and art dolls and I'm really loving them. 

Do you love chorizo but don't eat it anymore because it's not good for you?  Well I have a yummy substitute!  Trader Joes has a soy chorizo and it tastes just like the real deal minus the "mystery" meat and grease, not to mention way fewer calories!  I was surprised at how delicious it was so if you live in So.Cal or the west coast check it out!

Glitterfest is coming!

I've been a busy bee, creating new jewelry and assemblages and art dolls and collages in my studio.  Getting ready for my most well attended  and well loved art show GLITTERFEST!  There's something about having deadlines that really put me into high gear.   Here is a picture of my eclectic wraps that always sell out.  I make them when I'm winding down at night...always doing something with my hands even when I'm tired!  If you would like to buy one of your own I can make a custom one in any color(s) that you like.  They can be wrapped around your wrist 5-6 times or worn as a necklace, $47 includes domestic shipping.  Contact me via email or leave a message on this post.  Also, FYI,  I will be teaching these wraps as an online class through thetroddenpath 
sometime soon!

I recently made a shorter version for my friend as a necklace with a meteorite she wanted me to use. 
More new eye candy to come!  Thanks for stopping by!

You deserve time to yourself to create and make art!  I invite you to come play with me at 1,2 or 3 workshops this September!  

First workshop of September is something I am soooo excited first mixed media painting class!!  I hope the word "painting' dose not discourage you.  If you have ever taken a class from me you know that there is no such thing as a stupid question and definitely no vocabulary for "I can't paint'".  non-sense I say!  Come see what all the buz is about and take a class with'll see.   Sept. 13th, 1-5pm, $70.   Here are some new samples, fresh out of the studio and as you can see, quite different and diverse.  I'll show you at least 5 methods I have devised to demistify mixed media painting.  Intuitive or planned!  Click HERE to sign up.

Next up is a 2 day extravaganza at Bobbie Takashimas art studio, National City Ca.  (San Diego).  Sept. 26 & 27.   These have been extremely popular classes for me this year and will probably retire soon so take advantage of them while you can!   For all the specifics and to to sign up  click HERE
