ART IS "You" ................................... ALMOST HERE!!!







WOW..I have been waiting a year for this!  and its happening next week!!! I'm leaving for Art IS YOU the East Coast Retreat for 6 days!!!!   WOOHOO......nothing to do but "Create
"  ...well....Eat too!  and be with my Art friends, and meet new art friends.......Learn techniques....Teach what I have learned on my journey so far......

I am teaching my "Tiny paperclay dolls" class for two days...The Class is titled "LULLABY LEAGUE" Day One, Create the doll....Day two, Embellish the doll.

A lot of work...organizing the class...making my books and kits...but it was also exciting....and I cannot  wait to see what everyone does in class....

I am also taking a mixed media tiny book class, and metal classes...Patina and Etching!   I'm thinking metal crowns....maybe wings...or maybe just embellishments for hang tags....
I dont know how I'll fit all of this in my car...and I have a bigger 4 door jeep wrangler...but man...Its going to be tight....

The Witch is a doll that I'm working on for the theme of Art Is...Wizard of OZ...She's like Glinda...she needs her final embellishments.....
