A salon/boutique in Scottsdale wanted ALL my wax creations! Including one I didn't think was finished yet (I made it for my gallery at home), and they want more more more! FUN! I've got some work to do! Check them out! Le Diva on 5th Avenue, Scottsdale, AZ! The clothes and accessories are adorable! Lots and lots of BLING!

What a great start to the holiday season, we are FINALLY getting some cooler weather, I find it really difficult to Christmas shop when it's over 90 degrees, finally in the 60's now! Whew!

The art shows all went well, at CCSA (meeting at ASU on Saturdays) we had wind, cold, rain, and lots of people coming to see their childrens' art work, very nice.

By the time I made it to Mystic Paper, everyone who planned to attend had already been there, but met some very nice people, and even entertained a few kids : )

The show at Bak'd was GREAT! People stopping by all evening! Mike and Leslie, thanks so much for finding your way across the street! Fighting the bitter cold, heh... The show will be up until Jan. 31. The food presentation was pretty amazing, stop by for dinner if you get a chance, reservations only!

Now, onto the topic of shopping! OH MY LOOK AT THE TIME! Kohl's has been open for TWO HOURS and I'm STILL not ready to hit the doors there! Actually, I'm almost done, getting ready to plan an intimate dinner for six Christmas eve...

Thought for the day, friends are GREAT! Family is wonderful! Keep in touch with yours!

BUSY November! I have several art shows lined up. Here's a mini list if you're following along:

2. Dec. 1st at Mystic Paper! Boxes, small wall plaques, greeting cards. See all of you there!
3. Dec. 14th (time tbd) at Bak'd in downtown Mesa. There will be two artists showing new artwork there for one month! I have some abstract paintings and some contemporary landscapes scheduled, don't miss it!
That's it for now, gotta go make some more cards...

Wow... Even in AZ the seasons change so quickly! If you have time to venture out before dawn, you'll finally feel the change of seasons...

The last class I took with Mike at Mystic Paper was amazing, inspiring! I've collaborated with an angels artist in Maine and I'm using the new techniques I've learned to make boxes and boards! SO MUCH FUN!

Here it is, already the middle of November... If you're reading this, don't let THIS time pass you by, look forward to the holidays of course, but don't get caught up in it all, take time out for yourself, keep creating!

So, this last week has been pretty tough healthwise, I won't go into any details here, but I am getting some strength and energy back and I'm excited to be posting some pics soon!

Just wanted to say HI, hope everyone is enjoying this little break in the AZ weather!

Creative Arts

WOW! My first blog... I took an amazing class at Mystic Paper yesterday, I am so inspired! I thought I'd start blogging too... I just learned some old-fashioned 'bees wax' techniques, now I want to alter EVERYTHING! I'll start by saying Mike Putman was an amazing teacher! He even had the presence of mind to 'critique' after everyone had completed their projects... I am patiently waiting for my bees wax to melt, then I'm off for the rest of the day, waxing the collages I've created... Thanks Mike and Mystic Paper for jump starting my summer creativity!
