My Etsy Shop is now closed

I made a decision today to close my Etsy Shop.  I haven't had any sales for several months, and since I'm doing so well at Hart & Soul in Mt. Dora, it just makes sense to take everything from Etsy to there.

There may come a time when I decide to re-open Etsy, and that option is always there.  If you saw anything on Etsy that you would like to purchase, you can still purchase it directly from me (or Hart & Soul).

Mandala Class

I finally spent time today watching all of the videos of the free Mandala class (see info on right).  It was a lot of fun to do, and very Zen!

I did this first one on plain cardstock - so I was only able to use the Pitt pens that I have to color.  I've discovered that as I age, I have trouble coloring inside the lines!  Maybe that's why I've begun to like Abstracts!!

I think I will make another one - probably in my journal, and then I can use watercolor paints, pencils and crayons for the color.

You can't beat a Free Class!  Give it a shot!

It's Done!

Finally!  I finished the other side of the journal page for Ocala's Collaborative Art Journal!  Now, I can send it off and be done with it!!  I tell you, I'm not very good at doing art on a deadline.  I kept changing my mind about what to do, so I kept on doing nothing!!  This morning, I went into the studio, turned up the music, and just let it happen!

I also just returned from my annual Kansas City visit with my kids and grandkids.  This trip was very special - my daughter and I went to my Aunt Arline's 100th Birthday party in St. Louis!  What an experience!  My sister and brother were there, my only uncle (my father's brother), as well as all my 1st cousins, and all of their kids and grandkids!  We hadn't all been together for such a long time, I didn't even know half of the people there.  Now, if I just managed to get some of my Aunt Arline's genes -- such a gorgeous and gracious lady!
