Changes

I have been redesigning my blog page myself. Obviously, its been years since I did any graphics, but I still have this desire to do my own design. Some of you may remember my page, and it just didn't fit me anymore. It wasn't my style and I wanted more simplicity. So, forgive me for the changing you are seeing until I get where I am happy with things.
I have been making alot of jewelry lately. I am going to try & get it posted to my Etsy shop soon. This is one of the necklaces I made for myself with a pic of this cat from a card someone had given me. I was taking an online Terri Brush soldering class and needed something for the bezel I was making. I like how it turned out. There has been a totally new look going on in the house since January going from the color beige throughout to grays. Its been a nice change and has brightened up the house.

2018

Where did 2017 go? Went to Italy. Enjoyed some great art workshops. Luckily, we both were blessed with good health. Learned a little about golf as our granddaughter competed this past summer. We sold the house we spent over a year remodeling to sell. Remodeled the bathroom. Sold some real estate. Feel pretty blessed for all that is worth. Its been a great year!

Fall is my Favorite Time of the Year



Its been a bit crazy the past couple weeks and I know I need to discipline myself to getting some thngs done for the upcoming holidays. I took a wonderful class from a talented artist by the name of Jenn, she goes by NoodlesandLou on her Instagram and you should follow her and her talented work with clay. I made this darling girl that is already hanging on my wall for the holidays. I will be teaching a much simpler clay technique for the Chisholm Trail Arts Council. Call the CTAC to join us on December 7th. You will be able to take this simply technique and run with your imaginations with these darling little smowmen. I hope you are enjoying the fall weather as much as I am. I had to stop on the road the other day before they cut some of the local cotton and some of the fall pumpkins.

Paper Crown Glitter Retreat 2017












Paper Crown Glitter Retreat began the weekend with a bus ride to the Pioneer Woman's Mercantile in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. It was just over a 2 hour drive from Oklahoma City. The store features many of the Pioneer Woman's favorite cooking utensils, clothing, children's toys, recipe books, Oklahoma collectibles, and a huge array of serving pieces. The 2nd floor has a Bakery a huge array of sweet treat, as well as some light eats. There is a drink bar with coffees and teas. I recognized this room from her show where they often host many of the large events at the Mercantile. The 1st floor was the store as well as the restaurant. We enjoyed every inch of the Mercantile and ended the day with a homestyle served dinner featuring many of the Pioneer Woman's favorite recipes.  I'll post with information about the great classes taught by the amazing Paper Crown teachers over the weekend in the next couple days.

Great Classes by Great Artist

Recently, I have had an opportunity to take some great classes with some of the most talented artist around the nation. I am going to spend some of my next post sharing some of these classes.
Several years ago, early in my awakening to art is when I met Julie Haymaker for the first time in Portland, Oregon at Art & Soul. Such a beautiful soul & talented artist. She has since developed an art technique for shrinking plastic to make jewelry. Basically, it is simply using Shrinky Dink paper. Taking this technique and mixing with metal was one of the classes that I took.
And I want to add this class was at Paper Crown in Oklahoma City, the best shop of its kind in the nation. If you are ever in Oklahoma City...its a must see!
