Mark your calendars!

For Sunday, March 13th. From 2-5 I will be teaching another Altered Composition Notebook class so if you missed the one hosted in my home a few weeks ago, now is your chance to jump in. Only this time, it will be at The Creative Quest! All you need to bring is a jar of rubber cement glue. I'll provide everything else! Call the Creative Quest at 623-847-2215 to sign up and join me for this fun class! These altered composition notebooks make awesome journals and fantastic gifts!

Also, at the store THIS Saturday, The Creative Quest will be celebrating it's anniversary! I have put together a few samples of cute fabric flower pins as a $5.00 Make 'N Take. Everything is provided for you to make a flower of your choosing. I am putting together a wide variety offabrics, trims, buttons, etc... to create a one of a kind pin. Great to add to your outfit, hat, bag, etc...

My boys spent the night with my mom last night. I got up early and hiked with my girlfriend and am back to day #2 of cleaning out my studio. As you can see, it has been the room of doom... no room left to work.
I am making great progress. I took some of my work to a local store called Ecocentricity, this past week, to show them and see if they would be interested in carrying pieces to sell. The owner wanted everything I took in and then some! So I need to kick in high production mode and get some more things to her and also for a couple of other local stores I want to work with. Ecocentricity focuses on showing work from local artists, especially those who recycle and repurpose materials. They also do consignment for resale on items and offer ecological alternatives for various things. I'm excited about some ideas that came up in my conversation with the owner. I need to make some time to meet again and explore these ideas further. What is cool is they also donate part of proceeds to help with homelessness! How cool is that?! So, if you are local and have not ventured into this little treasure of a store, it is located at 137 W. McDowell on the south side of the road.

OK, cleaning/organizing break is over. Later!

It's all good, Angie! Have fun teaching - both the composition books and pins look like great projects. I have spent the morning and early afternoon playing with fabric rather than cleaning my studio (which sorely needs it).

Angie, that door on your journal looks just like one of my favorite doors from Paris. Good luck with your class. Wish I could attend.
