More New Pendants & Legions plus Exciting New Retreat Information!

It's been a very productive week!  I now have a large group of the Legions ready to go.  I still have about 15 more to make arms for but here is a little preview of the colorful little guys:



New Pendants:


 Not only have I been getting ready for Artfest, I have been invited to teach at Art Is...You - Petaluma !  I am truly excited about this opportunity, especially since Artfest is ending.  I will be teaching a 2 day Immersion Class on making my handmade ceramic pendants on September 19th and 20th, 2012.  I will also teach 2 other classes (see the pictures below), on September 22nd and 23rd.  Registration opens in late February but there is already much information for you on the AIY website.

Class #2 will be an altered journal class.  I will teach you how to take a plain black premade journal and make it your own.  Here are samples:


Finally, the last class will be a needle felted cuff class, covering both needle felting and embroidery.  I love these cuffs, they are soft and beautiful (and made to specifically fit YOU!)

As always, thank you all so much for supporting me and my art.  Here's a little gift for you to enjoy,  Bailey's latest Youtube video: Love The Way You Lie  I love you all!  xoxo

Thank you all for the kind and uplifting comments! I try to answer each comment personally so if it looks like I didn't respond, it's because I responded either by email or on the person's blog.

In answer to the questions about where I am selling my items, if you see something you would like, just email me. I'm not putting items into my Etsy shop right now because I am getting ready for Artfest but everything IS for sale!

I so greatly appreciate every single comment and all the support that you all extend to me.
