I started this book in Seth Apter's For Your Eyes Only class (hence the name) in July 2014. It took me about a month to finish it completely. Of course I had to put my own spin on it with lots of vintage images, antique trims and German Dresden. Thanks so much Seth for such an awesome class! I like how it came out - hope you do too!
I am being very brave posting pics of the old studio and sharing my remodel/move to the larger space as it continues (right now, very slowly). Believe it or not the old studio was pretty organized. I liked to call it an organized mess - LOL! It just became so cramped with so much CRAP it wasn't conducive to creating anymore. Please be kind if you comment! :0)
Update: The studio is finished! Woohoo!
Located at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme CT this is a yearly event. 38 structures are hidden throughout the FloGris property. The level of detail in each and every structure is just extraordinary! So much fun whether you have kids or not. A magical day!
For my birthday this year we traveled to Madison CT's Barberry Hill Farm to attend 'Dinners At The Farm' an annual summer event started by Jonathan Rapp of River Tavern in Chester CT. For two weekends in July and two weekends in August he picks two host farms to host this fabulous charity event to benefit City Seed plus two other land/farm related charities. All the food we ate was locally sourced and absolutely spectacular!
February 4th is National Wear Red Day. Mark your calendar. Wear red to show your support, make a donation to The American Heart Association/Go Red For Women. Go to the Go Red website for more information. The link is at the top left of this blog.
Several of us that created art for the calendar were trying to figure out what to do with our original art pieces and Sanna (Mizz August) came up with a brilliant idea to have a giveaway to help sell the calendars.
To qualify for the giveaway all you have to do is purchase a calendar or two. Then leave a comment on this post. That's it!
Actually, I am going to 'up the anti' and say that for every calendar you buy your name will go into a drawing to win. So, if you buy 5 calendars, you'll get 5 chances to win. Woohoo!
This giveaway will continue until Dec 31, 2010. The winning names for my piece (January) and Lyn Wareham's piece (March) featured here will be announced here on January 1, 2011. What a way to start the new year!
To purchase a Go Red calendar click on the link at the top left side of this blog.
The calendar is up for sale on Etsy. Woohoo! This has been quite a project in the making - since January!
I tried to find a printing company to give me a deal on printing and binding but had no luck. I wanted as much of the price of the calendar to go to Go Red For Women, yet keep the price reasonable, so I ended up printing and binding all the calendars myself. Oey! I hope I can keep up with the sales!
Help support woman's heart health - buy a calendar!
