Home again, home again!

Helm-123

After a lovely visit in Ohio, we’re back to work in Colorado, getting all sorts of projects moving along. Starting some, finishing others; and moving all through the artistic pipeline we call life here in Longmont! We’ve got a couple of annual events that are happening right now–the miniature mask swap and the dyeing days.

This is a great time for new beginnings, and I’ve got several in the works in this new year. I’ve relocated my studio space to 364 Main Street in Longmont, where I am making new art, giving classes, and finishing projects that have been in the works for a while. Here’s the start of a [...]

Patsy Cline said it so well…some days things just are NOT all together. That’s how it is right now for the purple faerie ball joint doll that I am making. First the cat stole one of her lower arms—luckily I have made a paper under-body pattern that I am testing and it was no problem [...]

I’m even getting pages from my old website re-formatted [...]

As the wheel of the seasons keeps turning and Winter Solstice is coming right up, I’m reminded as always to take a good hard look at what I’ve done this year and what I’d like to do next. Some recent health issues have made me exceeding grateful for good health and creative energies when I [...]
