a new blog

Hello, all!  Just wanted to let you know that I've created another blog for my mail art adventure.  You can find it here:  I'll be posting pictures of mail art that I send out and art that I receive.  If you'd like to join in the postal revolution, just ask me how.  The more the merrier!

I have spent the weekend cleaning out my art studio/guest room.  What began as a quick clean-up (my husband has a friend coming into town this Friday) has turned into a major overhaul.  I'm in the process of going through every single box, bin, and bag and sorting, dumping and setting aside for the "Great American Yard Sale".  Good grief!  How in the world I've managed to amass such a load of stuff I cannot tell you.  My shelves are now filled with boxes that are neatly labeled and I can see a large part of the floor.  Thought I'd post something while I took a break to eat, and then get back to it.  Hope everyone's Thanksgiving was filled with laughter and good company and that you've all recovered from the feast!

A New Adventure

Well here's a cautionary tale about being careful of what you ask for...for quite a while now, I've been thinking that I'd like to try my hand at teaching art workshops to adults (read as:  people who want to be there, not a captive audience).  A few weeks ago, I mentioned this to a friend and it seems like the universe just took me at my word because last week there was a call for teachers at a local gallery (CITY OF THE WORLD in the arts district here in Las Vegas).  I spoke with Roz Knight (an amazing artistic force in this city) and within minutes I found myself "signed up" to teach classes there!  I'm excited and slightly terrified as I begin preparing for three 3-hour workshops to be held on the first three Sundays of December.  We'll be doing "Mail Art".  Each session will consist of different techniques and ideas.  I finished a couple of flyers and will begin hanging/handing them out this weekend.  Woo-hoo!  Hopefully people will show up...
