My first article in a print art publication is about to hit the newsstands! I have a short article/project on page 8-9 of Somerset Home, Vol. 3, which should be out August 1.

I used a collage I had done last year as a “We’ve Moved!” mailing when Tim and I bought our house. I submitted the collage for the “Home” issue of Somerset Studio and also sent along the postcard so they could see what I had done. They emailed and wanted an article! That was pretty neat and I’m very excited. Here’s a link if you want to buy it online. Enjoy!

I was there in spirit!

Yesterday was the grand opening of my friend Andrea’s shop, SunSpirit Studio, in Bisbee, Arizona. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to be there for her big day, so I stayed here, but made art, drank wine and ate cheese and crackers so I could pretend I was with my friends.

junk mail envelope book pagesI worked on these junk mail envelope book pages. I plan to embellish them and then stitch them into a wee book, using a running stitch.

I will post the results when….uh, when I finish. I still have a number of unfinished projects (my shrine from Kathy Cano Murillo’s class at AU, my melange book and tag books started at MHBA, not to mention assorted canvases and random shrines that are only at the gesso or basecoat stage).

Oh, and back to Andrea…She’s also got an online store, if you’re interested in checking her out, but can’t get to Bisbee.
