**i know that i am missing a few people's pieces which i can't quite figure out how that happened. :( if you notice your missing and have a few pictures you could send me i'd love to add them to this post.**
okay so, i'm still scrambling to catch up from artfest. and editing and sorting pictures takes a lot longer than i had anticipated. therefore, i'm just going to show you stage 1 of my doll making workshop...
to begin with, i had a whole room full of crazy talented people!
the creativity was in abundance.
the sensational miss mindy. when she emailed me to say she was taking my class, i was like- "for reals?".
another intimidating albeit lovely gal in my class- author/artist Jill Berry.
i can't wait to show you all their finished pieces. they are AWESOME!!!
my friend reenie of peculiar ambitions gifted us some beautiful eggs from her farm the other day.
these little guys were even standing on their heads they were so excited!
the fabulous egg cups are by artist alison palmer. i'd love to visit connecticut and take one of her workshops someday! i've had an obsession with ceramics for as long as i can remember. i did take some classes once. i very quickly came to the realization that... i should just stick to purchasing other people's.
all this really makes me want chickens! my husband would NEVER go for it. i will have to settle with living vicariously through you reenie.
part of this weekend was spent weeding through my studio, working on completing all the paintings that are half done. the bummer is, starting again after not touching them for SO long- i end up essentially repainting the whole thing over again.
perhaps i will grow out of this rotten habit someday!?!?!?!? PLEASE say you have experience with this and you've conquered it. give me hope that the whispered words to myself of "never again" are not lost in the wind.
i also managed an 11 mile run on Saturday! my longest run in over a year. it feels good to be active again. and my body seems to be holding up. yay!
hi and welcome!!! i'm so glad you're here! my name is michelle. i'm blessed to be a wife (to gary) of 18 years and a mom of two girls; alexis(16) & jess(11). i've been a full time artist for 15 years. i made my start at Portland Sat. Mkt. and art fairs around the country, and then headed into wholesale shows when our oldest began school. i love ART-ing, art journaling, running, cycling and downing junk food!
