Little Sister Megan showing her stuff at the Real Estate One golf outing! (Pictured with Chairman Dick Elsie).

other news...4 1/2 more days of school left. The studio is complete overwhelmed with things to do before the school days have ended. Every year is a new challenge on how to balance fun, work, art, design and my least favorite...housework.

In the midst of scheduling classes in Phoenix this summer while I'm out at Art Unraveled. Make sure to check back soon!

Look at Me I'm on TV!

This is a show I filmed with Stefanie Girard earlier this year and I'm so excited to see it. Believe it or not we did it in one take and I managed to not trip over my own words! (too much that is!0
It was really fun to work on and have my make up touched up and my mic clipped on. I think I'm just a regular ham.

If you're visiting today, don't forget to go the Craftside blog where they are giving away a copy of my book! YEAH!

Also, don't forget to go to my new website where we inspire you to live more creatively everyday!

Brownie Goodness

Abby's Brownie troop makes "Art to Wear!"

Last week I got a chance to work with these lovely ladies on some t shirt decorating.  Because I didn't want to mess with those horrible glitter paints, we used a fantastic iron-on product called Art-Wear Design Sheets byJune tailor. You can feed these sheets through an inkjet printer or color on them with crayons or markers!  That made for a wonderful NO MESS project.  

We finished things off with our very own bling (rhinestone nail heads!)  
It was a big hit and the girls were so proud of their art-to-wear.  All they need is a trip to the local bead store to finish off their Art-To-Wear-Badge.

Thanks for the fun girls!

Nature Inspiration

I met this beauty on Tuesday at my neighbor's garden.  The flower was easily 10" wide and stunning.  The inside was an amazing purple that while being intensely black also had a glowing sense about it.  I think perhaps I've found my pallette for my Halloween line of Brush Strokes!  You never know!

Brimfield Confusion

Emergency Post!  my dear friend Karin posted this picture of me on her blog and there has been some confusion!  I am the in the bright green jacket on the left and Betty Boop is on the RIGHT!  Not the other way around.  

No worries, that kind of mistake has been made by the most perceptive of peeps.

Keep Smiling!

So bad! I can't stand it...
Just thought I'd throw you a bone and share what I've been working on.

You can also check out today's blog on Everyday Artist Studio to see video and more pictures.

But basically, I'm preparing for CHA Summer, the Craft Super Show (following CHA) and Artunraveled.

I'm also doing my part to help the Broadway on the Riverway fundraiser for Wheelock Family Theater.  I got the Silent Auction paperwork duty.  

I'm also working on a brand new idea that involves art, small town New England and teaching...but you'll have to wait to hear more about that later.  

Days are filled with School assemblies, Spring Sings, School Picnics (which I think I have the right to skip because it falls on my B-day --June 9th!), dance recitals and final brownie gatherings.

The days are lovely though and I'm able to hop on my bike and run errands almost everyday.  Now if only I could get my to-do list done so I can make some art.
