Happy New Year! Wishing each of you a beautiful 2015, full of love and good fortune.
Ok! So not only was a path to Faith shown to me in 2104, last year was full of creative goodness too. Some of you may remember or have seen a couple of our stenciled images from the 2013 show or if you follow me on Instagram. Well, my gorgeous friend Tera and I are still at it! We are determined to get at least 30 pieces together in the hopes of having a 2015 art show. Here are two examples from our work last Summer. (Prints are available in my Etsy shop)
At the end of October I had the priviledge of returning to Northern CA to not only work on more stencils with Tera but also to meet with Mati Rose. I was part of her pilot course, Daring Adventures in Creative Business and I've been getting some creative mentoring sessions in as well. It was so great to meet her in person. Below is a collage of my trip.
I started teaching a monthly art class here at my home and studio last year (which I mentioned in a June post here on the blog). It's still going strong and I am so grateful to the women who show up each month and continue to inspire me and make me want to get better and better. I think my favorite class so far was the October, Fall class. Everyone worked so hard for almost three hours on these tiny sugar skull paintings and I LOVED all of them. So much fun!
Come November I worked feverishly to meet a November 18th deadline to participate in the Holiday Show and Sale at Art Departure. I am so grateful to Jaye and Mary who since day one of meeting me have shown nothing but encouragement and support. And thank you to my Mother who puts up with my endless ideas, rantings and craziness. Without her support and sewing help I would never be able to finish as much as I do. I had one art piece up for the show along with bracelets, ornaments and garland. And, I not only made zipper pouches out of the fabric I create, I also made small friendship pillows.
Finally for my December class I announced that I am returning to Art Journaling. I will be teaching a year long Art Journaling class for 2015. We will still be meeting on the first Saturday of every month. Ok, the second Saturday of the month in January...haha! I am working on the landing page for the class, it will be in my sidebar in the next few weeks. I am working on providing a mid-month check-in and short lesson that will be delivered directly to email. I'll keep you posted. If you are local (in the Los Angeles area) and reading this, please email me for further information.
