Sale! "Mastering the Mediums" Online Workshop

Craft Classes Online-Mastering the Mediums

Acrylic mediums can be so confusing. There are so many to choose from. Gel Medium, Fluid Medium, Gesso, Crackle Paste, Molding Paste, matte, glossy, etc. What are they for? Which should you use? Which brand is best? Can something else be substituted? Can someone just cut to the chase and speak in plain English?

Book Recommendation: "The Walk"

I love books. No, not eBooks, not text read from a device, but a real book with paper pages. I have this thing for the feel of a paper page and the smell of a book. Am I alone in this? Will all our traditional books go by the wayside one day? I hope not!

Beside my bed I always have a stack of books and magazines (I love magazines, too!) and read a bit before bed at night. The latest book I'm reading is "The Walk" by Richard Paul Evans. It is a series and I'm now on the second book, "Miles to Go".

I HIGHLY recommend this book series for absolutely anyone. There is no foul language or uncomfortable situations described in this book. It is pure and clean. It has a great story line and the author writes in a way that wraps you into the characters' lives.

"What would you do if you lost everything—your job, your home, and the love of your life—all at the same time? When it happens to Seattle ad executive Alan Christoffersen, he’s tempted by his darkest thoughts. Instead, he decides to take a walk. But not any ordinary walk. Taking with him only the barest of essentials, Alan leaves behind all that he’s known and heads for the farthest point on his map: Key West, Florida. The people he encounters along the way, and the lessons they share with him, will save his life—and inspire yours. 

A life-changing journey, both physical and spiritual, The Walk is the first of an unforgettable bestselling series of books about one man’s search for hope."

Long time, no see!

Yes, I do realize it's been a while since I've posted to my poor lonely blog. I have been working hard since December on several brand new online workshops that opened this Spring.  Have a look at one card from my most recent online workshop, The Art of the Gelli Plate.

When Do Blue Jeans = Art?

Do your kids go through jeans like crazy? Do you have a perfectly good pair of jeans that are worn out at the knees or backside? No sense throwing it away. Save it for art!
