Art Hus after the Queen of Arts Show. The whole shop has been reorganized and it looks so fresh and new. There are many new members and the crafts just keep pouring in!
my Etsy site again. My Mom's spot is looking good too!
this journal. I had made it primarily out of paper bags. It was fun to work in, but I want to have some better paper in the next one so I can sketch easier. I have had no time to make one so I am currently using a journal I made in a Teesha Moore class back in April. I am loving it, but there is no place to sketch in it. Go to my flickr to see most of the pages in my journal set.

This photo came in sideways, but this is a photo of all my supplies I use to make my paper mache birds. I made 7 of them this day. Way to go me! I did not get them all painted yet, like I had hoped. I hope to get to them soon and bring them to the Art Hus in Solvang, Ca.
Valley Sketchers on Saturday. I just love coming to the Summerset Farms to sketch the fall scenery. Really gets me in the mood for those pumpkin Lattes.

Art Hus. I get a lot of requests, but these suckers are so hard to size. There is a mathematical formula, but it does not account for the hammering and texturing, so they are very hard to make for custom orders.
These will end up being my rustic heart pendants, similar to the one I wear. I did not finish them, so I do not know when I will get back to them. I sure hope to get these 3 done before the Queen of Arts show at the Elverhoj Museum, but no guarantees.

Sketchbook Project. My mom has a book in hear. I had no idea it was coming to Santa Barbara for 2 days! I got off work early and gave myself an hour to indulge in all the awesome books. I checked out around 10 journals and enjoyed most of them a lot. Lots of fun and inspiration. I bought a blank one to take home, fill up and send out. I am excited at the thought of checking it out next year. I better get to work on that soon, It is due in January.
My daughter is growing so fast. It was nice to have her at our sketch day this month. She did one sketch in my journal and then collected a bunch of tiny white flowers to decorate my book.
Art Hus. Now I just need to find time to get in there and retag all my stuff :P
