Check back in a few days to view photos of my studio. Keep in mind it is a work in progress (my studio) and truly is a working studio since i am getting ready for 2 upcoming shows!!!!! Also, check out the Cloth Paper Scissors website to view the studios of other mixed media artists......they may inspire you! You may even want to purchase the newest issue of Studios Magazine.

last week i was busy finishing this group of items which all have the same pattern on them, that i call "island scene". these items will be at the Bahamas National Trust's Gala Ball in October for their silent auction.
i have been neglecting my blog the last week......been really busy but not sure with what!!!!
the last couple of days i have been breaking up some bottles for my latest experiment......i will post pictures later.
rushing off now to meet with my crochet girls :)

over the weekend i was busy working on the mermaid that i had posted earlier last week. she is finally done.....a mixed media mermaid. i find it very challenging to STOP working on mixed media pieces because i keep wanting to add "stuff". but i had an order calling my name that is going to be picked up this week so i had to get her done and move on.
so for the rest of the week i am busy with an order from Bahamas National Trust for their Gala Ball. they ordered 2 pillows, a lazy susan and 2 signs....all with matching themes for their silent auction. i will post pictures in a few days.

i have been trying and trying to crochet for 20-some years.......it finally clicked....YAY!!!! but i am addicted to granny squares, so i have made various patterns but was very addicted when i found this hexagon pattern on Attic24's blog. i say i'd like to call this a hobby because i wont be selling my crochet.......it takes too long, i love it too much .......so its mine....all mine!!!! this piece started out as a table runner, but i love making these hexes so much that i am going to make an afghan size.
today i have been working away at a mixed media piece. the mermaid's body is a fish, which is like a quilt, pieced, layered with batting and will be quilted. her head is clay and when it is dry i will paint on the details. she will be mounted onto a painted piece of wood.......and hopefully be finished on the weekend :)
