News, Updates, & What's Going On

As an artist, entrepreneur, and retailer I have a variety of projects, endeavors and obligations that I am actively working on in any given month, day, or minute of the hour. I think that many of you would be familiar with the saying "If you want something done, give it to a busy woman!".

I enjoy all of the activities that I am working on, and I would like to share a few with you here.

  • May of 2009: I just created the The Store on the Corner Blog as a way to communicate with a larger audience, and to create interactive dialogue.
  • I am planning on creating several individual blogs on the techniques that I love so much, and include free instructions, on-line classes (priced accordingly), and monthly clubs that will focus on specific techniques, which will include instructions and a project (small fee).
  • These will be developed in the following months. If you would like more information, or to be on my mailing list for these blogs please email me.
