WoW ! It's Been A Year !

It's one year today that I began this blog. This will be my 318th post. Shocking! In honor of this unintended good fortune I want to have a small "give-away". I must be a bit brain addled since I still cannot figure out what it is I want to offer as a "prize". So you, dear reader, will have to tell me if you prefer: a piece of my hand dyed fabric; a piece of felted fabric (wool); or a mix of things from my 'studio' (and oh ! how loosely I use that word!!) . Someone suggested some of my crow stamps on fabric - that's also an option. Hopefully, some of you will voice a choice and if that happens I will use a random number generator for choosing .... sorry if I am not being too clear on the choices - I just can't think of exactly what y'all would really want !!

These photos are the latest class updates. The top one is Lesson Three from Paulette Insall's class "All About Faces" - it was about eys and lips. They are however, still not lesson tomorrow ! The bottom photo is Lesson 1 from Karyn Gertel's "Mixed Media Landscapes". I have to admit that I think I will enjoy mixed media more than I thought I would. I have never done any collage and ,thus far, both classes are really expanding my horizons - just as I has hoped they would ! I found both of these classes thanks to Teri Stegmiller - who should get artist's commissions I think - or at the very least - kudos ! Thank you Teri!

Happy Anniversary Mrs Jo!

I look forward to many more years of reading your blog, watching you grow into this incredible artist, and knowing you will always be my sister and my best friend.

Your drawing is incredible!!

I think the crow stamps on fabric would be great, especially for us that can't even draw a crow let alone carve a stamp of one.

Hi Marie, A whole year blogging, wow, and over three hundred posts, now that's a lot. Well done and thanks for all your posts. They certainly keep me coming back for more. As you said in an earlier post, you do so much with so many different crafts and there is still so much more to do. I have never stopped learning and the only thing missing is more time to do it all in!
I do enjoy popping in to see what you have been up to, it is always of great interest. Whatever you decide to giveaway to celebrate this very important post will be just perfect like all your work. Thanks for keeping on posting.
