Scolded by my brother for not posting regularly. We upgraded with WordPress and I’m a slow learner. On Sunday I created a new page for the Sib’s Sunday instead of a new post. Rejected by Somerset Studios, again. This time without a note of encouragement to keep submitting. Haven’t heard anything from a place I’m […]

They have scampered out of the kiln, stacked themselves neatly and are awaiting to be glazed. You lovely cat people out there, the finished ceramic cat buttons are coming in a couple of days, waiting to be used in all of your creative endeavors. Thank you for your patience. michele

Well the girls are busy at the quilt show in Long Beach so I’ll just post a view of the ceramic buttons on the bottom of the kiln that I still have yet to unload. Hearts and flying witches oh my… Bubba

Well it’s Michele’s brother “Bubba” that’s not my real name but it sounds cool. Michele got stung by a wasp then fell and hurt her arm and hand and tried to bust her ribs all within one hour. Doc says she is fine just a little sore. All that just to get out of driving […]

Newly made puppy buttons, getting their first firing at about 1987 degrees Fahrenheit. They will take 8.5 hours to fire, and one full day after that to cool down. Then they will be glazed in white and black glazes, and be shiny and beautiful, awaiting exciting applications on joyful creations. In the same kiln load […]

A little time left for one more By the Sea themed card for Mixed Media Monday. How I miss the ocean. Blue dolphin ceramic button with little fish and ”In the beginning” ceramic embellishment, sewn onto recycled cardboard, with miscellaneous fabric scraps, paper and eyelash yarn. Size: 7.75” x 4.25”.

Do you play? Having been introduced to Mixed Media Monday, I’m rediscovering the winning combination of play time and thinking outside my narrow focus. I encourage everyone to give it a try. Whether you post your creations or not, you’re a winner for playing. You might even make new friends.

The mixed media collage cards with ceramic buttons are now available for purchase right here, right now (well, not entirely now – I have more to get listed, but my goal is to get a sampling of all categories in first, then add more selections daily). Thus far there is a lovely selection of butterflies, […]

We have fabulous opportunities here in the Denver, Colorado area. Organized by Nancy Smith and Betsy T. through our favorite fabric shop Great American Quilt Factory, we have a monthly group play date. Betsy graciously imparts exciting artistic techniques and we learn them. We meet, play, share, learn, experiment, and go home with the cool […]

TOO much to say about this one, and of course everyone knows the importance of making time for themselves, or for creating. Here is how I negotiate with myself: I wish to spend hours painting papers, or sewing painted fabrics with no particular finished project in mind. I have housekeeping to do. Simple, for every […]

Already a month behind, trying to get ready for Long Beach IQF. So it’s time to make lots of new, shiny, pretties. We are fulfilling the requests to have many single buttons, and we will still have the finished “button-cards” available. Also, we are presenting a mixed mosaic class for the Make It University. If […]

Leap! Kickin’ it to California. We decided out of the blue to commit to vending at IQF in Long Beach, July, 2008. Since Chicago’s IQF, we’ve been sluggish and morose, (apologies to anyone reading my posts, it might have been obvious how blah I’ve been) now we’re hyped and creating anew. WhahHoo! More upbeat news: […]

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. I’m really good at starting projects, not so good at finishing them. However, by posting the process, perhaps guilt will push me. This panel is an embellishment card that has been adhered to an old filing card that TT painted to coordinate. It is one simple […]

Many of us work 2 jobs in addition to care-taking, housekeeping, and creating or working on our craft. Why not hang up a little affirmation to allow yourself a wee luxury? Take your coffee back to bed. Soak in the bathtub till the water cools. Splurge on take-out. Sit and sip that hard earned martini […]
