Here are some delicious cupcakes I made for a New Year's Eve party we were attending. I just love the little clocks hitting midnight along with the liners that say Happy New Year in French and in English....You can find the vendor here!
She has the most wonderful things in her Etsy shop and she is very prompt with sending the digital files, too! I am fortunate that I have discovered so many wonderful graphic artists on Etsy....maybe at a later date I will make a link to all of them.
I am honored and to have been asked to create a small heart (16" in diameter) to donate for this worthy cause. Once completed, each heart will be mounted on a granite base to be displayed at the Affair of the Art Gala in May at the Four Seasons Hotel here in Las Vegas. These hearts will go up for auction and will raise much needed money for this great cause.
To the left is a quick shot of the heart I am working on. As with most everything else these days, this will be made up of collage with a bit of mixed media thrown in for good measure! I am finding the heart challenging, but at the same time I am enjoying the work immensely!
Always Leave Yourself Open to New Possibilities.......
I am such a firm believer in this. You never know where a possibility can take you....and if you don't grab it when it comes your way you will never get the chance to find out! That's how I felt when I was offered to teach an online class this summer on Artful Gathering 2012....here is the link. I will be teaching the class "Metamorphosis Collage Bracelets" and am so excited about the idea of teaching this technique to others! The bracelets have been received well, I have sold quite a few and am anxious and thrilled to teach this to others...I have taught a few classes in person, but the online genre for teaching is a whole experience for me....I must say I am enjoying myself and have learned a whole lot more than I ever imagined about camcorders, filming and editing! The project is in full swing now and my class begins in June which is the very first session! I have begun filming and am a lot more comfortable in front of a camera than I ever thought I would be! A huge thank you goes out to Cristina Zinnia Galliher who runs the entire Artful Gathering and also Roses On My Table....you can find a link to that right up on the right here on my blog sidebar....please join me for this wonderful event!
