Unbuckled in San Miguel de Allende

Do you have an itch to travel? I do! And I so wish I could attend this workshop taught by my pal Jesse Bert in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. In grad school our benches were separated by pegboard. I grew to greatly admire Jesse's masterful craftsmanship and quiet diligence. This will be such a fabulous adventure! You can learn more here.
Here is more of Jesse's work:

Sail Away!

Wow, I want this sign! You can have one too if you go to SignsofVintage on etsy.
You'll be glad you did.

Art Unraveled

Hi Folks! There's still time left to register for Art Unraveled in Phoenix AZ. AND you 're in luck! There's still room left in two of my classes!
Silhouette Pendants on Tuesday July 31st  We'll be making these pretty silhouette pendants. I will teach you how to saw and then rivet so you can trap fabric or felt in the opening for color and texture.
and  Flower Power on Wednesday Aug 1. There you will learn how to torch fire enamel! This is SO addictive and fun. You'll also learn some fun forming techniques to make your own blossoms. We'll assemble flower necklaces with pre-made flowers stampings, rivets and funky mismatched chain. Click the links for class info.
If you're worried about the heat, never fear! You'll be inside the lovely cool Embassy Suites in Paradise Valley making fabulous treasures, blissfully unaware of the temperature outside. Then you can join everybody on the misted patio or in the lobby for the evening manager's reception! There is also a fab pool, so you can take a late night dip to cool off and relax. Seriously, Art Unraveled is a great event and you will LOVE it! Sign up now before they fill!
