Alter It Monthly - July

Alter It Monthly theme - Home Sweet Home
My home sweet home dwells within my spirit house.

Keep those creative juices flowing...

Well, I have discovered a way to keep my mind and creativity active. Joining these cool blog sites that feature a monthly theme. First one I joined was Mixed Media Monday and the next Alter It Monthly. What a cool concept. No mailing and no pressure. Simply create, download and share. How easy is that? I remember so well what Leighanna Light once told me. "Do something everyday, even if its just painting gesso on a canvas. It keeps your creative mind flowing". That is so true. So, maybe this is the new thing in the A/MM world? Love It!

Greetings from Geralyn

Heading to the shore this summer? Check out Greetings from Geralyn located in the Arcade Pavillion on Cookman Avenue. Wow, finally it looks like we will have a cool spot to create and shop in. So well needed. Geralyn is a doll and her shop along with others inside are real gems. She carries an array of greeting cards, craft supplies and artwork. Please stop in and check out her class schedule. I will be teaching a greeting card class from 3-5 pm on August 27th. Looking so forward to it. Best of Luck Geralyn!

"The Paint Place"

Wow, I finally did it. I set up a show and sale at The Paint Place in Asbury Park, NJ. The show features my collage art pieces. I can't tell you how many people have asked me when I would show my work. Well, I dabbled a bit at the local gallery in Red Bank, NJ and it boosted my confidence. It is really a test to put yourself and creativity out there. I've been out there before, but since 9/11 things have been pretty slow. But my faith is strong and God told me its time move it along. I can't get anymore push than that. (smile)
The Paint Place is a lovely boutique that carries an ecclectic collection of beautiful handmade italian mosaics (created by the proprietor), jewelry and local artisans work. It is located at 605 Cookman Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ. My show runs from July 2 - 19th. You can meet me the artist on July 11th between 3-6 pm. Hope to see you there.

Hot Fun in the Summertime

Just got back from giving my sinuses a vacation. How does that work? I went to Scottsdale AZ for a week. I just have to say 2 things, beautiful city and I could breathe. I was taken back at how lovely that area of Arizona was. We drove from Las Vegas to Scottsdale and it was fabulous. We stayed at the beautiful Pheonician Hotel and Resort. I have never been before but one thing is guaranteed, I will be back. I had fun visiting the art museums, shops and the very very cool stamp stores and their owners. The city people were wonderful and friendly. I want to thank both proprietors of the Frenzy Stamper and the Creative Quest for keeping my creative juices flowing while on vacation. If you go to Scottsdale stop in their shops you won't come out empty handed. Guaranteed. I can attest to that. (hee hee hee) For me, this was one of my favorite vacations. "Hot Fun In The Summertime"!
