Published in Somerset Studio's Gallery- new issue!

I found out I was published today in the new issue (winter 2010) of Somerset Studio's Gallery magazine. Page 139, a black-and-white Stampbord hanging mailed in months ago. Woo hoo!
On a surreal note, my daughter broke both elbows ice skating last night. Casts from shoulder to fingertips on BOTH arms. My poor sweetie!

Holiday Musings

How is it the holidays arrive faster every year? Time seems to be whizzing by! Cindy and I were able to order the second proof for our upcoming book (pictured below). that has taken so many full days to correct and put together- creating a book is very challenging to say the least!
Now that the pressure of the new book is off, I am now putting together a class for our women's fellowship group where we will create art journals on the topic of the Fruit of the Spirit.
Organizing my neglected art and sewing rooms is also high on the agenda. Christmas is at my house this year, so the rooms need to be somewhat presentable. "A working artist is a messy artist" is my motto, unfortunately!
Wishing everyone a blessed and truly thank-filled Thanksgiving!

Back From Vacation and other notes

Just returned from our vacation and getting ready for a Winery Art Show at Gary Farrell Winery with Susan Chong (check out photos at I will post some of our pictures- the weather was great at Yosemite and the coast!
I received the first proof of our second volume of The Latest Trends series! Have to fix a few things, but this book should be ready after the next proof (keeping my fingers crossed!)
Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful fall of 2009!
