New Line of Art Debuting This Weekend!

I have been talking about some new art that I have been working on for about a month now, and it's finally ready to be unveiled this weekend! Yay!

My new line will consist of wall art as well as jewelry, all made from vinyl records! How cool is that?! I can't wait to show you. If fact the first piece has already been listed. Check it out here . It's a wall cross cut from a vinyl record and then painted.

I will be listing at least 2 more items this weekend, but hopefully more and there will be several to follow over the next few weeks. I will also be taking custom orders on these so if you have a design you would like me to work on for you please contact me anytime. And it doesn't just have to be crosses if you have another idea that you would like me to work out for you, let me know that too!

I am super excited about this project and I can't wait to see what you all think too, so leave your comments. Also leave a comment if you have other things that you would like to see me try.

Art Show and Updates

Hello to all my avaid readers out there. I am sorry it has taken me so long to write anything on here. We have had a couple health scares around here lately and we are still waiting for the results of some tests but things seem to be quieting down a bit now so I think I can get back on track with things. Thanks to those of you who are still around you are why I keep at it.

I wanted to share some pics with you tonight of some items I picked up at a local art show a couple blocks from my house. Hopefully next summer I will be back up and running enough that I will be in the show next year!

The first piece is from Hands on Clay, owned by Karen Levy. She has some great nature pieces {bowls, plates and other similar items} In the shape of leaves or have leaf impressions in them. Beautiful colors! But the pieces I was drawn to are her lace inspired bowls and plates. I have seen these done before but the patterns that she used were absolutely stunning. Check out the one I pick up, you will see what I am talking about. If you like what you see you can email her at She does custom orders too!

The second piece I purchased was from Small House Pottery , from Sanger, TX. This wonderful husband and wife team {Jim and Susan Huckaby} make beautiful pottery items that you can use in your kitchen on a daily basis. They have everything from mixing bowls {which I got} to canisters, apple bakers to salsa and chip bowls and everything in-between. They have that great Texas hospitality attitude that I miss. Plus they are from the town that I lived in the last 5 years. {Yes I know I had to come to Chicago to meet some neighbors in Sanger, ha ha}. They travel all over the US so if you would like to see their items in person chances are they will be near you at some point this year, including back home in Texas for the L D Bell Craft Fair in Hurst. You won't want to miss them or miss an opportunity to grab some of their items!

Stay tuned, I will have some exciting news in the next week about a new line of items I will be releasing soon and a new contest just for you blog readers. Can't wait to tell you.

***Also if you have anything new coming up let me know, I may want to feature it here on my blog and facebook and twitter! Talk to you soon.
