Making a Turn...

Today is a good day!  There is a slight breeze outside and the sun is shinning brightly.  I am blessed and happy to be alive!  I have been a bit absent for a while.  Not much in the mood to write or share.  I feel I have made a turn and glad to be back!

•My friend Sarah Fishburn has been messing the Photoshop brushes and she is very hooked!  You must visit her blog to check out her work.  Also don't miss out on the latest issue of  Pasticcio Zine.  I'm not saying this because there is an awesome review of Paperbag Studios in it, but it is a great zine.  It is published by Sarah and Angela Cartwright.  Get your copy here!

•Thank-you Sarah for your cool shots taken on Photo Booth.  I played with mine a little this morning and here is my contribution...

•Our hummingbirds are back!  It is truly amazing to me how when they arrive we see them hovering outside the dining room window.  It is the same every year..."Hello!  We're back and we want you to hang up the food!"  They are marvelous creatures!

•Heading to the beach this weekend for some needed rejuvenation!  I know I live at the beach, but it is more fun to go to someone else's beach!  I will take tons of pictures to share!

•My latest craving is this:  "a rich, buttery, crescent-shaped roll of leavened dough or puff paste."  In other words, I'm hooked on Target's Croissants.  Help me!!

•I want to give a shout out to my dear friends in Nashville who recently returned from El Salvador. I was unable to go on this year's medical mission trip and I know I missed a great experience.  Welcome home, guys!

•Go Tennessee!  The Lady Vols are National Champs!

•I found this great site for free personal use Photoshop Brushes. Check it out here!

•For all of you stampers out there...check this out!

Exhibition 36...

Blog36Book

I am excited to show off the cover of the upcoming release by Susan Tuttle, a creative collaborative called Exhibition 36: A Gallery of Mixed-Media Inspiration.  The book will hit Amazon's warehouse on November 17, 2008, and will be in bookstores shortly after in the US, UK, Europe, Canada, and Australia.  It is available now for pre-order at Amazon.

Book Description:

"Within the pages of Exhibition 36, readers will enter a virtual art exhibit featuring thirty-six mixed-media artists whose collage, digital, assemblage, altered and repurposed art adorn the walls and pedestals of this unique gallery. The artists are "present" throughout the exhibit, answering questions, sharing their thoughts, talking about their work and offering instruction. The tour is structured to provide insight into the creative process of the artists whose work is on display and the reader will be delighted with the plethora of inspiration, articles, techniques and general visual candy. As a final bonus, many artists featured in the book have contributed imagery as a gift to readers for attending the exhibit to reuse in their own creations.

Possesses great crossover appeal for mixed-media artists of nearly every discipline, including jewelry makers, collage artists and more.

Readers will enter a "virtual tour" featuring art from a variety of contributing artists, including well-known crafters such as Claudine Hellmuth (Collage Discovery Workshop) and Suzanne Simanaitis (Kaleidoscope).

Includes bonus collage imagery sheets for readers to use in their own art." ~Amazon.com

Forgot to mention it, but my work is in this book, too!

Back to School...

Btsnew 
Well, I did it!  I made the decision to go back to college and I am starting with a Graphic Design class this summer.  I plan to take one class each semester in visual arts.  I even have a student ID, which gets me discounts! How cool is that!  I'm very excited as I have been wanting to do this for a very long time!!!  What one thing would you like to do if you could?  What's holding you back?

Have a  blessed day!

New Stamps...

I love it when things are ahead of schedule!  My new rubber stamp designs at Paperbag Studios are now available.  These were designed with those who journal and scrapbook in mind, but will work well in traditional rubber stamping designs!
