I Will Be Teaching The Little Big Book of Dreams Class at Whimzy in Tustin, CA


I will be teaching again at my favorite shop, Whimzy in Tustin, CA on August 16th.  I'd love to have you in my class.

Click here to sign up.



It’s all in the tiniest of details with this visual dream recorder. 

Capture your dreams in a small book of chronicles that will be filled with vibrant and inspiring imagery, powerful thoughts, stories and words. Along with your storytelling we will learn how to add pretty petite illustrations and layers of color, paint and fun textures. We will utilize vintage books to pull words and portions to create clever and unique narratives. All of this will be wrapped into a fun little BIG book of dreams!

In my class you will learn how to create 4x4 pages covered with beautiful papers, figures and images and a myriad of other elements to depict a story. 

Lovely raw silk ribbon will tie all of your pages up into a luscious whimsical book.

All of the visual imagery along with lots of other special extras will be supplied in your class fee.

Check out the Whimzy website for a list of supplies and to sign up. 


Thanks so much for dropping by!

Have a fantastic day.

Phoebe and Her Friend Jingle

Phoebe Genevieve and her friend Jingle Monroe... smelling Springtime!

Phoebe loves to explore

but she never goes too far from me

Jingle has the biggest, prettiest eyes

They both fit into Phoebe's car seat (sort of)

Hope you're enjoying this beautiful month of May!  We were in the 90's just a couple days ago and today is was a very chilly low 60's, with lots of wind.

Have a lovely day!

A Faux Bunny for Easter


Now that's my kind of bunny!  

Check out this sweet Easter-themed necklace in my Etsy shop.  Hop over before its gone!





I remember my mom making my brother and me the coolest Easter baskets.  One year in particular we each received the prettiest, softest plush bunnies with satin ears, a multitude of beautiful candy eggs and even a chocolate bunny.  I recall little jelly beans were in various pastel colors and speckled with tiny dots to make them look real.  Everything was sitting on top of the prettiest plastic grass in the brightest colored basket.  Oh it was all so very lovely!  

I hope you are having a lovely month of April.  We've skipped Springtime here in L.A., or so it seems.  We're in the 80's this week and it's quite hot.

Cheers!

Custom Necklaces for Mother's Day

I'm taking special orders for Mother's Day.  Order soon as Mother's Day is May 11th.

Here is a necklace I made for my mom's birthday last month.


A pretty watercolor flower is the focal point for pendant.  

A custom order from a lovely woman who wanted to gift her sisters with a very special piece that they could keep close to their hearts after losing their brother.  WPK IV were his initials and she wanted the crosses included for their strong Catholic faith.  She also wanted vintage rosary beads and pretty little hummingbirds incorporated.  I just love how they turned out.  All set in resin inside the elongated heart pendants.


If you have a special brooch or trinket I can incorporate it into a necklace or bracelet as well.

Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to visit my Etsy shop for new pieces.

Have a wonderful day!

Happy April... Happy Spring!

My class at Whimzy last Saturday was so great! Here are a couple pages that I demonstrated.  A little paint, collage elements and doodling... voila! Easy and fun!

I was so inspired by watching the other artists "play" that I am already coming up with a theme for my next class!  


I have a few extra collage kits left.  Each kit is filled with tons of paper elements and six different collage sheets.  Please leave me a message if you're interesting in purchasing.

I hope you're enjoying the first day of April.  

Cheers!
