It's been whirlwind two weeks, with CHA Vegas behind us, this week was Art Unraveled in Phoenix as a vendor at the Shopping Extravaganza!

So many Artists participate in the event, Pam Carriker, Seth Apter, Chris Cozen, Kari McKnight Holbrook, The King of Doom - Michael DeMeng, Laura Fraedrich, Cindy Kovack, Barb Hamilton, the list goes on!

It feels so wonderful to be in the midst of so many people who "GET IT".    Art is Life!   Life is Art! The people who produce the event are incredible and make it seem effortless!    Linda Young and her husband are the BEST!   Thanks to all who visited our Booth and those who bought from us.  Please tell your friends and send them on over to and

Above is one of the most wonderful helpers ever, 
Ingrid "Squirrel" Vient.

I get NO respect!!!

Laura Fraedrich is holding the treasure I bought from her, I picked him because she said he had the best HAIR and it's all about the HAIR!   He is actually very frightening but in a sweet way!   

We were so fortunate to have Karen Elaine doing demos at our booth with FAMOUS SPLASH INKS. People learned allot about the product and bought many sets to create fabulous ART.  

THANK YOU Karen Elaine, Artist Supreme of Arizona! 

Above is Karen with Cynthia Phelps, near our booth. We look forward to partnering with Karen for more shows and collaborating on some exciting new products too!   Stay Tuned for that info!

Let's have a glorious Week making Art and enjoying life.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
