Valentines Swap

I just finished these for a Valentine Matchbox swap I'm in. I love the beautiful metal work they do in Mexico, and since I just came back from there- I was still very much inspired by the art I saw. Since the recipients haven't yet received their treats, I won't show the goodies inside, but all of them come from Mexico! I had fun shopping for tiny treasures down there!

Costa Mesa here I come!

The ink is still wet on the contracts! I'm busy adding teaching locations, and I'm proud to announce the latest: I'll be teaching at the CREATE Mixed Media Retreat in Costa Mesa California! This is the second event- the first was in Chicago last August. CREATE is organized by Interweave Press, LLC- the publishers of Cloth Paper Scissors, CPS Studios, American Artist and Quilting Arts magazine (just to name a few of their 19 magazines and 30 special publications.)
