On the Radio and in the Studio

I was on the radio yesterday with Shelley Irwin and Danny Beckett from Spearia talking about Funamals and what it takes to be an entrepreneur! It was a blast.

I have also been busy in the studio. Check out the newest etsy listings!

I am working on combining my textiles and watercolor even more into my upcycled mess of things. Everything has been evolving so much lately. I've had to stop and rethink my steps as the world seems to be shifting greatly in my mind.

Other than that, I did not get much done today because I had a really bad headache that ceased the majority of my day. Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive. I am in the middle of organizing things around here. It becomes a survival skill as the business grows. I appreciate any and all words of advice on getting and staying organized ;)

I just got back from the Lake Michigan Art Walk. It was one of those weeks that was go go go trying to get ready. This week a spent a lot of time focusing on my framed paintings. They are continuing to evolve. Here is an example of my newest painting. I have added a lot more textile and some flowers made out of egg cartons.

My watercolor magnets are continuing to gain popularity along with my greeting cards. To see those and more pictures from the art walk click here.

Late Fall Summary

Well here we are it is 11/11/10 and it has been a while, but I promise to work on posting more frequently. Last week I was at the "Recycled Art Market" at City High in Grand Rapids, MI.

This weekend I will be at the Lake Michigan Art Walk.

Working hard on my etsy store. Making lots of improvements.

Today I was assisting Artgoodies in her studio.

I will be having an event on December 4th at Minty Keen in downtown Grand Rapids where you can get custom portraits of pets painted--a great gift idea for the animal lover you know. There will be more information on that soon. Until then enjoy these pictures from this weeks restock.

In January I will be doing a bedroom makeover for a little boy!

Hope all is well! Happy post halloween and pre thanksgiving :)
