Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

FLAT STANLEY...comes to visit

These two are finished....I think...antique roses from my yard.... Opps, forgot to add the swirly stamping!....later... WHO is Flat Stanley? Well, he was sent to me by a fourth grader , Judith, at the LaGrange Intermediate School and he will be used to teach letter writing, map skills, history, and public speaking. Judith will give the class an oral report on Stanley's travels and adventures....while visiting with us. He is on vacation at our house, and ... well, I don't know how to break it to him but he is going to have to work with me a little here in the art studio before we can go to the Zoo on Saturday .... others will join us for a fun day. OKAY, so here is what Flat Stanley has been assisting me with in the studio .... he mostly watches and gives me hints as to where I've gone wrong! I'm used to that.... so here is what we did using some of my newly designed collage papers using photos from my yard or house elements like old fabrics....two are finished and two have just been started...Excuse me! ....what "I" did!!! Scoot over Stanley .... he's really a sweet boy. You can read about Stanley's adventures at http://flatstanley.enoreo.on.ca/ ... it is a great school project. Enjoy!!
