her NEW studio ..

So finally it is cooling off a little here in AZ .... I am spending more time out in my studio (cooling a 2 car garage is huge deal here ! )
So the space is finally starting to come together , i have hung a couple of chandeliers and am still hoping to hang a few more soon .. I have some fun ideas for lighting , but luckily too I have a couple windows which add some natural light and when its cool enough i can prop open the door to the garage ... we also painted the floors with concrete stain a nice chocolate brown ...
the garage is not directly attached to the house so you have a seperate entrance and it kinda feels like i am in my own little world here !  I have hung curtains in aqua and brown along the side where the garage door is ... you really have no idea your in a garage when you enter .. I have used fabric to hide all the door parts ...

  My plans for the future... a holiday open house and studio tour coming in November .... and next year I will be having a class in late January or early February so stay tuned !! 
hope you enjoyed the mini tour !! 
until next time

she loves glitterfest ...

 I had such a great time at Glitterfest in California ... Here is a peak at my table ( all photos are courtesy of my bestie Karin at Creative Chaos ..)

I also got to see many people including Jenny Doh and Beth Livesay from Stampington ... what a great surprise ... Jenny and I will be hanging out more at Silver Bella .. and I can't wait ...
so after glitterfest was done we went to meet a few friends at a local pub... here is Karin, Jenny and I posing with the guy we picked up ... After the dinner ( and a few too many drinks ) my mom and I headed back to our hotel where two other good friends (Michelle and Maija )  were staying too so we hung out at their room for awhile and had wayyyy too much fun and laughs  !!!( this photo was of Michelle and I at the Creative connection in Minnesota )  What a wonderful way to spend a weekend hanging with girfriends and having a ball !!! 

until next time ,
