tell me what you like...can you give me your opinion

...I struggle with what to share here 
and in our email updates...

So can I ask your help? 

What do you want to see and read about?
New arrivals or artist profiles??

My personal and business journeys??
Peeks at our events or news of them coming up???

My editorial work??

It's hard for me to know what content to share on ....I have so much going on and so many irons in the fire and I am not sure what you are looking for
... so tell me!

I appreciate your support and your time is valuable!
Please email me at Jen@EarthAngelsStudios - or - comment here - or - give me some kind of shout out if you are interested in seeing MORE of anything...
reading more about anything...etc!

Likewise, let me know if your BLOG reading has dropped out a bit...and you rely on more visual stimulation like Pinterest or Instagram to feel connected....let me know!
 
In the meantime... here's a peek at some collages that I have been sharing on the email to show what's new on the site as we enter the sweet season of Valentine's and all things PINK and PRETTY!

Hope you can catch us at our next appearance in NEWBURGH, NY at the uber cute and totally fabulous shop SJ VINTAGE 1923...

We'll be doing an artful Pop-Up on Friday and Saturday -- February 2nd & 3rd from 10-4 each day...sure hope you can be there for our 12th Annual
"heART of winter" event with 
Sue Parker and Jen O'Connor 
as special guests of Danielle Kugler and Lisa Pisani...


As ever, thanks for your support and I hope that 2018 is off to a good start for you!

...have you encountered Colleen???

If you don't already know the work of Colleen Attara...
I hope you can encounter it soon...
I say this because her art speaks to me in in such a deeply personal way...


...so, it was nothing short of a true honor and unfettered joy that I visited Colleen at her studio to photograph her space and profile her for my column in Where Women Create magazine...
 Thanks to Jo Packham for the opportunity to share more about Colleen and her artful business in my column, "The Business of the Studio"...
 Colleen finds beauty in castoffs, words and recycled goods...she creates art and teaches...she is so very gifted.

You can read more about Colleen in the new issue...the cover looks like this:
Thanks Colleen...for allowing me to encounter your art, your space, and to share more about your business journey.

....you are a treasure to me...
I miss you and hope to see you soon...
....in the meantime, I am keeping your art and good vibes close

...it's time...I have to ask

It's time for me to ask you to  

I love the BLOG, I love being able to have a voice and tell a story. And back in -- was it 2005??? -- I can remember being thrilled to sit and pour it all out -- images and companion text -- to tell you about whatever I was thinking....

But, as a visual person, Instagram gives me an opportunity to do that - quickly -- and so much more frequently...


I can share snippets and peeks...at my day...at my work...at my life...
a way for me to show you what I am up to when I don't have time to post to the BLOG...

So if you are not already among the folks following me -- and you read this -- please consider following me....

AND if you think I should be following you.... tell me and leave a comment on my Instagram page...

thanks ... and yes these are recent posts...just a peek!

...my feature in the new issue....congrats to Julie Arkell...



...seeing artists at work 
and sharing that magic...

It's days like these I am firmly reminded just how much 
I love my job...

...and how much I love the artful souls with whom I work to share what they make...not just by selling their creations via my shop, but by sharing what they do in my photos and writings.
 ...it's days like these when I am able to share what I love, that I perhaps treasure my handmade life the most.

 xo to Jo Packham for the opportunity to do a piece on Julie Arkell in the new issue of Where Women Create magazine...

 ...and of course, a huge thanks to my long time pal across the many miles....thanks go to you, Julie Arkell, for sharing your style, your artistry and a peek at your utterly amazing studio and workspace...
I've worked with Julie for about a dozen years now, selling her art on my site...and her work brings me such joy...it's has a certain magic....


The cover of the new issue 
looks like this...

 

Hope you can pick up a copy and enjoy a browse...there are so many great stories in this issue...
xo Jen
