honored, overwhelmed and so cool...

This is my friend Jo. 
She has a new magazine. 
She makes it all look so easy, but she works so hard everyday and the results help so many...
Please join me in celebrating her achievement...
I also owe Jo a debt of thanks for for letting me tell my own story... and once again, be a part of hers in WWC: BUSINESS...
This new publication is brimming with stories of passion and success, of women entrepreneurs, the tales of how they've made it happen, why they've worked so hard, and tips on how to turn inspiration into economy.
I really am honored to be included in the first issue...

This is a 10 page article, but no ruing the surprise here, you'll have to catch it in print...it was a neat thing for me to tell my story of how all this happened...what made it possible, and why I do it.
Here are some of my fave shots of the lab, these made it into the article....
Me and a camera, what else is new?
This is a stairwell down from the lab, the walls are lined with our old event cards and posters and signs, the steps are actually signed like a guest book...

Piles of art, just how I like it...
I think of myself as an altar-builder with collections and textures 
piled ceiling -high...
And, I could do none of this alone...if it was not for the line-up of artists, there would be no Earth Angels, I want to thank each and everyone of them that has worked with me over the years...at last count Sue, Michelle and I counted almost 80 that I worked with over the years and are no longer among the active roster of artists (some have retired, some have pursued other paths and careers, some are no longer actively creating...)....so much talent....so much growth.
And of course, I need to that all the fellow entrepreneurs with whom I have worked to co-host events too! 
Thanks Amanda, Jeanine, Phyllis, Darren, and Joyce.
We're all in this together and our success and fulfillment is tied to so many others, so many kindred spirits.

It's business, but so much more...and I am thrilled to share it with you.
Thanks Jo for making this all possible.

xxoo Jen
