...so honored... thanks Where Women Create

I am truly honored...
I was in the very first issue of 
Where Women Create magazine 10 years ago...
and this month...I'm in there once again sharing how my business has changed and grown over the years...I am so grateful.

The article is a whopping 10 pages and laden with peeks at the new space and my comments on being in business -- starting with my first show as a hobbyist in 1994 -- to going full time, to finally finding a space (a very BIG space) of my own...
 
 A huge thanks to Jo Packham for once again acknowledging me and including me among the many and talented women in business who are among the pages each issue....
 And a heartfelt and HUGE thanks to Ben Ashby for the images that provide the backdrop to my story...

I have a limited number of copies available on my site... HERE

...a peek at the recent workshop....BLYTHE MEET UP & WORKSHOP part II

...we gathered at the new home of Earth Angels Studios for fun and friendship...
 
...AND LEARNING!
 
...before we started the supplies were laid out...
 

Led by my friend and talented artist, Diane Mall Sammarco of DM Blythe, all in attendance were treated to a feast of knowledge on how to begin the sanding and carving process, a yummy lunch, and a wonderful dose of support and encouragement from kindred spirits.

It was a never forget day in the space...
Robin worked hard to sculpt a lovely pair of lips...

Lori Ann and Suza were star students!
...a before and an after from DM Blythe...
We had raffle prizes for dolly trivia questions...
