Favorite Color Workshop

I so enjoy providing space, materials, and inspiration so that others can create!  Today it happened for some of my young artist friends {aka students!}  We focused on monochromatic art.  Some of these works will be available for viewing at Nine Muses Art Gallery in February.

If you want to see more art options for kids, click on the tab above titled, "Art Classes for Kids."

Here are a few of my favorite photos from works in progress:

Celebration of the Solstice

Today is the Winter Solstice.  It is the longest night of the year.  I was delighted when Sam asked if we could go on a solstice hike.  I feel that part of my creative expression is providing and participating in such activities.  Below is a bit of the documentation of magical moments at the start of a long night that dawns with hope!  Here's a wish that you might feel magic and hope and inspiration.

Last Minute Gifts and Shopping Trips

Are you looking for last minute gifts?  I have you covered!!

Coconut macaroons.  These little cookies pack a big punch, and I will ship them anywhere in the continental U.S.

Crafting Adventure Club.  How fun to have a creative adventure every single month of 2017.  {If you're looking for something a little smaller, there are 3 and 6 month memberships, and one time passes.}

Restoration and Renewal Toolbox.  This is a great little anytime online retreat for teachers to refocus in a gentle and self paced way.

Magic Wands.  Can't everyone use a little more magic in life?!  I will add a name to any wand or you can request customized color combos, as time permits.

Painting Party.  Why not provide your friends or family with a lovely evening of painting together?  You provide the space and treats, and I provide all the painting materials.  Email me to schedule your party date.  {I have some days available over winter break!}

Original Art.  I create a variety of whimsical and inspiring pie…

Flower Fairies

I love these little flower fairies more and more with each one I make.  I see personality and enthusiasm for an enchanted life begin to appear in them during the creative process.

The fairy is tied to the make magic card with some rustic twine.  The back of the card reads as follows:

Meet your new Flower Fairy!
Your first job is to design the setting of your fairy's adventures.  Will you make a forest, a garden, and ocean, or an outer space scene?  Use paints, crayons or colored pencils on the background.  {You might use both sides to create 2 different scenes!}
Enjoy many adventures with your fairy!

There is a 12 x 4.5 inch piece of sturdy watercolor paper tucked in the middle.

If you see one you must have EMAIL me immediately, so that I can invoice you and get it into your hands.  Unclaimed fairies are going on home seeking adventure on Wednesday, so act quickly.  $12 includes shipping!

Special requests are always considered!

Coconut Macaroons are Delicious and Available for a Limited Time

I remember coming home from college one December with no idea for how I was going to pay for books the next semester.  My mom and I sold her delicious fudge by special order, and by the time I went back to school I had enough money for books.

Most of my income streams dry up between mid December and mid January, but the bills keep coming.  So I was thinking about food I make that people think is super delicious, and I'm going with my coconut macaroons.  People LOVE them!  Even some people who don't think they like coconut like these.

So here is what I'm doing:

For the next month I am baking and selling my super delicious coconut macaroons packaged in a large Chinese food container with some colorful tissue paper.  The price is $10 for a baker's dozen.  Pick up is at my house in Barberton.  The pick up schedule is listed below.  I will ship anywhere in the continental U.S. for $4 a box.  If you're local I will deliver orders of 8 or more boxes to you for FREE.
