Spring Greetings Everyone!

I hope this finds you and yours well and ready for some nice weather! It is sooo pretty here in Oregon today! I fell asleep in the sun and slept for an hour and a half…..purrrrrrrrr!

Well as many of you know I went back to work…part time…..a couple of months ago but much to my surprise…I LOVE IT! I’m working at US Bank about 17-20 hours a week! My daughter in law calls it the “princess shift”! hahaha! I am really enjoying my co-workers and the customers and surprisingly enough my art seems to be flourishing now too! I think I felt such pressure to make art that sells that I lost sight of just why I make art! I now feel freed up to make whatever my little heart desires and the pressure is off! It’s funny the things we kick and scream trying to prevent when all along that was what was going to make us happy anyway!

I wanted to let you all know that I have some of my “block assemblages” on ebay right now! For some reason I get more requests for those than almost anything else I make! I already sold one yesterday before I could even get my newsletter out! It was my favorite…..SUGAR AND SPICE! I have them on auction style BUT have also placed “buy it nows” on them if you just cannot wait! If you want to take your chances just place a bid and the buy it now will “go away”! Please let me know if you have any questions! If you click on the link directly below it will take you to ebay where you can see them much better!

One of my wonderful customers also gave me a great idea! She loved my artist trading card sheets of some of the sets I’ve done in the past but wanted more! So just for her (and you!) I made some up the other day and I think you will really like them! I took my favorites on a certain subject and grouped them together on a sheet to make 8 artist trading cards. They also make FUUUUN greeting cards and I will be sending instructions for BOTH with your atc sheet! I have them up for auction on ebay BUT don’t buy them from ebay cuz you will end up paying more than you need to! If you are interested in purchasing any just email me back with the ones you like and I will send you an invoice. If you are reading this you may have any of my collage sheets at 4.99 per sheet with 3.50 for shipping BUT if you purchase all 5 I will ship them to you free! (the buy 5 and get them shipped free applies to any collage sheets I have!) Just drop me an email! PLEEEEASE put your email address in the body of the email! Sometimes they don't show up!! I will probably eventually have them in my ebay store but for right now auctions have better visibility and I’d like to get the word out! THANK YOU SO MUCH MISS SUZY for the FAB idea! Here’s the link for those!

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful day and a fabulous “rest of the month”! I love you all and want to thank you again for all the years of supporting my art! I have met soooo many WONDERFUL people! Drop me a line ANYTIME! I’d love to get to know you too!

Lots of love!
