what i've been working on

Hey everyone! i thought i'd share some photos of some of the things that I've been creating in my studio lately. I keep saying how "busy" i am, so i figured I'd show some pics of what I've busy at. In between creating, I've been taking an online class with Sally Jean to create one of her fabulous chandeliers. This project was a lot more involved that I anticipated and I've had to slowly make gains on my Chandy; but it is coming along and looking beautiful. Still have much to do on it!

also, my bff, Jane and I have been working on an online soldering class for next January. We've completed our projects (which will be unveiled later on our new blog). We will begin filming the class this summer and want to launch it in January 2013 (you know the time of year where we are sad that the holidays are over and starting to get a little bored of winter already? perfect timing!) if you think you might be interested, be sure and sign up for my newsletter (right column)

In mid April, I am debarking on a cross country trip driving from New Jersey to California where I will be teaching at Artistic Affaire. I'm turning it into a journey of sorts visiting friends along the way and just taking the time to discover myself again. I'm really looking forward to it. It will be a long drive, but I've broken it down into some easy driving and great stops along the way. Once I am there, I will teach and vend and then i will spend the next few weeks playing in my home state and visiting family before heading home again.
