Our family had an Awesome Artful Adventure last Saturday thanks to professional artist and author Sandra Magsamen! We traveled two hours to her event just outside of Baltimore, MD and it was well worth the trip! Sandra was fun, generous, gracious, and oh so Artful! Our whole family had such a wonderful time visiting with Sandra and her family! Check out Sandra's book "Living Artfully" and her website www.sandramagsamen.com. Her inspirational work can be found everywhere from Hallmark to Walmart. Thanks again Sandra!
Our creative energies have been spent setting up our new house, hosting guests, and celebrating birthdays! All of which we have enjoyed! Here are some photos of our daughter's Alice in Wonderland Party. My husband created huge cardboard character cutouts and turned our entire basement into Wonderland. I was in charge of the cake (a cheshire cat, per our daughter's request), games and party favors. We even dressed up as Wonderland characters to greet our guests. A good time was had by all!

I'm so excited--we just moved into our New Home on Wed! It's absolutely beautiful and I LOVE everything about it! I can't wait to set up shop and start painting. I painted the "butterfly field" the day I miraculously found our dream home. We had already sold our home and couldn't find anything we liked. We were at the end of our rope. This house appeared out of nowhere, all the stars aligned and now the home is ours! I painted the "home is where your heart is" as our change of address announcement. On another note, the new Dare County Arts Council Gallery in Manteo, NC is now officially open and has my sea creatures on display. Stop by if you're in OBX.

My family hosted our first "Art Night" last week and I shared what I learned at Claudine Hellmuth's Beeswax Collage Workshop. We all had a blast playing with our paints, papers, pastels, and wax. My kids can't wait to do it again. Thanks Claudine for introducing us to the wonderful world of beeswax!

I'm so excited about the Beeswax Collage Class I took with artist Claudine Hellmuth at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria, VA! It was so much fun and now I'm hooked!
I completed three pieces at the workshop and can't wait to get started on another one. Thanks to my husband and mom for babysitting and encouraging me to go. Thanks to my table mates and neighbors for sharing supplies and adding to my experience.
And thanks to Claudine for opening a whole new dimension of collage for me!
