For my daughter's 11th birthday, we had a party inspired by the show "Cupcake Wars!" Our family made our traditional cardboard cut-out decorations and baked 96 cupcakes. My daughter and her friends had tons of fun decorating their cupcakes and competing in all the cupcake games and contests! I was inspired to paint some mini cupcakes with my special frosting technique! Yum!

We recently hosted our first ever Art Open House! It was a lot of fun and a huge success! Our entire house was converted into a gallery. Each room had walls covered with original artwork (over 100 pieces) and filled with friends (over 50 guests)! I was able to showcase my "Cake Collection," "Colorful Creation" series, abstract landscapes, beeswax collage, prints, and notecards. My husband displayed his "Skateboard Series", "Jazz and Blues" cardboard series, "Salvation of Music" boxes, handmade paper sculptures, and silkscreen prints. My daughters had their recycled record bowls and jewelry, sea glass pendants, handmade paper flowers, clay pots, mini-canvas paintings and collage art for show and sale. What a fun, artful way to spend the day! Thanks everyone!

These works in progress have all been inspired by water. "Sun and Moon Mermaids" are gifts for friends. "Night Sea times 3" is an abstract experiment. "Waterlillies" was inspired by a photo I took this spring.
