Sooo long time no write...
The baby boy that has entered our life is almost 7 months old...ofta I have to tell ya that having a baby this late in the game is a little trickier than I thought...sweeter but definitely tricky!
It is that time of year for Art Prize and this year I am working with a wonderful ceramicist named Heather Robinson. You can view some of her amazing work locally at Minty Keen located in down town Grand Rapids and also at http://www.etsy.com/shop/paperpeacock?ref=ss_profile . I am excited to see the combination of the organic shapes mixed with my fiber work!
Here is a short description of the installation piece:

No link no picture just news!
A baby a brand new baby will join the brood some time in the later month of October. Things have slowed down for a while and I have been catching up on all things/projects/quilts for customers. We are finding out what we are having this Tuesday which made me wish this wish as it kicked to let me know it too was awake.
"Let the sweet baby be one of one (even though I know it is one), be kind, healthy, gentle, and sweet."
Over and over again I asked this.
This news came with an original arrival date of October 14th, making Art Prize seem a little out of reach this year. However, the date has been moved and I have again made the amazing commitment to take part in one of the largest open art competitions ART PRIZE! I will be at DeVos Place once again. So wonderful to be a part of this competition in a equally amazing venue.
"Stormy Night" will be seen as part of a salon show at Aunt Dofe's Hall of Recent Memory in Willow Creek MT opening up during the summer art walks that take place the 3rd Friday of every month. I am excited to have this piece hang where the concept was originally conceived.
Visit http://www.auntdofe.com to view the gallery space.
One more juried show in Northville MI (around Detroit/Novi area) to get the juices flowing and concentrate more on the fine art I love to create......just as soon as I finish my back log!
Thanks friends for joining me on this wild ride we call life!

Thank you to my new friends I met at the MSU show! I owe a special thanks to Emily of Bricolage Studios for coming on Sunday to help me at the show and the pack up mess! Another thanks goes to Jane Hanna for sitting with me amongst the hoards of folks that walked past on Saturday. Without these two ladies the show would have been crazier insane than any show I have done! It goes without saying The MSU show is over and it was slightly laborious.
I have a larger stock then normal and will begin posting to Etsy this afternoon provided I can find my camera and a new battery! I will also be taking more scarves and pins to the Battle Creek Arts Center for their Holly Mart that runs the rest of this month, an art walk in Allegan at Baker Allegan Studios Friday the 10th, and a final show at Flourish Art Market in Grand Rapids on Saturday December 18th. SOOOoooo get em while they are hot..cuz they won't stick around for long!
The new scarves are full of cashmere, silks, hand dyed, bumpy wool from LLC. Farms, drop spindled yarns from http://www.bricolageStudios.etsy.com art bats, and some of her hand spun yarns as well. SHHHHWEEETNESS!
Off to school with the boys....have a great day everyone!
