Newest Quilt - and it was commisioned

Here I present my newest creation. This is a baby quilt, which was commissioned by a local person. The theme that her daughter came up with was a beach/ocean bedroom for her soon to arrive baby boy. So i took examples of the crib sheets that she had picked and came up with this really cute and cool surfer quilt. Personally, i love it. I don't always get overly excited about one of my "creations," but this one was fun to think about, pick out the fabric for, and then create and make. And it is really ooohhh soooo soft. I hope they enjoy it.

Another of our artist seems to always be full of great ideas, which she gets really excited about. Meet Corinne Sullivan (Day Dream Art Studio Blog ), who love to make sunshine and cheer with just about everything she does. She makes jewelry and here she is adding her style to her display walls for her booth, for her next craft fair. They are wonderful.

And to top that all off she loves to give that joy to her children and their friends by passing on her love of creating. Great job Corinne.

Well I'd Love To Say....

...that I have been on the ball the last two weeks. But the reality is that I have been somewhat on vacation.. Mostly in my mind, but still after teaching solidly since January and finally getting two weeks completely to myself has been too tempting. So again I make up for my lack of diligence and want to express my delight with Flory's poetry, which was featured last week and Teresa this week with her beautiful jewelery. It looks like all of us have been having varying degrees and heavy work and blissful quietude.

A Little Naughty But NICE

I don't know, there seems to be a allure in the air. Have you ever wondered why certain things seems to happen in synchronicity with one another?

I was thinking about what to write about in my blog this week and checking out all my different ports, if you will, on the Internet, when I came across my friend Laurie's plea to buy her corset. It is just adorable. So I decided to help out in a little promotion for her and I thought that I could tie it into Skwigga-zine blog ring promotion, when low and behold I discovered that we are promoting our own Skwigga-zine this week. Today when I went to our front page there was all the eye candy of wonderful bits and pieces that we all work so hard on and one in particular that went with my idea was Corinne Sullivan's new painting, which she was showing us on our magazine. Just what I needed. So now I am really thinking out three different elements of promotion. Laurie and her great designs in corset and just about anything else you might want (such a talent), Corinne and her new painting, which is flirty, sweet and a little naughty, and Skwigga-zine, because it really affords us the opportunity to get out there and hopeful encourage us to be seen!!!!!!

"This is a blue and white vinyl corset lined with corset weight coutil. It is boned with Rigelene so it is great as a fashion top or as a corset. It is bound with red bias tape and laces up the center back with 12 silver eyelets "

Corinne's newest painting.... "Everyone Found Her Charming... 'But She Was A Mess Inside'. 16 x 20, mixed media.This painting is a mixed media experiment where I painted an under painting in acrylic, collage translucent paper over it and painted the pinup and border in oils. I then set Swavorski crystals into the painting for a little extra sparkle. This painting will be in the PAPA Gallery in Paducah starting today through the end of October."
So enjoy and give all these artists your sincere contemplation. They are all very talented and without Missy of Skwigga-zine some of this might not be possible
