It's been a long time dream to have a place where artists, crafters, and those who haven't found their inner 'craft goddess', can come and learn in a non-judgemental and inspiring environment. I believe art is essential to our overall well being. And I want to inspire as many artistic souls as I can!

The Theme is: UPCYCLED PAPER!
You won't believe the myriad of things you can do with old magazines! We'll be making paper beads, origami pendants, gift bows, collage, and maybe even some Zentangle demos!
RECYCLE by bringing an old magazine or any paper, and add it to the collective pot! That way, we'll have many choices in color and paper for all the projects! All other supplies will be provided and are FREE of charge! All projects are quick, fun, and for all levels of ability!
This event is hosted by Emily of Zween and Therese of Keyhole Gallery http://zween.wordpress.com/
"Craftifesto: The power is in your hands!
* Craft is Powerful: We want to show the depth and breadth of the crafting world. Anything you want you can probably get from a person in your own community.
* Craft is Personal: To know that something is made by hand, by someone who cares that you like it, makes that object much more enjoyable
* Craft is Political: We're trying to change the world. We want everyone to rethink corporate culture and consumerism.
* Craft is Possible: Everybody can create something."(by Cinnamon Cooper and Amy Carlton)

Her black and white photography captures the essence and bones of a once booming industrial city. Her attention to the elegant decay and textural geometric shapes conveys a love for the city and it's people. Come on down and feel the energy of Cleveland!

Hello all! My doll is a Steampunk Diva, full of moxy and ready for adventure!! Off for a quick hop over the pond, to her first destination! She has a cloth body, wire hands, and a polymer sculpted head. No feet yet, but who knows what she will collect along the way!
My journal is an altered sketchbook, with canvas cover and backing. There aren't many pages, in hopes of inspiring ingenuity! I hope she travels fast!

This piece is a study in Recycling. I used pictures of past art creations, cut them up, layered and created a new design! I really enjoy this process, it lets you recycle yourself into your art! And each new creation can be recycled again and again!
Until next time!
