Pinspiration: Story Skirts & More

I haven’t posted much #pinspiration (inspiring posts found on Pinterest) to facebook lately, so I thought I’d share some here! Although I did share this incredible Story Skirt yesterday, though: This jacket is another incredible piece and I’d love to create something for myself with a similar feel… And I don’t know what it is […]

Georgia O’Keeffe, Textile Artists, and…Port-a-Pottery!

A couple weeks ago, I went to the opening day of the exhibit Georgia O’Keeffe: Art, Image, Style, and it was fantastic. (I hope to go back next week.) I also swung by Wichita Pottery that day for their annual spring sale, and got to check out the Port-a-Pottery for the very first time. If […]

Cjoy Soulworks: Building Community through Art

Friday night, I was thankful to have a few minutes to check out the grand opening of Cjoy Soulworks, a community art studio and gallery owned by Wichita artist Casey Joy, who manages the space with artists Don Praseuth and Greg Walker. (The down side is that I only had a few minutes, as I […]

WAM Art Chatter: Take-Home

Friday night, I attended an Art Chatter at Wichita Art Museum for the first time; my friend Nina Winter was one of the presenters so I just had to go.  I’m glad I did, too, because all of the artists who talked were so inspiring and gave me a lot to think about… There were […]

Mini Junk Journal Flip Through

I’ve always been fascinated by zines, art journals, and the like. It’s only recently, however, that I’ve started actively creating them. This is a little flip-through of a little journal…it’s only partially finished. I hope to have some junk journal tutorials up soon…(and have been thinking about the possibility of offering kits in the shop? […]

At the ART SHOW!

I’ve been kind of lazy lately and didn’t blog about my recent art show at TISSU. As always, Nina is the most fabulous hostess ever and I’m so grateful she let me spend a few hours lurking around her gorgeous studio.  I’m also grateful to all who came out to see my stuff. The exhibit […]

Previously, my “art” shows have been mostly about paintings.  Secrets of the Prairie Spinster Society, […]

Luscious Velvet and Updates…

Happy Saturday!  I figured it was about time I give an update on what’s been going on around here.  I am working on adding new items to the shop, and these are a few new creations currently available… I just love this dusty rose/mauve velvet–it makes a great handwarmer.  It is so silky smooth and […]

You Can Art: Opinions from a Non-Expert (Mini Zine!)

One of my goals for this year is to try and create a zine each month…or at least, every other month…(I mean, let’s not get carried away!)  But I’m happy to say that so far, I’m on track.  This month’s zine features some mixed media/collage work and my thoughts on creating art.  It measures 2.75″ […]

Zine Love

God willing, 2018 will be the year of more ART. Often times, I am torn between my desire to create and my desire to sit on my backside and stare at books (…or the internet…a lot of times, the internet, if I’m being honest…) Anyway.  I mean to work on that.  I want to paint and […]
