Well it has been a while since I have written on my blog. So much as happened. The month of October was pretty busy, as usual, I went to the Art Is You Retreat and took some fabulous classes. I took a journaling class with Kim Geiser and made a book that I am still working on and it is coming out fantastic.!!
I actually learned how to solder a matchbox!! Pictures to come. I took a class with Jenny & Aaron on how to use a palette knife to paint and decoupage, I learned how to make a small book with soldering and stamping with Lynne Suprock and her wonderful friend and assistant Cheryl, and of course the wonderful Andrea De Meng's class was fantastic. We made a collage and I love the way it came out and we even learned how to use tools such as the dremel which was great because I have two and have never used either one!!
It was nice to see my old friends and meet some new ones as well.
I was on the Punk You Girl Lolita Design Team, but decided it was time to move on and guess what? I applied for a position on a new DT called Creative Canvas Brands. I never thought I would make it as it is a huge team and to my surprise, they invited me to join and my job will be crew member doing Vintage work which is my favorite thing to do!!
It sounds like tons of fun, I am getting to meet new people and will be making my first design due on December 1st so watch out for it.
On Sunday, January 4th, my heart is going pitter patter seriously, because I will have a piece of my artwork shown in a gallery called the Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery at the Art League of Long Island.
It is a big piece 24x24. I had a piece in a smaller gallery a few months ago, but this is a larger scale and it is so exciting.
Last month I was published in Just Steampunk Magazine, not only on the cover!! but I got a three page spread in the magazine. I am just jumping for joy. I am going to add some pictures so you can see what I have been up to.
THEN, I spoke to the person in charge of art work at my local library and she wants me to put my collages on one of their walls, but that will come later as I am so busy right now.

I don't know if I posted this but here is a picture of the piece that was in a small gallery in my town
I also want to mention that for three years now I have been a part of Adelphi University's Breast Cancer silent auction for women with this horrible disease. We have to design a bra inside and out and the straps as well. Here is my latest one that I made. Then they have a reception with the silent auction and it is fabulous!!
