A Big Thank You!

The minutes, hours, and days of this year has gone by so quickly.  Between juggling family life, classes, and creating art the time has flown by so quickly.  I was so happy to share my art creations with the customers at the ArtCraft Studio Show this year.  The customers were great and I enjoyed meeting everyone.

I also wanted to send out a BIG THANKS to everyone who purchased a piece from me this year. You helped contribute to some great charities.  I always take a portion of my sales and donate to local charities. These donations will provide nurturing, stability and support for homeless children and their families as they prepare to acquire permanent housing or just provide a hot meal to someone in need.  I think it is important to help each other from time to time.

The Cleveland Food Bank

The Homeless Families Foundation

I still have a few pieces left, email me if you are interested in purchasing of the pieces listed below.  Thanks!!

Road Trip

Thanks to everyone who had an opportunity to come out and visit with me at The Trunk Show held at Indigenous.  This gallery is wonderful, and the staff is great.  They made me feel right at home during my recent visit to the gallery.  They had a wide variety of handcrafted goodies.  I was so excited to be invited down a guest artist.  If you are in the area make sure to check them out.  I had a wonder time meeting everyone and demonstrating how to create a holiday art piece.  Many thanks again to all the ladies and Diane Christian Budd / Owner for inviting me.  I look forward to visiting again soon.  Here are a few photos  from my visit.

Trunk Show

Happy Fall,

Wow, where did the summer go.  I can't believe it time to pack up the shorts and sandals.  This summer went by so fast.  But, I have been busy creating art pieces in between taking the kids to the pool and the outdoor cookouts.  I have a few shows lined up this fall, so If you are in the area, stop by and say hello.  The first show of the year I will be a featured artist at Indigenous, a great gallery located in Cincinnati, Ohio.  The event will be October 12th, 2013 from 10:00am - 4:00pm.  Click on the link below for more details.  As the fall approaches I will post information about future shows.

Spring in the air

Hello All,

I know time flys when you are having fun.  I have been having a ball working on finishing up my degree in Fine Arts / Psychology.  So posting on my blog sort of fell to the way side.  But, I knew I had to reconnect and not lost touch with everyone.

Many of my ideas are still brewing in my head and I plan picking my brain soon and creating some of my creations.  I have a few shows lined up this year and will post information on those as they get closer to the show dates.

I also wanted to share with you all that I will have my own studio soon.  I am so excited!! My dear hubby has been busy doing the DIY improvement on it for me.  I have a few pictures of the work in progress for you to check out.  If you have any decorating ideas to help me with my space let me know.




Have a great day!!!
Smiles,
Elaine
