Life is what you make it

Altered Cigar Box Class Jan 14 Palmetto Art Center

Come and enjoy a workshop where we will take an ordinary wooden cigar box and transform it into an extraordinary piece of artwork, suitable for display in your home.  We will use papers, ephemera, inks and other adornments on and in the cigar boxes.  11- 2 and bring a lunch. $25 dollars for the class.  Bring a friend new to class and you will get $5 off the class fee. 
I will have all sorts of inks, papers (hand made papers, collaging papers, embossed papers) and bits and babbles available to you for  adorning your box.  I tried not to bring the kitchen sink but that is just too hard when doing a mixed media/ collage class.  So be ready for lots of pretties for your boxes.  You do not have to recreate the samples unless  you want to.  If you have a heat tool, ruler and or scissors please bring them to expedite the processes. 

Give me a call (  941-704-3074 If I cant answer the phone, just leave me a message and I will call you back at my earliest convienience.) or email me at  to sign up and I will give you my address to mail a check to reserve your place.   I have already received checks from some of you. seats are filling up.

50% off at my booth at Emilines

YEP, sadly, I have to discontinue my booth at Emilines.  I have loved all that I have learned and I love the people that make up Emilines.  I will be a regular visitor and some day may start it back up. Right now I am trying to secure a full time job and have to make room on my "plate of life".

SO go shop and get 50% off in my booth.  Jan is my last month.  It has been fun.

I still have upcoming classes at the Palmetto Art Center (PAC) and go to their calendar page.  Hope to see you there.  This month, altered cigar boxes, Jan 14th and Jan 28 is a repeat of the Polymer clay bracelet.  Go check it out
