Be sure to pop back in next week, I am going to put up a post showing a recent working field trip to Round Top, Texas. For those who are not familiar with it, they have a most fabulous antiques fair there twice a year.... it is truly a wonderland of international and local treasures... got to hang out with my friend's Jo, Dana,Rachel Ashwell, and Robin Brown,come back and visit to get all the details!
There was a single specific moment in time when it struck me, " I just might be an artist." And I must admit it was quite a relief. This explains everything, it all makes perfect sense now. Those frantic urges to quickly search out paper and pen, a lack of attention for the ordinary and mundane but endless patience and diligence for anything frivolous or impractical. Then there are those impulses bordering on near obsession to collect antique oddments. I've been a gatherer all my life which is where the idea for my new RELICS & ARTIFACTS craft blank collection began. I've partnered with PRIMA MARKETING INC. to release this uniquely beautiful line. Timeless and classic curated arrangements of matte resin castings ready to be re-imagined in any number of ways, altered art, jewelry, mixed media, just decorate and embellish with your favorite medium. I am also a Contributing Editor to WHERE WOMEN CREATE, WHERE WOMEN COOK and WWCBUSINESS magazines. I've authored several best selling craft books including FANCIFUL PAPER PROJECTS and FANCIFUL PAPER FLOWERS. I have created several popular rubber stamp lines exclusive to STAMPINGTON & COMPANY.
