In which I am still alive.. really

Yes, its been a while since I last posted. I have been searching for my camera cable to download the pix in it and have used that as an excuse not to post. I still haven't located it but I figured I would mosey on over and post a little somethin.

I am gearing up to start working in fabric for a couple of projects I am doing for ArtFiberFest. This has had me browsing fabric online even though I have BINS of fabric in my storage area and in the house. (under Greg's desk) My newest obsession is fabric by Amy Butler and Kaffe Fasset.




I have a few pieces I am bidding on at eBay (I hope I win) and I already have big plans for them! One of which is a smaller version of these yummy brooches by Alicia of Posie Gets Cozy to adorn some mini journals I am making.

The problem is I have no idea how to actually make them. I think I can fool with some fabric and maybe figure something out but if anyone has a pattern or some tips, I would love to hear them.

I have been arting pretty regularly. It is part of my homework from my therapist! yay. Some stuff isn't flowing very well but I did successfully finish my page for the vedigris book on Chubbyville. Its not the best page ever but its verdigris!



Finally, we are down to our last 12-ish issues of the premiere issue of Portals Zine. So order now if you want one. We have been brainstoriming an contacting protential artists and features for our next issue which will have a DOLL theme. Already it looks like we will have some really fabulous things but we want YOUR art so check out out submission deadlines and send us art!!

    I am very curious to know the artist name who did the cover, would you mind sharing??
    I have a feeling it is Kelly Angard. Is it her? I love her fabulous work.
    If it is Kelly is she featured inside the magazine also? That would be awesome!! Are there still some issues left to purchase?
