I'm so honored!



Hello lovely people,

I'm back to let you all know about something special.  I'm very honored to announce that I will be teaching on opening day of Art Unraveled 2015, right here in Arizona on August 4th, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

My class, "Whimsical Altered Canvas Doll" is a class I created just for this event.  Should you choose my class when the SITE is open, you shall be making one of three different dolls shown above.  There's the Steampunk style, Mermaid, and two-sided Native Indian.  You will not have to create them as I have as you have total creative freedom to create anything you wish.  For example; if you order the Mermaid kit you are free to turn it into a fish or whale, whatever catches your fancy.  You will learn how to use PaperClay if you are new to it, and many different ways of adding color and texture to canvas.  It's going to be tons of fun and I promise to make you laugh and giggle along the way.

The Art Unraveled site should be opening soon, so keep checking back.  I also encourage you to take some other classes as the artists are all amazing.

I hope to see you in my class and at all the events included in this wondrous event, especially the final day of the "BIG" sale.

Hugs,
Meri

Holiday Greetings


Happy Holidays
Everyone

Hello ya'll,

I hope there is still some time to use these graphics.  Christmas draws close, as does the beginning of a new year.  I pray this is the best new year for all, and I hope it opens a whole new world for me.  I will hopefully be vending at Comi-Con in May, and I hope to hear soon about a teaching position for August.  There will also be lots of physical roadblocks to overcome with my hands and arms, with surgery being some of the roadblocks.  However, with surgery comes hope that limitations are lifted, or as with my knees, just more crap happening......we will see.

I'm very excited for my grandson's first Christmas, although he won't be close to an age to enjoy all the wrappings, etc.  He's the hope in my heart for a brighter future.

I pray you all have the warmest, best Christmas and that blessings surround you all.

Have a great one!

Love and hugs,
Meri

Happy Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!

Hello all,

Another year is coming to an end soon, is it just me or are they screaming by?  My life has been enriched beyond belief with the birth of my first grandchild, Maxwell.  I had the best "playday" with him last week as I got to read him a story, watch some Micky Mouse on TV, feed him and watch him nap.  He's precious beyond belief and I'm just soaking the experience in like a sponge.

I have a lot of creative challenges coming up soon, as well as physical ones, but I'm looking forward to them.  I shall be serving around 24 for Thanksgiving dinner, and it will be a little sad as it's possibly the last Thanksgiving that I can host the whole family as we will be trying to sell our home in the coming months.  Yes, I'll be ridding myself of my amazing studio and trying to downsize, but I will never give up on creating.

There will always be challenges of some sort in my life, whether personal or physical, and sadness that friendships have to end for childish reasons, yet knowing I will make other friends that might last the rest of my life which is the promise I strive for.

I wish all my friends, whether by blog, by FaceBook, by Instagram, or in person, the happiest of Thanksgivings and I pray you are all in good health and surrounded by loved ones for this holiday season.

God Bless,
Meri
