Spring Green

I think spring may be in the air.  A lot of my creations lately have been in shades of spring green. Such a pretty and fresh color. I have a class I am teaching tomorrow for this tote bag.  I fell in love with this fabric. I am really enjoying teaching classes.  I have a couple new venues I am working up ideas for.  I took a temporary job in an accounting and tax office doing admin work for a few weeks. Its a great place and I am enjoying that, but after working my early morning shift at Target I am sooooo tired. Add teaching classes, I have to wonder if I am sane!  But there is a method to my madness. Its all in the grand plan. Trying to tie up some loose ends and getting ready for my own teaching studio.  By the way,,,,, I am looking for studio space in something like an art co op in the Tempe/Phoenix area.  I have found some amazing spots all across the country, but nothing at all in this area.  If any of you know of anything, I would love to hear about it.

I found this awesome tutorial at Pinterest for making paper shoes.  This was so fun. Its my friends Birthday tomorrow and thought this would be cute for a gift card holder.  http://www.artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/

I have been working on some new Teddy Bear Designs too.  Its been quite a few years since I made bears, but it is a huge passion.  I am looking forward to work on my bears and some art dolls as well.  Well, I sure hope you all are having a great week.  Spring seems to be arriving a little early this year!

Hey Girlfriend,

Your color choices are just perfect, and that is a very fresh green. It sounds like you've got a plan and I'm wishing you all the best pretty lady.

Hugs,

Hi Gail,
I see you are busy creating some very pretty things. I never knew you made bears and the mermaid bear is adorable.
Do you still have your shop?
Take care and good luck with the hunt, I have no doubt you will succeed,
