Mini Canvas Showcase!

SEND ME your ART: 

I need many wonderful mini canvases to decorate a gallery wall in my art studio.  Would you like to help decorate?
I am looking for sizes 2″ x 2″,   1″ x 2″, & 3″ x 3″. You can purchase them at most art stores, including OPUS Art Supplies in Canada.buzz_4packmini3x3

All artwork will be featured on my BLOG with a link back to your website or facebook fan page!

My addy: 15450 – 18th Ave, Surrey, BC, V4A 1X2, Canada.


Requested Deadline:  Feb 21st, 2014.  I am dying to finish the studio and have an open house. It will be so great to have a world wide art display on one wall showcasing everyone’s artwork along with their name!

Are you making dolls & art journaling in 2014?

It has been an interesting beginning of 2014 so far. SANY1101

SANY1108Of course we had the wonderful celebration last week, then the start of my 2014 planner journal, followed by being thrilled to see that Somerset mentioned our ART RETREAT in their latest issue of Somerset Studio, … then our hot water tank went on Friday and it cannot be replaced until next Wednesday (UGH), to yesterday where I visited Clarissa’s art studio with my Mom (pics below).

Here are a few quick pictures of the beginnings of my 2014 planner journal:

And now a visit to Clarissa’s art studio in Ferndale Washington:

Stepping Stones

Welcome down the path into my new ART STUDIO.

It is still a work in progress, but it is a lovely project to have to work on…lol.

This studio space is smaller than the last, but will be more prominent and welcoming for guests at my next OPEN HOUSE (date T.B.A.).

As mentioned in my video shown above, My lovely Grandma Fran turned a young 90 today! We had a wonderful celebration for her last Saturday with over 100 guests!

HaPpY BiRtHdAy Grandma!   xoxoxox
