Local Fundraising Auction

I am participating in a fundraiser for our local co-op preschool, and there are some great items being offered! Some of the items are local for those living in Sacramento, and others are goods that can be shipped to you. I have donated the necklace pictured above, as well as, a $25 gift certificate for my Etsy shop, or any special order item. Here is the link where you can see and bid on some great things, and help out the kids at a wonderful school! The auction runs through March 30th and they are accepting cash donations too. :) Thanks for looking!

New Items On Etsy and Upcoming Class

I have added a few new items to my Etsy shop....a Magical Man in the Moon.....
Stormy Seas in Blue and Grey~ wire wrapped labradorite earrings....
And April showers bring May Flowers~ A sweet little field mouse under a pretty flower! In addition to these new items, I have been doing some "spring cleaning" in my shop, and marked down most of last years pieces to make way for new in 2009 items. I am working on several new designs, most of which will be in sterling silver....my new passion. I will still have sculpted pieces in paper mache and clay, as well as collage and mixed media works, but I have recently taken a silversmithing class, and am enjoying working with metal these days.

I am please to have been accepted to teach at the 2009 Art & Soul Retreat in Portland OR.! You can get all of the details on my class here. If you have never been to an A&S retreat you are missing out! This is an incredible experience for all who attend...bonding with fellow artists, laughing, learning, shopping, eating, and just an all around great time. I am happy to answer any questions about my Tea Spoon Curio Pendant class that you may have, and I encourage to check out the line up of all the amazing instructors that will be teaching at this event. I hope to see you there! :)
