Spring! And not a moment too soon...

Spring is nearly here when fresh air is abundant, green sprouts emerge from the frozen earth and there is a sense of hopefulness. Ah life, you never go according to my plans.

It is so important to have special things to look forward to. This March, I am really looking forward to taking classes from Nellie Wortman! She has such a kind spirit along with her immense talent. Nellie's Make a Bezel, Enchanted Book, and Blessings Wall Hanging classes are coming up fast.
In mid-June, Kristen Robinson returns with some new creative imaginings with Divine Bangles, Grunged Up and Glamourous Upcycled Journals and Tale in My Heart - Plaster, Wax, Paper Clay Shadow.

I hope you have things to look forward to in your life this spring! Life is short, use your art supplies!

Keys to a Lady's Heart

SmittenDust Studio hosted the Dimondale Ladies Home Culture Club recently.   
After their meeting  (and before most everyone left for Florida!), we made a cute Valentine’s Day project with keys!

 Below are some of the pretty and unique mixed media keys the ladies made!

A girl can do a lot with velvet, feathers, flowers, hearts of vellum, wood, fabric, and shiny stuff!  Thank you for playing, ladies of Dimondale!
