Friday Fun: Princess Lasertron’s headband

felt flower headband

In the fall of 2009 I received a copy of Where Women Create, a wonderfully inspiring magazine. Princess Lasertron, also known as Megan Hunt, was featured in that issue and I have been a fan ever since. Megan creates beautiful bridal bouquets and dresses and documents her creations on a lovely magazine-style blog. In addition […]

“You are in the right place at the right time.” ~ Jo Packham During breaks from the panel discussions and workshops we were treated to a handmade market in the hotel.

The biggest mall I have ever seen

This weekend I attended the second Creative Connection Event in St. Paul. It brought flashbacks of last year and reminded me of all the changes that have occurred since then. From the terrifying roller coaster flight last year to now things have changed so much. I do feel a lot more serene now. Even if I […]

lesson of the week

“Once you realize that life can change in an instant, you can relax into a steady state of joyful expectation.” ~Kathy Freston The past week has been spent administrating rather than creating. Tomorrow I will be back in the studio with more canvases, because the Dragonfly sold! Yippie. I have opened a business account and sent […]

9/28 re-post “Live imperfectly with great delight”

This is the quote on my T-shirt that was donated by Curly Girl Designs to the Creative Connection Event — in a box “containing peace and love” :-). For a perfectionist like me, it is a great reminder that not everything has to be perfect. Like this blog. People have been encouraging me to start a blog […]
