I've decided to teach a class closer to home in Wilton, CT. Years ago I got stuck creatively and have used a collage technique that helps me shape a creative direction. Based loosely on the Artists Way by Julia Cameron it has helped me get out of my own way and to be focused in a world of distraction. Begun over 15 years ago this process of collaging has been a compass of sorts in helping navigate the path I am walking. By supporting myself in a parachute of spirituality I have learned to trust in my innate abilities and be comfortable in my skin. It has taken years but I have been fortunate to allow this wisdom of the ages to infiltrate my life and keep me grounded when the force of camparing myself to others can become so unbearable and I end up feeling less than. Please join me as I take you on a journey that will help you find that next right thing. That thing for you . That thing that will give you bliss. If you are interested in taking the class you can sign up here. Oh and I will demonstrate a simple craft for those of you who can't get enough...Tissue Flowers made from Vintage Dress Patterns. Oh and don't be late for class!

My heart is breaking! My sister's Pet, her beloved Pumpkin and her daughter Sophie's best friend was killed by a band of wild dogs roaming the city of Atlanta!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, a city, a growing metropolis, has been home to these wild dogs that terrify their neighborhoods killing their cats and now a 60 lb dog!! Enough is enough..calls to the city have gone unheeded and these emaciated mongrels have been allowed to terrorize the neighborhoods!! Now my sister lives with an extraordinary vision of not being able to save her amazingly humanlike dog from their clutches but the guilt of letting him out to go to the bathroom in his own back yard!!!!!!! It's 2008 people!!!! My sister was over the top in love as only a dog lover could know with Pumpkin
and wondered if she could ever survive without him, after all the highs and lows he has comforted her through. Never did she imagine he would die in such a horrific way..carrying his tortured body home to save the life left in him and then making the grueling decision to let him sleep. Forgive me for using my blog but my heart is so heavy and I needed to say something and my quilting companions with all our dogs could possibly make a difference. I don't know about euthanizing but if they are not or can not be rehabilitated is a child next? My niece Sophie is 60 lbs. Atlanta are you listening??? 4 dogs has turned into 9 over the course of 4 years!! Please keep my sister Meg and Sophie in your prayers, this is a tough one. For now leave a comment and if I find the right channels to voice an opinion I'll let you know....
wowowowow!!! The Eiffel Tower is unreal!!! Thanks for dropping by with all the well wishes!!! It truly is all that I fantasized about! ...on top of it all I hired a fleamarket guide named Merry Liuzzo who will take you to the hot spots of Paris and beyond...with the dollar at an all time low I didn't go crazy but I saw the most amazing artifacts that came via the flea markets..she grew up in the flea market where there are almost 2000 vendors and she knows everyone so if you are planning to go hire her for a couple of mornings to get your bearings and see the underground of Paris through her eyes! ...Anyway three generations seven incredible nights booked through Paris Perfect. We stayed in Rully and through the Laundry-room window we could see the Eiffel Tower and the magical light show every half hour when the sun went down and of course we went to the top our trip would not have been complete otherwise...The weather could not have been kinder! Beautiful summer days and we averaged 4-5 miles a day walking!!! It was all about mom who giggled endlessly at the site of the lights on the Eiffel Tower! The Tower is blue in honor of the French Presidency of the European Union! Please watch this You -tube to understand the shimmering spectacle! Just posting a few photos today of this wonderful experience! Thanks to Sophie (my niece) Katie (my daughter) Meghan (my sissy) and of course mom who kept up and at times blew us away with the passion of the city to you all I give great hugs and thanks. My husband Peter and Matthew, my son stayed back from this girlie trip and rightly so, shopping the Champs Elysee is not for them!
