Sorry I haven't been around lately

I have been really busy lately and haven't taken the time to post.  We finally are making progress with the Wagoner Arts Alliance, the Main Street organization (Wagoner Switch District) has leased a building in Downtown Wagoner on Main street and has agreed to let the Art Guild use the majority of the building at no cost !  We will need to do some labor to get it up and ready but it looks like there is enough space to divide the area into a gallery space in the front and office space in the middle for both organizations and then to have classroom space in the back area.

I am finished with the craft fairs for this year and will be working on new pieces over the winter, along with working on getting my studio space up and running. 

The Arts Alliance is planning to hold open studio days, gallery showings and classes in the new year.

Wish us luck on all our activities

Art Guild in progress

We have an Art Guild in Wagoner now, we are called Wagoner Arts Alliance and I have created a Facebook page for the group, I have someone (my sister the graphic artist) who is going to create a banner / logo for us.

We have several of our artists who will be participating in an upcoming Arts / Crafts event:

I am going to be teaching classes

A local business is working with the Main Street Organization to try to revitalize small town down town areas and they have found that the arts are a great way to do that.

I have been asked to teach jewelry making classes in both beadweaving and wire work.

I will post the schedule as soon as it is set, the classes are in January.

Wish me luck!

It's Finally Reveal Day for the BSBP

Wow! I was so inspired by the beads that I received from my partner Amy that I just didn't know which direction to go, so I stared at them for forever.

Finally I made a decision to just "go for it" and this is what I ended up with and I really hope that Amy approves and that my fellow Bead Soup participants like it too!


This is how it was as I started working on it, I had the concept for the main area around the fabulous focal that Amy sent, but wasn't sure how to finish it off.

So this is what I ended up doing, hope you approve

Soup's on!

I just received my soup from Amy!

This is what I received, it was all wrapped up in this pretty tissue paper with a golden ribbon, but I was so excited to get it open I didn't take the time to photograph the pretty packaging (sorry Amy)

Isn't this focal fab!

Can't hardly wait to get started creating something with this great selection of beads!
