I AM The Luckiest!!!

Today is the day I am going to Donna Downey Studios
to take TWO classes with

Short story.....Last year while waiting for what was ENDLESS hours in the hospital waiting room for BEST HUBBY IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD to come out of surgery...I was doing mindless surfing on my tablet....when I stumbled upon Stephanie Ackerman's Homegrown Hospitality..{truely a GOD thing}
A peace came over me....I sent her a message....she texted me back....and I have been following her journeys ever since....Sooooo when I saw she was coming to DDStudios....just an hour and a half away....BEST HUBBY paid for my classes!!
These are a few pre-class mini art frames I made with Stephanie in mind...
I cannot wait to see what she inspires me to do today!!

MY ART>>>A Brand NEW Direction>>>>

Yesterday....I participated in
Vintage Market at the Park
in Greer, SC
For several months I have been leaning toward creating more mixed media art canvases....and absolutely loving the creative journey.
The show was quite successful...I had huge interest in my art...sold several pieces..was approached by 2 stores...and had inquiries about "commissioned work"
>>>>I am feeling affirmed in my decision...and my art>>>>
I did set my etsy shop in "vacation mode" for a bit...while I get my new web-site up & going...was able to register  StudioBeeCreations with, that was the first step


I am sooooooooooooo excited for what's next with
{I will keep you posted!!}
