Swanky Moms

Just joined a cool on-line group called "Designing Swanky Moms". I'm excited to be part of the group-they seem like a really caring, supportive network of women. Lots of them have beautiful handmade products in Etsy shops and their own on-line shops. Check 'em out!

Weekend of Bliss!

What a great weekend I just had!! I went to a scrapbooking retreat in North Conway, NH, hosted by the gals at Crop,Paper,Scissors.( So much fun. I went with my sister-in-law, Monique, and we are definitely making this an annual trip. How wonderful to have nothing to do all weekend but crop. Someone else fed and cleaned up after us (for a change), no rambunctious toddlers, no husbands (no offense, Babe), so much room to work, other creative women to interact with. Truly, the most fun I've had since I don't remember when. Photos are forthcoming...

Moving on...

Good Morning! Well, I guess it's time to take down my Halloween decor (heavy sigh). The pumpkins are staying 'til after Thanksgiving though! And Halloween items have been removed from our CafePress Shop. Soon we'll be adding Holiday goods.
More thoughts on Christmas later...

Greetings everyone-Posted this year's Halloween Art just in time! (Some of it at least!). And now our thoughts turn to Christmas. Yikes! We're feeling glittery this year. And looking for an excuse to buy some Martha Stewart Glitter! Enjoy All Hallows & BE SAFE.

Autumn 2006 Review

Here's a view of our Autumn 2006 Collection. We loved it so much we're showing it again! Fall seems to be a great time for primitive, country style with a little whimsey-and we're crazy for the orange/black color combo. Next up, Autumn 2007 Collection. You'll be seeing more crows, more black & orange, more Country. Stay tuned...

Note from Michele

Greetings! With my husband's encouragement and favorable response to recent work, I've decided to throw myself wholeheartedly into my collage work. I'm so excited-I plan on creating a whole line of collage art that will incorporate my recent obsession-vintage elements. Look for more old keys,antique lace, and beautiful time-worn sheet music and letters. It'll be fun for us at the studio to create new products based on the new work. Wish us luck!
