New Cosmetic Bags!

I love having time in my studio to play around and make new products. I heard my audience and have updated my zipper pouches to larger and wider cosmetic bags ! I played with my remnants of decor and barkcloth fabrics to create patchwork durable shells, added fleece and cotton linings to make it more padded and protected. Then adorned with felted birdie birds and rick rack! Look for them at Artscape this year! 

School Year Hangover

I think this photo tells it all.  Last Friday, I completed my 28th. year of teaching art in Baltimore County!  Which means I am staring retirement in its face! I have 2 and a half years, ( that half year is thanks to teaching four days a week for one of those 28 years). It's amazing how fast life can go as well as how slow it can also be. We said good-bye to Paul Pavik,  who retired at the end of his 33 year of teaching. We welcomed David Woodward this year as our new ceramics teacher.  We completed a crazy year of snow delays, riot aftermath and a very energetic ninth grade class that could use some time sitting on the reflection chair!   Oh well, time to regroup, work on my business and have fun in my sweatshop, travel and enjoy my summer. Which is down to two months now!!! Happy Summer!!
