Feeling GREAT!

Hello Friends!
I hope this post finds you all doing well and enjoying this crazy weather.
Wait, 63 degrees yesterday and possible snow any moment today?
I'm just trying to stay healthy and keep up with the layering.
Layers on, layers off.
Wax on, wax off.
Speaking of wax...oh my!
My addiction is flowing strong.
I did an encaustic demo/workshop with all the kids at Wakefield High School earlier this month. Thank you all for helping me out at Art of the Carolinas! This was my small way of thanking them for all their hard work! Thank you!
I have been working on some encaustic projects in my studio and also taught a class at Jerry's on Saturday. Forgot to take photos, but thanks ladies! That was SO much fun! We'll have to get together again soon.

Here is a close up of a challenge piece I submitted to The Seam Shoppe for their current challenge: "The Elements". My piece is entitled "Journey Within" and is on display now in Key West. I'll have overall photos at the end...

Our workshops at the store are now in full swing! Here are some photos of Diana Coidan's Pastel Class:

One of my new projects is making hand I also made some lip balm.
I found that this lotion works very well as a barrier cream for artists! Great for cracked lips, elbows, dry skin. You name it! Let me know if you want to try some. It's pretty awesome. Right now I have Jasmine lotion and plain lip balm available.

Here are some photos from Joe's weekend workshop at Jerry's:

Saturday the 11th we went to Matt & Bridget's Engagement Party. Lots of laughs, great food, great company and Warren singing! God bless us everyone...
Here's a great photo of Matt & Bridget:
Congratulations you two!

Speaking of love: Happy Valentines Day!
Here's an artsy shot of my roses I got from my Valentine, JOE!

And last, but not least, here are some photots that Cindy sent me from the Seam Shoppe. Joe and I are very proud to be a part of their new gallery and art section in the store! Thank you Cindy for giving us the opportunity! Can't wait to see it in person:
Way to go girl! See you soon.
Well, that's about all of my shenanigans for the past couple of weeks or so, that I'm admitting to anyway. Love you all and keep that creativity going! It's so very good for the soul...
