NEw ThReaD!



Simple things make me so happy! Today, while I was out and about I remembered to stop by Joanne's to take advantage of their sale on thread.....50% off!! I tried to keep myself in check and only buy some new thread and not all of the thread!! Here are the new colors I bought to add to my thread basket and palette. I think I did pretty good. Just wait until you see what I have in mind for these!! Cheers, Lisa

The Organization of Studio B





This is always a work in progress.......
Jenny Doh recently gifted me with the book Where Women Create, thus inspiring me to give my studio space a make-over. This book gave me so many ideas for seeking beauty and function. Thank you Jenny!

Mixed Media Mosaics


This book is almost as amazing as the artist herself! What a treat to feast your eyes on beautiful works of magic, delight your mind with art & life stories and of course learn all kinds of cool techniques!!
