Did I ever mention that I am 100% Italian? Yep that's me! My grandparents were born in Italy so I guess that makes me 2nd generation American. Lately my youngest daughter and I have been craving pasta with tomato sauce. Home made sauce of course. It's just been too darn hot to make it. We are shooting for Sunday - thinking the weather will finally break. Then we shall feast on stuffed peppers, meatballs and pasta! Maybe I'll let you know what time dinner is!

Oh yeah....about those red shoes....

I SOLD THEM! I knew I could. They went to a good home all the way in California!


That's right. After three years in the same spot I am moving my studio to a new location. I am excited about the move. The space has wonderful lighting and is closer to the heart of downtown and just "feels right". I HATE moving! There I said it. I know hate is a strong word but I really do intensely dislike moving! Why move you ask? I need space to teach private art classes in. I started teaching privately in 1982. I stopped in 2000 because I needed a break, and my mom was requiring more care. I am ready to go back to it. I forgot how much energy working with kids generates. I have my curriculum written and planned out, my supplies on order and just waiting now to get to the end of the month so I can move. I will post some of the kids projects through the year here and at Now if we could just fast forward to August 31st......
