Creative soul retreat 2010

Yes I’m back after a hectic 4 days of fun and laughter and big news!
I had the most amazing classes with Susan Lenart Kazmer I have waited a long time to have the pleasure of doing a class with her and it was everything I thought it would be and more.
The retreat was amazing; catching up with old friends and making new ones.
Above is the talented Laurie Mika and Ro .
I have some huge news for you all, Susan and her business partner Linda Larsen have announced that I am the sole Authorised distributor of Ice Resin in Australia, and that includes her products as well bezels etc.
I’m thrilled and honoured, and I feel so proud. Her products will be a pleasure to sell here in Australia. I have been using the Ice Resin for many months now and just love this product.
Stay tuned for a new website just on the ice resin. Currently, I’m finishing pieces that I made in Susan's class.
I’m off to take another nana nap
Take care
PS A huge thank you to Bevlea, Eva and Lucy for another awesome retreat. I'm so proud of you all!

Time fly's

Time fly’s when you’re having fun, I have had a very busy time of late, and you wonder where the time goes.
I really looking forward to Creative Soul retreat more than you know. Not only catching up with friends but I’m teaching there as well, as well as doing a class with The Queen of cold connections Susan Lenart Kazmer I have so wanted to do a class with her for Years so is my friend Ro we will be in heaven LOL Sad isn’t it.
I’m also gearing up for a stall on the first night of the retreat. I will have goodies, supplies and some of my jewerly.

I have been inspired by alot of people in their art world, one of my fav's is Catherine Witherall an amazing PMC artist, Catherine gave me her blessing to try and make one of her PMC birdhouses in Metal and this is the end result, Im so thrilled with how it turned out. It was made from a sheet of brass etched then rolled and soldered sounds easy but it wasnt.Thanks Catherine for your help and inspiration

Below are some shots of Keith Lo Bue and I at the recent class I took in Halls Gap an amazing teacher who shares his knowledge so freely,he is alot of fun as well.
