Well, very exciting news! I am retiring after 27 years of teaching and moving to the Marshall Islands!!!!! I went to an overseas teaching conference in January and interviewed with several schools and after weighing all the options signed a contract to teach on Kwajalein. I leave in August and it cannot come soon enough. I look forward to working in my art journals and figuring out who I really am and what I want to do with the rest of my life. What an opportunity. One that not many people get in their lives but one I am going to take full advantage of for sure. I will keep you posted.

I submitted a project to Somerset Studios last summer in the hopes that it might be published. I know sometimes they hold onto art work for a while but after seven months I started to wonder. After a few emails and phone calls come to find out they were trying to track ME down! My information got seperated from the project and they were ready to publishe my idea but had no way to get in touch with me. I stopped last night after work and picked up a couple of copies. Here is what I sent to them. Enjoy!

Quilting Arts had a submission call for mini prayer flags and this is what I submitted. I have made the bigger ones to hang out on the fence but these are really tiny. Having just finished the Frozen Charlotte hearts I used the same technique to create five prayer flags.

A view of my messy work table full of projects I hope to work on and maybe finish a few today.
|Junk journal, toe shoes, art journal and ironing!|
