Hand-crafted Spring

I don't know what it is with me and animals in outfits, but they make me stupidly happy. If I had to venture a guess, I'd say it all started with reading the Chronicles of Narnia books seven times through as a child (not kidding). So there is little wonder that I feel a strong affinity for the work of artist and illustrator Ryan Berkley. Can you think of anything better than a meerkat in an aviator cap? Find Ryan's extremely affordable prints here or read about Berkley Illustration shenanigans on his blog Let's Share.

I've posted info on the Creating a Sustainable Moss Terrarium Class I teach at the Craft Kitchen in Santa Ana - here and here. And while it's a wee bit short notice, I wanted to let you know that we'll be holding the class again this Saturday, March 21st from 3 to 6 pm. To register visit the Craft Kitchen website and scroll down to March 21st. Come get your hands dirty and exercise (or find!) your green thumb!

Looking towards April, a heads -up on a new Craft Kitchen class called Tie-Dye Eggs where you'll learn how to transfer prints from vintage neck ties onto eggs! Join me for this workshop on Saturday, April 4th from 11 am until 2 pm. Celebrate Spring and create eggs that will impress even the Easter Bunny. Bring 2 dozen uncooked eggs (per student) to the class and we'll provide the rest - including a basket to haul your handiwork home!

This class is open to adults at $35. per person or bring along a lucky kid for just 10 more! To register visit the Craft Kitchen website and scroll down to April 4th. And for those of you that live to far away to attend, check out this kit to create your own tie-dye eggs at home.
