May 11, 2007

Hi all,
I am back from Art & Soul Virginia! I had a wonderful time, meeting new people & learning new stuff! Keith Lobue's workshop was just what I needed! 2-days to be focused on art! He taught us so much. The picture is a sneak peak of what I made in his workshop. He & I talked about having him out here at The Artists' Nook next year! Yeah!
Leighanna Light's workshops got rave reviews at Art & Soul! She will be here next weekend, so don't miss out. Early Registration Discount Pricing ends today but will honor the lower rate thru tomorrow Sat May 12th. We need to get an accurate class count as soon as possible due to the preparation for her workshops. So sign up by Sat May 12th & save!
Art Opening tonight! The Morning, Noon & Night art challenge will be opening tonight 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm. The exhibit will be up thru May 31st. Come by and see each artists interpretation of this challenge.
Visual Anthologies created by Judy from Australia are truly an artistic treat! She creates these books for her clients to give to a loved one for remembrance of special times in their lives. Usually, Judy cannot post the finished book on her blog because they are so personal, but she got permission for this last book she was working on. Absolutely Fabulous! Check out her blog Red Velvet Creations
"Secrets of Rusty Things" by Michael deMeng was due out in May but I just talked to the publisher and it is delayed until July. I got to see the author copy this past weekend & it is truly a treat. The graphics are amazing! Michael takes myths & interprets them into art pieces. He tells why he put specific items in each piece of art. He explains the original myth & then how it relates to today. We are still taking Pre-orders for the Exclusive Autographed book with art book plate & deMeng artist trading card (which we are going to supersize to 3 1/2" x 5") for just $30! Only available through us! Just email me at to be added to the list.
New book just in:
More Metal Clay for Beaders-This books shows using Precious Metal Clay in your beading projects. Wonderful!
Cloth Paper Scissors- Will be in on Tuesday!
Tim Holtz's Stamps + a few others have arrived
That is all for now!
Take Care,
