Getting to know you...

getting to know all about you...

San Miguel de Allende is a charming city in Mexico.  It's filled with winding, steep cobblestone streets.  The people are friendly.  Tons of Canadians and Americans have second homes here.  It's amazing the sites that can be found behind old doors.

We are staying at The Villa Mirosal, a beautiful small hotel (12 rooms).  Sunrise view from our hotel room.

The world famous La Parroquia of San Miguel de Allende located in the Jardin.

Thinking inside the box...

I made a number of heArt journals for my upcoming "From the Heart" exhibit with Pamela Larkin Caruso.  I needed something to hold the journals for display purposes.  I taped together some cardboard; said a few magic words and voila!

The journals fit inside perfectly.  I love it.

She has a Real Head for Figures...

Making plaster pots and vessels makes me very happy.  I never know what will emerge...

"She has a Real Head for Figures" - I'm no math whiz that's for sure!

"Brush Cut" holds my brushes, of course!

Some Strings Attached....

Pinocchio, Pinocchio, where are thou Pinocchio?  My dear puppet hangs on my studio wall above my desk.  He is my favorite thing I brought home from Prague.

I love surprises - don't you?

The other day I came across a website called Darn Good Yarn.  It has wonderful yarns made of silk saris and other fibers.  I had to order something, of course!  It arrived today.

Gift wrapped no less.  The tag says "Be good, but more importantly do good.  Kensie Kate packed with love by Amanda."

The next surprise will be what I do with these yummy fibers - loads of possibilities.

small bundles

I had notecards printed up from my original drawings.  I'm tying them into small bundles to offer for sale.

My texture "Mashed Potatoes" added over original photos.
