Decorating Digest Craft & Home Projects Magazine

Many thanks to Cindy Gorder and the publishers of this wonderful home decor crafting magazine for their May/June issue which includes a collection of my wedding ideas.  The pomanders were so easy and the cake looks good enough to eat in this shot.  All of these projects were developed and published with the marketing support of Sharon Currier and the Dow Chemical Company's products.
Visit the publishers' website to order your own copy of this magazine and find a lot more wedding ideas on the website.

This week I have one piece of my original art in the Cumming First United Methodist Church Arts Festival which started Sunday May 8th.  This is their 4th. year of offering new and established artists an opportunity to showcase their work.  I am  honored to be included in their list of 197 artisans this year.  This is a wonderful 8 day event, with free concerts by several professional and high school musicians and orchestras each day during the noon lunch hour.  Lunch is available at their Art Cafe.  The galleries are open from Noon until 8pm each day during the week and 8am until 3pm on Sunday the 15th.  This is a large exhibit of mixed media artwork, with a wide variety of pieces and also includes a very special students' show of kindergarten through 12th. grade artists.  It is worth the short drive up 400 - exit #15 !

As a member of The Atlanta Artists Center I can submit my artwork for showing at several local facilities, so I submitted 3 pieces to be included in the May Buckhead Library Mixed Media exhibit.  I also volunteered to help with the show setup, tear down and reception.  We had 90 minutes to take down about 60 pieces and hang another 60 pieces.  What a great group of artists !  They welcomed me with open arms, showed me how it was done, and everything was magically done just in time.  The next day we were there again introducing ourselves to the visitors at the opening reception.  This is a wonderful mixed media exhibit in a modern library building that is flooded with lots of natural light.  Will be doing this again next year - in a bigger way !
