Garden Delights Gala – new arts & crafts!

My yearly gala, the Garden Delights Holiday Gift Sale & Art Show, is the first 2 weekends of December this year! The Show is at my art studio on December 1-2 and 8-9, from 11 am to 5 pm – or by appointment at your convenience.

I’m proud to show my photos and mixed-media artwork & crafts, and also upcycled creations, where I bring fresh life to paper and fabric. Also new this year -hand-knits! Fashionable fingerless mitts …

… keep your hands cozy during mild winter weather …

… and fancy lace pattern washcloths …

… pair with George’s brand new soaps for a great gift …

Please stop by to relax during the holiday rush, enjoy snacks, and chat. Never any pressure to buy, but if you’ve got a list I’ve got a wide range of handmade and original-designed gifts, for yourself and for friends and family – including pets!

Jewelry, wearable art, purses, cards & prints, boxes, home decor, beeswax candles, and more! Our honeybees blessed us with a great harvest of delicious honey, which many people swear help their pollen allergies.

We’ll explore several techniques to create unique earrings, necklaces, bracelets and pins from paper, fabric and lutradur that you print on your inkjet printer. Each person will work on at least one project at the workshop, and you will go home with many ideas and new things to try on your own printer.
