Long time no "see" my friends!

It looks like it's been well over a year since I posted last.  In that time, I held my first solo exhibition, graduated college, interned at the Museum of Art, continue to work as a contract art educator for the museum, continue to teach local workshops and I'm looking to start graduate school in the fall.  My personal life has been rocked this past year too, losing a close friend who also happened to be a family member this past spring.  The kiddos are doing great (thankfully!!), growing up way too fast.  Juggling it all isn't easy and I've been wanting to post for quite a while.  My goal to to post regularly again.  It's something I've been missing.

Another reason I wanted to post today is to tell you that I've been updating my Etsy site.  Graduate school and the kids' extracurricular activities are expensive!  It's motivated me to post my handmade books for sale.  I hope you'll take a look at my treasures and share with your friends if you're willing to.  I've got some upcoming tutorials and projects I want to share.  Until then, enjoy some eye candy and if you're feeling up to it, buy a little something too.  ;)

Maker Faire

Saturday, October 17, 2015

I will be a part of the Mini Maker Faire on Saturday October 18 from 11-4 at the main library, downtown San Antonio.  If you are in the area, I hope you can drop by and say hello!

You know they say that the only constant in life is change.  I have some (good) changes to share with you today.  I feel lucky to have been a part of the Roadhouse Arts crew for the past year.  The ladies behind the scenes are all amazing and talented, I have loved being an instructor in their space.  At this time, they have decided to make separate studios in the same area.  You can read all about the news here.

Starting in January I will be a resident instructor at The Makery (where Roadhouse is currently located).  Francesca has been working hard at getting the new website and workshop listings ready.  I hope you will hop over and check it out.  I will now be reunited in teaching with my sister, Laura Dehart.  This hasn't happened since our days at Stamp Antonio.  I know many of you will remember her and know how excited I am about it.  All of the instructors at The Makery are top-notch.  I hope you will come and spend the day taking some workshops with us.  Francesca's vision includes creating a community of like minded artsy souls and we want you to be a part of it.  Bulverde is just a short trip up the road from me here in San Antonio.  It actually takes me less time to get there than to the other side of San Antonio.  Make the drive, you'll be glad you did.

Here are some samples of the new workshops I have coming up at the Makery next year...

The Makery is already taking registrations for these workshops.  You may sign up anytime online. 

Thanks for checking in with me and letting me share my news.  I appreciate each and every one of you.
