Upcoming Book Signings and Such

From the book Collage Couture

Well, we will try this again since blogger has dropped my last 2 posts! I will make this one short and sweet. The last 2 months have been sort of a resting perriod for me as I pursue some other things. Last week , I had a super creative streak and started doing some projects with fabric. If all goes well, I will post pictures this week.
I received an email on Saturday that someone actually got my book Collage Couture, in the mail from Amazon. I have not yet received mine so I was pleasantly surprised. I am in book planning event mode right now so I thought I would post where I'll be in the coming weeks.
I will start off doing a lovely vintagy show in Rainbow, CA. Yes, Rainbow in North San Diego County, and the area is as pretty as the name! This was formerly Chateau de Fleurs that took place at Christie Repasy's home in Fallbrook. I will be there June 3 & 4 and will have a few books to sell and will have some of my original art from the book for sale.

On Sunday, June 5, I will be at Stamp Your Heart Out in Claremont from 2 - 4. This sweet little store is where it all began for me. The owner, Joan has been cheering me on since I first was asked to participate in an art walk there a little over 2 yrs ago. Yep, I walked in that store that night with nothing but my art. No easels, no prices, nothing...not a clue how to set up for this! But Joan helped me set up, I had a successful evening and have been asked back many times since.

I am setting up a signing and 2 classes at a Ben Franklin store in Grass Valley, CA on June 25. Am very excited about this. This a wonderful area in Northern CA sitting at the edge of the gold country. Sylvia, who I met in Davis while doing a show and class has graciously offered me her guest room that weekend. How fun to spend the weekend with new friends!

I will post as more events come my way. Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered the book. I hope you enjoy it!
