My first PROXXON Design Team Post!

As everyone knows by now, I've been chosen for the new PROXXON Design Team. I feel very fortunate to have been chosen, but most of all I'm having a blast playing with the tools that I've received to date. My first tools are the PROXXON Delta Sander OZI/E and the Jigsaw STS/12E, along with a Foot Switch FS. These tools are fantastic and if you would like to see how I made this little cutie for the Christmas tree head on over to the PROXXON blog and see all of the details!

Wonderful News of Upcoming Events!!!!!!

Yes! You guessed it, I'm on the Proxxon Design team for the next nine months!! I'm so excited about it and can't wait to show you some of the wonderful things that you can do with the tools that Proxxon has which are on a small scale and are just made for hobbyists, crafters and artists. You are really going to be amazed at the things that you can create. I will start posting projects made while using the Proxxon tools starting in November. I hope that you will all follow the posts for the blog hop we'll be having during the next nine months at some point. You will get the opportunity to win some tools for yourself!

Should I come back to the blogging world?

It has been soooo long since I've posted anything on my blog, that I honestly don't know if I should ever come back to blogging. I would dearly love your opinion on this. Would you like to see me keep blogging? I have to say it will be mostly on gourd art and all the things related to it. I do still dip into other things but gourd art has become so important to me. I teach classes and create my own works. I go to shows and have my work in shops. I have been selected to participate in an artist studio hop and have loved every minute of my experiences. Would you like to hear about them? Please leave me a comment and let me know.       More to follow,,,,,,,,,,,I hope.

What’s been going on with my Gourd Art


Hello everyone! I know it’s been quite some time since I’ve posted here on the blog but my life has been quite full with back surgery, (my L4 and L5 vertebrae are now fused together) with getting my studio finished and with “The Art Odyssey”. The Art Odyssey was a three day self guided tour of Artists studios. There were 27 Artists on the Odyssey of which I was one. It was so exciting! We’ll start with a picture of my studio:

IMG_1670 and a couple of pictures of the inside:

And here are some gourds that I’ve done in the past and that I’m working on now:
