On My Way to CHA

View a YouTube, follow this easy process to weave a beautiful Zentangle® card.

Being creative and developing new patterns and projects is my passion… nearly anything is inspiring. CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) comes once a year. This is where art and craft shops find out all about new products and techniques.

At the January 2015 convention in California, I love meeting up with long-time friends, taking classes, seeing everything new, and demonstrating new ideas. This year I will do demos and make&take projects on four of my favorite things… Zentangle® tags and accordions, Gelli Arts® printing, handmade Visual Journal books, and Reactive metal paints.

If you come to CHA, please come visit me at the Design Originals – Fox Chapel Publishing booth #1421. My demos are on Sunday 12:00-1:30 and on Monday 9:00-12:00. The dates for CHA this year are January 10th thru the 13th.

Art Journals

In 2014, I authored a few NEW books. I love designing books and am fascinated by new techniques. Come and see these books… as always, I like to pack my books with tons of information and inspiration. I’ll have them with me in California – or you can check them out on Amazon.com.
