Long Overdue!

Hi everyone! So my first grad school semester is finally over and we are getting close to being settled in the new place (photos coming soon). Thanks for being so patient with me and for continuing to read and comment here. Reciprocation on my part is long overdue. I took the summer off from school so that I could focus more on getting The Polka Dot Pixie restocked and ready for the upcoming seasons and so that I could refocus my blogging. and have the chance to read my favorite blogs (I have over 1000 unread posts in my Google Reader).

One thing I never had the opportunity to share was my fabulous trip to the East Coast where I participated in the lovely Lisa Kettell’s Art Opera. It was a blast and I have to say, I found the people of New York and New Jersey to be some of the warmest, kindest and funniest I have ever met. I hope to head back there in the fall. Here’s some photos from the Art Opera Vendor fair….

(My Alice collection kept the moo card swap spot company)

(Lisa’s beautiful display)

(Everyday is a Holiday- Jenny and Aaron’s work is even sweeter in person)

(Just gorgeous work by Vintage by Crystal!)

I found some awesome vintage goodies at the fair which i will be sharing in a future post.

I taught two classes at Art Opera and my students were amazingly talented and sweet. I really love being able to share the joy that sculpting brings me.

(There is the amazing Miss Lisa herself, putting her own spin on her fairy in my Sculpting Your Inner Pixie class! Check out her work in progress Pixie )

Speaking of inner pixies, I will be making the kit available soon for purchase for $30 (includes pre- sculpted pixie, wand, armature, choice of fairy wings, crepe, ribbon, glitter and instructions). Please email me if you are interested in reserving a kit. (update, June 23... they are ready! )

I have so much more to share with everyone . It’s been too long! But in effort to kept this post relatively and readably short, I will postpone a few more pics for my next post (which I promise, will not take 2 months to write). I have missed everyone and look forward to catching up with you all.

Love your pixie kit and good to see a post from you. Is the figure on your pixie kit already painted? I may be interested in one...just wanted a few more details. Thanks!

Hi! Jenny
How fun to be at the Art and Soul in New Jersey with such wonderful people!
Things have been crazy around here, helping my daughter & husband move into our rental, she's due in a week with her baby boy. Then grandma, who we have been caring for breaking her lower leg and is now in the hospital so lots of visits to see her...non stop life!!!
Hope you are settled in with your move to another home. I love your doll kit you have available...will check by and try to buy one in the next couple of weeks if you don't run out of them!

Just let me know...Thanks! And have a great day!

Hi! Jenny
I put down Art and Soul instead of Art Opera...
I know there was an Art and Soul retreat in New Jersey last year that Kecia of Lemoncholy attended.
Just glad you had some fun!

I hope my other comment came through.
