Marking time…

For the first time, a calendar made of mandalas shows up….

Made from twelve digital mandalas, the calendar measures 8.5 inches square. I love that I found to print the calendars, using soy-based inks and 100% post consumer waste recycled paper (called Reincarnation).

Here is the back page that shows you the twelve mandalas:

Le très Petit Noël returns in December

Some people may remember the Le Petit Noël holiday show
I used to organize in Three Rivers…the last one was 20 years ago!


On the first weekend in December, I will be hosting a smaller version of this fun event at my art studio. Enjoy sipping mulled cider and shopping for special artisan-made treasures. Watch for more photos coming to showcase the beautiful work….

(Find us on the 1st Saturday Three Rivers map for December 5.)

Many years ago (in another lifetime) I organized a special annual holiday event, called Le Petit Noël, which was held on Thanksgiving Weekend. It was a special time to celebrate wonderful local art and encourage local shopping for Christmas. Now, 20 years later, I am hosting a mini-version of this event at my art studio. Toni Best, who was an artist in the original show, will be showing her amazing gourd art. My dear friend, Marion Hultgren from Atlanta, is bringing exquisite jewelry and some creative ornaments. My sister, Peggy Hunt, will have birdhouses made for real birds. Stephanie Dethlefs is bringing mulling spices (for sampling and buying) and other delicious eatables. I will have some vintage gift tags from the original Le Petit Noël (yes, I saved them) and new mandala cards and my digital collages.

Directions: going east on Highway 198 in Three Rivers, turn right at Skyline Drive (at the Veterans’ Memorial Building). Follow Skyine Drive to end (9/10 of a mile from the highway.) Look for arrow signs to the last driveway on the left just before the end of the road. Path starts at the green arbor and goes straight down to the front door of studio.
