My raincoat story is about failure and success when learning a new skill. I want to show you that every project does not always work out as planned. Sadly, the banner project did not come out. Many people see all of the success in art while ignoring the failures that are quietly brushed under the […]
It’s no secret I love buying new fabric as much as I love making things. However, I’m about to present you with a project that is free from buying new fabric, is easy and is eco-friendly.
It all started in 2016 when Ms. Glenda Miles owner of Creative Communion in Pendleton Art Center asked if […]

A little back story before we begin. As a child my mother didn’t believe in buying anything new. I was 16 with 2 baby sisters and all of the extra money my family had went […]
Do you love recycling, up cycling, remaking or refashioning? I put a call out to my friends with studios to ask if they would host me last summer and the first one to respond was Glenda Miles, owner of Creative Communion in Middletown’s, Pendleton Art Center. Glenda suggested a class for the T-Skirt. A T-Skirt […]
