Spring has Sprung

 a colorful French bucket

Oh My Goodness! (or as the young whipper-snappers say...) OMG! The Arkansas Flower and Garden Show was a smashing success. I sold lots of fun mosaics, Meno Mamas, and Hypertufa. Even better, I passed out over 500 current class schedules. It always feels good, when folks come by my booth with the soul intention of getting class info. Of course, I think EVERYONE that is a gardener should learn Hypertufa. It's such an economical and semi-easy way to dress up your garden.

And I sold a bunch of my ebooks.... "Hypertufa, Basics & Beyond." With over 30 projects detailed in this downloadable little treasure trove of garden art how-tos, the folks at my Saturday presentation on the Garden Stage scarfed the info up. You can find my book at

My heart swelled many times as folks told me how much they missed my segments on Channel 7. Perhaps the producers will bring me back, someday! 4 am is way too early for this ole' queen, but I did love sharing fun projects from recycled materials and I'd be willin' to do it, again, at least every now and then. (hint! hint!  Daybreak)

My class info for the 2011 season is on my website. If you're interested in playin' in the mud (hypertufa, that is) click on over and check it out. Maybe there is a class that you can work into your busy schedule. Students love it and I love sharing!

"Between a Rock and a Hard Heart"

And the Arkansas Arts Center Museum School Spring Classes are now up on their website. I am teaching an in-depth Mosaic class on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 9:30, starting March 30th. Perfect for beginners and when I get through with ya (6 week course) you'll be able to do even the most complicated pieces and have several works of art of your own.

Had several folks ask me about doing a presentation for their clubs or associations. I DO love to present "The Art of Recycling." My first for this year will be the Nevada County Master Gardeners Seminar on April 2. If you'd like me to speak to your group, drop me a line!

I've had to update my Etsy store because quite a few of the listed items sold at the garden show, but if you're in the buying mode you can check out what's available at .  I'm working on some new art, so check back often.

And thanks to all the visitors to my website since the garden show. The numbers are skyrocketing.

This week I am mosaicing a long-over-due wedding present for my precious neighbors, the Crows. What am I making? Why two crows with the moon as their backdrop to hang in their backyard garden. The moon is old dishes and the crows will be mosaiced with tiny black/brown river rock. I will post pics later this week. 

Till next post, enjoy this spring weather..........and take a class! Promise! It'll be fun and your garden will love you for it!!
