I'm so excited about the new art pieces that arrived in the mail while I was away! To show them off, I stretched myself a bit creatively and did something I haven't done before - I tried my hand at "vlogging" (that's video-logging, for the uninitiated).
If you're new to this blog, you might want to visit this post where I showed off my creative sanctuary and asked people to help me decorate it. There's still room for more, so if you haven't already done so, please consider sending me something.
Click on the video below and spend a little time with me in my new studio. You'll get to see the first three pieces hanging on my "inspiration from others" wall. And for a bonus, you'll see the things I splurged on while on vacation - the amazing pottery mug that called out to me from a wonderful gallery in Duluth, and the swirly silver earrings that I couldn't resist at an equally wonderful little gallery on Madeline Island. (The links aren't to the actual pieces I bought, but to the artists' pages - both worth visiting.)
(The video quality is a little poor due to poor lighting and a cheap low res camera, but hopefully you can still see enough to enjoy the tour.)
Here are the links to the lovely people who sent me art...
