Creative Connection

I spent the past 3 days at a conference of sorts.  It was really like camp for artists and makers.  The Creative Connection is a new gathering, only two years old, where successful, interesting and talented women from all over the world gather to share their experiences, give advise and support one another.  It is incredibly helpful to know that you are not the only one out there and that you are not the first woman to try something and stumble along the way.
I am re-energized and believe that I have some new tools which will help me to spread the word about my blog, art and life.  My newest project is very exciting.  I am translating some of my small paintings into cross stitch patterns.  I have researched extensively and found that most of the offerings in the market for stitchers have a very folky feel to them.  I am putting a contemporary spin on them and reaching out to the younger generations who are looking for a way to relax, decompress, and "single task" for a while. The image I have attached is an example of what it might look like to stitch one of my paintings. 
More to come- I will be posting information once the patterns and kits are ready to sell!
