IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY... think about Christmas! And gifts and decorations and ornaments...

My friend Mimi expressed an interest in the WEE TREE ORNAMENT and I promised to share with her (and all of you), the rest of my Christmas ornament offerings.

 I have made the BAUBLE ORNAMENT in red and green as well (the multi-colored thread pictured is not always available to me); BETHLEHEM BAUBLE I like to keep blue (in honor of the little town of Christ's birth AND the actual color-name of the thread!); STAR OF WONDER will always be in shades of purple (please humor me); and WHERE'S SANTA, the wonderful chapeau of Father Christmas himself, must always be RED! 

I'm due for a new ornament design...I'll keep you posted! Until then, thanks for "listening"...

An Artful Affair 2011 - Save the date!

The Greater Westmoreland Creative Collective is pleased to announce its second annual trunk show, "An Artful Affair 2011", on Saturday, October 1st, from 10 to 4 p.m., in Greensburg, PA.

"An Artful Affair" is intended to celebrate local artistry and to honor Pennsylvania's long heritage of fine handcrafted goods. In a world filled with "fast, cheap and disposable", the GWCC and "An Artful Affair" are dedicated to providing only quality, high value, and unique creativity to those who can truly appreciate them.

Our artists also have a strong commitment to the three R's (Reuse, Repurpose, or Recycle) and you will find that many of their works reflect this important environmental sensibility.

Please join us for a day of tantalizing tea, delightful delectables, and amazing art as we showcase local artists, craftsmen, designers, jewelers, and organic products.

Come join us for a delightful afternoon celebrating creativity!

Artist members who will be spotlighted:

Merriann Grant - fine jewelry
Nan Loncharich - fabric arts
Cia Williford - miniatures and mixed media arts
Katie Resch - painted woodwork
Helen Stetina - needlecrafts
Lisa Hertzog - country decorating

Additional guests will be announced prior to the event.
