Come on down folks.............................. Have you heard?
There is going to be a little old Texas ART playing re treat.

Two gals up the road are puttin on a fun time to be had all.

OK, we don't talk like that. But here is the deal, Click on the retreat poster to the left and it should take you to the new blog (in progress) about this event.

And here is another deal, I'm going to teach a Face on a Box session.

And here is a class sample that I did last night.

You know you want to do it. It's not just for Texas folk.

She looks like a "sister on a box". Can't help it. That's what I do. And I believe that I can show you how too.

The project is on a paper mache box and includes collage of papers, and painting a face from your sketch. Yes you can cause I'm gonna show you how.

Norah'S planning to be there in full force and she's already up to some shenanigans. I will just tell you that she is really good about sending your Dear Doubtful Donna out the door.

I've said enough for now.



  1. Sharon! I can not wait to do this in class!!! Super Duper!!

  2. Heia!
    Thank you very much for your letter, napkins are gorgeous. looking forward to using them.
    You are just so clever and it is a pleasure
    to look at your blog.
    Thank you again.

    Greetings from Norway

  3. WOWZERS your class samples makes me want to jump a plane and come on down! sheeesh I really wish I could!

  4. ARRRGH! My comment got eaten!

  5. How cool is that!? I am thinking about coming down...I think it's time we met.

  6. Dang, I live too far away from Texas. I'm a Southern Maryland girl...steamed crabs and corn on the cob...
    Could you teach this Face on the Box online?? I'd pay to learn!! Love her!

  7. I found your blog about 4 days ago and already I want to come to the class-but from England it's a bit far! Perhaps you might one day run an on line class and then I could join the fun. Good luck with it all.

  8. OMG!! I sure wish I lived in TX so I could come to your class. I've been struggling with painting faces and I'm sure your class would set me straight.

  9. My thoughts exactly.... can we have an online class too Sharon. I would love to learn to do beautiful faces!!!
    Australia is just a bit too far from Texas.... drat!
    Your Face on a Box class looks fantastic!

  10. Hmm, I think NZ to Texas is a *little* too far to travel for a class - but wish I could. Take care, and thanks for visitng Faith's page and checking on my furbabies.

  11. Fabulous!!! I think you should be teaching MANY classes, I've always thought that! You have so many wonderful techniques and tricks to share with the world. Lucky, lucky people there in TX to have this opportunity with you!(and Norah)
    Love this face on a box!!!

  12. Sigh...wish I could come to your class. I just booked a trip to Houston; if I'd known about it earlier I would have postponed until Sept. This box is fabulous. Hope you'll teach it online after the class.

  13. Thank you for all of your ideas re: these napkins! What eye-openers. Add me to the list of people who wish they lived in TX. I'd jump at the chance to take your class.


  14. Hi Sharon...Congratulations,on teaching in Dallas.
    I just used the first of the napkins and love the look..take a peek on my blog.
    Wish I were able to come and meet you in person...Good luck, I know you will be a success.


  15. oooooooo, I have the perfect box and I love yours. Thank you again for the inspiration!

  16. I want to live in Texas!

  17. isn't it funny how a face is a face is a face.... but there are so many different ways to draw them or to use them...

    If you do an online class.... put me on the list please..... Canada is a bit of a jump from Texas too.... darn it.
