To everyone: Thank you so much for participating, and for leaving such fantastic comments. I really REALLY appreciate them all - you've ALL given me greater confidence in my work and designs. I know that when I'm feeling stuck and bummed out, I will return to these wonderful comments again and again, so THANK YOU!!!
Lisa's got another project cooked up for 2012, which I WILL be participating in (barring disaster, LOL). Here are the details.
EDIT: 2.17.11: THANK YOU to everyone who has visited my blog and left a comment! You are the BEST!!! This OWOH thing has been a blast - I've really enjoyed cruising the Net for fun new blogs to
SO WHO WON??? I just arrived home from the Hungry for the Arts show - had a great time, and I think/hope/pray they raised a few bucks for the GRUB program (An Olympia grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to nourishing a strong community by empowering people and growing good food.) - went to Random Number Generator Thingie (http://www.random.org/sequences) and got five numbers...now I have to figure out which posts those numbers correlate with, since Blogger doesn't have a comment numbering system (that I can figure out at this point). The numbers generated are 158, 26, 86, 8, and 143 - tomorrow morning, when I have more sleep and caffeine in my body, I will figure out whose comments these numbers go with, and will contact the lucky winners tomorrow.
EDIT: 2.4.11 - This OWOH thing is turning out to be so much fun that I've decided to give away a total of FIVE door prizes, instead of just one! Scroll to the bottom to see the additional prizes.
Greetings and welcome to my blog! I am Christine Hansen, and I'm a hot glass and mixed media artist. My work is centered around my torch-worked glass beads and mixed media art charms, which I combine in my mixed media art jewelry. I'm also a writer - my first book is Making Mixed Media Art Charms & Jewelry, which I co-wrote with my dear friend Peg Krzyzewski.
I live in Washington state, on the south end of Puget Sound, and I share my home with my sweet husband Jerry, our two kids Emily & Archer, and our small pack of retired racing greyhounds, Ivy, Sam, & Rufus.
Color and texture define my work, a bright and cheerful counterpoint to the dreary skies of winter in the Pacific Northwest. I delight in combining unusual elements for unexpected results, and am constantly dreaming up new ways to play with color and form.
EDIT: Here are pics of the additional four door prizes - enjoy, don't forget to post your comment, and good luck!
|One of my newest mixed media art charms.|
