I am displaying my handcrafted journals/books and mixed media at Artomatic Frederick. (www.artomaticfrederick.org) Artomatic opened its doors September 4th and runs through October 5th. My artwork is on display in building 115 E Chruch St, Frederick, MD room 16. There are 350 artists displaying artwork, it is well worth the trip to Frederick to view. It may even take more than 1 trip to soak it all up. There were over 3500 guests this past Friday and Saturday alone! I have already had some sales, journals and mixed media. So I can say I am a happy camper. It is always a warm feeling when someone makes a purchase. It took me a long time to let go of some of my artwork - I call them my "favorites". Seems the favorites sell right away. I can say I am in a happy place right now, being retired and have the ability to work on my art every day or not at all. It is a very nice luxury.
I have met and become friends with some new artists - it is always nice to make new connections in the world of art.
I am quite busy with several custom orders, 2 journals, 5 "girls" (http://www.pinterest.com/artsybab/my-girls/) and 2 "Friends". I also have students signed up for my "Paper Design" class and "Polymer Clay - Coptic binding" class. All classes are taught at the Artway in New Market, MD.

Now back to my art.
Until next time....
