1. The astounding and inspiring Liz Kalloch has taken it upon herself to organize the First Annual Squam Art Show, which will make its debut at Artstream Studios just before the September 2009 Squam Art Workshops. Here's the scoop: all of you lovelies who taught or attended the 2008 Squam Art Workshops are invited to participate, and even if you aren't planning on attending this September's event (we'll miss you!) your work is wanted and needed. Head over to Liz's website, which has all the news that's fit to print on what is sure to be an extraordinary exhibit. And if you're having any doubts at all about submitting, try this: Write down your doubts, fears, worries, etc. on a piece of paper, then promptly burn, rip up or somehow disintegrate that piece of paper. Shred it in a blender, stomp on it, do whatever you have to do!!
2. Dancing Mermaid is offering an e-course on how to create your own creative mermaid gathering. How marvelous is that?
3. Speaking of Squam Art Workshops (SAW), head over to Decor8 for a great interview with SAW's fearless leader, Elizabeth MacCrellish. Need more inspiration? Here's another lovely interview over at Droplets of Devotion with the divine Jen Gray.
