“Yeah, yeah, my heart’s in a whirl”
– Calendar Girl by Neil Sedaka
I’ve been given the OK from the powers that be to announce some exciting news! I am of the 12 talented artists chosen for the 2009 (yes, can you believe they are already planning for 2009?)Collage for Your Creative Spirit wall calendar! While the 2009 version is not complete yet, the amazing 2008 one is.. go check it out – It has the work of Claudine Hellmuth, The Altered Diva, and 10 other amazing artists!
They will be using a spread from the ‘A Work in Progress’ Skinny Book I created for Issue 13 of Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. You can see photos of my book here, but I have yet to finish taking & uploading all the pictures of it — There are 20 some pieces of incredibly-difficult-to-photograph original art in it.
A special thanks to Lunnea Weatherstone for asking me to contribute to this. I am both flattered and honored.. and a bit more then excited to be a part of this. How am I supposed to wait so long to see the results? Ikes! Patience is NOT my greatest virtue!
Thanks for sharing in my excitement y’all!
Chrysti .. who must now slink back to finish some other top-secret projects I can’t wait to divulge…
