After more than a dozen years blogging on another platform, I am moving that content here and starting fresh with a new look and a new location. Welcome to housewrenstudio.com !
Hello, friends! I've teamed up with dear friends and artist teachers, Jenn McGlon of noodle and lou and Jone Hallmark for a new series of workshops.
I'm listening to the Canada geese flutter and honk out back on the mill pond. They are making their plans to share the water, the air, the shore. Won't be long before the season changes again. Up here in the studio, I feel it too.
This weekend, I taught a workshop on how to make paper flowers at Mohonk Mountain House for their Girlfriend's Getaway Weekend. In a little under an hour, everyone made at least one lovely, unique crepe paper flower—and many of the students made several.
Just for the fun of it, I hosted a girlfriends craft weekend here in Vermont. Robin drove up from Boston area and Melinda came from Philly.
Wishing you all a happy new year! I just updated my sidebar date and cannot believe this is year 12 for the blog!
Today's the day! We are opening registration for this exciting pair of June weekends with two amazing artists here in southern Vermont.

Meleen, Kana and I hosted our weekend guests with so much excitement!
Registration is open for our fall retreat! We will be making papier mache bird plaques and stitched hoop art collages.
We are excited to announce our next getaway in Vermont this fall. September 28 - October 1. Come and join us for a weekend of making and creative adventures in autumnal southern Vermont!

We're seeing spring in fits and spurts. Super warm, then blustery cold. But it is of course, very exciting and beautiful to see everything greening up.
I know that everyone has a lot to do to prepare for Easter, but if you are looking for a simple project, this is it.
I had a chat with a new friend yesterday about social media and its place in our lives.
We're opening requests for the spots today for our next Vermont event this spring! June 1-4, 2017. Jenn McGlon from Noodle and Lou is our guest artist.
Even though it's snowing like crazy, the time has come to tell you about our next spring event in southern Vermont! Our 12th event!
We are excited to have Jenn McGlon come back with her big bag of fun art tricks.
Fall swept through here like a fast-moving train. So many days, so quickly come and gone. Meleen and I hosted another art-making event in Vermont with the loveliest group of women. Rebecca Sower came up from Tennessee to lead an amazing workshop of watercolor painting and mixed media collage.
It's been a busy summer for me. And a lazy one at the same time. Lots of changes.
