My July 2018 teaching schedule so far is exciting - first two classes for Georgia O'keeffe week at Wiawaka on Lake George https://wiawaka.wordpress.com/georgia-okeeffe-week/ then Mandala creating class at Lily Dale July 20th :). Can't wait!!!
I am so grateful when people who purchase my work truly love it :) These are recent reviews on Etsy.

Mar 10, 2017 5 out of 5 stars Quick shipping. Beautiful cards. Like how they are square. I feel like you could produce them as coasters! How soothing to enjoy a cup of tea, look at the art and ponder.

Feb 23, 2017 5 out of 5 stars Tina is wonderful. I contacted her in hopes the cards could arrive in time for an event and she made sure they went out the next morning. The deck is great - high quality, vibrant and full of wonderful inspirations. It's well packaged and I love the velvet bag that comes with it to hold them - and the little card Tina slipped in. Highly recommend.
Thanks Katie at Almost a Fairy Godmother for the great article on me and my work. So appreciated!
As promised I will show you how I get my toothpaste, mouthwash, etc. usually for free from Rite Aid. A week to two weeks ahead of time I go to the Iheartriteaid.com site to see the ads. They usually have the ads for 2-3 weeks in the future. If I know it is going to be a big sale - I will go to Raise and order a gift card at a reduced price to get an even better deal. In the Buffalo area you can go to this site or this site for the national audience. The sites are amazing and do most of the work for you. They give you what is on sale, a link to a printable coupon(or date it is in the paper), etc. It has saved me huge amounts of money over the years. I also supply my grown sons and friends with extras too. This week I got juice at a great deal(stock up for holiday drinks), 4 candy bars for Easter baskets(from inserts my friend save for me from the newspaper), toothpaste and mouth wash. The total came to $8.43 with tax and I will get $3 back on my card. Not bad for around $5!
So I am back to blogging after a few years off! In my defense(I know- excuses,excuses) I moved twice, taught many-many classes, did a few art shows, and volunteered a ton! I feel the need to blog again and tell everyone my story. Basically I live a simple life with my husband and old dog in ski country South of Buffalo. We sold our renovated carriage house a year and a half ago, downsized to move into a small apartment for 6 months until we found the house we adore. My two adult sons didn't move with us this time - and that was an adjustment to live a kid free life. I work from home, creating all sorts of things, selling my inspirational art products, and cooking/baking as much as possible to eat as chemically free as I can. I teach life skills and art classes at 9 libraries in WNY and other places across NY. The classes include truffle making, silk scarf painting, zentangle, jam making, gardening and more. Every few days I will post something new that I am doing and include a lot that I am teaching. Stay tuned - it should be fun :)
