Articulation 2-24-04
February 24, 2004
Hi ~

Here in New York, we're still in the midst of a very long winter, the hardest we've had (weather-wise) in many years. This winter has overflowed with metaphors and lessons for me, perhaps made even more prominent by the fact that I was rather obsessed with the theme of winter when working on Artella 5, Winter Magic & Muse.

The coming of Spring is also rich in metaphor. My Articulation offering for this week, Blooming Brave, plays with this idea.

The Shoppes' Corner!

This week, our featured artist is Karen Weiss. No matter the media -- be it her dynamically whimsical paintings, inspiring sterling silver jewelry, or stunning sculpture -- Karen's artistic skill and generous heart are evident in all of her inspiring creations. She is also a soulful sweetheart...I had the pleasure of meeting her in person when I was vacationing in Dallas over the Holidays! I hope you will take a look at her inspiring work.

If you check out the Shoppes home page, you'll see that we've added some signs to our windows! Not only do we have "New Item" signs (which stay up for 2 weeks after an item is added), but we also have signs to indicate which shoppes include items on sale, to make discount shopping super-easy. Come visit our village!

Speaking of sales, our newest sale item is the inspiring Romance Composition Book, designed by our very own Deb Silva! (If you don't know Deb, she is Artella's amazing Administrative Assistant, a frequent contributor, and a fabulous artist.)

If you'd like to support The Shoppes of Artella, but only have a few dollars to spend, consider these fabulous products for $10 or less! (And, like all shoppes products, the prices include shipping):
Do YOU have a service to sell? We're very interested in creating a new Services shoppe, where we can help you sell YOUR service for as low as $30 for your setup fee.

For example, take a look at Barbara Miller's home page we're marketing her skills as an e-Proofreader.

Artful Links!

1. Tuscan Rose is a great online store for inspiring art supplies: collage sheets, unique ephemera, rubber stamps, and more. It also has a gorgeous Gallery of projects, so be sure to check that out while you are there! Highly recommended!

2. The PowerPoint presentations at A World of Possibilities (sponsored by University of Kentucky College of Agriculture's Cooperative Extension Serice) really knocked Deb's and my socks off. These are free, inspiring mini-courses that aim to help viewers acquire skills to be calmer, happier, more energetic, and more effective in their lives. Be sure to spend some time watching the free presentations at this site!

Wishing you courage to find the sun,

~petaling on,
