My Craft-a-thon begins

My studio is FINALLY clean!!!  We will see how long that lasts! LOL

Hello there.  It is me, your long lost blogger Tatiana A.K.A Tanya to my dear friends and family.  I took a little bit of a photography detour, but am now back on track thanks to glimpses of Open Studios Tour in the not so distant future.  For those of you Chico, CA locals here is what the Chico Art Center has to say about the O. S. A. Tour…..

———————————————————————————————————————————————–

“The 2010 Open Studios Art Tour will be an eventful and fun-packed adventure for the whole family. Take the self guided tour on the first two weekends in October and visit some of the over 90 artists in their studios. Works on display and for sale include all mediums: painting, sculpture, glass, clay, prints, jewelry, photography, fiber art and more.

The 2010 Open Studios Art Tour has over 100 artists displaying and demonstrating in 67 locations throughout Chico, Oroville and Paradise. The Art Tour this year is two (2) weekends. The reception and Gallery Exhibit Opening is on October 1 from 7pm to 9pm. The actual tour dates are October 2 and 3 and October 9 and 10. The hours for all the studios are 10:00 am -5:00 pm.

It is a whirlwind event, and one that no one who is the least bit interested in Art and the processes involved should miss.

I AM ONE OF THE O. S. A. TOUR ARTISTS THIS YEAR AND WILL BE OPENING MY STUDIO AND SELLING LOTS OF MY FUN CREATIONS DURING OCTOBER 2-3 and OCTOBER 9 – 10 BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 10:00 am & 5:00 pm.

Since there are only 30 days until the Tour begins, I have decided to challenge my self to a craft-a-thon!  My mission is to complete one piece of artwork or jewelry every day!  Yes, 30 pieces in 30 days…can’t wait to see what I come up with.  There is also a secret mission I will not reveal till the end and a contest I will be posting on my Facebook fan page, so “like” me…http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/TheCraftyCutie

Most of the pieces I complete will be available for sale at my studio during “the tour,”  but some will be available at Made In Chico’s store instead.  So stay tuned for pictures of what I am creating throughout this adventure.
