New Website, Amate Studios, Junk Tour, and something called "LAAASING"!.

Here is a full post of goodies.

So I have made a few changes.
A new website For Jack & Cat Curio has been posted.
Let me know your thoughts. If you know me... you will know
that I'm always on the tech lookout for easy friendly tech programs
for my students, friends , and family.
Not everyone likes to sit and code their own sites or widgets.
I stumbled across this flash program for websites.
Flash= animation or movement goodies.
So far I like the site. No hassle.
Its free. With pay upgrades. So check it out.
Especially if your looking for a quick cost effective way to promote and share.

Our new website:

Also the flash website mentioned is:

Also I have added a links beeswax section
for my fellow beeswax students and friends.
Linked are a few sites that I have made reference about in classes.
I was able to dedicate some time to the blog this weekend.
Also posted updates for class listings.
More will be forthcoming.
Especially in the month of August.
This August will be a crazy month here in Arizona.
Art Unraveled will be from August 4-11th.
Then Creative Escape
will be held from August 27-29th.
This town will be filled with fantastic classes and workshops.

Arizona is already a hotbed for altered art/ mixed media/ scrapbooking talent.

Why... it was just the other day.
I was called over to Mystic Paper to meet two
local charming artistic personalities.
One of these ladies I had the pleasure of already knowing.
The other I had heard about-but never met.
Both can be found in this month's Somerset Studio.
Who did I meet?
Carlene Federer and Becky Bunn.

Both are very inspiring and sassy as hell.
Qualities Lesley and I admire greatly!
Thanks for the shop talk and good convo ladies!

Carlene, myself (aka Ranger Mike), Becky
