the runaways

when i was seven i was going to run away.
i packed a hobo bag (you know...
a hanky filled up with the
stuff i thought i needed, tied onto a stick).

i put my bonnet on (yes my bonnet),
threw that hobo stick over my shoulder
and was heading out the door when my
mom asked, "where are you going?"
"i am running away from home" i said

i was so certain this was a good idea...
then my mom said, "oh, please don't go.  i will miss you."

so i stayed.

*this is what i was thinking of when i made this little painting.
that bag filled with hope.  that bunny with all kinds
of ideas in his head.  such a big world!

(sometimes i still want to run away and go and see it)

Mary Blair!


i am getting ready to go on vacation
and i am planning on reading all about
Miss Mary Blair while i am lounging at the beach.

Miss Mary is the gal i will be covering 
in the Studying Under the Masters Course.
(i think she is so cool- and i hope you will
think so too).

the vacation you ask?  well it's on the Oregon Coast

(maybe i will see a mermaid!)

or get a chance to play ball~

perhaps some ducks will walk by...

or i might get a chance to blow some bubbles
with my sweet nephew leo...
(that would be fun)

i will definitely be cooling off on the coast
(it is 95 degrees here on the palouse)!
THIS will be a really nice feature of the
break, a chance to drop the temperature.

mostly i am just excited to hang with 
my family again... because it has been 
WAY too long!

can't wait to get started!
on the vacation and on my research.

wish me luck.

OOx, cori

if you'd like to take the course with me (and the other 5 FAB women)
you can do it right here.
(right NOW!!!)


etsy success!


ages ago i was asked to contribute to an ETSY success
e-book, by a lovely gal called Anna White

it took me a while to come up with a tip or two-
but after putting on the thinking cap for a bit i was
able (i hope) to say something that people needed
to hear.

take a look!

and tell me what you think!

*it will be free Monday August 4th - Wednesday August 6th*
&  $2.99 after that.
