Renee Zarate's Bolton House is still in New England but Renee herself has moved on to South Carolina. The days are a little different now, no garden to take care of means more studio time. Dealing with snow and blizzards will be a thing of the past but there will be new challenges. Challenges like...how will we ever carry these two chairs and this huge umbrella down to the beach? Stay tuned.

Published! The upcoming issue of the Stampers' Sampler
Wow! I just received my advance copy of the Stampers' Sampler and I was thrilled to see some of my work in print. It has been a long year with moving and all, that made it difficult for me to submit work to publications on a regular basis. I felt a bit like a gypsy with my plastic tubs of art supplies, dragging them from one place to another for months on end. When we finally loaded up my Jeep to drive down from Massachusetts to South Carolina almost the entire truck was full of my art supplies. It's a good thing we had movers bringing the furniture and close friends driving Joe's car down full of clothes, etc. Seriously, it was a little ridiculous but, oh well, bygones. Here is what the next issue looks like and a few of the pages.
Finnabair's new stamps by Prima
Kate Crane's new stamps by Stampotique
The issue is loaded with great ideas. So many wonderful artists have contributed, there are lots of new techniques to try. My friend Lynne Moncrieff has some LOVELY cards on 58 & 59 of this issue that are gorgeous. If you're near a Barnes & Noble or any where else the magazine is offered be sure and check it out.
Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my joy with you! Hugs ~ Renee
