As some of you may know I work for a small portion of the summer at an preforming arts camp called Camp Stanley in the middle of the woods in Maine. This past August was my 5th year returning to create with this outstanding production. Camp Stanley is 2 weeks long. The kids are given one word, like Repeat, or Electric, Magic, ect. Then.. amazingly they create original music, lyrics, dance and write a script for a play they all preform for their folks at the end of two weeks. These shows they have come up with continually blow me away. Its fantastic to see what they can come up with when they are encouraged and given the space to create.  On top of that.. they make a promo film with me!

This summer was a hard one. Because of that early labor day the kids had to get back to school so we had to pull camp back to only ONE WEEK. IN ONE WEEK these kids made AN AMAZING show around the word Yes! For the film i decided to have their voices apart of it, telling stories in their own lives where they felt a lot of “no” and the outcome was “yes!”. Then I had them take that experience and create.. creatures out of them. more specifically.. aqua puppets! I have decided to create another post on those things later. Then I wanted to create situations for them where there would usually would be a lot of no.. but i was saying yes! do it!! things like.. going down a water slide in dress up clothes, laying in flower beds.. or my dream.. having a pillow fight in the middle of the woods at night with lights! I have never made such a mess for making a video before.. but it was well worth it!! more laters

for now check it out!!!

what a show! It was such a huge honor to be the featured artist with Whatever The Outcome. In a nut shell I was asked (within only a week.. ) to create a painting of anything on a giant magnet.. afterwards ..  the magnet was then cut up into pieces and distributed to a bunch of people. then we all got together and put the painting back together to reveal the image. 

My dreams came true when Polly Hill Arboretum agreed to host the event! Huge thanks to them.. if you are ever on the island, you should go there and enjoy the beautiful trees, gardens and give them money. 

on top of that one of my all time favorite bands based out of LA called Freddy and Francine (which I will dedicate an entire post to in the future) preformed and i got to sing some back up vocals with the amazing beauteous Bianca Caruso and her handsome guitar player Lee Farris, and the fantastic drummer, Mike Reilly from Hoots and Hellmouth joined the party last minuet too making this event so perfect. 

Im going to take some more space on this post to thank some people and do some shout outs.. I’ve been such a scatter brain that I feel like I didn’t really get a chance to do this the night of the event

thank you thank you Craig Miner the creator of Whatever the Out Come. You are.. a wizard.

Ever wanted to learn how to spin yarn with out a spinning wheel? great! … because humans figured it out before spinning wheels were invented! 

Drop Spinning!!!! 

When I was in college I started being a foster mom for angora rabbits for just the winters. I knew I wanted to try making yarn with their fluff. I looked into a spinning wheel but that totally wasn’t an option at the time due to space and school loans! After going to the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival I picked up drop spinning and bought a simple bottom whorl and practiced and practiced. With the help of some library books and the internet I was a spinning master! (ok not master.. )  it was so soothing to just pick up and create something when I came home after class or just while watching tv. 

So now I’ve decided to make a kit for beginners who want to try drop spinning for the first time.. or maybe you just want a really hip drop spindle.

check em out here!
