Artists on Instagram


I purposely avoided Instagram for the first few years it existed because I didn’t want One More Thing to keep up with. I’ve succumbed. How could I not? It’s perfect for short-attention-spanned visually-excited people like moi!

In that spirit, check out the newest page on our website, Instagram! I’ve started us off with a handful of the Rochester Artisans that I follow. Want to be added? Shoot me an email with your Instagram handle and other social media too (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest), You Tube and your blog.

I’m a work in progress but I’m honing my hashtag skills, which always reminds me of this hilarity.

Heart-full Artist, Susan Carmen-Duffy

CreateArt4Good Blog Header

Susan Carmen-Duffy’s 600-square-foot studio, in the Hungerford Building on East Main Street, is also home to Create Art 4 Good, an organization that supports both artists and those in need. She works full time managing the media labs at West Irondequoit High School but can be found at the studio most every day of the week, working on her own art, hosting workshops and curating a rotating monthly exhibit.

Read the rest of the Democrat & Chronicle article here!

I encourage you to visit her Create Art 4 Good website, to learn more about her and especially see her Call for Art page – she always has good stuff going on.

Susan also has a strong presence on social media:

Flying Whale Artist Open House – Friday, Saturday & Sunday

Flying Whale 2014

Are you looking for locally handmade gifts? Drive past the malls and big box stores to beautiful Geneva, NY. This is the 3rd annual open house held by Kevin & Mary Schoonover and I promise, you will be soon making this your traditional Thanksgiving weekend event.

This is a “drop-off” show for the artists. We 31 artists drop off our product & displays and Kevin and Mary take it from there. Then we arrive back on Sunday afternoon and pack up any leftovers. Technically, we all try to arrive a little early because lots of us do our shopping here too.

Here’s the link to Kevin’s reminder email, which contains photos and quotes, which will surely entice you to make plans to visit this weekend. There’s even a wine tasting courtesy of Billsboro Winery tonight, 6-8.

My sweet little songbird can be found on Sticky Notes and as a hanging ornament.

Do Good & Feel Good with Heather Collins, LMT

Heather Collins

I visited Heather Collins in 2013 after she was recommended by a friend, who respected Heather’s intuitive skills, which is something I was looking for. Some people may call her a “psychic”; Heather prefers the term spiritual healer. I was feeling very stuck but couldn’t figure out why or what to do about it. Heather helped me get unstuck. There was no giant eureka moment, but over the weeks following my appointment with her, I was able to put it all together. You can read about my experience here.

I only went to Heather that one time (Hilton is almost an hour away from Fairport) and have never had a massage by her. I just like her. When I received today’s email offer, I asked her if I could share it because I like that she’s tying her offer of a discount to a good deed. It feels good to do good – and if discounted massage comes your way as a result, all the better. The details are below and her contact info is at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!
