how-to!

new home
yes, it's a new home.  (c) sarah ahearn. 2009


happy friday!  
i've been waiting to share this news with you for a while, but i now have the a-okay to let the cat outta the bag as they say!  my first how-to article has been published and is currently on newsstands in the july/august issue of memory makers magazine!  memory makers is a scrapbooking magazine that has a "mixed media" article each month that encourages readers to try something different.  i was contacted by the magazine back in january, they asked me to use the theme "life changes" as inspiration for an article and new painting to be featured in the mixed media column.  it was so fitting as we were in the midst of a big life change, moving, at the time!  as soon as we were somewhat settled in our "new home" i made this piece and wrote the how-to for the magazine.  the whole process has been a wonderful experience for me, and i love how it all came together in the magazine.  i hope you'll get a chance to see the whole article (a full two page spread!) and perhaps i'll inspire you to try some new-to-you techniques! big thanks to katie, it's been so nice working with you on this!  
i'm going to be making some prints of "new home" and have the original framed up to go into my shop next week.  speaking of etsy, there are a now three originals for sale and lots of prints have been restocked.  

well, i'm off to the studio (a quick walk across the street!) to squirrel myself away and get to work. i'll have some new pieces to share with you next week, another {8 things}, and a new sketchbook!  (i'm so glad you liked the last one!)  

thanks for being here and see you then!  xo, *s
