well...today I wandered into HEAVEN !!
Quite by accident...one link on Facebook led to another which led to another and the next thing I knew...BINGO...I was driving 30 minutes south into a whole new experience.
THE ARTSY SOUL
59 North Main Street, Manahawkin, NJ
I just have to share this experience...cause that's what it was...a visual Disneyland-like experience. Like being in a book store, a bead shop, an art supply store all at the same time...and, with dolls and product and samples everywhere !
Colleen is quite well known for her sculpture and her gorgeous art dolls. I can't say for sure that she personally made all of these dolls (some may have been students in her classes)
but they were simply gorgeous.
she offers workshops with other instructors and there are tons of samples everywhere.
you have never seen so many supplies and baubles in one place done with such flair !!
a classroom area that can seat up to 12
(R U a teacher in the tri state area...give Colleen a call!!!...SERIOUSLY...SHE'S LOOKING FOR GOOD TEACHERS, dont be shy)
did I say lots of product..??.....LOTS of product
hard to find product.....!!
colorful product !!
everywhere you look...PRODUCT !! GREAT prices.
papers, and molds I'd never seen before !!
Think UTEE !!
so....what can I tell you....I found a zillion things I HAD TO BUY....(as if I dont already have enough!!)...so, if you want to make a lovely drive to the shore area please be sure to stop at
