Doodlebugheart is in Larchmont!

We have officially launched Doodlebugheart in Larchmont, NY! Although we wish Deborah and her family weren't moving to Texas, we are *thrilled* with the fabulous women who welcomed us! Everyone opened, unfurled, crafted, ate, toasted, and laughed. Thank you, women. You are amazing!
Deborah's welcome toast

"Studio B", was a-buzz!
Betsy chose pretty papers for her "10 Things" envelope
Nancy tracing the template
Rebecca playing with patterns
Patricia chose vibrant colors
Little dabs of paint
Rebeccas' sweetest details!
"10 Things" slips of paper
Patricia and Heather's beautiful contrasts!
Virginia -- fabulously unfurling!
Laura -- giggling too
Susan pale pretty contrast
Dr. Kristin's Happiness!
Even art therapists unfurled! (Debbie)
And the winner is...
Rebecca won the Basic 'Bug Box!
Andrea won the Travel Kit!
After we came together, shared, bonded, and took a breath, we were so so happy. 
Isn't that what it's all about?
Of course, there was dancing!
(Special note to those not pictured here... I'm sorry. Many of my photos were blurry -- there was a lot of laughing and giggling going on! But don't think you're safe. I'll get you next time. :)

Erin Faith Allen ~ As an international mixed media art teacher, I act as a guide inward ~ to the innate creative genius spark that lies within every one of us.  An artist and empath, I experience the world on a supernatural level.  I make art to understand and process my self, life, and the planet I live on.  My work conveys the delicate dance between light and shadow, and I believe we must know our depths to know our heights: we must howl in wild stark exposure at the moon in order to know true bliss in the glow of sun. 
My artwork can be found on
Is your soul a stream of consciousness word parade that flows across your surface?  Does it swoosh in gentle abstract harmony, or blaze it’s way vibrantly across the page?  Have you ever created a piece of art with direct connection and intention to express this pure and unique essence of self?   In this soul-full hands-on collaging workshop we will dive into the depths of our very being, to find our own unique soul signature and express it through mixed media collage. 

The clarity of self-image will assist greatly in manifesting your dreams, desires, and circumstances that are your hearts desire.  To hold a self-created image of WHO YOU ARE is a talisman for growth, a gift that keeps on giving for years to come!  You will be given tools of self-awareness that can be utilized in your studio and career, to unleash your potential through this creative process at any time you need to connect with yourself for answers, guidance, or fun.

With guided visualizations, music, and stream of consciousness writing we will create at least one Soul Portrait, and as many as time allows! See some examples of Erin's work below:
