Greetings from The Land of Blog, a place I have visited (all too frequently) as an outsider looking in.  And now here I am, taking the plunge, and starting my own blog.  I'll be taking baby steps at first, learning the ropes, and trying to figure out all the bells and whistles--so please bear with me, with these very plain vanilla first posts.  I will be adding the sprinkles, chocolate syrup, and the cherry on top as soon as I can wrap my brain around all of it.

My hope with this blog is that it will follow the progress of my new venture:  teaching collage and soldering classes.  My good friend Chris and I will be gathering groups of like-minded artsy-craftsy types for workshops in my studio, where we can share my stash of vintage ephemera and our know-how and have fun creating collages and jewelry.   So far, interest has been great and we are excited to start!  The very first flyers were mailed out today and we can't wait to hear back from all of you.  We know the classes will fill fast, so please get your registrations in as soon as you can.  We may consider adding more dates if we see the need.

Check back here as I update the progress we're making as we get ready for the classes.  I'll be posting sneak peeks of the studio and projects, and will have our registration form to download as well.  In the meantime, please leave a comment below and let me know you visited!  Hope to see you soon!


  1. margo, you inspire me always!! I love you so much!

  2. What began as girlfriend chatter is turning into reality. Collage College has put a new sense of excitement into my life.

  3. DANG. not even the first commenter. Can't wait to see how this little adventure evolves. I predict it will soon be on those long, long, lists of "favorite sites" that we get so caught up in!! Bring on the sprinkles and cherries on top!

  4. Why can't I live in Oregon?! I'd definitely be signed up. Can't wait to hear how your first class goes. I predict everyone will love it.

  5. I too am a first time blogger, and haven't figured it all out, but looks like you are well on your way. Good luck.
