Exhibitionist--look at my art!


Hello Pin Pals!
Just a quick question for today. What would be your first thought if you saw the word 'Exhibitionist"written on the front of someone's shirt? Well in my daily excursions I've found that alot of people normally think the worst of a situation before they find out more. The reason I'm asking is that I have these shirts that I wear to get attention for my web gallery to drum up more business. The front of the shirt says "exhibitionist--look at my art!" and the back has www.refineartgallery.com. Well of course I chose the wording carefully to get attention but you'd be surprised at the looks I get because they only read exhibitionist first without reading the next lines. I laugh every time I see someone reading and have this weird look on their face. It makes me feel like telling them to get their mind out of the gutter! hahhaha!!! Of course after they read on and see the website address is a gallery the red face syndrome suddenly disappears. One day a sales clerk in a store stopped my husband and I and asked him why would he let me wear a shirt like that?!!! Then as 'she' was speaking she continued reading the next lines then looked at the back of the shirt and said....."Oh." Needless to say she was very embarrassed. So Pin Pals if you ever see me out in one of my company tees know what I'm all about....my art....exhibiting....showing my ART!

Have a good one!

Houston's Big Bowl for Big Brothers,Big Sisters



Hey Pin Pals!
The Bowl for Kids Sake on Saturday was wonderful! The pins got a lot of attention as usual....very eye catching. Some of the bowlers were so excited when they saw the pin display because they thought that they were going to be the trophies. Now that's the ultimate compliment from bowlers! We saw some familiar faces and met alot of new people including some adorable 'Littles' at the event. Alex and I even bowled a for a little while with this team of two very interesting ladies. Got my picture taken with the pins by the Houston Chronicle, had plenty of good food, and best of all came home with a couple of commissions. I love being an artist! Overall the Bowl for Kids Sake' was very successful for Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Greater Houston. Oh and by the way, if any of you would actually like to donate you still can, their fundraiser continues through November...just log onto their website. Or if you would like a Big for your Little, you can give them a call to find out more about the program or visit their site and they'll get you hooked up!

Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake


Hello Pin Pals!
Just a quick message to say hello. It's time to bowl! Tomorrow is the big show I'm doing with the Big Brothers Big Sisters Organization's 'Bowl for Kids Sake' where I will be exhibiting my pins and donating 30% of the proceeds to their organization. It's always exciting to be able to show my work to more people who've never seen it before. The added bonus here is that a portion of my sales go to helping them raise money to maintain their very needed program for adults (Bigs) who help volunteer their time to help children (Littles) reach their full potential through one-to one mentoring relationships. Their goal is to raise $200,000. Every little bit helps and it feels good to know that my donation will get them dollars closer to reaching their goal! So if you're in the area or would like to come by to show your support for the Houston Big Bowl, just come on by Palace Lanes at 4191 Bellaire Blvd. from 10am - 6pm.

Have a good one!
