What's New for the New Year

A very happy holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, etc.) from Evy and Diane! We are both so excited to meet the New Year with products and services for our local communities of San Luis Obispo, the 5 Cities, and Nipomo. Our specialty is no-hassle, easy-on-the-pocketbook, and FUN art and writing help. See what we are offering below*.

Saying goodbye to 2010 raises mixed feelings. Looking back on the move from San Diego to the Central Coast, two words come to mind: joy and fatigue! But we're all in agreement that it was the best move we could have made. We've been painting, writing, gardening and pressing flowers to our heart's content. It was great fun at the Morro Bay Arts and Crafts Faire, a chance to peddle our wares and meet yet more new folks in a neighboring community. 

Diane has really enjoyed being a member of the writing community, specifically SLO NightWriters, aptly called the “Premier Writing Group on the Central Coast.” These are some genuinely talented writers with a very positive outlook. Look for Diane's published story “Bingo at Belly Acres” (you can Google it) in Tolosa Press's three publications, SLO News, Bay News, and Coast News. Interested in SLO-NW? See their website:

So here we are—healthier, happier, and more hopeful about what the future will bring. Hope you are as well. Join us!
