Art of ReUse Contest Top 10 Finalist Discord Threads

A HUGE congratulations to Discord Threads (Kelleyanne Wank) who came in the top 10 finalists of the Art of ReUse contest.  Featured on the Today show and known nationally, Discord Threads specializes in creating gorgeous upcycled clothing.  Please visit her Artfire shop to see all her latest fashions or to request a custom order.

Once again, Kelleyanne, congratulations!!!

Kelleyanne recently purchased a brand new serger from  Both in the ad and on her invoice, the serger she bought was supposed to come with 12 cones of thread, 8 additional feet and 10 needles, none of which was in her package.  She contacted the about it and they said it was a typo and refused to honor the ad or her invoice.  Repeated emails and phone calls rendered the same result--they would not honor what they had advertised.  You can read more about it here:

And, Two More New Paintings

One of these paintings is very similar to another recently posted painting.  That is because I had another order for the original painting so painted a similar one for the new owner, bless her heart!  Each painting is 36x24 and costs about $100.
