"Our Lady of Peace and Love"~~Dedicated to World Peace & Love on this 10th Anniversary of 9/11/2001

On this very significant weekend of not only the 10 year anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11/2001, but also, the numerical significance of the date tomorrow(9/10/11), as well as the “Full Moon in Virgo”, there is definitely a lot of energy moving around in the Universe.

Last night, I was up into the wee hours finishing this painting, “Our Lady of Peace and Love”~~dedicated to WORLD Peace and Love on this, the anniversary weekend of 9/11/2001.

I really wanted to go to sleep, as I need my rest to be ready to lead my “Women’s Creative Spirituality Workshop” this weekend. But, for some reason, this beautiful Lady kept calling out to me in Her gentle & loving way. “I need you to finish this, BEFORE this MOST SIGNIFICANT weekend to spread love & peace in the World. THEY NEED ME & this is something that you can do, in your own small way, to be a part of that POSITIVE energy.” So I listened, & I did it & here She is!

I’d also like to invite you to be a part of this “POSITIVE ENERGY MOVEMENT” with ME tomorrow at my Workshop! I REALLY want you all to come! This time, don’t worry @ $$. Payment plans & scholarships are available. This is about something BIGGER for me, for US. Please sign up, I will make it work!

Well, here it is! The signage is now up & out for all to see that Glitter Gypsy’s Art & Adventures is now officially OPEN  FOR BUSINESS!!! I’m so excited to begin sharing my art & studio with my clients!

Currently, I’m offering one-on-one private art classes FOR ALL LEVELS!! I mean it, sincerely, when I say that you need absolutely NO art experience, just a desire to be creative & express yourself in a very freeing, opening & non-judgemental setting. I have found nothing short of miracles unfold as I have worked with women of all ages, all backgrounds, all levels describe their experiences & revelations after just one workshop! You see, ART, in all it’s many forms, is a tool that allows you to access & mine all sorts of emotions, ideas & revelations that are simply not available to the conscious, busy, chattering mind. When we let go of our expectations, to-do lists & “responsibilities,” if only for a little while, something magical happens…..hours slip away…..the mind settles & it just feels really good!

You get to design your menu. Now, wait, DO NOT let that scare you!!! What I mean by that, is you get to decide what type of art form that you would like to create during your session. Not to worry, I will walk you through every step, if needed & give you space if that’s what you prefer. But, I’ll be there for YOU. Some of your choices are: Collages & Mandalas, Personal memory boxes,shrines, & “nichos”(beautiful tin & glass “shrines” from Mexico,) embellished vintage trunks & cigar boxes, paintings, jewelry design & creation, & even more. I provide all of the materials, studio space (high on a ridge in Hawaii Kai-Honolulu with ocean & mountain views from every room to inspire you,) & personalized instruction.

I will also be posting my fall workshop schedule soon, so subscribe to my site, & you’ll be FIRST to receive the latest info. The workshops will be small & personalized, so you can receive all of the assistance & attention that you desire.

The cost for private classes is $50.00/per hour, with a minimum of  2-3 hours recommended. All materials, as I stated previously, are provided, with the exception of  trunks & cigar boxes. There is an additional fee for those, or you may bring your own. Please feel free to email or call with any questions.

The group workshops will be starting in late September/early October & will run 1 Saturday a month from 10:30-6:00. Each month we will have a new project or “theme.” The group workshops will be $75.00 for the entire day, including materials, with the exception of  vintage trunks/ boxes/tins (*additional fee for these or you may provide your own.)

I am so happy to be starting this new series~~”The Women’s Spiritual Creativity Series,”~~designed to inform, teach, inspire & support women in a creative & safe setting. Think of this as the modern woman’s “quilting bee, card club or afternoon tea circles” that our Mothers & Grandmothers used to do to bond & connect with their “sisters.” I hope that you will consider these offerings as a gift for yourself & your girlfriends or colleagues.

Testimonials from previous students:

“My nicho came out nothing like I’d planned. First of all, I collaged everything on BEFORE I realized that it was upside down!!! But I love it~~instead of a sunrise, it’s a sunset. And  the colors that I ended up choosing were the exact opposite of what I’d had planned…..but they’re beautiful in the way that the colors ‘pop.’………..I don’t know of many artists who not only collect these kinds of materials, but also share them with their students. I’m so happy with my work of art!” L.M.~Kailua

“As I tried to unravel the yarn that I wanted to use for my project, it kept getting ‘stuck & tangled’ every time I thought that I was making progress. But as I forged on, I realized that the getting stuck is really a metaphor about life. We ‘get stuck’ all the time, but we carry on. And when we stick with it, sometimes miraculous results unfold.” dr….Honolulu

“I found that this creative project felt to me kind of like a test~~like I’m really focused on doing a good job, but it’s not stressful, like a test would be. It’s the opposite feeling~~relaxing & good……………….I have all sorts of art projects that I mean to pull out & work on, but the TV or the bed always seems to win out……………… this was a great opportunity for me to be creative, have fun & bonding with everyone, & leave with a finished piece that I LOVE!!!………….L.M.~Pearl City


In sisterhood,

Susan, aka~Glitter Gypsy

The signs are up!

Welcome to Glitter Gypsy’s Adventures!!! I’m so glad that you could come on over! I’m really excited to be out here in the virtual glitter world with all of you. Well, if you read my biography, you probably got a taste of what I’m all about. My missions in life are to create art, spread beauty, glitter, fun and love around the world.

When I create a piece, be they a painting, a piece of jewelry, or a sculpture, I’m thinking about making the world a better place. Really! You know that feeling when you see, feel or experience something that makes you feel really good, I believe we need more of those experiences. I want to give you all a beautiful, tiny permission slip ( so that it will fit anywhere– your purse, pocket, or your cleavage, for that matter,) to allow yourselves to do what makes YOU feel awesome, beautiful, and powerful. Because power is really an illusion.

You know when you have it, and you don’t really care what other people think of you, because you’re being authentic and real. Now that’s authentic power. Once you tap into your own power, talents, and gifts, no one can take that away from you. Because you own it. And then, when you sprinkle glitter all over it, people can’t resist you! Make a date with your girlfriends this weekend and encourage femininity and FUN! You’ll be so glad you did! Check in often–I’d love to hear your comments!…….

Aloha…….Glitter Gypsy Mama……..
