Light Up Lately?


I’ve been back at my full-time job for a month, and have neglected my art & blog! Oh well, ya gotta do, what you gotta do!! But, I’m still hanging in there with my plans/inspirations for some fun pieces, ie.. “My Therapy”!!

Let me know if you have a favorite cigar, wine, beer, or even hot sauce! With a little effort saving your favorite labels, I can create a one-of-a-kind piece for you. These are cigar bands that some cool dudes have been saving for me. Perhaps a unique foot stool or step stool, bar,..?    Scotch anyone?

…and Yes, I still have my art in Deja Vu!  Not sure if it’s the right venue, perhaps a fun gallery would be more appropriate?  Opinions welcome!



About Lela Mac

I am in the process of retiring after teaching Art & Interior Design with the NC Community College system for about 30 years. One is required to take a minimum six month sabbatical from any state work once declaring the retirement process. When my six months have passed, I will continue to teach Art/Design as an on-line adjunct. My first classes taught were as a Graduate Assistant at ECU. Next, at the Community College through the Continuing Education Department (watercolor, drawing, color theory,). Later, I began teaching Art classes related to Interior Design, and served as the department chair. I was honored as the Carteret Community College 2003 recipient of the Excellence in Teaching award. Over the years, I have participated in various art shows in eastern North Carolina, including work displayed in Raleigh in the State Office of Community Colleges. I enjoy decorative/faux finish painting, and also painting on canvas. I was sponsored as an artist in the 2001 Red Wolf Ramble and granted an Honorable Mention for my NCSU Dining-sponsored “Canis Rufus Patrioticus”. A few other artistic endeavors include the illustration of a children’s book for a local author and fund-raiser art for Habitat for Humanity. Full Steam Ahead with my art!

    • All fun ideas! For finer craftsmanship, thin labels are desirable for a smooth final surface. Also, the acquiring of such labels is always one of the interesting aspects! 🙂 After some advice from Cuz John, I had a little luck with at least one company that was happy to send me dozens of their products labels (w/o having to soak/peel/dry..)..
