A little diversion

Well, I stopped for the week! I had signed up for a workshop that was daily just to get my brain in a new place… that it did!… I don’t see this as my permanent style, but it was fun to create.. and it allowed my mind to wander a bit and come up with new classes I wanted to add to my offerings! YAY… so sometimes… mindless work is healthy!

So I will be adding some more Paper Making classes, along with a Mixed Media with a project to USE the paper we make in the 1st class! It takes a couple days to dry so I’ll probably space the out a week or 2 apart…

I also have some Gelli printing on Fabric classes I want to put out there. That is SO much fun!, and then some greeting cards made from gelli printed papers as well! There are just all kinds of ideas rolling around in my head!

But I really just wanted to touch base with you and let you know I’m still here… and have to watch for the new classes on THIS PAGE.

Thanks for being here!

I think I’ve slept since then

Okay so I may have taken National lazy day a little too far and turned it into National lazy weekend and into the next week. LOL but in all fairness I have had a lot on my plate over the last few days. Yesterday was our 23rd wedding anniversary, trying to come up with a gift a is always challenging for the man who has everything he wants and could more easily buy anything else on his list than I could. He likes expensive toys what can I say.

Yesterday was our trial run for the art reception we are holding on Zoom Saturday morning. I think it will go fine there are just several people playing parts and we all had to know our part and I had to know when to switch between people since I am monitor Queen of the zoom room. LOL

Monday I had Three other Zoom meetings. One was my regular Monday morning Art Marketing meeting, another was spent working out details for yesterday’s trial run, and Monday night was our All Member Illinois Art League meeting where we were treated to a photography demo by Doug & Eileen Leunig. Calling it a photography demo is almost insulting in my mind. They literally use their cameras as their paint brush. The things they do with a camera are not taught in your run-of-the-mill photography class. If you ever get a chance to see them or see their work, do it! I did get permission to share this one picture with you and if you are craving more info on them here is one place to start.
