The Children's Festival!

Whit and I had such a great time at The Children's Festival today! This is a great event that happens yearly where a lot of our great artists come and help introduce the world of art to many children! We worked in the bead stringing area. There was clay throwing, ship building, book making, seed bead work, origami, puppet making, painting, cartooning, drawing, sewing, etc........

And of course there was face painting. Whit and I got a lot of comments on our faces! I painted myself and then decided that Whit needed to be painted too, he was totally game. Boy did we get the looks when we went into Safeway after the festival!

The weather couldn't have been better. Tomorrow is supposed to be even nicer. I think a beach walk may be store. Have a great day!

Getting Ready!

I got so much accomplished in the last few days with a ton of help from my good friend Nicole Valentine!

Almost all of the glass is sorted and packed for my upcoming Masters Class. Business cards and banners have been ordered.... going to finish packing up my display stuff and supplies and get it all shipped out by Monday (I hope)! That way I can devote a whole month with no worries about the details and just create..... this is definitely a first for me and it feels great!

I have been busy designing new beads and silver bracelets. Many of my bracelets will have 24 karat gold plated accents applied to them.

I am so looking forward to the show and seeing so many great friends and making many more new ones!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

New items in MY ETSY.

What a beautiful day we are having here in the great northwest! We started our day at our local farmers market, there were so many smiling faces! I am sure that the sun being out had a lot to do with it.

Have a wonderful Easter weekend! We are looking very forward to spending ours with great friends and family. Happy egg hunting!
