Now that was FUN!!!

Today was a typical Northwest rainy kind of day. I woke up with a cold..... but decided it would be a great day to be in the studio. So out to the studio I go.... I was playing with making some rings with gypsy set rubies. Well it wasn't really going all that well. I think I will take a class and see if I can learn the correct way to do this instead of my made-up way!

So then I get a text from a good friend saying that she is going to the casino.... and do I want to meet her and her sister there... Well am I ever glad that I decided to go!!! WOW this was so much fun!!! I walked out of there ahead $1,700.00!!!! I am putting this money away for Tucson, it is more than enough to cover my airfare, rental car, hotel and food! I don't go to the casino very often but I have to admit the casino has been awful good to me this year!

Tomorrow I plan on making some galaxy within beads to get ready for my upcoming trip to Austin. They should be done by Tuesday and I will take a few photos to show ya!

Have a great week my friends!

Show this Saturday!

Hope to see some of you here!!!!

1st Annual Art Show of new artist's group
Hands On Art is a showcase of the professional, accomplished artists that are part of the "Fearless Experimental Artists" group. The group of 12 artists has been meeting monthly since March of this year. The group formed as a venue to stretch themselves outside of their boxes of the artwork they each create. There is much exploration, laughter, and new artwork created amongst this loose knit group of like minds. They have found this a fun way to stay fresh in their art activities. The show is a great chance to meet these artists, see their work, and see them at work in each of their mediums. The artists participating are Andrea Guarino-Slemmons, Karen Page, Haden Starbuck, Jeannie Fine, Julie Abowitt, Phoebe Huffman, Marlene Newman, and Kath Raymond. They cover a wide variety of mediums from soap to jewelry, to paintings etc.
"Hands on Art" will be 10-4 on Saturday, Nov. 19th, at the Masonic Lodge - 1338 Jefferson.

On another note... I have had several requests to go back to this format for my blog so that people can see my links to other blogs....
