ceLeBraTe



Stampaway is over for another year. It was quite a jampacked six days personally and professionally. It is wonderful to see the same people year after year and to feel the undercurrent of energy and excitement. My classes were well-filled and full of ladies that amazed and inspired me the whole time. I saw some fabulous color combinations and design strategies that I can't wait to try after my studio is CLEAN. That is my goal for this week since I need to gear up for four upcoming events. The piece of artwork above is a sample from my demo today (ignore the lousy paint job on the canvases. Time was critical.) I see a new class in the future................

I took my first carving class from Connie Newbanks early on Thursday. SHE IS OUTSTANDING! Tracy got in from St. Louis on Thursday after my Kaleidoscope class and we scurried out for dinner at Pappadeaux (horrible waiter, great company and conversation). Deb was indispensible to the smooth running of the class and as a chauffeur (my car's steering column ...R.I.P) and I just LOVE having her there with me. Friday's ATC class was sold out and Tracy effortlessloy kept everything running smoothly. We had a wonderful lunch in Glendale and a bit of shopping as well before I took Tracy to a quilting studio to see the quilting machine to end all machines. Friday night was the preview party and it was delightful to browse without being elbow to elbow. I DROPPED A LOAD ON PAULA BEST'S JEWELRY http://www.paulabestsilver.com/ . Saturday I had to leave my friends for a few hours while Sammi was choreographed on floor. I then returned to the convention center and spent some more shopping time with them. Dinner was at Vincenzo's and was fabuolous as was Connie's vendor/teacher party on Saturday night. An illusionist was there that knocked my socks off. Today's demo went fine and I did debut some brand new techniques from this week. I hope everyone enjoys playing with them!!!!!!!!

Off to get some well-needed zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs.
