Sunday Tidbits and Glimpses of Current Art Projects and Classes

Well by now, I was hoping to be back online 100%.  No such luck.  Friday I drove down to the Bay and had my computer guru trouble shoot my puter.  He confirmed it is not the hard drive, and after a few more trouble shots and lots of processes of eliminations, we are hoping that it is just a bad recovery disk.  I have to wait 5-7 days for the new one to come in.  If that doesn't work, then it is  most likely a problem with my mother board.  If that is the case, than I will have to send in my lappy, pay the fee and wait another 10 days.  Ughhh.  

So for now, I will just be hopping on here and there between my son's computer and my office computer.  However, my office computer is only limited to viewing property, writing contracts and emails.  Not much privacy would allow me to catch up on my beloved blog reading. :-(

In the mean time, I am getting caught up on my creative side. :D

I am making the final touches of the two classes I will be teaching in Southern California on July 11th and July 12th.  Once all the details are spelled out, I will surely pimp them out in the hopes to seeing some of you fine people in the class room!

Here are some pics of what I have been I have been doing: 

These are two examples of the doll class I will be teaching on July 11th at the Santa Clarita Craft Lab.  Oh, and not only is it going to be a class, but it is going to be a full on fiesta!  After all, we will be celebrating her birthday!  Ayeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Here are the examples of the classes I will be teaching at CJ's Angels, in Pamona, California on July 12th.  I am calling the class "Mixed Media Collage Faux Fresco Tile"  Wow, what a mouthful! haha

Exotic Potion Mixed Media Faux Fresco Tile by you.
They are so much fun to make!  I was inspired by a "Fresco" tile I purchased in Multipiciano,  Italy.  
I also participated in a couple of ATC Swaps.  I love ATC's especially hand painted or drawn ATC's.

This was a Tree ATC Swap I made for my partner.

These other two were hand drawn ATC's.  I used the opportunity to brush up on my drawing skills.  (or lack of)
