Home from Art Unraveled
First off this picture of the moon setting is what I woke up to this morning. It gives me a sense of tranquility to sit out in the quiet morning and see this view. I tend to get up early before anyone else rises in my family (unless my husband is up to go play golf!).
I had a marvelous time at Art Unraveled in Phoenix. Linda Young the promoter does a fantastic job of running this retreat!
I drove to LA the first day and saw Connie who took me to the TV set where she helps direct the new series "The Starter Wife". Then we went to Santa Monica to eat and had our "fortunes" told by some street psychics. On my drive home I went through Sedona and had a truly relaxing time with my dear friend Jan and her husband Dave. A beautiful place to live!
My first day at AU I took a class and then I was busy meeting with friends, setting up for vendor day and vending, and teaching. I have lots of photos so I'm going to start posting them. Pictures do tell the story. I'll start with photos of my vendor booth and then pictures of my ribbon dyeing class. We dyed silk ribbons and silk fabric strips. Look how wonderful they all turned out!
I will save the photos from my other class for another post.
Angie, Joanne, and Fran are women I had known only online in a Yahoo art group. I got to meet them in person and felt like I'd known them forever. Joanne I knew before from Kauai and meeting up with her in Missouri. We had already formed a friendship but was great to see her again.
