An update on all of my "goings on"!

Whew wee! So much has been experienced since my last post! Let me tell you what...
Cindy Lou had her birthday on May 5th, so she had to endure the birthday song phone call I give to all my loved ones! You know, maybe they just set the phone down for a while. I'm not sure!
I also experienced hot yoga for the first time with some of the girls from work. Wow, now if you're lookinig for an invigorating and cleansing experience, you must try. Very interesting to say the least...

Friday the 7th I offered a mini workshop at a retirement community: "Making Your Own Stamps for Embellishment!" We had a great time and I will return on May the 21st for "Creative Collage Techniques".

Here are two of my students:

We celebrated Mothers Day over at JP and Carol's house and had a great day in the pool! Perfect with all the kids and Moms! Thanks to everyone, especially our hosts. It always warms my heart when we get together.

Cindy and I had a great time relaxing in the beginning of the week, shopping, getting our nails done and doing "girl stuff". It's always fun hanging out with my big sister when she's in town!
Later on in the week, my Uncle Dick arrived from Wisconsin for a visit and also Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch arrived for her workshop at the store.
Here's Uncle Dick out at the farm

It was especially crazy juggling work and fun for the next four or five days, but it was FABULOUS! I tend to mix business and pleasure quite a bit, as I spend so much time at work, but I'm doing what I love, so it's all good! It was great having Trish in town for the encaustic class.

Here's Trish signing books:
Oh boy, she was teaching some fun new techniques...my addiction continues! Now I just need to find a way to incorporate all my art techniques and loves together. Quite the challenge, but again, life is very very good to me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
We also celebrated Jaime's third birthday. She's so adorable...
Here she is with her mom, Amber
Well folks, that's it for now. I've been doing laundry all morning so I can justify spending the rest of the day in the studio! Yipee. Oh, and the deck is almost done, so I'll post more photos soon.
Peace out..
