Last weekend I picked up a copy of 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse by Garth Johnson.

I was super excited to see that both, my spoon mirror and my marble 8 ball were included.

It was really cool to see the projects from lots of other Portlanders, and especially fellow Trillium Artisans.

Speaking of Trillium Artisans....this Saturday from 11:00am - 4:00pm is the annual holiday sale at the store (9119 SE Foster) as well as Trillium's 10th anniversary. If you are in Portland check it out for some great holiday deals, 20% off everything in the store.

Our house has been taken down with the flu, and recovery has been slow. Not the best timing, but gladly we are all on the mend.
These pictures are of a few mirrors I made for the upcoming holiday shows using Italian smalti glass. I bought the glass at SCRAP a couple years ago, and put it away. I was a bit intimidated by it, but now am hooked. I love it, and love these mirrors. My favorite one sold before I got a good picture.

The holiday show season officially starts for me this weekend. If you are in Portland and looking to start your holiday shopping, be sure to check these out.

Now through Dec 23rd "Little Treasures" at the Sidestreet Gallery.

and lastly in Olympia, Friday the grand opening of Matter.
Have a lovely weekend everyone, I am off to think healthy thoughts.

I had the chance to take the boys on an last minute trip to Washington DC last week, and I jumped at it. We had a great time, and had our fill of museums. The weather was perfect for sight seeing, and walking everywhere.
It was great to get away, but now I am in serious catch up mode. As soon as I tackle the laundary and finish unpacking, I'll be back with some actual craftiness to share.

I took an encaustic painting class this week. For fun, and it was, lots. I also taught my last mosaic class at the DIY lounge. I'm sad to see the classes end, but looking forward to seeing the new direction Jen takes it. I've been working on an email list for future classes. I'm debating on trying to teach them at my home studio, which is pretty small, or looking to find a new space. If you are someone who has emailed me before about classes and never got a chance to take one, or are just interested in mosaic classes, send me another email, and I'll add you to my mailing list.
