A few things

Here is what my computer currently looks like. I love it, but hate being so dependent on it. I am told it is not as bad as it looks and should have it back soon. I borrowed one so that I could post a few things. I'll make it quick.

This is the only picture I took at last weekend's sale. Time got away from me and I didn't get a chance to take more. It was a great success. Lots of work, but we raised a lot of money for the school.

Tomorrow I will be spending the day with Amanda from Bread and Badger on 28th and Alberta.
If you are in the area, come say "hi".
I'm hoping to be back online next week, but in the meantime wanted to link to another show that I am happily a part of this month. I have a few marble balls and mosaics in the Sustainable Art Exhibit at the Onda Gallery in Lake Oswego. When I have more time online, I'll post a few pics. Until then have a great weekend!

Many months ago I posted this broken birdbath determined to finish it quickly, and post pics along the way. Time got away from me, and it has obviously not been the quick project I originally planned.
After my studio/room switch around, this project moved way up on the priority list. In the basement I had lots of workspace, and having a huge concrete birdbath sitting on a table was not such a big deal. My new room is a different story. I love the space, but it is lacking in flat work surfaces. I still have a ways to go, but since I've been spending nearly every waking moment getting ready for the art sale at the boy's school this weekend, it has been nice to be able to add a few pieces at a time. I have a new found respect for anyone who organizes art/craft shows on a regular basis. It is a lot of work! Thankfully this time next week I should have lots of time to finally check this off my list. I'll be back here soon with details about this weekend's sale for any Portlanders. Have a great Monday everyone!
