Vox Sacramento and Clayville California Present The Art of Polymer… and the dog days of summer

It is hot and it is humid. Has been for weeks it seems like.

She has never-ending energy and I am zapped in this heat and humidity.

I have a hell of a lot more respect for you people in the Midwest and on the East coast.

The guy at the gym said his electric bill here in San Diego is about 17000$ in August and September, crazy yeah???

I am just too tired to blog at the end of the day.

Well anyway, enough whining.

But I do have something tell you besides “I am hot!!”

I am going to be in a show that Lala Ortiz put together at Vox in Sacramento.

Lala will also be teaching some classes there. She is a wonderful person and make art with the best of them.

My classes at Cabin Fever and a update

I am in Florida visiting my parents. Sorry I haven’t been around lately. I have been having so much fun and I left almost immediately after Cabin Fever Clay Festival, so it was very hard to get a blog in.

Here is what I started before I left.

I miss you all.

Love and huge hugs,

Marie

I must say that I am thrilled with my classes at Cabin Fever. I am tired, but thrilled.

Judging by what my students did, the classes went very well.

These are creative vibrant women and they learned so fast.

These are from the AM class.

The top row second from left is a heart that is antiqued but not finished with Lumiere.

The two hearts in the bottom row on the right side that are neutral are what the hearts look like not having the antiquing or the Lumiere.

The others have been painted and finished all the way.

They did well didn’t they?

Monday Updates on Tuesday!

I have been missing in action pretty much for the last week. I tried to post things that I thought interesting, but there was no person behind the post most of the time. Love that scheduling the posts thing.

I had two classes over the weekend.

 

Last week it was down to the wire and I forget how much time it takes to raise a child, I forget that I am older and do not have quite the unlimited fountain of youth at my back to stay up all hours of the night and keep going for days on end, while taking care of my grand-daughter, cooking food, doing dishes and laundry, I did skip the cleaning though ;-D, feeding the animals, meetings, emails, writing, editing, and planning, and all of the other things that is takes to make sure every one is happy in my classes and happy at home!

Well, I did do most everything I needed to do while going to bed at a decent hour, taking care of family, the blog, taking care of Madi, and everything else my life has become.

All of them are important to me so there was no ignoring them.

Being self-employed is wonderful and I only have to work half day, any twelve hours will do!

A couple of things were not completed or forgotten, but all in all I had a wonderful time at my classes with wonderful people.

The pictures that I have, show them either in deep concentration or laughing and that I figure is a pretty good sign.

I am thanking out loud Kelly and Howard for being an awesome support team and helping when I needed it most.

Thank you so much to all of the people who travelled to take my class. I really enjoyed myself and it is a pleasure to have gotten to know you all a little better.

 

To my Blog Buddies, Thank you for your comments while I was away and I missed you all.

I hope to get around to some of the blogs this week. Hope you all had a great Memorial day here in the U.S.

Have a great week this week. Blessings all over you all.

 

I am listing  the Rodrigo Borgia Switch plate now.

 

 

I am also putting up a new listing of some vintage chain in the Hoarders Closet, this is a small delicate chain that comes in gold and silver and is in 25 meter spools. I have never had this one up there before. This chain will work well with 24 gauge non-tarnish silver and non-tarnish gold artistic wire, the wire will fit in to the little loops too!

Lots of info- saturday catch up!

Well, I think the shock of me putting up a new picture broke blogger ;-D

Thank you so much for your sweet comments, I really appreciate them.

I lost all of the comments on the last post, I think, and most on the one before.

All of the comments I made are gone.

I also have arrows in my tags in the last post instead of commas. Weird.

Did any of you have the same thing happen?

It was strange not to have access to blogger also.

I felt disconnected from you all.

Well, since blogger was down I had to find something else to do ;-D

I am getting ready to teach a 2 day workshop at Quilter’s Paradise on Memorial weekend.

That is where our guild has its classes. A lovely space and a nice place to have our classes.

If you are interested, you can find out here www.SDPCG.org left sidebar, click on classes.

I am working on the supply list right now.

After being sick for so many weeks my brain is moving slowly.

I also get distracted, LOL!! Like now.

Madi and I also colored on friday. She has a very hard time staying on the paper.

We have Giant post it notes and she can attach them all over the house.

I have colored-on walls, drawers, and cupboards, and I am trying to prevent that in the future.

I uploaded some more things in to the Hoarders Closet.

I put up some Sacred Heart molds from original sculpts. They are a set and they are mirrors of each other, and tiny, great for earrings and embellishments. They can also be used for food, chocolate, precious metal clay and of course, polymer clay.

My friend the Woodwife has used them on some of her pieces and the links are on the listing.

Tomorrow is Fave Crafts finished on the 15th Blog hop!

I have a great tutorial for tomorrow. Those of you that are mixed media artists, shrine makers, frame embellishers, and painters are going to love it. At least I think you will. I do.

Tomorrow is also the first day of a going out of business sale by a wonderful stamp on line store, Scroll Works. They have beautiful stamps and they are going to be starting with 40% off all their inventory. They have 50% off sale going right now that is pretty amazing already!

Always remember to click on their links

so you can see the stamps without the frames too!

From the Scroll Works site and you will not believe the price on this stamp.

Check it out http://www.scrollswork.com/

It is a progressive sale and the discount gets bigger and bigger till the 15th of July when the virtual doors close.

It saddens me to see another business bite the dust.

I did more, but I am rambling. so I shall go now.

So, until tomorrow my pretties, I am wishing a glorious weekend with all the magic life can bring you!
