So Much to Share

Edit: There are great photos here of Adriana being interviewed on television and of her book launch party. Having never been to Argentina, I found it fun just to see what they looked like, how they dressed and so on.

Things are simply popping here. I can hardly digest one thing before another presents itself. One that got away from me was Adriana's big book launch the 7th on a television station in Argentina. She doesn't speak english nor I spanish but I surmised that there was going to be a big party involved with live music and lots of publicity. This is her 2nd book and that is my painting on the cover. She has a new blog so if you read spanish you can find out more about her.

Lost of time has passed in the form of new journal pages. Above is one based on my state of mind after two days of teaching at Innerstandings. Calm, peace and fulfillment. Gratitude.

I did some of the lettering on this page as a demo during class. Love to letter all loosey-goosey.

Also a class demo on collage and using scraps for a 2nd collage.

Ahhhh, the promised martini recipe. The perfect holiday tummy warmer.

I made this page one evening with Katie here. Both of us caught up in a whirlpool and unable to move.

Guess who loves to travel? Xalapa has birdwatching, coffee plantations and orchids that give us vanilla and a town that specializes in ice cream. I can do that. Next November - Day of the Dead.

Using some of the stamped paper I demo'ed online and shared with the class. This was another class demonstration.

Maybe I'll just thank Pilar again in every single post. My mornings begin with her sweet love jam.

I'll be teaching in Wisconsin on the 17-18 of October 2008. More news on that as soon as possible. I've never been to Wisconsin and I am excited to the moon about it. If you live in that area you can read about the venue here and here and mark your calendars. I've marked mine!! xoxoxo

Oh Judy! I am so excited! That is the print I got from you at Art Unraveled!! Stop teasing me with Pilar's jam! I can't eat it because of my surgery. I did get a beautiful print from Pilar though!! Pilar put photos of Bear Grills all over my envie, and I think that was a sweet as anything!

I want to play , too.....:-(

These last few workshop posts look like such a wonderful experience.

I could sit here and work alone....but there is so much we all have to share with each other. You seem to do it so well.

Congrats on the beautiful book.

I'll sip a martini for you.

This was a good place to stop this cold morning on my way to school. And it will be a good place to stop again when I get home this afternoon so I can get out the magnifying glass and see what's up on the journal pages. YA YA YA

I was reading the article about you in the pcs-magazine. It's great, you say so many beautiful things in it!

Congratulations on the book cover, it's beautiful - and all the journal pages too. I really like the first one with all the different text, the black ink and the purple that is a bit smudgy, it's beautiful!
