Oh Marie Marie where shall we go?

Marie A. ----It's time to FLY!!! On an airplane that PHOENIX that is for Art Unraveled (click here) (AU is what the veterans call it). I hope she will like it in my carry on bag. It will be dark in there, but I think she is use to that by now. Oh My - did I just say that. She was such a joy to make tonight. Now on to make some more. WHO needs sleep? Not me.....I'm a soldering machine. That's what happens when you sleep in to 11 am. You can't go to sleep at night. DUH!!! This is a fabulous image from Land of Enchantment on Etsy. She has wonderful images and is allowing me to bring some for my students to play with at AU. Thanks girlfriend!!! Hope I did her justice. I got kinda carried away with the wire embellishments! HA!

It's MY BIRTHDAY - AGAIN......where did the year go?

Below is the center of the card that POPS open - isn't she fabulous.

I can't believe it has been a year. A whole year. Where did the time go. IT FLEW BY. BUT.....I can always count on my friends to help me through these birthdays that I hate so much. But thanks to my many friends on facebook wishing me happy birthday to my best friend and family calling and singing to me on the phone to getting beautiful ART from my great friend Ms. Gaye. IT IS a wonderful card/book (above) - all about little ole me. It is made of her paste papers and she is the QUEEN of stamping. She is so clever and the best book/card maker I have ever known. Tomorrow night.....drum roll please...... CAKE!!!!!!

Thursday, July 1, 2010 month from now I will be in Arizona. I am excited and nervous. I'm not happy with planes. Soooo......I will just have to pay attention to my daughters, my sister, my mom and my niece. That will be enough of a distraction don't you think? They are all going with me and we are all looking forward to this trip. Not only about me teaching but also about the festivities. Fa la la la laaaa la la la la. It's also about me being with my sister and niece that I haven't seen in two years. SEEMS like forever. After I teach early in the week we are taking a class on Friday called Glass Journal. Totally psyched about that one.
To see more about Art Unraveled - click here! Also the shopping extravaganza on Saturday - WOW - I am so stoked about that too. Now the decision comes do I mail all my supplies or take them on the plane. Nervous about that one too. Since there are so many of us going we will have plenty of suitcases cuz Southwest lets you have 2 - yes 2 at no charge. Another good thing - it is a STRAIGHT FLIGHT. So there won't be the chance of them losing them - just need to make sure we get there early enough so the luggage gets on the plane. Ya know. Do I sound NERRRRVVVVOOOOUUUUSSSSS - well yes I am. I think I need a drink. HA!
