The Claw

I am busy this week getting everything planned for Felt Club! I cant wait to get there, but there is a lot to do in the next 2 weeks. I just finished packaging all of the badges, and should finish the magnets today. I was working on them last night and my hand is stuck in the shape of a claw! I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't straighten my fingers! Yikes! You got to suffer for your craft I suppose!

I am working hard to produce a good variety of work to offer at the Felt Club. As I have mentioned, it is my first Craft Fair and I am looking forward to getting out there, meeting people and participating in such a cool event.I got a fresh shipment yesterday of my 6"x8" canvases. I have been planning lots of fun pieces. I cant wait to get crackin' on those! There are lots of other fun things coming in the next couple of weeks. I can't wait to share them all with you!!!

SPC: Self portrait as Girlfriends

This weeks SPC photo is from the Luau party. These are my super talented girlfriends. I could think of no one better to spend a heat wave with! They are both so creative in totally different mediums. Their discipline and drive inspires me! They are also very batty, and lots of funs in the heat! Thank you girls for all your help on Saturday night! I laughed 'till I cried!

I don't know what to say. Over the weekend we hosted a Luau themed party for a friends 30th birthday and we had a blast! So much fun!! We spent all day Saturday preparing, skewering, tidying, and SWEATING! Why? Because on this very special occasion the temp. reached 119 degrees here in West Hills, CA. 119 with humidity. Yeah. Party!

WHAT??? I can't even believe that this is possible! When I think about how from the moment I woke up, until 2:30 am, I didn't cool off for a second long enough to even need to put moisturizer on my face(!!!) after a shower or a swim, I am beside myself. For the 50% of invitees who were brave enough to come to the Valley and bare the unruley heat and humidity, the saving grace was the frosted drink machine that was rented to constantly churn out slushy Chi Chi's and Hurricanes. Genius idea on the birthday girls part! Just good thinkin'! When the Flick'r batch is posted, I will link to it. I am sure the pictures are just hilarious!

So now, my good friend is 30, and in almost exactly 6 months, I will be too. I have a lot of work to do before then! I want to have curbed a few bad habits and silly issues. Enter the next decade a little lighter, in a lot of ways. Lots to do. Lots to do. . . . Once the heat takes a break. Too hot to deal now! Better to sit very still and only move my fingers to type!
