Change in Plans

A last minute change in plans for this weekend. Tyn's class has been rescheduled (info to come) so I will be setting up a table and hanging out at a great neighborhood sale in Sherman Oaks!

Here are the details:

Garage Sale Extravaganza

When: June 23, 2007

Time: 7:00 am - 12:00 pm

Where: Chandler Estates Area (Between Hazeltine Ave., Woodman Ave., Burbank Blvd., and Chandler Blvd.) including the following streets Cumpston St., Albers St. Murietta St., Colbath Ave., Costello Ave., Ranchito Ave., Cantaloupe Ave., Matilija Ave., and Mammoth Ave.

Go to 13900 Albers St, Sherman Oaks, for maps of houses participating in the Garage Sale Extravaganza.

I will be at a home on the corner of Albers and Ranchito, just across the street from where the maps will be handed out. This is a very lovely neighborhood full of big lavish estates and I am sure not to miss sale items! If you enjoy going to Garage sales, this is not to be missed!

On Tuesday I took a drive out to Eagle Rock to meet Kelly Witmer, owner of the awesome shop Regeneration! Everything in Regeneration is made from recycled and re-purposed materials, and it was all gorgeous!

While I am excited to say that Kelly is now carrying my work, that is only the precursor to a show that I will be doing at the shop in August! More info to come once I have figured out the theme for the show, but I am so excited and couldn't wait to share!

How are your health habits?

Just a quick pop in today as I am busy working on commissions and putting together my swag bag goodies for the Felt Club next month!

You have to check out this hysterical report card from the early 1920's. Do you breath properly? Man, I would have failed half of this stuff, but it still would have been easier than Algebra! LOL

Back tomorrow with new show news! Happy Wednesday!

Just for starters: Mini-Quilt Class with Tyn
Last week I was left the following comment on this blog about finding craft classes in L.A.:

Hi Michelle,
I just discovered your . . . I was wondering if you had any advice for people like me, interested in collage and mixed media, but I don't know where to learn new techniques. I always make my own little cards for friends but I'd love to try new stuff and make bigger pieces. Any suggestions? I live in LA too. Thanks! Simone

I have been inspired by Simone and know that it can be really hard to find places in your surrounding communities to take classes. I am putting out a call on Creative Swoon to anyone who has a favorite spot to take a class, or if you own a shop and offer classes, please let me know. This is not just limited to LA. I will post on Creative Swoon about anywhere in the US!

To get things started I want to share that this weekend (6/23) I will be taking my dear friend Tyn's Mini quilt class at Creative Courage. This is a no-sew project and I have so loved the ones Tyn has made! I cant wait to learn learn learn! We would love to have you come and join us and spend a crafty afternoon!!!
