Whew, I know that it has been some time since I wrote a little update on the adventures of Artgirlz! A couple of people let me know that they have been watching!! That is the good news!
We worked until we went out the door to head to the airport for our trip to California and the Craft and Hobby Show...we had a little time before the show to get the booth up and organized and our class kits together! We were in Anahiem...Disney territory...palm trees and a strawberry field and fruit stand right across the street from our lovely hotel. We enjoyed fresh fruit, excellent Mexican food right down the street!!
Once the show started, it was nonstop talking, explaining, make it and taking it, showing, laughing, meeting new people, seeing friends and supporters, wheeling and dealing, teaching, drinking coffee, cleaning up areas, and making messes...It was a very good show for us and we have so much work to do, it is hard to take it all in. I am practicing staying in the moment and trusting that we will handle all of the goodies heading our way! We are grateful for all of the folks that took the time to come by!
After the show we headed to Laguna Beach for a couple of days to rest and relax...well, kind of...On the way we stopped to check out The ARTBar...in Santa Ana...many people had mentioned it to us at the show. It was a great source of interesting art "stuff", and a beautiful studio space that can be used to make wonderful things from their great stuff....Above is the sun setting behind Catalina on our first night in Laguna taken from the huge front window of our lovely rented beach house. A short walk to the right on the beach would take us right into town.
Now, it is Thursday evening in freezing Rhode Island and we are heading to England (also freezing I understand) next Wednesday evening. Just a few large projects to finish before we get on the plane...off to have some dinner and another Artgirlz regroup meeting! Dreaming of Taco Loco!
