Thanks for your suggestions and comments about my misguided trip to LA. I'll keep the giveaway going one more week in case others want to enter with suggestions and/or insight.
As it stands I am just out of luck. The workshop has been postponed until August. I emailed the workshop planner about the possibility of her deducting the $200 (penalty fee I would be charged to change my plane ticket) from the workshop but she said no she was not able to do that. The thing that really bugs me (besides all of it) is that she specifically emailed me about 5 days after I asked about the workshop and told me I better hurray and register because the spots were flying. Who says that and then says the workshop was cancelled because only 4 people signed up? Never again. I was even more sorry when next I looked at Pam's blog and lusted over her beautiful calendar pages. It just isn't fair.
In other news...
Top picture is all my new felting supplies. I got the books in Seattle at Kino-buy-it-all (Kelly, hope you got there today to buy me it all) and then found I could order the needles and flower molds online so I am set to go.
Next picture above is from my Misty class. I think it turned out well, but it is definitely not my style. (Oh I wish it were my style and my stuff just naturally looked like that. I love Misty's work, but I don't want to do the same as her if it isn't me) It's painted over a face Misty copied for us. It did help me to learn more about painting faces so it was great to practice. The picture below is just a layered background and than I started drawing in my own face. That's as far as I got because my paper was too wet, but I kind of like it. I really enjoyed Misty's class and learning about mixing colors for the faces.
Chloe made homemade cupcakes today and I have to say they were pretty good. That gal has some baking talent. Probably because sugar is her best friend.
It is getting hot out here in South Carolina and the mosquitoes and gnats are out. That's how I know summer is on it's way. Yee-Haw for that.
Hope everyone is doing great and eating cupcakes.
