After a grand and exhausting time teaching at Art and Soul, I'm home again...or I was. Now I'm back in Portland with the grandkids.
My classes were all packed, and the only way I pulled it off was with the help of my volunteer assistants who were amazing! I love wonderful, resourceful women, and these gals were. They saw what needed done and didn't ask, but just did. Thanks to each of you if you are reading this.
Roomie Jennifer got me a present...an awesome present...a white chicken (or perhaps turkey) foot. She knows me so well!
Then on Saturday, vendor night, one of my students who, earlier in the day had asked directions to the Goodwill bins, came up with a gift for me. She was so hopeful that I would like it, and of course, I did! It was a broken old German cuckoo clock with all the beautiful gears, the pendulum, the bellows that make the cuckoo sound...oh my. It is awesome!
Now two more workshops next week, then hopefully a little down time. Thanks to all my wonderful students at Art and Soul for a great time!
