A while ago I won a drawing given by the talented Kathy Botsford. Just before Christmas I received my package and I just have to share a picture of the wonderful loot that I received. A beautiful necklace. I love the medallion and the clasp is to die for. The note cards are also wonderful so full of depth. Thank you Kathy.

We decided to try something like an Alisa Burke technique. We all had our own ideas of what that meant to us so there was quite a variety. The important part was to free ourselves up and just paint.

I love the larkspur.
I love my miniature roses.
I am about halfway through my Photoshop class. It is much harder than I expected but I am learning a lot. We will see if it pays off as time goes bye. I also cashed in my Christmas gift certificate and got a Bamboo pad and pen. I am excited about using it.
I have started two classes on Artists for the Round Table. One based on the book Create Your Own Hand Printed Cloth by Rayna Gillman and the other based on the book The Decorated Page by Gwen Diehn. I am enjoying both of these workshops.
These are some of the beginning pages of my new journal.
I am wrapping up a class on Altered Books (AB101) given generously by Elizabeth of the Altered Book Lover blog. I learned a lot in this class which has made starting The Painted Page workshop so much easier. Thanks Elizabeth!

One good thing is that my friend, Ella, took my gears to clean and rust so that she could use them. Thank you Ella! I do not anticipate that I will be working with them for at least a month.
I have taken over a thousand photos in the last ten days. One day at the Bio Park here in Albuquerque. I spent that wonderful day with my daughter Lisa just browsing and doing macro photography. A walk in the neighborhood with an artist friend gave me more. And then a day at Fiber Arts Fiesta gave me lots of inspiration and targets for my camera.
