Shadowbox-Titled: "Bad Numbers"
Did my title of this post get your attention? Hmmm... I hope so.
What a week. Lots to do- non stop.I will get some sleep one of these days.
I got one of those coughs from having the cold AC on you all night. Right in your chest. You wake up with a cat in your throat. You know.... Anyway- not feeling my best. I need an energy booster. My immune system is crumbling this week- bad food, stress, and not enough sleep. But what is keeping me going is good classes, art events, and good friends.
So here is the look at the studio this morning. A huge tornado hit!
The "Jack and Cat Curio" will become a roadshow tonight. We will have an art booth at First Friday tonight in Downtown Phoenix. We will be in the courtyard of the Red Dog Art Gallery! If you have never been to the First Friday event- I highly encourage you to check it out. You will be floored and amazed. One of the biggest art gatherings in the nation. But then Phoenix is the fifth largest city in the nation. I expect no less.
"The event kicks off around 6:00pm and continues until around 11:00pm. Lots of street parking. Or if you go to Burton Barr Library- you can take the shuttle to all the events and galleries! Hope to see all those that can make it!
Here is a pic of a few of the goodies we will be selling at the booth- Beeswax Collage, mini Shadow boxes, jewelery, and more.
Then tomorrow afternoon at 3:00pm at Mystic Paper- I will be teaching the "Intro to Blogging". If you have ever wanted to start your own blog or want to enhance your current blog this will be the perfect class for you. Artistic voice, blogging styles, narrative, blogging etiquette, and safety. Yes folks- I said safety! All will be covered. I will send you home with some homework. Then we will set another time to meet for a one on one session to build your blog in your style. This is a fun class. Blogging is taking over folks.
Then on Sunday I have another class at Mystic Paper! I will be teaching another Beeswax technique class. This class we will explore fabrics and beeswax. We will use assorted images and paper, fabric, and stencils to tell a visual story. All supplies will be provided. Everyone will leave with a personal 10 X 10 canvas covered beeswax masterpiece ready to hang!
So now the last part. The "Skeleton" giveaway. So I have decided to attempt to do a give away every week. This will be the first!
Since Halloween is around the corner-
I decided to put together a skeleton pack!
This pack includes:
Two plastic skulls
1 pair of skeleton hands
3 Collage sheets
3 large adhesive transparency with skulls
Several skull beads- plastic and bone.
All you need to do is leave a comment. Any kind of comment! Then I will put all your names in a hat and I will have the "Cat" pull a name out. If it is your name- then you win the pack. If you happen to win- I will mail the package to you/ or drop it off at my favorite store "Mystic Paper". (For those that live out of country- like "Lisa in Spain"-I will gladly mail it to you as well!) Just post a comment here on this post - comments close at 12:00 midnight on Sunday PST and the winner will be posted on Monday morning! Happy Friday All! Talk soon!
