taught 3 more classes - took one too!
I have made it through teaching 5 classes in the last three days. Yesterday I taught the first day of Beyond the Unexpected and then Poppet® Puppets (evening class). Today I taught the second day of Beyond the Unexpected. Both classes went wonderfully and everyone made such amazing things!

Then tonight I took a Family Portrait class from Carla Sonheim. I just love her work -- so fun and sweet. And she is the greatest gal! I couldn't wait to spend time in her space and energy even if I was exhausted. At first I thought I would only go for the first hour or so because I was so tired, but I ended up staying the whole class AND making this family portrait of Paul and I + Toby, Mabel and Stan too! I had a great time experimenting and trying something totally different for a change. It was just the tonic I needed after teaching so much.

Tomorrow I'll be doing an interview with Karen Landy for Indie Arts magazine, then I'll get ready for the Art and Soul vendor night from 6-10pm. If you're in the area come on by! It's open to the public!

PS I also downloaded Project Runway to iTunes, I hope to get to watch it tomorrow!

Your family portrait is wonderful ! I love how cute you made Toby, and that you made Mabel bigger than Stan. You and Paul look so happy. Super Sweet. Thanks for the introduction to Carla and her work. I love it. I wish I didn't have all the dogs to take care of and been able to come down to Portland to take your class and lots of others ! Your family portrait is very inspirational
