But.....today Ronna Sarvas Weltman arrives in Albuquerque to teach a weekend workshop that I've been organizing for about six months. I can hardly wait. It is going to be so much fun. Sometimes you just know these things!! Check out her work at www.ronnasarvasweltman.com.
I've recently started participating with ATC swaps and attended an Art Journaling class last week with Regina Portscheller that was so much fun. My brain is so full of things I want to do. I joined an art journal project with Art House and need to work on that so that I can send my journal in to tour U.S. galleries with other journals from all over. How fun is that?
Then I need to get ready to go to Clay Carnival in Las Vegas in early November.
Busy. Busy. Busy. Loving it. Loving it. Loving it. (but heck yes I get tired sometimes!)

Beads of Courage is a program that was founded to help children dealing with serious illness. Beads are given to the children as they go through each medical procedure - like spinal injections, surgery, chemotherapy treatments and dialysis. As they progress through their treatments, they collect beads from their health care providers to use as symbols of their courage.
The program helps children feel more positive about their illness and treatment and leaves them with something they can use to help them talk about during treatment and after recovery.
When a child enters the program, they are given a string with some letter beads that spell out their first name. Then as each child completes another treatment, they are given a beautiful, brightly-colored bead.
I read about Beads of Courage today and want to make some cool beads to send the kids. Will anyone join me? I see that Sarah Shriver participates. GO SARAH!!

Had my knee surgery.....still recovering.
Got a new job.........still learning.
My rose garden bloomed........still pulling weeds.
Lost my wonderful stepdad to pancreatic cancer......still mourning.
The gallery is doing well.......still working on new pieces.
Not doing much housework........still collecting dust (and the collection grows daily).
But I'm still growing....spiritually and artistically. My brain is so full of ideas and things I want to do. Why do I need 8 hours sleep a day. I'd rather be doing things!!
Have you all signed up for www.tut.com yet? Well, do not hesitate. You'll receive "Notes from the Universe" and they will make your day. I attended a workshop entitled "Reclaiming Your Divinity" by Andy Dooley and it was awesome. His brother is Mike Dooley that writes the notes.
Anyway, it's late, so stay tuned and I'll write more soon. I'm always on a path of discovery, and I'm happy to share in my travels.
