I VOTED AND TOOK A GREAT CLASS

Sunday was a wonderful day.  Our guild was able to take a class with Sarah Shriver.  My BFF's and I were all together all day Sunday learning and having an incredible day.  Sarah is an amazing teacher.  Her color mixing methods make doing clay and making Skinner blends a whole new experience to an old clayer I mean an experienced clayer. LOL



This is Sarah showing us different methods of setting up Skinner blends for our canes.

This is one of the canes from the class but I don't recognize the fingers so I don't know who it belongs to.
These are Natasha beads I made with the end pieces of my cane.  I was so excited.  The one on the right looks like a cat with wings and little shoes.  Everything I look at has a cat in somewhere.  LOL

If I ever get some pieces finished pieces, I'll post them.

Wanted to thank Jodie for setting up the classes and all the hard work she put into organizing them and I wanted thank Carolyn for letting us use her shop for our class.  It was the perfect place for a class.  AND, I want to thank Sarah for sharing such wonderful information with us.

Sarah has a DVD that shows her techniques with color, canes and blends called Intricate Kaleidoscope Canes and it will give you an insight to her incredible canes.


I VOTED TODAY
 
 
Walked over to vote this morning.  It was a beautiful morning till I got in the room to vote.  There were about 10 people working in there and the smell of perfume and after shave were so strong my head plugged up and I could hardly breathe which made it hard to want to stay there.  Do people think wearing perfume makes them better looking? 
 
Why doesn't someone invent a perfume that smells like CHOCOLATE OR POPCORN?

It was so much fun!! I finally finished one of my beads...will post in a day or so. I came back with so many ideas, now if I can follow through (that would be good)! That cane was Idelle's cane. I think she has a metal ruler. Buster is a cutie as usual! Thank goodness, I mailed my ballot in, so much easier for me, since I take care of my father-in-law. Weather has been gorgeous to walk...been walking to my gym in the mornings.

Bonnie, your Natasha beads are beautiful. Yes, I see the cat with the wings. It looks like he's the base of a totem pole.

That project is beautiful. How I wish I can make something like that. I will need a lot of creativity in my hands.
