Sea Glass....ATC's....and a picture of the birthday boy!

What a busy time I've had this week....yesterday - after a day spent making art - I went out last night to a little Gift/Wine shop in Yarmouth that was having a Wine Tasting with two friends. I wasn't really sure what we were going to see, but I was happy to go and have some Sushi after. I knew it had something to do with sea glass, so I was happy for the adventure. My husband and I collect sea glass, and we have 5 gallon BUCKETS full.

When we got there I was happy to meet C.S. Lambert and see her new book "A Passion for Sea Glass". She was very captivating and a fun woman to chat with. I had to came home with her lovely book, because when we built our house I had plans to make an ocean wave collage in the master bathroom. As I was flipping through the book I noticed (on pages 11 and 12) that a lovely artist named Kathie Krause did the same thing, it's like she read my mind. She took what I had been thinking of and put it on her bathroom wall...either that or I read her mind. Doesn't matter, the book is beautiful and if you have a passion for sea glass you should check it out. I can't wait for next month as she (C.S. Lambert) is going to have a talk and I plan on showing her my special piece of sea glass. The one that has the melted gold in it! Maybe it's that Spanish coin that I always have dreamed of finding :-)

Moving on...have been working on some trading cards to send out to a few friends and a trade or two. These pictures don't really do them justice, but I couldn't wait until day time to take the photos. I wanted to get them in the mail as soon as possible.

We went on a bowling party Little V's 9th birthday and thought I would share a picture of him with his good friend from school. They were doing some funny dance!! We had an awesome time!

Ta Ta For Now...we're getting a huge rain storm. I think I will sequester myself in my studio and use up some of the Martha Stewart products that EK Success sent me last week!
