I sold a little bit and met a lot of very nice people. All in all, it was a great time. We met so many nice people and networked with several savy artists and shop owners. One lady even invited Renea to teach some art technique workshops at her mixed media store. I can't wait to do something like this again.

Do you need some funky in your life? Well, here it is sistah! I did this the other night with my prisma color pencils and some markers. I have a little plate that a friend gave me with a very similiar design. This is somewhat digitally altered on Flickr. If you have followed me for any amount of time, you know I can't resist a good digital altering. I think it came out pretty funky/cool.
It has been a crazy weekend already. Cody is coming home on Saturday the 25th of April. Guess what else is happening that day? ....The funky finds in Fort Worth. So, I won't be here when Cody comes home. But, I will be here Sunday. I'm going crazy trying to get everything ready for the Funky Finds. I'm very excited. I am just glad to get to spend time with Renea and Lisa. It would be nice to sell some things too so I can add to my secret (shhhh don't tell my husband who never reads my blog) fund for our 25th anniversary trip to Seattle. He knows we are planning to go, he just does not know I have been saving secretly for it. So, keep it quiet o.k.? It is going to be so much fun to present him with our travel package. I have never done anything like this before. He deserves it, for putting up with me for 25 years. I deserve it. We deserve a special trip don't you think?

I spotted this car in Midland,Texas a few weeks ago and I laughed when I saw it. I could not wait to tell my husband about it. I told him it looked like a green station-wagon on big wheels. I saw it again today and took this pic. Notice how they have it parked away from other vehicles so it won't get door dings!
After some thought, I decided it really is not all that funny anymore. I applaud the person that came up with this vehicle. This is totally evidence of creative thinking. I love it. BRAVO to this person whomever it is. Who would have ever thought to put a station-wagon on this type of wheels and to paint it green? I love people who are not afraid to be different. 5 Stars for courage. Now if it just had a little step so I could get out of the thing without breaking any body parts! Heehee

This is one of my latest creations. You know how I'm always soldering charms. Well, I had this idea yesterday about using the alcohol inks on glass and then soldering it. This is what I came up with.....a necklace charm and earrings. I love how they look when the light passes through them. I was excited about the results. I will have to try something like this again but I am out of glass slides. Will need to order some more.
