Day 17

The paper doll frenzy had to be rescheduled due to participant illness but the day was not a loss.  Planning lunch with co-workers for a party and a quick pre-anniversary party trip to Assemblage to help out, then a quick trip home to pick up a few things for the party and back to Assemblage for the festivities.  Teresa and Tyler deserve giant Kudos for the wonderful decorations and delicious snacks. Hours of fun was had by all! I'm attaching pictures to prove it!

The party broke up, we all filtered home for the night and it was time for me to hit my studio.  Tunes jamming on the CD player, gesso and ink flying as did time, the next thing I knew it was 2 1/2 hours later and I had another couple of pages done in my altered book.

After all this excitement today I need to catch a few hours of sleep before what I'm sure is going to be an amazing Piano Hinge Book class at Assemblage Saturday am.  Also don't forget about the 3 pm Altered book class on Tuesday the 19th and a repeat evening class on Thursday the 21st at 7 pm-there are still openings available call Teresa at Assemblage tomorrow to join us for this fun class!
