Travels from the Lone Star State

Mark and I attended the Adorn Me Convention in Houston this past week.  It was great reconnecting with teachers from the past like Keith Lo Bue, Richard and Jane Salley, Sabra Sowell Lovejoy, Janice Berkebile, Susan Lenart Kazmer and her sister Cheri who is now working with her teaching glass castings.    I have also been in Texas enough the last couple of years that I'm making lots of friends with some fun gals and gents.  The classes were great and I learned a lot about glasswork, enameling, metal forming, soldering, tools and so much more.

We left Houston early Saturday morning and headed for Plano for Stamp Asylum where we taught 30 hours of classes in 3 days.  I ended off last evening with hardly a voice and definitely a bit road weary, but we had a late dinner with Monica and Melody that was a treat.  We heard all about their travels and plans and plotted to get together along the way the year.  Melody does great Copic work and we're working on lining up a time for her to come teach at Mrs. O'Leary's.

Again the day finds us in the truck heading down the road, but this time we're heading home.  It will be only for a 1 day stop over, but it will be nice to pet the puppies and switch out the suitcases.  Thursday morning we head off one more time this month for Santa Fe.  We will be attending the Beadfest show where I will take a couple more classes on enameling and lentil beads.  We will also be shopping the showroom for all the latest in tools, wonderful beads and antiquity tidbits

We made a quick stop in Oklahoma City to visit My Heart's Fancy - a great stamp store.  They just moved into a new beautiful location a couple of months ago.  I talked to Lisa about coming down and teaching some classes later this year.  So if you are in that part of the country, check in with them.
