Wow, two posts in one day!

Albuquerque Lavendar Festival

Albuquerque has a yearly Lavendar Festival and we attended again this year. Looking forward to the Lotus Pond at Los Poblanos, we planned an afternoon on sketching, relaxing and good vibes, but the pond was closed! Bummer. We wandered for a few minutes, but then left. Maybe next year. I did get a few good pics, but we did not stay long enough to get much. BTW, there were lots of other events at different locations, but we were looking forward to the Lotus pond!

Awful work week

But I did get some work done, artwise. I am taking a class from SARK, titled Dream Boogie and this is my doodles while waiting  for the audio class to start.

The line across the top (a large sketchpad which would not fit on my flatbed scanner) is part of a journal entry, about self sabotage. The line visible here reads SABOTAGE has always been one of my issues. There are several sketches, and the colored entry is a list of what is holding me back from completing my dream, then colored over with markers. Most of mine were about MONEY. The BRAVE FINDER is an intuitive name SARK gives you when you sign up for the class.
Also anticipating Juliana Coles' new summer session of Extreme Journaling

Forgot to add that I also purchased some things in Madrid!

I am practicing with my macro setting on my camera in order to get better closeups of my art to post on etsy. I bought a tri-color copper bracelet and some labryinth earrings! So I did more than just look at art. Buying jewelry always cheers me up!

Sunday Afternoon trip to Madrid

I promised a friend of mine from the Rustdyeing group on Yahoo that I would take pictures of her art hanging at Johnson's in Madrid. Sunday afternoon, after the lunch bunch had brunch, I took off to Madrid. Her art was amazing. I love Madrid so I walked around and checked out the galleries. Saw art by a lot of people that I know and found an old friend that I had not seen in several years. Adelle had some great art in a gallery, and we discussed web sites, art and galleries. I am always on the lookout for possible customers for my business the Computer Creatrix.

It is VERY WARM here!

I promised that I would not complain about it being hot, as this winter hung on for so long and was so cold and nasty! So all that I am going to say is that it is VERY WARM! And I would much rather be hot than cold! It was only 95 today, rather than the 100 that it was over the weekend.
I made it through my first day back at work after a week's vacation but I was bushed last night, I was in bed by 8:45 and then woke up at 4:30. Luckily I could go back to sleep! It was a much better day today, and I am not so tired.

Once a month is not enough to blog!

June is when I am going to become a better blogger!
This week has been fabulous, I have been on vacation. Went to the last of the graduations (I had three this year) on Saturday, May 29th, picked up my Mother and we came back to Albuquerque.
Terry and Kassi's black and white wedding Kanji quilt
We have loafed around, visited and ate all week. I have got several projects started and well on the way to completion (Terry and Kassi's wedding quilt, a snugglie for the graduate, and started on several more snugglies). Mother and I finished tyeing the graduation snugglie, and it is ready for presentation.

Fabric giftie from Helen In Hobart Australia, small pieces of fabric.
This has also been a good mail art week for me. I got an emphemera swap from Jennifer in Florida (it really came last week but I did not have time to acknowledge it!), two mail art postcards and a little giftie of fabric from Helen in Hobart Australia via sendsomething.com . I have scanned them all in....
