(Almost) Spring Cleaning

Getting ready to shut down my computer and really dig into some (almost) spring cleaning. I also have to finish unpacking all my art supplies from my Michael deMeng workshop! So lots to do and I can sit and noodle on the internet all day long.
Wish me luck!

It has been a while since I blogged!

I treated myself to a trip to New Orleans for my birthday this year. Michael DeMeng was the instructor, and it was a great workshop. I arrived on Wednesday and left on Sunday and created an apothecary box titled: Queen of the Mardi Gras Remedy box.

Below are some of the boxes completed from the workshop.

My box is the middle box in the photo below and Juliana Coles' box is to the left.

This is my completed box.

Here are some of my bottles in pre-production.

Juliana Coles after a long day of sanding and drilling!

Michael DeMeng gives a great class and I am so happy that I treated myself to this splurge!
For more pictures see the Valley Ridge website. If you get a chance to take one of his classes, be sure to take it.

6.5 inches and a 3' snow drift.

These are the nice pictures. Not the one of the 3' snowdrift that I had to shovel out of the way so I could back out of my garage this morning.
This afternoon when I got home I had to finish the job and it was only 3 degrees! My fingers were frozen!
This is not what I live in the sunny southwest for!
