Saturday morning musings…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 9:48 am

Salutations dear readers.

My week long break from school is almost over. It seems to have gone by so quickly.

The weather here in the “burbs” has been wonderfully spring-like for the past couple of days. Today seems to be no exception. It’s bright and sunny and warming up as I type.

Yesterday I taught a class in boxmaking to a group of 5 really nice ladies. We meet at my friend Pat’s house. Pat has a great big studio space that she kindly offered to host the class in.

Here are a few photos from the day.

The results of the day

I made the little clasps out of Sculpey for my students. They really need to be painted or made in a colored clay.

I need to be better about keeping notes as I had a bunch of other things that I wanted to share with you rattling around in my head the other day but they all seem to have escaped since then. :( Perhaps they’ll come back to me and I’ll post later.

I do have another interview coming up and I have been working on the headband video. I found that my Flip camera does not take adequate close up shots so I have to switch to the MiniDV camcorder and then splice everything together. I want to take my time and produce a nice understandable video so it will be a few more days.

I hope everyone has a great day!
