LETTERS CALIFORNIA STYLE! and general craziness

Yes Its been crazy! Ive been to Tulsa-who merit their own posting-thats next-I'm officially working on a book with my friend Pat-the genius graff artist-working title "Tats, Graff and Freestyle Alphabets" I've just returned from Letters California Style in Pomona-I did want to get some pics up of that-I had more of the class work-which was amazing! but somewhere they were lost-
I did also lose my Canon Sureshot coming back from Tulsa and Im super bummed if I have lost all those pics-still looking for the camera!
More info on all that coming soon-but please check out my flickr site at the right to see the artists work that I was lucky enough to watch unfold-and Oh yeah my daughter has returned from India-Crazy? No...way beyond that!

Yep Its Official! We're going to beautiful Italy! Orvieto to be precise ( one of Rick Steves favorite towns!) This is in May-from the 10th to the 17th. I will be teaching an Italian Book of Inspiration-a lovely accordion fabric book. You'll learn how to letter on fabric-even if you're a beginner. We'll combine collage and color and artifacts we discover in this beautiful town! I'm in love with it and I haven't even been there yet! Mornings spent in a lovely classroom-afternoons exploring the city-its vineyards, Etruscan Caves with ancient inscriptions, its cathedral (Il Duomo) eating, shopping! Then we'll return to a convent that has been turned into a lovely B & B for relaxation and rest. Can you join me? I think this will be the trip of a lifetime and fares are great to Italy now! Please link up now and if you've been 'on the fence" maybe this will help you decide! I would love to share this with you ( My daughter's going with me too!) Significant others and family are tended with care by our wonderful hosts, Kristin and Bill Steiner while we're in class. Kristin ( My daughter ) and I are planning to stay a week or two after and go to Rome and other magical places-Please email me if you have any questions about the class-Please check out the website! Link is on the right!

Oh and CHA blogging is coming soon!
