Wow! What a week it has been. I'm finally finished editing the RubberMoon pics . . . I've certainly edited a lot more in the past but this week, I kept nodding off! Seriously. So before I nod off again, here's some fun art for you to enjoy.

My week of RubberMoon wonderfulness started on Tuesday of last week. I've been a member of RubberMoon's Moon Mail Club and while Kristen was up here, she met with us "Moonies" from the greater Puget Sound area. We had a very nice potluck dinner and shared a project led by Kristen.

If you're not a Moonie yet, you might consider joining the RubberMoon Moon Mail Club.

Then Kristen boogied on down I-5, southbound, to stay with Dianne and teach at Art 'n Soul. In each of the 4 classes, we learned so much. Kristen shared fabulous tips and techniques that caught everyone's enthusiastic attention.

The first class brought new 'shrines' to make matching up stamps, chipboard die-cuts frames and shapes, and acrylic paints. For the framed pic, most everyone used Frida clip art that Kristen provided.

*Susie did go home to continue working
on her shrine, and bling'd it up. Susie is
supposed to send me a photo that I can
share with all of you!

These are the shrine samples that Kristen had made, and we're so glad she shared them with us. You, too, will 'get the bug' because these little shrines will make the most wonderful keepsake gift.

Tomorrow, I'll share the works from the classes on Saturday and Sunday.

With everyone's love for birds and clouds, you're going to like this very "clean and simple" card design from JJ on the PoppyStamps' blog.

This Saturday and Sunday is another HUMONGOUS Recycled Rubber sale at Art 'n Soul. There is soooooo much recycled treasures stored in back that we can hardly move around; it's stacked on the left wall and it's stacked on the right side. Thank goodness we have the wonderful volunteer assistance of Laurel Martin to help with it all. Be sure you're there at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday . . . I've peeked into a few of the boxes and you're not going to want that 'treasure' going to anyone else but you!

See you soon! Thank you for all of your indulgence and patience in awaiting a blog post this week . . . it's really appreciated.
