Wouldn't this be the best for ArtFiberFest?

I have been thinking of an art car idea but if I start knitting now my newbeetle could have one of these by next year!

I am loving this long weekend. The weather has been great for getting stuff done. I spent most of the day yesterday work on my computer. I am having a problem with my Adobe Elements program. It won't open. Sooooo frustrating! So I thought I would just go ahead and get the latest edition.....It is not available anywhere around here for a Mac. I have been trying to make due with iPhoto and Appleworks....

I will leave you with a little eye-candy.....

This is the shop I want to visit on my way to WA. It is Ella Posy in Portland.

My Amaryllis is blooming

It has not bloomed in 3 years and I have nearly killed it so may times.

These 2 birds are admiring it.

I am going to Art FiberFest

I am so excited. I get to go to Art FiberFest in June. I am busy making things to sell and take for trades etc. I also am working on some bag ideas for Dinosaur caves. We are going into a long weekend and then June will get busy. I am going to be an inspector on the election board. My first time and I have a precinct that is alone at the location with people I do not know except I talked Earl into joining. YIKES

Latest self portrait

When Frida and I used to hang out.

A quiet spot by the elephant

More LA Zoo art crawl

This really was fun and you can see I am really rusty at this.

Where did that month go...

..ah yes I know... we moved half of what we own all around. Jill has moved into the green we call it...which means relocating the computer and also making room in the studio for her. She has as many art supplies as I do ...almost. In the middle of packing everything up...hers and mine... I had to get ready for another round at Dinosaur Caves Art in the Park

and celebrate Susan's birthday with a fun trip to Farmer's Market in LA. Last time I was there was when we took LE to the Ice Capades in I think 1973. We got to see Susan's brand new granddaughter, Paige.

She is so sweet.

We finished off the day with an explosion of food at the Cheesecake Factory in Sherman Oaks.

Last week I had a fun play day at Penny's amazing house before our ATC get together. I love those ATC's! Sat. Jill and I met up with my buddy from Opie and Linda's Pto. Vallarta class and headed for the LA Zoo for a sketch crawl. My first. So many talented artists. Such a fun day.

We stopped off at the Black Angus in Topanga for steaks on the way back.

Mother's day we did one of my favorite in the garden. Earl was my "mule" for the day and did my "bidding". Which means we pulled weeds and found our box turtle, Skipper Dee, survived the winter again and cleaned up his domain.
