While I am in Chicago I figured I would leave you with a shopping list of some of my favorite books, supplies and music.
Emily Wells The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties
I love listening to music as I create. I like folk, singer songwriter and a bit of funky sumpthin'. This album is all that. It is easy to listen to and super smart, this young lady is a talent to watch.
Laura Marling I Speak Because I Can
Another bright and intelligent female musician? Yup. Gorgeous songs, well written lyrics. She is coming to Brooklyn, but is all sold out. Darn!
Johnny Flynn A Larum
This album is a perfect spring listen! This is bubble gum for the ears. I love it.
Little Bee: A Novel
I am reading this right now and am in love. LOVE with the style, cadence, and story. I love to read, I don't talk about it much but. There you have it. If you too are a reader, freind me through Good Reads, I will keep up with your list.
Who knew Amazon had soy wax?
Natural Soy 444 Wax: 10 pound bag
And while I am at it? Joggles will be hosting a couple more classes of mine! It is always a good time to promote my own stuff! Barb loved the Mark Making class I offered and is going to offer it again, if you want to learn to dye your own embroidery thread? This is the class for you! Don't think about potato chips.
I will also be giving a class called, "Let's Exchange some Art: Stencils, Stamps and Grounds!"
I will be teaching some of my stamping skillz, while working through layering techniques to create pretty works on paper.
We will make ATC's, Tags and MAIL ART. We will use the postal system as a gallery and send fancy mail to one another! I love the word fancy.
Please sign up and play with me! I am posting this a bit early but you can just email Barb at Joggles and tell her you are interested.... I think the official posting will occur on Monday the 19th.
Now I have to go pack... I am doing anything not to pack! I want to go to Chicago. I want to teach, I just wish I could beam myself up and over.
