I printed them out on the Avery business card paper and she was good to go. I really like the way this turned out. I think I may have to make me some! LOL I ended up buying more stuff and my feet are tired from all the walking. One of these days I am going to sit down and create!

I just loved the color! I have been very drawn to ocean colors. Maybe it's because I am going to Art & Soul this October and the theme is by the sea, or maybe it's that I am wishing I was back on that Gullet in the Aegean Sea! I may have to make another trip out to the bead show tomorrow, as I found out that it is multiple hotels and I only hit one of them! We will see.

We did alot of driving around and saw lots of scenery. I so miss the big trees and all the green.I would like to go back again so I could take pictures of all the old houses and such I saw. There is such great architecture there. But...that will have to wait as my traveling schedule is quite full for the next few months! I must go finish laundry so I can pack for my trip to Florida. I leave Friday morning and will be gone until next Wednesday. It's a work conference, so it won't all be play! TTFN

On one of my favorite blogs, Kerri Posson does her monthly “Ta Da” list. A list of creative accomplishments for the month. So here is my “Ta Da” list since the beginning of my journey:
Went to Art & Soul Virginia May 2007. Took classes from Nina Bagley, Sally Jean Alexander, Claudine Hellmuth, Keith Lo Bue, & Pamela Huntington.
Took local classes with Traci Bautista & Richard Salley
Went to Art Nest June 2007 and took classes from Misty Mawn, Sally Jean again and Kristin Steiner.
I joined MMCA, and became more active with ZNE.
I submitted my work for First Friday, a local art event, and I was chosen to have a vendor table there.
I was asked to submit my giveaway for One World One Heart for Artful Blogging and I was chosen to be included in that issue.I submitted my Flowers to Belle Armoire Jewelry and was chosen to be in the Summer 2008 issue.I submitted a piece to Somerset Studio for the Provence Theme issue. I don’t know if I was picked yet, but at least I submitted. I joined an altered Chess Set challenge.
I signed up for a class in June with DJ Pettitt and Deryn Mentock. Very excited about that!
I applied to be a vendor at Art Unraveled in August 2008, and was accepted. I also signed up for classes with Leighanna Light and Louise Duhamel.
I applied to be a vendor at the ZNE ConvenZioNE in August 2008 and was accepted. I also submitted my work to be in their gallery show. I am going to try and get Lisa Kaus’s class. 2 more days till I know about that one.
I signed up for Portland Art & Soul 2008. I am taking classes from Nina Bagley, DJ Pettitt, Beryl Taylor and Judy Wilkenfeld.
Phew...that was longer than I thought! I don't think I forgot anything. So along the way, I have learned many lessons, made new friends thru blogs and have had fun. I am looking forward to the future and all it brings with it's ups and downs. I would tell any one to follow your dreams. You never know unless you try...
