Mining for Silver

I took a wee rest after the frenzy of the Art & Soul auction spend some much needed time reducing,reusing and recycling many of those forgotten spots in my home where bits and pieces manage to find their way into the black hole of house keeping. It has been a great feeling to pass on many items we have outgrown, for what ever reason, and find some breathing room and a sense of order.

I hauled away many loads to the local thrift shop, senior center and passed items on to my offspring and several friends starting new lives. At last I could gather my thoughts and head into my studio, or perhaps I should say one of my studios: my "beads-silver-vintage-fabric-pieces-metal-clay-tools-hammers-wire-tools-buttons-vintage-crystals-bronze-copper-findings-finished-work" studio. As opposed to studio number 2, the "heavy-duty-studio-in-the-garage-for-kilns-chemicals-torches-resin-and-glass" studio, for which I am planning an update soon.

In studio 1 I am sorting and organizing all similar objects together. What a wonderful experience. Not only am I organizing, but I'm also taking a trip down memory lane. I'm finding things purchased and discovering lost items which I was unaware were lost ( which makes them all the sweeter of a find). This is now keeping me from repeatedly buying the same items. Do you do that?

Well at last I reached my stash of metal clay creations, joyfully created in the past 12 years. Wow, I was overwhelmed. As I discovered each piece and gathered them together, all at once they began to babble "Remember me?! Remember you were going to... wouldn't I look cool with...." So that is where I am at the moment getting ready to blast off into my creation mode and add some forgotten dreams to my immediate future.

Thanks to one and all

Happy Valentines Day

Today I had the pleasure of sending off a check to the Lawyers who are handling the Kiss my Fanny Mr Banker Fund.

Our final total was $1276.91.

I would like to send a big flappentine hug to each of you who helped make this happen. Thanks to each artist who created and shipped each beautiful item. Some of you were so generous to send several items.

Then there were the buyers you guys were fantastic. It was very fun to see all those wonderful things go flying out the door and into the boxes to begin their journeys to their new homes. We also had several donations and a private collector come by after the Ebay auctions and pick up a few items.

So dear Glenny Happy Valentines Day from all of us. May this small token give you a glimpse of the many wonderful people who thank you for the wonderful experience of Art & Soul and are cheering you on in this most difficult economic times for all

Watch for me in Portland this September as we have some more Fat Books we will be auctioning off to keep moving forward.

Cheers Peg
