Cinco de Mayo.
I am celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Redondo Beach, California, with my friend Donna at The Mandrel.  She owns this wonderful Flameworking studio and supply company, and is hosting my workshop...  Surface Painted Beads... "Dia de los Muertos" style.    Yes, I know Day of the Dead has nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo, but we thought it might just be fun!!  I never need an excuse to make skullies, and making them with a bunch of people over the weekend of May 5 and 6 ... can't get better than that.

At the time of my writing, there is only one seat left in this workshop.  So, bone up (pun) and come play with me @ The Mandrel... (Click here to find out more information) .

(I am very proud of that pun....)

I am currently taking a workshop from Tonya Davidson called: The Artful Success Program .. Connect, Collaborate, and Create.  This workshop is all about connecting with yourself, and how to do what you love to do, and that is to make art, and to make a living at it.  Yes, I know, I am already make a living at it, but I am always needing help with time management.  Or as Tonya says : "Self Management"  because you can't manage time, but you can manage yourself.    The first step is to eliminate.  (as the Dolics say from Dr. Who)  Eliminate, Eliminate......    Once you start making room , more things will come to you... in abundance.
