Wow, I can't believe August is almost over. I participated in Art in the Redwoods last weekend. Freezing weather one day and warm sunshine the next. Now I am getting ready to show my jewelry in a 2 weekend Studio Discovery Tour. If you don't know what that is we have 43 artists on the northern coast of California that will open their studio's for Labor day weekend and the weekend after. I have another jeweler showing at my studio. We have decided to have a reception with a 15% discount this Friday night. I know I will literally be falling off my feet after four days but I say if you are going to do it go all in! My niece, Kristen Irons Photography who is starting her photography business made postcards for Walt and I as "Fire & Ice" (see above). Walt works in gold and silver and stones and I work in fused glass and some lampwork. I had my earring cards and price tags custom made and they look like starfish, which is my logo. They look so cool.
We went to a memorial last week for a friend that just died. Usually they are very depressing but this one was very joyful. His sons who are in the Marines and the Army both were there and we got to reconnect with so many friends that we haven't seen since we moved away 11 years ago. Very nice in a not so nice situation.
I'll let you know how it goes this weekend.
