Edie did a Wild Rose on a lid for a glass bowl, it isn't quite finished but it would be a nice little Friday night workshop.
So after our workshops we went to the trade show, and of course I got some great ornament packets. I also have Renee Mullins new book for the store so if you want one call Odette and tell her. They will be back with me on Tuesday, pretty sure I will come home with Jamie Mills Price's and Willow's new books.
After the trade show we were parched so off to the corner gas station for some wine and beer. Of course we didn't have a corkscrew so Edie just pushed the cork into the bottle with scissors. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.

After shopping and lunch we headed back to the hotel to get our stuff to actually go do what we came for 'Painting'. All of our workshops started at 3 till 9:30, Sharon did a Mixed Media Piece using Golden products, Edie did a 'Watercolour Pencil' technique class. I did a 'Oil Painting'. I really enjoyed my class, Lynne Mathieu and Judy Hawkings from the Guild at home were in my class. Poor Judy was hobbling along due to a broken bone in her foot. Here's a shot of Lynne and a couple of more of Earline Padgett (the instructor) and of my painting, which I am almost finished then I will post the finished painting.
The Girls are in workshops right now, I dropped Edie off at the Convention Centre bright and early this morning 7:15 for a 8am class till 5. Then Sharon at 12:15 for a 1pm -5pm class, did I mention that I was the Shuttle Service. At 6pm I will meet up with Sharon for our 6-10 workshop. So I guess that is all I have to report for now.

I hope everyone had a great long weekend, can you believe that there is only 5 more weeks till school starts.
So Paulette and I had a great time in Atlantic City, I actually did quite well on the Penny Slots, figure I was up about $400.00. Of course I didn't come home with it had to spend it on a new watch etc.
Just got Holly Hanleys new book in on Friday, and she signed them so I have 5 signed copies in the store. If you would like one give me a call. As usual Holly has put out a great book with wonderful projects.Also just got the newest Paintworks Magazine in.
