And I had to spend most of today getting ready for my first real teaching gig next weekend. I am going to be teaching a class on domino art at Letter's of Joy, a yearly conference sponsored by Write On Calligraphers held at Edmonds Community College. This will be my first time attending and I am really nervously looking forward to it. I am not a Calligrapher, but the person who approached me about teaching there tells me that they are always looking for new art mediums to apply calligraphy to. I can completely understand that. i know PC artist that put it on everything that doesn't move. I have seen pictures of PC on furniture, splash guards, fireplaces and even cars. But I do worry, as I am not a teacher. I think I will try to Channel some of Christi Friesen's teaching technique ... can't go wrong if I try to emulate her.
I am also two weeks behind in my posting in the 52 Earrings Project. I haven't had the engery to make any new beads so picked through my stash for some to make up.
These are a pair of beads that I made by just elongating a round bead covered with a small bullseye cane. The background color was obtained by mixing left overs for bead guts. I kinda liked the color and used it as background.
