Well, here it is: the first complaints (other than the ones that mentioned that I had sent out my email rather than my blogsite...heavier sigh)...my youngest daughter, by the name of Caitlin, called from the Great Midwest to tell me that she and her friends had viewed my blog with pride until they got to the part where I mentioned a guy named 'Ernie' and not Caity as well...I didn't get it, but years of motherhood has taught me that ruffled feathers are not to be desired...so...here goes:
I am off on a visit and artful quest tomorrow to the Ohio where my youngest is going to school and working fulltime, so perhaps that's what's got her riled up...that and her car has no a/c., the apartment a/c is broken and work has no a/c...that might make me a bit prickly as well. I have two daughters, Jessie, the eldest, lives in Lake Tahoe and is a massage therapist, the aforementioned Caitlin is in Columbus. Jessie has been my most artistic offspring and I look forward to her artistic development as the years roll on. Caitlin showed talent but has no patience to take the time to explore creativity: must not be the right time...soccer has been her game and claim to fame. Both of my girls have encouraged and praised and been an active part of the best part of me...Stacie is Caitlin's friend in Columbus and she has been our houseguest, now I get to see HER city...I AM excited, no doubt about it!!! Look out girls and Columbus!
So, off to visit and also to take a class..."Medieval Book of Hours" at European Papers in Columbus...I am excited, as bookbinding and bookmaking have become a favorite part of my creative quest...but then again, books have been a huge part of my life in general! After the class, I am going to visit a new friend that is also an artist, at her home, where she will initiate me into the ancient world of silk dyeing...something I have tried, but have not a shred of confidence in, have never taken a course or class, and only know that I don't like the feel of painted silk against my skin: hence learning to dye silk the correct way. I hope to have lots of photos from my adventures and post them...As it is, I think I'll post photos of the girls and sign off. I'm so excited!!!
