Well, today was the last Monday in the 4th grade room. At least until September when we’ll get another class. Unfortunately, I had to call in sick today. Actually, I had Phil call in for me since I have completely lost my voice! Can’t talk above a whisper. We had planned a pizza art party and Penny did it on her own. Afterwards she came by to deliver a handful of thank you cards the students had made for us. We had a good time reading them over a cup of tea. One of mine was made as a crown:
Last Friday I had the chance to go to Santa Monica to see the Contemporary Crafts Market where I met Karren Brito and finally saw her work in person. It was, of course, stunning. She generously showed me her pieces and I was able to purchase a second copy of her book which she signed for me. My other copy is very shop worn!
You can get it on Amazon but if you order it from Karren, she’ll sign it for you!
