Other than this my day has been amazing!!! I had the opportunity to Docent at the Art Center where I live ( I do this every Friday) but today was different.
We had a school from the area with 40 special needs youth and adults attending the tour and basket weaving project. I was not sure how this would work out since I am used to giving this tour to 2Nd graders.
The day was wonderful with lots of laughs and some beautiful handmade baskets in all shapes and colors. This school really wanted ART and I spoke until I almost lost my voice. All of these wonderful people gave me a new look at how I do this Docent thing. It really is all about the ART and how different people respond to it. We might be young or old, struggling with disabilities or illness but it all comes down to how much we love ART and this group loved art more than anyone I have ever met.

The art for today is not yet downloaded but I found this image that my husband finally was able to get back from my old broken laptop. Guess if I was scared I had lost all my images and pictures.... YES! I know they should be saved and kept on CDs and whatnot's but I never got to it. With this new laptop I save daily. The Geek Squad (they are super) gave my old laptop the fatal diagnose this afternoon so this evening I have to get my husband to help me gather the rest of my important stuff out of it. Boy do I have a love and hate relationship with my PC....I love to use it....and I hate when it is not working...
Tomorrow I teach art again and loving it...the kids are making little cardboard books collage style with texture and fun....they should be done tomorrow. I will take some pictures and post tomorrow.

Today I am hooked on making inchies....these fun to make 1" squares decorated collage style. Tomorrow in my spare time:) I am making them with fabric!!! eBay is full of sellers selling these little collage sheets with loads of images. You can spend the whole day looking for the perfect ones. That is it for tonight, more later.

Getting Ready for the upcoming art show this Sunday March 16, Faculty Scholarship Concert / Art Show, Gunn High School, Palo Alto, CA 3:30 p.m. I will post pictures after the show. For now I am playing with my images on the computer and came up with these clocks....FUN and new to me. I have always thought that using the PC for art is sort of like cheating...no such thing at all...it takes a steady hand and lots of patience to make the mouse move the way you want it to. A whole lot easier to work with your hands :) .

OH BOY..... The flu for the very first time followed by some pneumonia and I am the first in line for the flu shot next season. Never been hit with this before I thought I was "fine" without the shot until it hit me. I have misses soooo much I just can't stand it but have to think it could be worse. Spring is here and my windows are wide open today letting the warm breeze inside with the songs from birds and children playing. Now I have to get better soon so I can get out there and enjoy the Spring....
