Play Day At Teresa's

Yesterday we had a play day at Teresa's, it was such fun. I love getting together with the girls, we always have a laugh and it's great to get their input on whatever project you are working on at the time. Gail and Jo printed these deMengie Fever aprons for us as a reminder of our workshops with Michael, thank you both they are just great.

In the back row is Liz, me, Marg and Gail, and posed so nicely in the front is Teresa and Joanne. Thank you Teresa (and Sam) for your hospitality.

My new bloke

We did a fair bit of tripping around while Julian was here and of course we did a bit of shopping. I managed to pick up this fellow when we visited the Reverse Art Truck in Ringwood. What do you think, he's pretty hot? I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with him but ideas are starting to form.


As you can see by the card, I've just turned 50......and I don't feel a day over 49. This beautiful card was made for me by Greta, isn't it gorgeous?

and open

And this fabulous piece came from Julian who stayed with me for a couple of days after Michael's workshops, I just love it.

A wonderful deMeng weekend.

Such an awesome weekend, I had a wonderful time which was made even better by having some of my ArtyOz buddies there. Everyone turned out fantastic work, Michael really is an inspiring teacher, very giving and so humerous. I learned so much and I can't wait to do more. The weekend was a long time in the planing, and now sadly it's over. Marg and I were over the moon when Michael agreed to come to Melbourne, we were so excited to be able to organise the workshops, it was a lot of work but it was fun, we really enjoyed doing it.

Thank you Caro and Con for your hospitality, we're so glad you offered the use of Ancient Echoes, it's a terrific venue and you're great hosts. We'd also like to thank Jen Crossley, Power Tool Queen, for bringing along her tools for everyone to use, it was very generous of you Jen. And of course Michael, what can I say other than a huge THANK YOU, we had an absolute ball. I'm thinking a trip to Mexico might be on the cards for next year....
