back from Art and Soul!

I just got back from Art and soul at  Virginia  beach. It was such a beautiful place and hotel for the event. Glenny moved it this year to a smaller hotel right  on the beach. My desert dried out  body loved the water and a  long walk after classes at sunset was perfect .The first evening at sunset  I  gathered shells for my students  to use the  next day in class .  Then I went out for tuna sushi another non desert food sooo YMMMUY!!!!!I met up with old  friendsand made new ones    and  was able to give my down under  blog friend  Jen  Crossley a big hug. Yes, she was there  teaching her wonderful art !!!!!!  I taught  Paper Clay "pups and wheels" and one kitty too. And my  3 times a charm, no  solder charm class .My students  blew me away as my student always do . Here are some images.
 Art and  Souls next event is vegas .  June 13 - 18 2012.

my class  - 3rd times a charm
my class -  pups on wheels 

one of the fiber arts classes 

Wow get a load of this class room set up .....

And the copper enameling class taught in that class room  !!

I finally I gave  Jen   ( Crossley) a big hug we laughed that this was all that we had the time to do .  
And yes that is me with my new "real" me  look.
 I let my hair grow out and I love not coloring it anymore .

The hotel was RIGHT  on the beach and this was our view !!!!

I made a new friend too , plus many others  with less hair.

Heading back home on the road  after a  long flight and then a 3 1/2 hour drive to Bisbee .

This is some of the fun to be had class wise at 
Las vegas Art and Soul 
See  the dress on the far  right that is "Alterations" one of 3 classes I will be teaching .

Julie, you have a gorgeous blog and I have enjoyed looking at all your fabulous art. I was at A&S too, but missed you, I think by half a day. I did though, win your door prize! I could not believe it, and when I opened it and saw your amazing steampunk necklace I was floored! I wore many times since. Thank you so much for your artful generosity!
I am including a picture of it on my blog later today if you would like to stop by.
Hugs and thank you again!

Just heard of you today via Terri Heinz of Artful Affirmations, and I am incredibly intrigued with your wonderful creations! Since I live in the Portland, OR area, only attend Art and Soul when it comes to Portland in the fall. If you'll be here, I'll certainly look for your!
