Art & Wine Evening

Can you think of a better coupling? I can't except maybe something with coffee. :) Davalynn, my client's wife, is very artistically talented. Their home has many of her own creations (need I say beautiful?) adorning the walls. Her pieces are stunning. To share her passion, she started an art and wine evening in her home studio for friends who think the aren't artistic. She described the canvas that participants would be making and I was sold! Holly went with me and we had a delightful time! It was amazing to see how different everyone's canvases were. We used shredded paper, dipped in diluted glue and arranged them on the canvas. Then, we used dye to paint the canvas and we could use watercolor to paint the shredded paper if we wanted to. I chose not to paint mine since I chose shredded paper that had quite a bit of color on it. I'm looking forward to the next month's A&W evening!

I fought the concrete pillar and it won!

An act of desperation?

For the past two weeks (at least) we have been getting phone calls from a Texas politician asking us to vote. The problem or weirdness of this? We have lived in Washington for two years and they're calling our home number...obviously not a TX area code! It must be an act of desperation.
