Lucky, Lucky Me

Sue Bleiweiss pulled my name out as one of the lucky prize recipients in her latest give away. I chose one of Sue's beautiful journals that has writing on the outside similar to my t-shirt.We both used the same curved syringe to do the writing. It's a fun technique to play with, you should give it a try.
The journal has three signatures inside, some pages are painted with metallics and some have been left white. I can't wait to start filling it up with something special, but I'm not sure what yet. Thank you, Sue; you are very generous and I LOVE it.


I would like to start teaching some classes locally. I'm planning to teach a variety of stenciling and printing techniques. It's a lot of work to get all the samples and directions made up. I hope it works out.

Kathy and I are driving to Long Beach in the morning to the first IQA show. Many of our friends are already there; Susan Italo is giving demonstrations on how she makes her beautiful jackets and I'm hoping to meet up with Ruth Rae in the QA booth. I want to check out the Stewart Gil paints I keep hearing about. I'm excited, it's going to be a lot of fun!

How much money do you think I'll spend? Hmmmm . . . that would be a good contest. I'll give a prize (unknown at the moment) to the person that guesses the closest amount. Even though it seems like I own every product ever made, I keep finding more to buy. Why is that??

That is a nice journal you received from Sue.
Have fun at the show and remember that you'll only be sorry, if you don't buy it. $250.

Congratulations on winning one of Sue's journals. Was great to meet you at the show. I will guess 420.00 but don't ask what I spent,
I don't want to see it in print.

Glad you reminded us about the contest - I missed that last paragraph of the post - guess I stopped reading when the jealousy overtook me seeing that you got that great journal from Sue!

As for how much you spent, I can only base it on what I might spend at a show so I'mm guess $370

ANNA said...

Have I told you how much I enjoy your blog, Judy? I check it at least a few times each month in between FV meetings. Glad to hear you had a good time in Long Beach. Surely you didn't spend less than $254, did you? More I could believe, but that's my best guess!

500 vendors, really? If I were there I'd be humming "If I had a Million Dollars" all day, that's for sure! Let's see ... are you the spendy type? I'll guess $415.
