Hello race fans and welcome to the 2018 Zephyr Derby! In the starting gate, ready and raring to go, are our four contestants; Material Matrix, Pet Portraits, Upcyclin’ Heidi and Creative Canvas. And they’re off! They are quick out of the gate to prepare their classes. The early lead goes to Material Matrix. With many wins under her belt, a pro in her field, she easily preps and is ready to go. Coming in a close second is Pet Portraits. She’s a frequent racer familiar with the track. Her car is loaded and full of fuel for the short drive to Zephyr. In the back stretch we have Upcyclin’ Heidi and Creative Canvas. Upcyclin’ Heidi is gaining ground after a brief stop at the thrift store. With an abundance of energy, she easily multi tasks her way to the retreat. And bringing up the rear, Creative Canvas will need to put some blinders on if she wants to stay focused and finish the race. They are rounding the corner and coming down the home stretch. And here comes Cinderella from the outside to give her sister, Creative Canvas, a leg up. They are now head to head. It’s a dead heat! They will cross the finish line on Labor Day! All will be winners, ready to meet their students.
A new demo bag.
Some bags to sell.
Seventy two nozzles to de-gunk for free flowing paint.
And why don’t I start prepping earlier for Zephyr? You’ve heard it said, “Life is what happens while you’re busy making plans.” Here’s a peak into the last few months with some random pictures to fill up the blog today!
This jacket was entered in the Nevada County fair and received a couple of ribbons in the Wearable Art division.
A trip down memory lane. I saw this picture of my first serger. It was passed on to me from my mother when she upgraded hers. I do believe it is the prototype to all sergers! All metal. Just had to share that.
So those were some of my distractions lately. But my Cinderella sister will be here soon to help me out.
To those who will be attending Zephyr: we’ll see you in ten short days! To the rest of our readers, I hope you were entertained by today’s installment of the Artistic Alchemy blog. Enjoy the remainder of your summer! And win a trophy for creating something beautiful!
