Whatcha doing next weekend? If you feel like a road trip, plan to be in the area (those of you I have filed restraining orders against excluded) or are just generally masochistic, why not flex your creative muscles with me and Jane at Random Arts? You know, Jane -- you read about her and her delightful goods for creative mindfulness in the current issue of CPS, remember?
She's had all sorts of MM celebs out to teach: Katie Kendrick, Kristi Steiner, Michael deMeng. Apparently, no really good artists were available next weekend, so I slipped Jane $5 to let me teach. I also threatened her with bodily harm.
As a result of this blackmail, on September 22nd, I will be leading a group of intrepid, like-minded media mixers in Micro-Media Mayhem, much like at MIU. (Ooooh! Triple Letter Score for me and all that alliteration!) We're going to make something fabulous! Actually three fabulous somethings - a triptych of sorts. There are only a couple of slots left! Hurry. HURRY!
Sure, these MIU Students had a great time, but only 1/3 as much fun as we're gonna have!
Here's a sample of one of the said objects de fabulosity.Saluda, NC is a darling little hamlet somewhere near or around where my mother-in-law lives. Don't ask me for even general directions, I get lost every time. There are no landmarks. Just trees. Nondescript, tall trees. And hills.
I think I have taken a different circuitous and serpentine route all one million times I've been to Jane's shop. Here is what I have learned:
- It's ok to take a little longer to get there because I always stop at McFarlan's Bakery first and have between 3 and 4 dozen Almond Macaroons riding shotgun.
- In the mountains of North Carolina, all two lanes [eventually] lead to Saluda.
- Sadly, by the time I eventually arrive, at least one dozen Almond Macaroons have not survived the trip.
- Jane is always happy to see you, despite the binge eating of baked goods and numerous wrong turns.
So come out and play, why dontcha? See Jane's site for details. I might even save you a macaroon.
