Our winter here in the desert southwest has, for the most part, been colder than normal...there were mornings where our pool has actually frozen over around the edges...something we have never experienced in the five years we have lived here. This is not something that thrills me...one of the reasons we left New York permanently...because of the cold, snow and ice! I know, still a far cry from a "real" winter, but nonetheless made it rather chilly for us "desert rats", which now my husband and myself consider ourselves!
I first discovered these altered playing cards through a swap last fall and I was instantly hooked! A fun and ingenious way of taking a simple playing card, altering it and adding a favorite quote, word or phrase....I often need and appreciate daily reminders to myself of some of these...a gentle prodding, sometimes a word of comfort, and often an inspirational phrase is just what's needed in my day....I am thrilled to offer this class and look forward to sharing it with others....there should be a law about having this much fun!
I can't wait for classes to begin....not until June and I have a lot more work to do before then. Filming begins very soon on both classes after a short break to take a much deserved breather.....in the meantime I have other work to catch up on and some work for The Urban Ranch General Store here in Las Vegas....she soon will have an online catalog which will be fantastic for the people that don't get to shop "in the flesh"!
Before we know it, spring will be upon us and we will be as busy as the bees....in the meantime I hope to be more productive here and to keep you all caught up on the current events of Desert Dream Studios!
Signing off for now and looking forward to another post to share more with all of you....and thank you for your interest in my work and classes! MJC
