So now that the summer sales are over, it's back to school and the drawing board, infused with other events like fund raisers, mixers and an artsy-type get together this evening. Pretty busy schedule for a stay at home like me.
On Wednesday, we had our "Un-Back to School" Reunion, hosted by my former teaching buddy "L'autre PS" (we taught at the same school and would tease each other about our initials). It was wonderful to get togethr and hear and see about their activities. Not to mention, the clanging of the ol' school bell while the kids were beckoned back and we just socialized.
Last evening, I attended the Manitoba Wildlife Federation Fundraiser and was invited to display my polymer clay creations as part of a select group of Artists belonging to Uniquely Manitoba. We each donated a piece for auction and were treated to a delightful dinner at the Victoria Inn here in our city. The evening was a busy one with auctions and draws, as well as special appearances by football and other sports personalities. It was a great networking opportunity and a chance to meet some of the other artists that belong to Uniquely Manitoba. I had originally intended to donate my ivory book, but alas, it sold last weekend so donated a wine decanter instead.
In preparation for that I had to go out and buy a new printer so I could have some brochures available. My old Deskjet was out of ink and the replacement cartridges were more than the price of my new all in one printer, scanner copier etc. that even prints pages that I can send from my Blackberry. It was a bit of a learning curve for me to get all that technology set up, but after a few hours of set up, all the pages, business cards and assorted promo stuff was all done. All I had to do was cut the cards and fold the brochures...I am surprised the machine didn't do that too.
Needless to say, the little robots inside my new machine were not quite up to the hype as shown in the Google sign for today. If you haven't tried it, pressing on certain characters within the sign leads to a cute little animated game...so if you are inclined, just go to www.google.com and see what fun awaits.
Later on this afternoon we are going to attend an artsjunction gathering...so much socializing! When will I have time to Clay? I promised to make a Guest Book for a wedding for the end of the month...yikes. I have the clay now just need to get going! I promise to post a picture of it when it's done.
