Well, my bags are packed...

...or at least I've started.

Getting ready for a sold-out mixed media playdate in Kimberley is no easy task, especially when it's with fifteen new and not-so-new friends.

There will be tons of rich colour,


 mark-making implements,


mediums up the ying-yang (as our family expression goes),


and bags of student supplies to boot.


By the time I get finished packing today, the studio will be unrecognizable, the floor will be unseeable, and the car will be groaning with the thought of the load it will carry tomorrow.


I couldn't be happier - what could be more fun than playing in a huge studio at Centre 64 in Kimberley for the weekend.  You know it's going to be a blast!

    2. Forgot to mention that Kimberley, BC, Canada (http://www.kimberley.ca/) is a Bavarian-style town on the eastern side of the Canadian Rockies, about two hours from where I am in Creston, BC. It's my daughter's go-to place for skiing, too, (see previous turned ankle post :D), and both a wonderful cultural spot with their fabulous arts centre, and a terrific outdoor haven.
