Updates,classes and so on...

I can't believe I am posting...AGAIN...this is record breaking. My friend Karen will be so proud of me. Since returning from ArtUnraveled, I feel I've been in a state of lala land. I don't want to spoil the feeling and experience I had so I am extremely reluctant to do anything that isn't fun, like doing my taxes. I have cleaned my house...kind of... You see I teach private belly dance lessons and art classes at my home studio and that is my only impetus to clean...and the fact that I can't stand dirty hard wood floors and a messy kitchen and bathroom. Other than that I have been having a fun time with my daughter and painting a chair for someone. I also take care of my other businesses (not fun) and the bookkeeping...ugh,bore, blah. My husband and I own a retail "style" lab in Hermosa Beach,CA as well as a design studio.

Tomarrow I will be at Piecemakers for a trunk show and demonstrating a class I will be teaching Aug. 24. The above picture is a glimpse into the style to be taught. I don't know if I have any sign ups because I didn't have an actual sample at the store. There was just too much stuff going on . I am also teaching a Beginning solder class at Piecemakers Sept. 7 and a Wire Jewelry class at my studio in Torrance on Sept.14. There are pictures of both the classes on this blog. The class at my studio includes a 12 page handout with color photos, lunch and hands on instruction . Piecemakers also has a great venue with lunch on the premises for a donation and lots of great things to buy .

On another "note" i have added music to the site....how do you like it? Is it distracting? I know when I look at other blogs and the music starts blarring at 2am I am a little jarred, but I turn it down and then it's okay. I am starting to realize that blogs can be a glimpse into ones personality and by adding music and other types of "mood" or other sensory enhancing ephemera I am essentially making a "welcome" sign to you visitors into my world. It's a brave action and puts me in a more vulnerable position. I have been belly dancing professionally for over 18 years....how much more vulnerable can I get? Now if I could only send out puffs of incense.....

hugs and shimmies!

Hi Robin, It was great seeing you today at Piecemakers. You weren't kidding when you said you had been blogging more. I'll have to check back more often. I checked out the websites you gave me and am having a good time with all the eye candy. I'm looking forward to getting back to stamp club. See you soon. Dianna

Wow, love the colours!

I work from home and when ever I have clients coming over I madly clean beforehand!
