I'm going to Cali in Oct and can't wait

Cali is my state, where i was born - it's in my blood and i miss it terribly sometimes. I haven't been in a few years. my mom and sister are there as well and many friends - so i am gleefully excited that i'm going! my girlfriend, Cindy Forrester, has agreed to her first teaching gig and i couldn't be happier for her. We've been emailing since last Christmas, when we had met online through etsy and did a necklace trade together (which i will wear to class and show off!). And another friend, Dede Warren and her friend, Robin are running the retreat - a new venture for her as well. Congrats to both of you. they are calling it The Artist Studio and registration has already begun with spots still available. The retreat is being held in Seal Beach. check out the flyer show casing Cindy's beautiful and much admired work. i am hoping to talk my good bud, Jennifer into attending if she can. she's so close and i must see her! (hint, hint). also, i found out that another online friend, Jamie, of Simply My Art, is attending. So i am thrilled to be meeting her in person as well. I think this is going to be a very talented group of women coming together. can you tell how excited i am?


  1. oooh! dede told me about cindy's work and it is really cool. i am so tempted to take this class but i will already be enrolled in another metalsmithing class then and that weekend is my son's ninth birthday. but boy oh boy i know it is going to be awesome. and you will be there so that makes it even more fun!

  2. Oh what fun you will have at The Artists Studio.
    You have been so busy creating fabulous pieces since my last visit.

  3. It looks like you will have a wonderful time. I'm going to California on Tuesday for a week, just to visit and have fun - it'll be my first week there and I'm looking forward to it.

  4. That sounds like an awesome workshop! You know, you could just keep traveling north and stop in your old stopping grounds of Ferndale. You could even stay with me here in Fortuna. Are you coming to Art and Soul in Portland, too? I hope so!

  5. Wow, how nice for you!!! That's great news! I know you'll have fun!

  6. Won't this be so much fun?! Cindy is a sweetheart!
