It's Art and Soul Time!

I'm here in my hotel room at the Embassy Suites in Hampton, VA.  The accommodations are great and I managed to grab a glass of wine before they closed the Manager's Reception.

Gosh, but I wish my buddies were here with me. I did run into a student from the Reston Workshop sponsored by Jeanette and Cindy.   We had a really nice chat and I found out that she is moving to the Tampa Area in the Fall!  We'll be about 25 minutes from one another at times I'm down in St. Pete.

I wanted to share with you my tool tote.  I've struggled with carting tools back and forth from Maryland to Florida before I came across this tote on sale at Target.  If you're like me, you've invested in things you think will make life be soooo much easier.  Sometimes things do accidentally work in your favor!  This tote sits on the corner of my work table and has been great for daily use and when it's time to travel, all of the tools are together.  With the addition of just a few things that don't get daily use, I was out the door on my way to Art and Soul.





I should have taken my camera with me tonight because there were some Mad Hatters getting ready for the Tea Party!  Tomorrow ... I promise more photos.

I love the fact that every time I click on something here I come back to a whole different set of "You might also like..." and I always do. This is making me very excited about Sunday's workshop!

Tool totes and carry-alls that work are always a treat. Is there a tool in there that will poke through a thin layer of ceramic glaze that's clogging up a hole where I would like to string a bead? Must be...I'll bring the project on Sunday. :-)
