Art Teachers at Play

Rockport (TX) Center for the Arts hosts their annual Art Educator Days.
Teachers from all around the state meet to learn new skills and ideas for
themselves and their classrooms. These pictures come from my Wire Pins
and Pendants class. They did such a great job designing their own pieces.

Brrrrrrrrr in Texas, too.

Okay, its not cold here compared to up north, but we're not used to it. Yes, in south Texas we're wimps about the cold. So, I've been working on adding some new things to my Etsy Shop. There's a lampwork glass Sea Turtle set and a bracelet I call the Red Coral Love in a Turquoise Sea.

A Day at the Skate Park

This is our little future X-Games star. Well, maybe not a star, but he's pretty good for his 6 years. The view from the park isn't bad, either. Corpus Christi has done a good thing with this park.

Meet Corpus Gus

Corpus Gus is a proud cowboy hunk of a skinny-legged gull. We call him the “Unofficial Ambassador of Fun” for Corpus Christi, Texas. He has a bit of an attitude, like most Texans and loves his City and State. You can find Gus all over the city. He loves outdoor activities, art, music, and people. He also likes skateboarding at the skate park, talking with shrimpers, getting his board ready for a sail, window shopping on Chaparral Street. After a busy day, he nestles into his perch at the Art Center on Shoreline Drive.

Gus has friends up and down the Texas Gulf Coast and loves to visit them. He shares with them how our city is a fun place to play and a cool place to work and live.
Prints of Gus are available at the Corpus Christi Art Center Gift Shop.

Still Learning!

Here's me as a mermaid. If you see me in the Etsy forums, this is what you'll see. I'm still working on add to and improving the blog. I know its not very interesting yet.

New Year

Happy New Year All! I guess I'm celebrating by starting this blog, something I've never done before. As they say, you're never too old to learn new tricks, and I'm learning. I have a lot more to learn about this, but am having fun. I hope to bring some interesting things here for you. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon.
