Okay...maybe two days....
So, how fabulous is this....you get an invite to meet the stars of BRAVOS newest hit show "Jersey Belle" !
It stars one of our fantastic local gals, Jaime Primak Sullivan (see below with moi) who married a delicious Alabama guy and is now living and raising her 3 kids there.
and we get to spend the evening with her Jersey friends and her Alabama friends at the American Hotel in Freehold, NJ!
and, Jaime just happens to be the PR agent for Wayne Brady (among others)....so...Hey..I have peeps and I know peeps...and how peeping fabulous is that one !
Yesterday I hook up with one of my FAVORITE PEEPS...Linda Hahola...who is taking a paper making class up at the Visual Art Center of NJ in Summit....not exactly around the corner from me...
Linda is a big fan of alcohol inks...so..I make her something kind of special...
Filling a bezel with alcohol inks, adding a piece of aluminum thats been alcohol inked and rubber stamped, adding copper zamora beads, chunky glass glitter and sealing it all in with Ice Resin.
SHE LOVED IT !!
and.....she shows me what the class is doing and lets me try to.
expressing my level of confidence...NOT !
(mind you, this is NOT the first time I've made paper...thank you to Kim at Arnold Grummer Papermaking!!!)
I decide to mold faces.....sound familiar..
Now...what TOPS this....well....hang on to your hats boys and girls...the incredible lady who teaches this class.....is 96 years old and as vibrant and full of life as you can ever imagine....MEET FRAN !!!...who, according to her, attributes her health to STANDING UP STRAIGHT !!!
before heading out to lunch....a quick trip to the ladies.....
and why, you're asking yourselves, am I telling you this...
The restroom was completely TILED...by hand...by artists
And, when you turned out the light.....the ceiling lit up with the night sky....
Lunch at Monster Sushi....where the whole restaurant had Godzilla figurines everywhere...
and, where I left a little bit of ABANDON in the restroom!!
I love my life !!!
I LOVE my friends !
