ConvenZi-what? In the ongoing saga of "As the Jood Turns," I am now going to attempt soldering. (I'd go into a digression about what an interesting word "solder" is--I mean why IS that "l" in there--but I'll try to stick to the subject) With a bit of arm-twisting from Kathy McElroy and the enticing photo shown here, I am now on my way to burning body parts and endangering my clothes. ConvenZioNE is a gathering of artists in Pleasanton the last weekend in August. It will be an fun-filled event with creative classes (yep, I'm tryin' those little houses), fine food & artsy friends. I'd say I was excited but I'm too busy searching for an asbestos suit. In preparation I am taking a soldering class locally tonight. We'll see how many digits I injure. If you want to learn more about ConvenZioNE just follow this link--hope to see you in August!:

I suspect you will not burn your fingers [too much] and I know you'll have fun. I look forward to seeing what you do in August.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Sally Jean is just so much fun to take a class with! I did use a couple of transparencies - the girl with the sunglasses, and "Dreamer" guy. But the rest of the collaging - well, you just use thin pieces of paper. The black & white was actually a napkin that I separated. I used really old, vintage papers - they are really thin. As you work, you just keep holding it up to look at it through the light. It's easier than it sounds.

I know you'll have fun!! Can't wait to see your house! I just got more glass so I'm going to do some more.

I think it has an "L" so that the hicks in the south can show their ignorance by pronouncing it sol-der.

You be great at it! Have fun and know that I am so envious of Kathy getting to come to California!
