mandalas and magazines

Well another Gilroy Garlic Festival has come and gone and I got hit pretty hard afterwards with trying to recover. Its always so tiring and crazy. I am glad its over for another year and I am back to feeling my normal self. I can't believe how fast this summer is going by. The public schools go back in session here in just 2 weeks! It was such a short summer for them.. fortunately we have until Sept 13 to do fun summer stuff and as a post festival treat I signed up to take this fun looking class from Deborah Everton. I remember making mandalas in my college design class and have always enjoyed them and their interesting place in religious history.
So anyway, when Hope posted about this Shabby Mandala Class I knew it was for me! I am looking forward to getting back into the studio and getting inspired when I get moving on this class. Yay... and speaking of online classes.. I shared late last year that I was taking a virtual journal class from Mary Ann Moss which was fabulous!! So fab, in fact that a small group of classmates decided to submit some of our work to Stampington for publication consideration and they picked us up for a feature in Somerset Memories which is due out October 1!! Very exciting stuff to look forward to. What have you been up to?
