I'm back from Colorado Springs, but headed back to Denver in the morning for the Greeley show. Ah, such a glamorous jet-setting life lead. LOL
Here's a recent weekend chez moi. I think this is where they hide the dead bodies!

I'm heading for the show at Colorado Springs tomorrow morning, so it's the usual last-minute panic this evening. I haven't been to Colorado for years, so I'm hoping that some of my old Stamp Out Cute friends will show up.
I'm teaching a couple of classes and holding a trunk show at China Phoenix2 in Albuquerque on October 22-25. Here's the shadow-box project we'll be making.

Well, I'm back from Helsinki, but Art Unraveled is right off the list. I was sitting in a Helsinki hotel Friday night reading an email from Paula (www.paulabest.com), and I quote "I'm heading off in the truck. See you later today!." Well, THAT didn't happen. Previously, I've arrived at a show for which I never sent in an application; I've purchased tickets for the wrong date (several times); I've even gone to the wrong venue; but this is a new First. As I bumble my way through the years, and across continents, I wonder just how much more incompetent I can get...and then I surprise myself. Very sorry Art Unraveled folks. I'd been collecting some very kewl stuff expecially for you, that must wait for next year.
I didn't take a camera to Helsinki because it weighed a pound (isn't THAT sad), and my phone battery is very whimsical after 18 months (gotta love (NOT!) Planned Obsolescence), so my one pic was taken by Fred and Ank (www.stampinback.nl). This is one of my classes after the show.

Yay!!!! Count 'em -- FOUR functioning legs!! Cosmos in his Ricaro-Montalban-Lounging-in-a-Smoking-Jacket pose....and very happy to have the collar and wrappings off. It's been a LONG 10 weeks.
Here's what the mending bones look like now. It's it amazing how they've gone back together. I'd never dared to hope that we'd be this lucky. If Creighton or I ever break anything, we're going to the vet!!

He's not too keen on the leash, but we have to keep him quiet for another month.
I'm off to a show in Helsinki tomorrow, and then down to Phoenix for Art Unraveled, so probably won't post again for a couple of weeks.

I got a new, cushy bike seat, so Batman and I have been touring the neighborhoods in the evenings. We're up to 6 miles, and were aiming for 8 tonight, but it's just too danged hot.
Cosmos' appointment yesterday was postponed, so we'll be going for our, hopefully, last visit this coming Tuesday. He broke the splint on his last visit -- another $423.00 jab :-(
