Next is was up to Victrola coffeehouse on Pike (or was it Pine?) where we journaled for almost 3 hours straight with the headphones on. Pure bliss! I popped on down to Utrecht a block down to stretch my legs and found some creamy smooth new colored pencils (colorsoft by derwent) that I wanted to try. I bought 5 single colors and took them back up to Victrola. Loved them so much that when we left, Tracy and I popped back in there and he bought me a set of 24 and bought the derwent inktense pencils for himself since he loves to play with water soluble pencils and these delivered intense color.

Here is the logo prototype for Artfest 2009 which is now up on my website, by-the-way. www.teeshamoore.com Lots of good workshops and fun galore. I should add in here that Tracy drew this based on our 'sea monster" theme.
On Saturday is Tracy's birthday (46th) so what he wants to do is go journal all day in seattle on friday (fine with me!!!) and then he wants to work in his studio on a new metal journal all day saturday (and he implied with no interruptions)...again, fine by me! I haven't had a chance to play in my studio either which I am eager to do. I think I will mess around with fabric and see if I can whip out some fun stuff for artfiberfest in october.
Last weekend we had the first ever workshop held at our studio/house. We had 20 women come to it and it was really fun. They all did amazing work despite the crazy heat wave we had. We realized we'd prefer less people and more lights up, but all in all, it turned out really good.
Lastly...we now have new collage sheets up as well as those sharpie pens that I am crazy about (and now all 20 of the women who came to the workshop) are crazy about too.
will let you know how the journaling day goes tommorrow.
