Soooo good

Amy and I really like the Honey Stinger Waffles and they might be the tastiest morsels one could desire during a longer workout. The initial packaging was a bit tricky though and not so easy to open, but the new ones open just fine. Yum.

Just imagine

The image below was taken in Indonesia where farmers use a road to dry their rice. Now imagine if that happened in Europe or North America? People don't even have patience /tolerance for farmers driving tractors or cyclists on the roads.

ARTpARTy Februarus 2011

The ARTpARTy last night was a great success and we had an incredible 22 pieces of ART on display which were eventually going home with someone else. We also had a record amount of first timers here but that certainly did not show.

Betsy Hamilton started off the evening with a bang

Jeff Zillner's pillow was snatched up early

Maybe the only ARTpARTy moment when Bill Brewer did not smile

Laura Scott with her decoupage creation

Amy created a 3-dimensional art work and seemingly has a crappy photographer as a husband :-(

With my cement book ends

Our neighbor Mary Horan had done a nice print

A beautiful necklace by Clare Fader

Kyle Webster had never been to one of our parties and we were glad he came.

Paige and Andy Lester Niles with a Prefontaine shrine and a warm knitted hat (now ours)

The lamp by Julia Toone and Brian LeFevre was very popular

Charles and Erika von Isenburg crafted a beer bottle opener and a boot scratcher for their first appearance at ARTpARTy

A beautiful photo by Evan and Caitlin Brennan who joined the ARTpARTy for the first time.

Hannah Albertson was an ARTpARTy newbie too, but it did not show.

Jen Cannon is already an experienced ARTpARTy guest

Laura Gallaher's star was crafted from recycled Christmas cards

Kyle and Laura Godat are ARTpARTY veterans by now

Vicki Latimer Roan had her husband Tim embedded in this ART piece, and boy was it popular.

Max was crafty with wood, paint, nails and string

Almost there

With the ARTpARTy Februarus 2011 approaching with giant steps, my current art work for the pARTy has only limited time left in this house. It took me quite a bit of time to get these cement book ends finished, but they came out very nice. I also learned a lot in the process for future cement projects. Tonight's event though should be super exciting and word has it that lots of good art pieces will be exchanged.
