Things are rather busy here at "Liesel Land". In the past week I've worked on a catalog for a fashion clothing company, ordered 12 bottles of glue from Amazon, planned a teaching event for 2015, drew pictures of raccoons riding bicycles for a children's book, wrote a 4 page class handout, installed more RAM in my computer, swept the leaves and am now preparing to teach two full classes this weekend: watercolor sketching and making journals from children's books. Whew! I'm very appreciative for all the projects that have come my way. But I wanted to explain to those of you in Seattle who are wondering why my winter class schedule isn't up yet... now you know. Every quarter I like to offer 2-3 new classes, and even I have a hard time remembering how much time it takes to come up with a good idea, make the samples, write the handout, take photos, write a class description, make the schedule and then put it up on my website. Those of you on my mailing list will be the first to know when it is up!
This type of busy mayhem will be lasting through the end of the year. So I ask for your kind indulgence while my blog posts become a bit more sporadic. : )
I hunted out some fun videos for you to enjoy while I'm busy.
I wish you and your loved ones a fabulous Thanksgiving!!!
And now for your entertainment pleasure...
