We pause from our regularly scheduled schedule... to bring you a creative interlude. Diana - scheduled to post today - is in the midst of relocating to Rochester NY! This is her world view right now:

We hear everyone is settling in nicely and Diana will be back ASAP with news and posts!
So Jenny here! <waves> I have a creative interlude planned today with Marsha - wanna come along? Not a full play date but a coffee talk catch up....
OK - I have to say - I had not seen Marsha ( of Marsha Neal Studio) in FAR too long. Crazy summer schedules, some medical stuff that had her out of commission... So we were way overdue for a catch up. Why is this worth a whole blog post you ask?
|Umm, yes. Exactly. My fav small local coffee shop!|
There is a contact high, for lack of a better term, when hanging out with a fellow creative mind. And when you are both fast paced personalities - it can be quite a rush. I always leave Marsha's presence invigorated and inspired! Her kids, and their cousins were thundering away upstairs, so amidst their peals of laughter we took our beverages down to her creative lair...

|Metal, enamel and kilns - oh my!|
|Secret stash of metal clay!|
Just seeing this makes my fingers itch! I had my introductory lessons in metal clay with Lesley and Karen last summer ( recap here). I confess - I haven't touched it since. I have the clay, the tools, and access to a kiln at work. But being able to talk it all out with Marsha - and urge each other on? Priceless.
|Inspiration is everywhere!|
|Up next on Marsha's horizon...|
