And in honor of Earth Day here are some photos of the flowers (and horse) that I greet on my daily walks up here in the mountains.
Planning on taking a picnic hike at Jalama or Figueroa Mountain with my boys after our Sunday Easter egg hunt and brunch.

They both have pink tails but it is a little hard to see them in this photo.
After Artfest I had to jump right in and start working at our Plumbing-Hardware store 3 days a week. Due to the economy we had to let go of some employees and the boys and I need to take up the slack. I mostly work at the register due to my lack of plumbing expertise. It's a 50 minute drive each way but it is along the beautiful Pacific Ocean so I don't mind. But I do find I need a nap when I get home!

We had such a great group gathered for the hooking workshop. Everyone made completely unique houses plus a winged heart and fun green bird.
What a great day we all had. Loved spending the day with such wonderful women. As Deanne Fitzpatrick says, once you have hooked at least one piece you can teach someone how to hook. Everyone jumped right in and started their piece and most actually finished up their designs in one days work and they all came out so beautifully whimsical and fun.

A really great class. I loved the silk screen process and can see myself using it for lots of fun things.
The next day I took a caged doll making class with Tory Brokenshire and we were so busy that I forgot to take any photos! It was lots of fun too and I learned some new techniques that will come in handy soon for an upcoming art show.
Tomorrow I will post photos of my class and the fun things everyone hooked.
