Sacramento Art Fiesta Show Special

As I write this post, I am packing up for San Ramon. But next weekend in Sacramento will be here quickly. The big news about the Sacramento Show this year is that I will be inside the old William Glen Store, with Air conditioning! At least, it is hard for me to believe that they won't turn it on anyhow. Last year was a fiasco with the rain, thunderstorms and tornado warnings, so the save haven of a building is looking wonderful. I have a great Show Special for Sacramento email newsletter customers. If you aren't getting my newsletter, sign up above to receive the "show special". I love doing this at Sacramento. All the other shows require a commission that I must pay, from 10-20%. This show does not require that, so I am able to pass on that saving and make it fun too. How great is that? Hope you all have a great Memorial Day weekend.

A Fine 50's Whine

Yes, I am going to whine again. I was born in the 50's. That is a volume of information right there about me. I have a love/hate relationship with technology. I love what I can do with it, and hate being my own tech support.I love being able to reach out, yet hate the constant pressure to tweet,twit,post,link, and blog. The big one that I have been avoiding is that my reach should include, of all things, asking people to "friend" me. This is, of course, all very old news. We have been asked to friend a zillion things by now. But I have to ask as well, and it just irritates me. Being born in the 50's, I just feel it is impolite to ask such a thing. However I have attended yet ANOTHER class on internet intelligence, and again I have been told I must do this. I spent a half a day in that class, and I just don't want to think I wasted my time. So here goes. Please friend me on Facebook.

San Ramon Wind Festival this Weekend

I am working for this weekend's show in San Ramon. I have never been at this show with my jewelry before, so we will see how it goes. Since I don't do Danville shows much anymore, I was hoping this show would get me back to that neighborhood. I am sorry to say I don't even know the name of the park it is at. It must be time to read my paperwork!

The Saratoga Rotary Art Show is this Sunday, May 6th on the West Valley College campus. This is a great one day show that has been going on for many years, and it looks like the weather will be beautiful this year. My husband will also be at this show with his watercolors. I wish I had more to say about this, but he is loading the van and I need to go help!

My New Mac

I just bought a used Mac from Ebay, and I was holding my breath. When I returned home from the Walnut Creek show, there it was. I was afraid to open it. When I picked it out on Ebay, I sort of covered my eyes and clicked "buy". I was unable to make myself do any of the research one SHOULD do for this kind of purchase, so I knew I was really shooting in the dark. I liked the picture, as a matter of fact, the color in the photo made the computer look extremely pink, and that figured into my decision somewhat. That, and the fact that my PC laptop is on it's way out, and I would be left in the lurch. So I opened the outer box, and there was the original Mac box. That was comforting. I set it up ( so easy) and finally found the ON button. That was the hardest. Imagine my relief when it started, and worked!! This morning I made a quick slideshow of a few of my Chunky Monkeys. I am amazed at the features on this computer, and I look forward to learning everything it can do.

About Me

My photo
Calaveras County, California, United States
I love the stones and pearls, and the magic that happens when I combine them, and then again combined with the glass I make. You can find me at an Art show somewhere in Northern California most weekends during the spring and summer. Email me at if you like.
