Click to see Gertrude
I was on Facebook just looking different people's comments about Lost and other things going on in this world when I saw a Friend Request come up. I always click to see who the person is as sometimes folks want to "friend" you just to send you tons of spam about their products or to brag that they have a million friends...oh, like who doesn't? LOL. So I click on this person's Facebook profile & it says she is on Play. So I click on that & find the page (link above) with a link about Gertrude's New Hat and Beading for a Cure. I was amazed and thankful too that more people will see the charity that has such a big place in my heart. Thank you so much for blogging about my hippo girl.
I'm busy beading my new doll for 2011. No new pictures yet as I've had one busy weekend. Friday I spent all day getting things together to teach a mixed media robot class to the Guilded Lilies. Thank goodness Chris helped me even though he was suffering from bronchitis. Then all day for the business meeting & class. Evening until I went to work (yes, I worked Saturday night) was compiling information into an Excel database so Chris could print out the spread sheet for the FABRICations show at High Road Gallery and print out individual name tags for each of the 192 entries. Sunday was my niece, Shannon, graduation from Capital Law School. Beautiful ceremony at the historic Ohio Theater and then a reception in the Rotunda of the Ohio Statehouse. Back home Sunday to print & organize everything. Then installation from 1-3 of FABRICations at the High Road Gallery here in Worthington Ohio. We were actually all finished by 3pm! I had help from Gigi, Rebecca, Susan, and Linda. Then I took Linda home with a little stop at Byzantium to put postcards out for out show. Oh, did I say I also watched LOST finale on Sunday night. Not sure about how I feel about that show. I've watched it since the first pilot & have loved it all. Now I've got to try to cope with no more LOST and the ending that I felt was too cliche. Oh well. Can we all be happy all the time.
This week is going to be just as crazy. Tomorrow our hospital lab is actually physically moving from the main hospital to a Medical Office Building. I have no idea what this is going to entail. I do know I have to stay over in the morning to give a hand. Plus I'm working 6 days in a row until next Monday. My niece Amanda is leaving Sunday morning to start Pharmacy School out in Phoenix & I'll miss her so much. Then next Tuesday I'll be heading to Lexington for the Tambour Beading class at the Univ of Ky. So lots going on...naturally with lots of beading to do also. Thank goodness I talked to Shawn from Whimbeads and got more seed beads to finish the doll for next year.
And I PROMISE to get a picture of Mother's Love soon.
