Palmer was invited to compete in the RED BULL RIDE + STYLE SFO this weekend. It is a big fixed gear bike event that features riders from both coasts and as far away as Japan to compete… his brother Murphy joined him there to cheer him on…he made to the finals from a field of about 60 riders…good job Palmer!
footnote..that is not Murphy in the cowboy hat!
I know it has been along time..
sometimes life just gets in the way of the things you would rather be doing…
sometimes your mojo takes a vacation…
and sometimes all of that happens at once.
But please know I have been thinking about you all…and I have missed you.
I have some new classes planned for this spring and summer…
so check back to see where and when….
and I have some exciting news to share!!!!
I have an altered angel project in this issue of Scrapbooking and Beyond….along with two other talented artist..Jane Guthrie and Candy Rosenberg…they are on pages 54 thru 57 with instructions on how to complete your own…
My friend Jane Guthrie contacted me a few months ago and asked if I would be interested in an angel altered art project..I of course said yes.In a very short time my favorite guy in brown, rang my doorbell and handed me a tall box..Hello, angel! She was a big girl and as soon as we met I knew she would become my art angel!
I always wanted to be a working artist. My mom was a fine artist and I grew up watching her create so many beautiful things.her field of expertise was watercolors. I am not as nearly as talented as she was, but I would like to think that she would be so proud of the things I create.She serves as a constant source of inspiration to me and one day not long ago, I had an epiphany: I am an artist. So, this is my art angel…
I went to a farmers market on saturday morning…early..while the weather was still doable..they sell you a box for $10 and you can fill it up with what ever they have to offer that day…it was a big box.
I got peaches, nectarines, mushrooms. tomatoes and the yummiest fiji apples ever…
I gave some away to my son Palmer..
he’s into juicing and juices almost everyday…
I still had a mountain of those yummy apples…
so I made 8 little 4 inch mini apple pies…delicious!
then gave some of those away….
super easy… mix peeled chopped apples with, cinnamon, sugar, brown sugar, a dab of butter , add to pie crust, crimp edges, brush with egg wash, sprinkle with sea salt bake at 425 degrees 15 mins…you could use ramekins also…one apple per pie.
