WOYWW. AUGUST 5

Last week i was unable to post and the special take home from my fabulous art retreat week with 11 women friends i met on line 6 years ago was poison ivy. By the time I arrived home it enteredmy lymphatic system and was popping up all over my body in an itchy rash. Actually i thought it was shingles. That would be far worse. Now on Prednesone so as this is the start I am wide awake. No desk to show but here is a couple of photos from our art retraet on a mountain 4,000ft high in North Carolina.

Making Citro sol images.

Using heat to make stencils

Boiled books. Or how to mistake poison ivy foy a pretty leaf shape. Every group need a dumb smuck

 

 

The gathering area

Kitchen with more boiled books waiting for the pot.

 

So have agreat day visiting everyone.

  1. Monica, regardless of the poison ivy, it looks like most everyone was having a wonderful time. I DO hope you get better soon, because this sounds very. very serious.

    I have never heard of boiling books. Seems weird to me. Happy WOYWW from #2.

  4. I don't think we have poison ivy here. How scary that it can do that to you! I hope you had a good time despite your infection. 11

  10. Oh dear, hope you are improving each hour. Now what on earth are boiled books? I am thinking fabric withj onion skins or something similar. Sounds as if the retreat was full of great things - think I need a move over there.
