Where I stood, in a wet alley

puddle feet

Yesterday we hung out with friends at Dally in the Alley, my favorite hippie fest.   Lots to see, lots to listen to, lots to eat, lots of fun!   We managed to miss the rain, though there was plenty of it earlier.   Chelsea and ClayFreaks signrevolution sign

Where I Stand Sunday is an ongoing photo essay examining the different places Lynn Krawczyk spends her life standing. Too often we take for granted the everyday places we spend our lives walking on. If you’d like to join her by posting a photo on Sunday of places you’ve been on your blog/photo hosting site/website, leave a comment on her Sunday posts telling her where she can find you/your photo and she’ll add a link to her sidebar so others can find you. I am one of those that Lynn has badgered into joining her, I have changed it to “where I stood”, because right now I’m sitting in front of the computer, not standing anywhere.

Carving erasers

eraser carving at 212

I got to teach eraser carving (to make your own rubber stamps) at the Two Twelve Art Center in Saline last night.   It was a small, but dedicated class.   I was fortunate enough to work with very enthusiastic students.

Tools were laid out, paper was everywhere, erasers were carved.   Everyone made beautiful stamps, I’m very proud of these guys.

coffee and cake

Coffee and cake were consumed, also.   Such wonderful cake.     Thank you for the opportunity and the cake,   Kat.

If you would like to learn how to carve erasers into rubber stamps, I will be giving a workshop at the Northville Art House on Saturday, October 9th from 1:00 to 3:00.   The cost is $20.   You can register and/or find out about all their classes here.

Where I stood, cleaning out a TV repair shop

Mark’s friend invited Mark to come take what he wanted from an old TV repair shop.   The shop has been closed, leaking, and getting moldy for many years.   We looked at lots of smelly stuff.

There wasn’t much that was old enough or cool enough to interest Mark, but he did manage to fill the big van.   Twice.

This will give you an idea of some of the stuff we looked at.
