Geliciously Happy!

Last night, I held my first Gelicious Printmaking workshop at the Art Coop at 425 Market Place Antiques. It was so much fun. I had seven students, including friends, their friends, and (drumroll please) my Delta Zeta sorority sister, Christy. We last saw each other in 1992 when we both graduated from the University of Illinois. She lives in New York, but was in town visiting her sister and she heard about my workshop through Facebook. (Even though FB drives me crazy at times, it does have its moments!)

Here we are doing our cheesiest sorority girl pose.

I couldn't have asked for a sweeter and more fun group of students. I only had to do a few quick demos on the Gelli printing plate and they were all grabbing paints, experimenting with pattern tools, and rolling those brayers like the wind.

What a great way to end the week, making art with friends. I feel so grateful. 
Next week is our Spring Break. I think I will do just that, take a break. My plans? Read, have a glass of wine (or two), and simply breathe in the people I love.  


  1. what FAB pics of you and your sorority sis Jenny! Looks like you rocked your class-look at all those happy,busy ladies! I'll have a glass of wine (or two) with you from afar. Cheers!

  2. Looks like you had a wonderful time. Happy Easter and spring break :-)

    1. Thanks Lynette... Happy Easter to you too!

  3. What a great time that must have been. So neat that you had your old friend there. It's a funny coincidence that I ran into my university roommate at that fashion show we went to. So good to hook up with people who were important in our lives at another time. Wishing you a very good weekend and relaxing spring break. I clink my wine glass against yours. xo

  4. Had to pop in just to tell you that my sister, now 71, is a DZ Girl, too!

  5. Congrats on your workshop!!! What a feeling of accomplishment you must have. And to share that with your sorority sister.. how fun was that! Love the cheesy pose. We all did that one, right? Enjoy your bit of R&R and see you back here soon!
