ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

GRAND PRIZE (for blogging AND signing up) SF HANDMADE BOOK
(similar to above)

SECOND PRIZES: SET of 3 ARTIST BLOX (similar to above) and
a gorgeous STERLING SILVER RING (siimilar to above)
As many of you already know, I'm scheduled to teach an amazing, intensive weekend workshop at KC Willis' Studio Retreat in beautiful Longmont, Colorado on December 5th & 6th. That's just two months away! I have been working on an amazing GUIDEBOOK for the journey for everyone who signs up - you will EACH be receiving a handmade book - Yes! An entire handmade book with places to take your own notes, and my instructions, directions, musings, and more. An invaluable resource and it will look beautiful on your coffeetables, I promise! Additionally I will be supplying most of what you will need to create 1 or more ENTIRE books over the weekend. If you've ever taken a class from me, you know how fun they are, and this one will be (and cover) SO MUCH MORE!

PLEASE help me to spread the word...this is all you need to do:

On your blog and facebook pages, please tell everyone about the workshop: Ragtags Studio Central: Artist Books and the Elements of Design. It will be held in KC'S studio December 5th and 6th, 2009. Tweet it, too. In your blog post, link to her visiting artist page here: http://studioretreats.ning.com/page/visiting-artists-classes

Once you've posted, come back here and leave me a comment, with a link back to your blog. Your name could be drawn to win one of several prizes - if you have signed up for the class and blogged it, you could win one of my original handmade books. Two second prizes will be a offered - a set of three of my altered artist blox - very cool for mantelpiece or bookshelf...AND one of my sterling silver art rings. The pix you see here are samples of all three prizes...as Adam Sandler would say, "Not too shabby!"

Please pass the word along or better yet, sign up for the workshop yourself. Come back here and comment with a link to YOUR blog post and I will do the drawing on November 15th.

Thank you all so much for helping me out with this - XXO
