Peace out! and a gig coming up

So busy forgot to report

I have been so wrapped up in finishing the Peace Puzzle that I neglected my blog reports, although my Facebook page(s) have been updated very often with all the excitement. Since last blog post, I finished the book, sent to publishers, got it back with posters and mailed out the entire print and books to all the participants. Easier said than done!
I am also very pleased to report that due to the upgrade to Priority International mail seems nearly all packages have now arrived at their destinations. At least I don't have any complaints as of yet.

Here are some pictures of all the exciting mailing and such. First I got the books, and immediately rolled up prints and books and mailed them out. Good thing the USPS sorting facility now accepts many packages straight in their bulk hub.

Gig alert!

And of course the upcoming gig! Scottsdale ArtFest 2015 is coming up this very weekend and I have been matting and framing and loading the truck. The wind is howling right now and I am hoping for calm sunny weather this coming weekend.
Scottsdale ArtFest is held downtown Scottsdale in the Arts Center/Museum beautiful grounds with walkways, water fountains and the famous LOVE sculpture right across from my booth. Booth number is 158 across from the Arts Center. 


Stay in touch!
