So, hey. I’m sick! I’m miserable! Today may be the day I do that “walk to the end of the driveway and call it good” walk I’ve been saving and projects and posts for the rest of the week look unlikely. Ugh. But I have news. Specifically, tickets went on sale for our next Craft Cabinet event! Brenda Ponnay is teaching water color. So excited! It’s a technique I’ve always wanted to learn, and I’m still going to try it even though I have zero artistic ability. I can’t draw well, but I can at least listen to what she has to say about mixing and blending colors and use that in projects that take advantage of my ruler-wielding ways. Plus, friends! I get to meet friends!

We’ll be supplying all the food, drinks, and supplies, so it’s a pretty good deal. You can also bring your own craft, too, of course. We’re easy that way.

You can find out more about tickets here and more about Brenda here.

    Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well! Take good care of yourself, and hopefully tomorrow will be better!

    That sounds like a fun Craft Cabinet! I wish I lived out there so I could go – even though I have a feeling I’m even worse than you when it comes to anything artistic. ;-)

    It’s a GREAT deal. I’ve already whined on Andrea’s blog, but I’ll do it here too. :) If I could only get such a great deal on a plane ticket!

    So caught up in my self-pity I forgot to say – feel better!

  3. Oh how I wish I could go. I’ve always wanted to take a watercolor class! Feel better! this has been the worst season for illness that I can recall in a long long while. I had a monster cold in the fall, and just got over another monster cold. ALL DONE with the sickies!

  4. Lisa says:

    I signed up yesterday! I will be there!

  5. Wish I lived in the area – sounds like lots of fun!

  6. Brenda is awesome! I’m bummed that I’m not going to be able to make it this time. My job is currently super stressful and I’m working late on Fridays to finish our new weekly magazine. Hopefully things will mellow out in a month or two so I can make it to the next one. Drink some wine for me!

    Looking forward to it. (You know — inasmuch I look forward to any large social gathering.) ;)

  8. I so wish I could go!

    And I’m glad you’re going to take a break to let yourself get better. Gotta put your own oxygen mask on first before you can help anyone else, you know?

    I always think these sound like fun–this one, especially. Although, I’m not sure I would want to try my hand at any sort of art in the company of strangers (especially those with blogs that are so very lovely). Yikes.

    In other news, hope you’re feeling better soon. And a happy Easter weekend to you . . .

    Feel better soon!
    Wow, I love that water color.

  11. Erin says:

    I hope you feel better soon! I also wish I lived in the area so that I could attend!

  12. HOORAY! I’ve Read SAJ – Brenda’s blog for years! It’s cool to see two of my bloggy “friends” together in one place.
    Like you, Brenda is super talented and creative! And like you, her child is adorable!
    Sometimes I wish I lived in CA, instead of Northwest Indiana…{sigh}

Hi! I’m Jules.

I used to be an attorney, but it made me grumpy. Now I write about life, sweet and savory, as a wife and mother to two small boys. My knowledge of dinosaurs knows no bounds.

You can read more, including the meaning behind the name Pancakes and French Fries here. And, yes, I really am phenomenally indecisive.
