Have you ever wanted to make jewelry for yourself or someone special? I'm teaching a jewelry making class starting in April--so you have until March 24 to sign up. In this class, students will learn how to create sterling silver necklaces, bracelets and pierced earrings that you'll be able to wear home on Day 1. Some basic techniques to be covered are making loops and coils, using a jig, attaching hardware, and oxidizing and texturizing silver. Using silver chain, wire, beads and hardware,… Continue

Acrylic on 12" vinyl, "Dynagroove"
So, last week's hike took it all out of me, or I should say, my knee! It was swollen and sore all week and is just now starting to feel kind of normal again. Needless to say, we didn't go hiking this week. This totally bums me out, because we haven't missed a week in months and it's all thanks to my aging body! Getting old truly sucks! We did take a couple… Continue

I plan to continue the hunt and I will of course post more photos.
So as of my last posting about the seemingly boring subject of hunting for the the Barelas Acequia/Creek/Ditch, and any possible tunnels that may be involved, I have come across some new information,… Continue

We're starting to take bookings for this summer's Doggie Washes! Dog washes are a great way to help your group raise some money. Obviously we're looking for groups who benefit Albuquerque's animal community, but heck call the store regardless and maybe can work something out =o)
Here's how it works.
You put together a loyal crew of washers who can work hard and have fun.
Pick the date for the event. Weekends work the best from 11-1pm.

NOB HILL FLYING STAR--It is hard not to notice the torn cushions in this Flying Star. Every booth seems to have them. And it has not escaped the attention of the Morning Coffee Detectives. I don't want to sound overly concerned about something that is obviously out-of-sight as soon as one sits down, but I was determined to get to the bottom of it...so to speak.
The morning busser had a plausible explanation which… Continue

Sonny Bravo is a tender, unusually smart fifteen-year-old who is living with his vivacious mother in a large city where intense prejudice is not just white against black, but also brown. When Sonny's mother, Silvia, suddenly marries an Okie building contractor named Cloyd Longpre, they are uprooted to a small apartment building, Los Flores. As Sonny sweeps its… Continue

I had an unusual Saturday night this week. I was on Twitter when I noticed an invitation from Gwyneth Doland of The New Mexico Independent
to come to a live webcast at the Roundhouse in Santa Fe where she was live blogging with some other folks. Having never done either of these things before, I was intrigued, and so off I went to join them in live cyberspace. Live? Not being one to even think IM was anything but an annoyance while I am… Continue
