(I do realize that this is not the best pic of me, but it is the best pic I have of the outside of Mrs. O'leary's. Please don't judge.)
I got up yesterday morning at 5:30 and was on the road to Wichita by 6:45. I was taking a class at Mrs. Oleary's (a 13 hour class to be exact.) For those mixed media art lovers who have not had the pleasure of visiting Mrs. O'leary's I encourage you to do so. Joni and her husband Mark are 2 of the nicest, most hard working people I have ever met. The class was amazing, crammed full of information and technique. I love working with metal and this class was a necklace pendant sampler with lots of metal components. I actually used a torch, scary I know, but awesome. I cut, punched, soldered, used patina and so much more. Thanks Mark for the 5 hour energy and escorting me to my car to make sure I was safe. Lovely place and even more lovely are the people who make Mrs. Oleary's an amazing place to visit.
