They Grow Up So Fast...

Congratulations to our budding architect...Nick, Mom and Dad are so proud of you! The ACE Mentor Program is a national program that pairs industry professionals with high school students interested in architecture, construction and engineering. Last evening the teams from 3 area schools (Hopkins, St. Paul Johnson and Washburn) competed in the first Twin Cities competition by presenting their designs for a parking facility that was "out of the box"...not just your old parking ramp! All of the designs and presentations were outstanding! It's exciting to see these young people so passionate. The Hopkins team won the trophy...but Nick WON one of two scholarships and we are so happy for him!
...thanks for indulging this proud back to the grind for me...The studio is a mess as I flit from one project to another frantically getting ready for The Hopkins Rug Artist's Hook-In on Saturday! If you are in the area...please come join the fun at Calvary Lutheran Church, 7520 Golden Valley Rd in Golden Valley, MN...from 9 til 2! Have a great day ~L

Artist/Designer Right to Livelihood...

I've been off the computer for a few days...working on goodies for upcoming shows...
This in hand...I ventured out thru blogland to visit friends sites and OH blood started boiling. I need to choose my words carefully here...I'm very passionate about the issue of copyright's's how I and many of my friends put food on our tables... I could really go off on a rant here...but for now I will bite my tongue and refer you to Lori's eloquent word's on her blog Notforgotten Farm ~L
