Just a quick note...

I totally lucked out this year - the housing that I was counting on fell through at the last minute and I seriously thought I wasn't going to be able to go to Tucson this year.

Then one night I was reading through my "Tucson Gem Show" Google Alerts and saw a "room for rent" notice from...are you ready...Kate McKinnon!!!

Yes - that Kate McKinnon - of the books, workshops and http://katemckinnon.com/

This is one of my favorite pieces from her Gallery pages - it "is" Kate - structural with a touch of whimsy. A fine silver castle ring with a move-able sunshade!

Kate is known for her book Structural Metal Clay...but keep your eyes open for her latest from Interweave Press - due out this Spring.

...and as if that weren't enough Greg Ogden and Andrew Thornton are also staying here - they are in town to represent Green Girl Studios (Cynthia just had baby number two and is at home) at the Too Bead True Blue and Tucson Bead Shows.

Did I mention that we are 2 blocks from that show and about 10 minutes from all the others...great location!

OK - just had to gush for a minute -this house is FAB! Good Night!
