All the local talent
Greetings everyone! When I first started this blog, I commented on how there is so much talent in our community that is unappreciated or taken for granted. I'd like to focus on recognizing each and every person I find in the area that has their own unique talent . One at a time of course and it's going to take a long time to make it through the realm of creativity we have! Please do recognize too, that http://www.honeywellcenter.org/ is a great source of what's happening in the arts all around us. They are dedicated in spreading the word and letting us all know how and when to educate and entertain us in many ways. But, last night (& other times) I took a class on bracelet making with Candice Cooper. Ok, so she's local for US, but she's internationally known to others in the beading and crafting world. To take it lightly that she does classes here sooooooo inexpensively is an understatement. What would one pay to attend a really great artist workshop anywhere else? Anyway, I really love my bracelet project and hope that her business thrives-doing classes in our town is a crumb off the cupcake for her, but I really appreciate it. Her current blog is http://candiecooper.typepad.com/ so check it out for upcoming events.
