Mad/50 and a Mad Dash

I teach a class at PCC tomorrow (Basic Beading) and then at 4 am on Sunday, the Sweetie and I make a mad dash for the airport and a little sunshine in Tulum, Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula . . . I won't be posting for the week I'm gone, but you can look forward to cool travel photos of Mayan ruins and lovely beaches when I return . . .


And this is the Mad/50 shadowbox shrine as it stands now. I have a feeling there are a few more details to incorporate, but the basic structure is there. I used an old family photo given to me by Vicki Lind, as well as found crow feathers and old keys . . . it ended up being a very hopeful piece . . . in keeping with its installation on the Spring Equinox.

When we get back from our trip, Spring should be well on its way. Every year, the cherry blossoms are out by March 8 (International Women's Day) and even if the weather is crappy, Portland's celebration of this event - almost always on the Sunday closest to March 8 - feels like the beginning of hope!

Have fun during your vacation and don't forget to put a lot of sun cream! I have to say that I'm a little jealous ;)
