She did super learning all her commands. We still need to fine tune a few ... but we'll get there. We'll start intermediate training in July.
May's Read was Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden. It was recommended to me by my Mother-In-Law when I told her how much I enjoyed The Kite Runner (also her recommendation). I have to admit that I do enjoy historical fiction and learning about other cultures. I am always surprised at how completely off most of my assumptions are. Anyway, I did, in fact, really enjoy this book. It is a fascinated glimpse into Japanese culture (albeit mostly pre-WWII). I will say there was one key plot point that I recognized/predicted when it happened, and it did make the ending less of a suprise than I suppose it could have been. Still, a good book, which flowed very nicely and was easy to enjoy.
Tracy tagged me and I am supposed to share 6 unimportant things about myself, so let's see...
1) I am a brunette, by birth and by bottle
2) I am very good at organizing things, but don't tend to be very organized
3) I really enjoy photography
4) I love roller coasters
5) I love milk chocolate, but really don't like dark chocolate at all
6) I would love to live by the ocean
I am supposed to tag 6 people, but I'm no good at choosing - so if you are reading this and you'd like to play along, consider yourself tagged!

So - these are the thread painting pieces I have received so far (I'm still waiting for one) in trade for my "Live your Art" pieces. They are each so unique and wonderful. Take a look ~

The collages are available for preview on Virginia Spiegel's Website:
There are 21 pages of gorgeous artwork. Something is sure to speak to you! The collages (all of which fit into an 8x10 frame) will be available for $80 on May 5th and $40 on May 6th. These are minimum donations - of course you can always give more!
My collage "Hope", which I featured on my blog back in January, is on the first page (the one that the link takes you to directly) - third one down. It is in my art studio, ready and waiting to go to its new home after the auction.
Please take a look at the collages, find one that you love, and support a great cause!
In the meantime, I'll continue to try to get this computer working at a point where I can share photos with you again soon.
