I am converted

This past weekend I was able to attend a Paper Cowgirl Workshop. Now, if you have seen my work you know that I am a jewelry/metals person. Paper has never really grabbed me.

I took two of the workshops. FUN FUN FUN! My sweet and precious (cough* hack*) cousin, Kristi was forced to volunteer to be my "paper partner". We had a blast. I am a true convert. I love paper. This workshop reminded me of vacation Bible school when I was a kid. Glue. Scissors. Stamps. More glue. and lots of laughing (we even got cupcakes). The worst part of all, is getting your palate wet, and then being put in the most wonderful scrapbook store I had ever seen, and knowing you couldn't buy everything you wanted. It's like a kid in a candy store. I even came away with a bumper stick for my (soon to be bought and new car-hence the wreck last week) "I know Jan Thomason". I feel so special now.


My television piece aired on Texas Country Reporter this past weekend. Some people were able to see it, some (such as myself) had their DVR set up to record TCR and got an older version of one of their other shows. I am not sure if the DVR "knows" that I wasn't home since I was taping it, and therefore will have to buy one of my Just seems to me, that anyone that wasn't home, and DVR'd that show, got an older show taped. sigh. Anyways, the piece was fantastic. The camera shots were fantastic. I have a huge gear clock that all the gears move. I kept trying to move the gear clock, I felt it was in the camera man's way. After seeing the finished piece (at my cousin's house) I understand why he wouldn't let me move it. It will be on later. They have alot of their older shows on it. The show highlighted my pocket watch collages, and how I make them. It was very flattering for me.
