Who Knew Tape Could be so Much Fun

There is a new love in my life; it's name is electrical tape and I'm not ashamed to say it! I can't tell you how happy I am that I stumbled upon this tape.  It was a life saver. Just when I thought all was lost due to the wrist/hand injury and that I would have to leave RAD behind, along came my tape and all was right with the world once again.  OK, so maybe this tape discovery doesn't make the world a perfect place, but it's still a lot of fun!

We've been together eight days now and things are going well.  I know this wont be a long term relationship, but I think we still have a lot to learn from each other before we part ways. Next I'm hoping I'll be able to manipulate it into preconceived forms... I know, I know, everyone always says you can't change em, but it's worth a try!

Humboldt Arts Festival

The 1st (hopefully annual) Humboldt Arts Festival was last weekend and it was a great time. Two fabulous days of local bands and performers including Samba Amore, West African Dance, the Ya Habibi Dancers, New World Ballet, Strix Vega, The Bucky Walters, and many more kept the foot traffic consistent. The sculpture garden and ceramics demonstration area was awesome. Eel River Brewery was there with four local organic brews and 19 local vendors including the North Coast Metal Arts Guild (NCMAG) offered up a taste of plentiful creativity that the North Coast has to offer.

A big thanks to everyone who came out to support our local arts community. It was a pleasure to set up with the NCMAG and to debut the rings from the RAD project. I am pleased to say that they were met with some very positive feedback. I look forward to showing them again during North Coast Open Studios.
