July 2009 ~ Utah ~ 4
While working in the Wire-Sculpture warehouse, I spent some time sorting more than 600 druzy cabochons into size categories and just had to sneak a picture to share some of the 'things-to-come' with you!

During my recent trip, to work with the Wire-Sculpture team in Utah, I spent a lot of time in the warehouse with some great folks like Heather.

Of course, our trip to Acadia would not be complete without a visit to the unique shops in Bar Harbor, or my favorite dinner!!!

Walking around several areas of Acadia National Park, one always can find a variety of things to take inspirational pictures of, such as the roots of this tree that had been knocked over by winter storms.

While teaching at The Beaded Moose, I also have the opportunity to visit with my brother and his family. A favorite side-trip is to take the lovely drive from Bangor to Acadia National Park.

One of my favorite places to teach is The Beaded Moose
in Bangor, Maine. (Dora Petry's phenomenal bead store, on Outer Hammond Street.) Not only does she carry a huge variety of supplies for both the beader and the wire-wrapper, but Dora also has a large, friendly work area. You can stop by to take a class or just to find a quiet place to sit, visit and work on your latest creation for a while. (Dora is also a well-known animal rescuer and her shop is home to several, wonderful therapy animals too.)
