Went to FREE art class today at...

library in S. Deerfield, M.A. where I live half of each month. Was fun. Made art boxes.  I also talked briefly to the teacher about me teaching a class or two there for cash.  Need to talk to the director of the library about this.  Earlier in week took a writing class down at cafĂ© in building am staying at for $25 for two hours. We wrote short stories or rather story openers. fun. Also attended a book signing and met the author and bought one of his books on autism and how he deals with it. Inspiring! I go back to NY Monday as need to water my plants. Hope they made it. .Are of the tough variety so trust did.

The High Cost of Cheap...



Cheap is not always better. Read the book 'Cheap' and find out why. I am reading the book by Schell and am enjoying it. If you make hand made art and jewelry like me, then you can appreciate it when people will pay more for quality,durability and hand made versus factory line jewelry. Most unfortunately want a deal and cheap and thus trade beauty for ugly crap. What do you think?
