Art-O-Mat Openning in Seattle

Last night I attended my first Art-O-Mat openning at Venue during the Ballard Art Walk. My husband and I were able to drop the kids off with my parents and head to the big city for a date. It was the first time in years that we have been to Seattle without visiting the zoo or science center and I realized how much of a small town girl I have become. We had a great time though. I met Clark, founder of Art-O-Mat and other artists. It was really fun to see people picking out their treasures from the machine. My husband bought a tiny oil painting of birds sitting on a line. He asked if he needed to buy my work, but I didn't really see the point of that. One woman bought a "Bad Boys Pincushion" and let out a scream when she openned it. The machine was very busy the whole time we were there. I, of course, didn't bring the camera and didn't think to have my husband take a picture with his phone. Maybe Clark will have his pictures up on flicker and I can ask to add one to my blog.
These are some more "Dreams" that I am making for them. I haven't come up with names. I have a feeling I wont have a chance to finish naming, labelling and boxing them until after we move, but they have been a fun distraction.
I'm finally starting to have faith that everything is going to work out with our house sale and purchase. It's only two weeks until we close and I'm going to Art Fiber Fest on the 22nd, so I'm going to have to really start packing soon. Speaking of that, I really should get back to work.

This sounds like so much fun. I miss having a viable art community nearby. Sigh.

Yeah, I'm so glad you were able to go to one of the openings. Great news about your house too.
