Bear and Bird and Steampunk

I had a great time at the opening of the Me Me Me show at Bear and Bird Gallery. A local reporter wrote this small piece about the gallery show and I was so honored that my work was called beautiful and that among 150+ artists I was mentioned. Also I want to thank Amanda for being so nice to me and my hubby. She really was the hostess with the mostess, she was awesome as she greeted everyone of us, chatted and snapped pics while the large crowds moved around her.  
She has invited me to participate in a workshop this summer.  I will keep you all posted. 

On to another topic

This is what I do when stuff breaks in my house. I have had this broken camera in a storage box and I wanted to see what the inside looked like so I took it apart. I was amazed by all of the gears, it looks so steampunk!!  For those of you that don't know what Steampunk means, its a merge of victorian, sci-fi, fantasy and technology. If I had the knowledge or skill, all my gear (electronics) would be done in a steampunk style.

 This is a great example of steampunk! 
sorry-I found this picture a while ago but I don't know who to credit
whoever you are you do awesome work!
