Happy Chinese New Year!

Well it was a very happy day for Carol and I. We had such wonderful support today, at our ART CLINIC grand opening, from the art community and friends here in our little Santa Ynez valley. We are basking in the glow! Thank you everyone who came or sent their best regards. We appreciate it....I am overwhelmed...Syd
Here are some of the highlights of the day....
This is how things started .You find your Chinese zodiac and add it to your name tag. Then we had doorprizes to sign up for, examples for workshops, some of our work and some zen sarcasm...You are unique...just like everyone else" and "If at first you don't succeed...don't try sky diving".

We gave out extra credit for Asian attire. Colleen had an amazing outfit that she brought home from her trip to Viet Nam and China. This was worn by the hill people in Viet Nam. There was other very impressive Asian attire.

We had some well wishing gifts. This is a hand embroidered set of towels from Colleen
and some Asian metal pieces from Ari. Thank you! And a special thanks to my dearest friend Colleen. She put back on her "catering hat" to get things under control in the makeshift kitchen. And Carol's cousin, Teresa, cooked up some amazing Asian dishes for our table. So sweet of her. Thank you! I didn't even get a picture of the table....hope Carol did....
