Colorful Expansion

“hue are you?”, my little shop, expanded a bit to make room for more art and interaction. My friend Kittie Munro helped make the space more comfy with her couch that she let me put my hand dyed hand woven “synthesis series” fabric on the pillows. These colorful pillows are available in the shop as well. Kittie and fate visited to check out the larger space; it is wonderful to have such supportive friends about!

The Sierra Club Sponsors Common Ground

A "green" themed night was full of celebration as The Sierra Club sponsored Common Ground to include the grand opening of their office on the Eco Commons. Gabby shared with everyone their mission and great freebies like the chance to plant trees!

The Common Ground Photo Op continues to be a fun element of the evening!

University of Washington Certificate Program in Virtual Worlds

Some of you know that I am earning a certificate in Virtual Worlds through the University of Washington. It is a three-term program that will explore all aspects of virtual worlds through in world lectures, guest speakers, like Logan Linden (see picture), field trips in Second Life and other VW, lots of reading, building an educational wiki, and personal project. I am one of 25 students from all over and it has been great to discover how they want to use virtual worlds in the future.

Grand Opening of the Treasured Isle Mall

We had the Grand Opening of the Treasured Isle Mall with live music and dj dancing produced by Merc and Jarhead! It was a happy affair with oldtime pals and new friends. My shop, "hue are you?" was blessed with visitors and sales. Thank you all for your support and kindness!
Afterwards, I rested in my new chair and chatted with my friends. So much more color to come!

Shiny New Year

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing
Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands
Take it, take it
There's no time to cry
Happy, happy
Put it in your heart
Where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

We had a very Happy New Year party at Common Ground with our Shiny theme! Everyone enjoyed our new Photo Op, Photobooth, and Slideshow! Let's Shine in O9!
