mini playdate

Tuesday I had a lovely time having a mini playdate with Rayna Gillman. Most of my playdates are mini, due to the fact that they are limited to the time between kids being dropped off at school and picked up from school. Adding the hour there and the hour back from Rayna's house, this playdate was even more mini. But! We made the best of it, fit in a yummy Peruvian lunch and lot's of conversation. Rayna has a wonderful studio in an old Johnson and Johnson factory. I just love those old brick buildings, so much character. Of course I neglected to take a picture of this factory.... 
But I did take pictures of Rayna's studio and a little of our playtime. Rayna told me all about thermofax screens and we made some for me. 
She insisted that I make a trial run with one of my screens, and how can I resist getting my fingers in some paint if only for a minute. I can't wait to start playing with my new screens in my studio. Stay tuned! For now it's back to designing the 3rd grade playbill for my daughters musical next week.....

Well, I am officially jealous. A mini-play date with either of you would be fantastic.

I am with Gerrie. The thought of the two of you in the same room would put me over the moon. I am looking forward to seeing what your screens produce. I have yet to try thermofax, but soon! Have a wonderful weekend.
