Party in Milwaukee...

When we had finished dinner, the Fusion girls and the GGS crew decided to make our way out to a barbaque hosted by Devin of Somerville Glassworks at his house. It was quite an adventure trying to find his place. The directions given to us were pretty much backwards and forced Greg to make many circles and U-turns (17 in count). When we eventually got there, we saw that Devin's pad was really cool and that he had a beautiful collection of artwork and glass.

Left: Bob Burkett chilling outside with Simon the dog. After years of working exclusively with silver and shibuichi, Bob is finally launching a brand-new line of fine pewter through Green Girl Studios. Not only is it absolutely stunning, but it's affordable as well! My favorite combination.

Right: My sister Cynthia caught off guard. It has been a lot of fun hanging out with my sister. We've already come up with loads of new ideas for various projects and products.

Left: Me and Katie Wall of Fusion Beads. I don't get to see very much of Katie Wall, so it is particularly nice to hang out with her. I'm hoping to finally make a trip out to Seattle and visit her there soon. It promises to a really specatcular time!

Right: A random shot of folks at the party hanging out and socializing around the fire. It was a really lovely night out.

Left: Another picture of Cynthia outside. She was looking at the koi fish that Devin keeps in a little pond with a little waterfall.

The game of the evening was "Re-name Greg." I think the top winner was, "Bucky" after "Bucky's Family Video Rental and Tanning."

I don't know, Liz. I'm afraid to ask.
