Hi Everyone!
The doctor put me on not 1 but 2 antibiotics today. I feel like some one ran over me and then backed and did it again. I have slept the afternoon away but before that I was emailing a lady by the name of Lisa Binkley. She is an amazing fiber/bead artist that uses my Nicole's BeadBacking. She sent a  photo of her latest piece. It is simply stunning, as is all of her art. Lisa resides in Waunakee, Wisconsin, however, her art travels and has been featured in the Smithsonian, Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Bellevue Arts Museum. She is an instructor and is preparing for some February classes and I wanted to share them with you.
