THe auction project

Joe's school is having an auction to raise money for programs at school.  Each class is responsible for making a "Class project."  I was feeling a little crafty, so I signed up to work on his classes project.  The children have to be involved with making it. 

This is where I found my idea.   I really thought this was cool.  I like the look of it.  

So, I had each kid paint a tile and then had it fired.  Then I built the coat rack around the tiles.  I am really happy with how it turned out.  The auction is Saturday night.  We will see how high the bids go!!

The name of his school is Highlander.

Ski Trip 2011

 Our little cabin in the base of Palo Duro Canyon, near Amarillo.

 Let's just say I threw our Joe's socks after this hike.  Fun muddy mess.

 Supper fun skiing at Sipipu Ski mountain near Taos, NM.

 Ended our trip at Cadillac Ranch.  Very cool, 10 cars buried nose down off the side of the highway.  You can stop and spray paint a design on the cars.  Very cool!
