So many new little time!

Hi! Happy Friday to you!

What an exciting week! My family from Utah is visiting and Courtney and Tom's son, Isaac Russell performed in LA then next at the Crystal Palace in Bakersfield and then at the Midstate Fair in Paso Robles. I went to the Bakersfield performance and what a wonderful night! After a trip to finalize all of his contracts with Columbia Recording Co. and Sony we had a celebration dinner for Isaac and offer congratulations to this 17 year old talented boy! His current CD is RURU Elizabeth and there will be a new one out after the first of the year.

Unfortuantely, this CD is sold out, but you can still get songs from it on iTunes and on his website, which I cannot remember right now! Sorry--will add it later!
And--the other exciting thing that happend while they were here is that Tom helped me select an new laptop computer! We're busy now getting everything loaded onto it, and then of course, the kids said, "Grandma Bonnie--you must start a facebook page..." so now I'm blogging, facebooking, emailing and trying to keep up the when am I going to shop for the store, work in it and keep the displays changing???! (And by the way, I didn't even know that these words were verbs!!)
Ah, technology...will it never end? I need a nap.
Hope your Summer is going well--come over here and cool off! It's LOVELY...
Happy day, Bonnie

This is SO Exciting!
The beautiful "Live Artfully Magazine" has a lovely feature article about Birds of a Feather in it's current issue! My personal thanks to Jenny Mallott for including my little store in her publication and I hope that you will have an opportunity to read it for yourself! You will find many articles about people and places on the Central Coast as well as recipes, featured artists--even a contest in this issue! I have some copies for sale at the store for $5.75 each and they are also available at other locations in and around SLO County. For more information, please visit Jenny's website:
Also included in this issue is a feature on my friend, Patti Erwin. What a gifted artist she is--and one of the nicest people you could know! We both started this blogging thing together and a visit to her blog is quite a treat:
Make yourself a cup of tea, stretch out on a cozy couch and savor every word in "Live Artfully!"
