Well, I am one of the most tired people in North American right now, but I
buzzed in to prevent anyone else from making my fauz pas! (I'll get caught up
later in the week when my body is back to normal!)

Last year after Ravensdale, I must have been swept away with the e***ment or
something and I  flagrantly violated my own strongly held principles for
posting someone else's information and put a thorough step-by-step description
of Dan Cormier's technique for making his cool cylinder pendants on the net.
Worse than merely that, and that is plenty bad enough, I never asked if I
could post it at all, AND I posted his personal contact information (phone,
address) too! (Actually, it must have been my evil twin, but since she did it
from my account, I have to be responsible!! ;^)  )

Let me be the only one who faces the mortification of having to apologize to
an artist you admire for babbling too much! Don't do likewise! I know it's
hard for the people who couldn't go to hear, but we who DID go paid for what
we learned, and some of the instructors will be making the same workshops
available "on tour" -- it's unfair to undercut their ability to teach or
publish about their techniques bu telling too much here. (Obviously some
techniques and tips and tools can be freely shared -- just THINK about what
you are posting before you do it!)

And Dan, once again, I am TRULY sorry for whatever brain meltdown caused me to
do what I did. It's too late to retract, but maybe cautioning others is a
small form of compensation.

Sherry,

If you read my report from Arrowmont on Tuesday (I think), you'll see that
I addressed that very issue.  And the report the next day says that I have
Kathy Amt's permission to distribute her methods.  Lynne Wardrop had told
her about my prior post, but Kathy's attitude is that she will do anything
to "spread the gospel of polymer clay".

Jeannine (who finally arrived home late Tuesday afternoon after spending
three days sucking up diesel fumes on the interstate highways).

Yes, and getting and POSTING that you got permission, Jennine (sp?) (sorry,
still zonked!) is precisely what those who post ought to try to do. I'm sure
that the little tips and hints and really basic techniques can be discussed
without a lot of worry, but things that someone TEACHES are a bit different,
especially as they get more and more like the work they also produce.

Good job!

Nap time!
