Hello! Miss JAM here!
Picket Fences is starting this November (running through April) as a "specialty night", ONE night a month @ jam. (The first Thursday of each month from 7-9pm to be exact!)
It's invitation only & I've invited leaders, pioneers, "rustic couture", & specialty niches that are not usually found all in one place. (there is a list below of who's on list to be invited as of now.)
We are asking people to bring canned food to donate so that we practice giving to those who need it most regularly.)
Think:: Crusty artisans breads, homemade jams, local honey, tea, and specialty cookies. Local pastries & cheeses. Handmade organic chocolates & brittles - locally produced. Vintage! Iron pieces! Welded items, fancy pasta, seasonal crafts. China, rebars, baskets & buckets! Fresh flowers, bottles, soldered items - everyone can bring canned or non perishable items for donating and giving back to local food banks.
We are always thankful. Live music & fantasy lights for you.
Picket Fences - leaning on each other,
supporting local friends, giving back to those who need most,
soul touching & spirit awakening!!

With music too!
Eiffel Tower Sketching & Watercolor
My dear friend Shea from Austin Texas came to visit and jammed-away
with us - look at her sweet face below!
Nancy Mills of Five Times Blessed swept us away to Paris with a sketch & watercolor class of the ever-so-romantic Eiffel Tower!
Nancy brought the music too . . . we were able to place our
sketches on 1920's music sheets!
Tons of tiny straight lines later . . .
And to think Nancy sent me a picture last months with message attached saying,
"Do you think I should teach the jammers how to sketch this & we can
watercolor and glitter it too?!"
