Flat Stanley visits Auntie Stacey in Sebastopol

Flat Stanley learns about fritMy friend Dylan sent Flat Stanley to me in Sebastopol, California for a visit as part of his second grade literacy and community building project.

I couldn’t talk Flat Stanley into getting his face painted, so he watched while my husband and I did some fused glass art.  We use special glass that comes flat (Stanley’s favorite) in chunks or powder called frit, and in skinny sticks called stringers.

The different colors come from minerals and chemicals in the glass.  For example, cobalt makes blue.  Sulfur makes yellow.  Pink is a very expensive color because real gold goes into making it.

We spread out the flat glass on the kiln shelf, then sprinkle layers of frit.  When it’s melted in our kiln (a giant, really hot oven for heating glass or pottery) the glass gets red hot, and flattens into one big smooth piece.  After the glass anneals (cools slowly so it won’t crack) we’ll take it out ofthe kiln, clean it, cut it into a shape and make something out of it.  Maybe a bowl or a dish.  Do you think Flat Stanley would like it better flat?

Auntie Stacey Wins at Copperfield’s Zombie Walk

Stacey Zombie by Auntie Stacey Dennick's face painting

Auntie Stacey Zombie at the Sebastopol Farmer’s Market

You heard it hear first, Auntie Stacey Dennick won First Place in the adult category of the Zombie Moaning contest at Copperfield’s Books in downtown Sebastopol.

Every year Copperfield’s sponsors a Zombie Walk at several locations. Auntie Stacey was on hand today, Oct. 27th, for free zombiefication of anyone who wanted face painting.  After receiving instruction on proper lumbering, moaning and crowd interaction, a couple of dozen zombies, and as many groupies, terroried the Farmer’s Market. Then, it was time for the Zombie Walk Sebastopol 2013contests.

Auntie Stacey was a finalist in the lumbering contest, but lost to the Zombie Bros.  Undaunted, she pierced the competition with her soul searing moans.   Copperfield’s awarded prizes (books!) and served cookies.  What a great way to start the day!  Thanks.
