Patti Edmon Altered Attic: Altered Magnetic Connections

Altered Magnetic Connections

Evolving as an altered artist, particularly working here in the Altered Attic, can produce an isolation common to those of us who work alone. And, the downside of living with an auto-immune disorder (is there an upside? that's another story) is a major energy drain so I have to prioritize and make every effort count.
When I'm in need of a people/connection/chocolate fix, Third Street Stuff is high on the list. Our graphic design business (EdmonDesign - see links) is located above the fabulous store and coffee shop, also it's one of the unique and most interesting aspects of Lexington. They brew freshly roasted coffee (those Jim's chocolate chip cookies are worth a trip), exude personality plus, and, well, it's just the warm, upbeat kind of place writers, artists, students, musicians, mothers and business people hang out to chat, enjoy the wireless, shop and engage in the community. Hendrick is the man; not only is he one of the coolest people I've ever met, his personality is only topped by his service behind the bar.
Today I stopped in with some altered art magnets, journals, collage and other art pieces that I picked up at Studio 603, after last week's Gallery Hop. Pat, the owner of Third Street Stuff, loved my magnet art and she placed an order. On the spot. The oatmeal-chocolate chip-walnut cookie wasn't bad either - Oh Happy Day.
