On a cozy  November night last week, students met in the handsome Wythe Hotel for the very first LDBA Adult Arrow Making Workshop. The 2 hour class (extended to 4 hours), included History, assemblage, painting, Champagne, laughter, notch making, and mind-blowing talent and creativity. We finished the workshop with rounds of archery, shooting targets on a bow I fashioned from Bamboo. The images above tell all, and the next workshop will be held in January 2014. Sign up yourself or loved ones (what a great gift!!) for this unique and fun class!
In other news, stay tuned for LDBA’s picks for ‘BEST GIFTS EVER‘ and purchase this Saturday to celebrate and support Small Business Saturday.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all, we hope you have a perfect day, and remember: XOXO LDBA LOVES YOU !

On Sunday, LDBA packed up party supplies, paint, sticks, feathers, string and some (fantastic) helpers and headed to SOHO for Luca’s sixth Birthday party!  A custom painting by Luca’s pals, ‘Bows and Arrows to go’, plus crowns and warrior stripes made by Luca’s guests, were all part of this fun-filled celebration. Luca’s mom made a pastel lizard cake (his favorite animal) which got gobbled up too fast for me to photograph, and we finished the party with rounds of archery. (Reed Anderson made the fabulous target in another class, which Luca now has in his room). Thanks to Lindsay Mound and Bryan Norvelle for all your help.
