I'm off on another adventure! Funny how even with Glen's job situation and finances and the economy and all, there's still lots of artsy running around in my life. I'm SO thankful for these this! It's totally what keeps me sane! Guess that's why it's always my priority. :-)
So I do believe I'm all ready for Art Fest. Got my roomie gifts and all my supplies packed up. Also got some trades done. These one are pins made out of Fimo clay in the vein of the "Sea Monsters" theme...
Some other trades not in line with the theme...
These are little packages of recycled wool squares about 2 x 2 1/2" with a bit of lace or daisy trim. Oh and I also got some new Moo cards. I LOVE this batch probably because I actually used art I've created and not just pictures.
And then this year's Art Fest is going to be even sweeter because several local gals are going. Denise, Melissa, Diane, and Sue. All wildy talented artists and my friends (she said proudly!) These are the gals that are also members of a once-a-month (plus field trips!) art group called the "Council of Muses." Dawn and Marci are also in this group but aren't making it to Art Fest this year.
This stuff is amazing and in person? Breathtaking!
I also cheated and did a pre-Art Fest trade with Sue. Sue has two Etsy shops...here and here. She is SUCH a talented and prolific artist. Look at this amazing necklace she made out of a domino (please ignore the freckles).
I LOVE this piece! Thanks for trading with me early, Sue!
I'll take lots of pictures to share this adventure with you...and if you see me at Art Fest, please say howdy!!!
Okay...I'd better get...still have lots to do. Tonight was the first night of class (another Spanish class) so I'll probably be up late tonight packing and loading up the car!
Hasta luego mis amigos!
