Butterfly Post

It's my favorite time of the year when the butterfly pavilion is open at our zoo! These butterflies love to land on people! It's really a beautiful sight to see!

I love making books. Here is one of my books from LK's class that I finished at home.
Note to self...sewing machine does not sew thru carpet tape :(

 This is what I came home with(top picture and bottom).
 This is what I added to it! I don't like the rug canvas showing- if I do this technique again I will spray paint it a dark color!!

 I love my pockets!!

Easter egg dyeing and more.....


We started out dyeing eggs, but we loved the colors so much we moved into dyeing paper towels!!

I can't believe I finally made it to Artfest...even with all the drama I left behind and came back to. I had a fabulous time!! It's like going to camp again...just for adults! I made some wonderful books!! Met a lot of creative people and I am feeling so inspired about what to do for work and my art! If only I didn't have a cold!!
 This was the last Artfest after 13 years! I can't believe it took me this long to get here!! It was so worth it!!!!

 My first workshop- Leather and Metal Journals!! What fun!!!

 A few examples from the instructor- I love his journals.
 Deer all around!!
What our dorms look like!!
