Trades are usually something relatively small in size that you've handmade, only real guideline given is that you (should) put your contact info like your name, email and website or blog address on the back of your trade. Last year I made fabric flower pins, I brought 50 or so and came home with a few, guess I was a little shy with the whole trading concept?! This year I knew I wanted to make something different. I had been collecting papers, music and art flyer's from...

Last but not least...Andrew Dyrdahl's: "Recycled Fabric Journal" workshop (might have just been my favorite workshop of the week?!) ....prolly cause Maria :) was my partner in crime: I had brought my Mom's 72' singer up to Port Townsend with me...but after meeting Andrew at the Friday night marketplace (where he sold out of his awesome monster dolls) he said there was no need to lug it all the way to class- that he had an extra (brand new in box) sewing machine for me to borrow....sa-weet! Andrew is SO generous and patient. Really, you'd think he'd been teaching at...

Jackers has been to the doctors and gotten an antibiotic and seems to be feeling much better already. Not too mention my Mom and I have painted the whole interior of her house and put in a new backsplash in...

Artfest Recap (part I)

art retreat artfest artfest 2011 artfest friend Events Janne Robberstad Personal photography port townsend spindlemaker teesha moore

Another Artfest has come and gone! I brought a good art friend (janne-spindlemaker from Norway) back home with me to stay for a few days. So, I've been a bit behind on photo uploading, hang tight...I'll probably be blogging about Artfest and my workshops over the next couple of days. It was great fun to have Janne meet my family and see my little creative space in my home and tour her a bit of Seattle. I feel so fulfilled from this years Artfest experience...and I'm beyond inspired with a million different art ideas flying through my head. I'm blessed to...
