I feel like I have an art hangover...if that's even possible?! Artfest was full of amazing experiences and again I learned a ton about my inner artist. Got home from Artfest mid day Sunday with Janne and Elizabeth. We headed up to Capitol Hill to peruse Dick Blick for one last hoo-rah of art supply shopping and grabbed some lunch at Elliot Bay Brewery. Shortly there after I had to say goodbye (for now) to Janne as she heads to Mexico for some much needed sunshine and R&R. Elizabeth headed back to chilly Alaska yesterday morning...I teared up a bit...

This year I knew I wanted to make something different. I had been collecting papers, music and art flyer's from...

It's coming along quite nicely. at least I think so... I'm getting comfortable, moving things around and organizing my "stuff" dude- we crafters are darn near hoarders or maybe it's just me?!
