This year instead of solely doing Christmas ornaments Michelle opened the art swap up to any form or medium, the rules or rule I should say, were to hand make something you'd want to receive yourself. I procrastinated (again!)...I was so torn on what to make, at first I thought I'd sew something...but I couldn't seem to wrap my brain around anything specific that wouldn't be something everyone prolly already had.

Tracy Moore's metal journal workshop was just as fun as I thought it would be. I was a little overwhelmed...my brain felt like it was going to explode the entire day...being in a space with such creative people, the energy is intense. It's so cool. that's Tracy standing over the table helping a couple attendees...   what I wouldn't do to have the stash of stamp sets Tracy has- geesh! I said to myself when I registered for this workshop (just after artfest) that I was going to plan ahead and have design all mapped out. Yeah, that didn't happen...
