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.

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...

Because it's Wednesday, and I heart you all...a glorious i-phone self portrait ...of my new "DO!" I LOVE it. move over pig-tails, I have a big girl hairstyle now, thanks to Elysia at Skyn Salon. Block chop in the back, longer pieces in the front...and short bangs! Other news, we're still anxiously awaiting word from the lender if we'll be able to close on the new house before Thanksgiving...keeping our fingers crossed we do, because our lease kind of expires Dec.6th and it'd be nice to slowly move out over a couple days.  Can I just tell you all how...

A little handmade journal for Lacy of lacylike...because I think she's awesome. AND because she will be VERY missed at Artfest this year :( front cover of journal... back cover of journal... pages are made from recycled goods and fabric scraps a few pages have inspirational quotes; "Soar with your strengths and never look back..." fabric pocket & a birdie with balloon (sewn stitches for the string) each page has a little bit of something to get the creative juices flowing... and enough blank space for Lacy to add her magic. You can see all pages on Flickr here. And if...
