this past year, i have been finding the little creative girl that lives inside me. and i am having so much fun! now that i have a sewing machine i have a new found LOVE of fabric. i mean really, who knew there was so many wonderful patterns out there?
i am excited because the ArtFest brochure is out. as i looked through the workshops and talked to a friend on the phone about it today, i realized that creating a schedule that includes time for creating is really important to me.
in the spirit of ArtFest, i also want to share that Kelly has opened up an etsy shop! (finally!) go check it out and show her some love. she is selling her originals and a little bird told me that she is going to have some prints up for sale soon!
also, i just learned that another ArtFest friend has started a blog and she will be teaching at ArtFest as well. check out Tracie Lyn Huskamp's blog and her art. i bought one of her pieces at vendor night and i enjoy looking at it every single day. it reminds me of what is important in life...home...friends...love.
here are pictures of the purses i have been making with my new sewing machine. (forgive the lighting...i finished the last one this evening and just wanted to finally share them. if you click on them you can learn a little more info and see a bit more detail.)
hope you are feeling some creative energy this weekend.
(and the computer is still sick. but i have installed the camera software onto my laptop. and i will be backing up pictures from now on. i promise.)
