ITS GONNA BE HARD TO PUT THIS ALL IN ONE POST!
But my trip to Seattle and Artfest in Port Townsend was amazing-I think it best to go to my Flickr site to see all the pics of my colleagues work-the weather was beautiful -the students topknotch, the experience magical. ( ArtFest is the premier alternative arts fest Ive been so lucky to teach at many times!) My classes this time were Catharsis Mark MAking Book , Fabric Paint Party and Pen Addiction. Teesha and Tracy Moore make this event memorable-on Thursday night there was an Iron Chef Artist event-20 artists have 45 minutes and the same supplies to create a masterpiece-poor barbies-mine was decapitated
THANK YOU to all my adventurous artist /students who invite me into their interpretations and creations-what an honor to meet you and work with you. again I pinch myself when I see the artwork-Im so inspired to now make more art-inspired by you all! Oh and I am returning to JOURNALFEST this October-a smaller event there-instead of 500 there are only 150 artists all concentrating on creating the most outrageous journals ever-Im teaching Shimmer and Bling and Letterista Style Lettering ( OH and PSST! howd ya like to buy a brand new Letterista Style Tshirt? ) more info to come...
I Havent even touched on my visit to my daughter part-OK-I promise to Blog more and more-soon soon

Im pretty packed-and excited to wing my way to Washington and ArtFest in beautiful Port Townsend . Of course I'll be seeing my lovelies Sarah and Kristin before and after -but I'll be teaching THREE fun classes-Catharsis-Mark Making Book, Fabric Paint Party and finishing it up with Pen Addiction! Of course there will be plenty of pictures of all this-and I will be participating in the Iron Chef art fest event-Cooking art up. I also have scored a brand new to me bike on Craigs List-Its name is Magenta Divine Free Spirit-once my in house bike mechanic visits it will be in tip top shape! ( My son cracked up at that name-can you imagine?) I saw the color and said sold! Here are also some pictures of my classes.
Please check back as I have exciting news as to a fundraiser for Japan featuring my art and that of many other artists!
