Got Art?

This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend Artistic Affaire L'Automne, hosted by the wonderful Kim Caldwell! I can't say enough about how fabulous and inspiring these events are for me! At one time I was just a lonely crafter, making little creations at my cramped kitchen table in my 700 sq. ft apartment. Since attending her events, I have found so many other amazing women who share the same passions as me, get equally as excited about a yard of aged vintage lace, and will do anything to escape the day-to-day rigor for a weekend getaway of crafting!! I will post more about the projects later this week. However, I can tell you that the day was filled with a beautiful atmosphere....

sweet friends...... (here I am with the very talented Holly, who also sold some beautiful handmade pieces at the Market Soiree)
and fabulously fun swaps!! Jessi was my swap partner for the Soul Inspired Canvas Swap and I absolutely LOVE the piece she made for me....just perfect!!! Thanks, Jessi!!! This picture doesn't quite do it justice so I will post a close-up tomorrow.
I am re-inspired with new ideas and techniques and ready to go forth and create!!!! See you tomorrow for some more highlights!!
