I love this post! We had so much fun, great shots and wonderful memories!


WOW sounds like a fabulous time! Those creations are fabulous.

I love that caricature Cathy did of you! She even got your rockin' trademark pigtails. :-)


I'm soooooo jealous! sitting here drooling all over myself admiring all the cool art...talk about sensory overload!

MT: I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you...keep training smart, and you'll conquer it no problem!



Sounds like a great time! Thanks for the report!

Michele Patrick

I too love to learn and probably do more learning than doing! ;) I think half the fun though is meeting all the wonderful people along the journey. Glad you had a good time... love the cigar boxes!


looks like a great time!!!

Let me know when you have tapered to 6 miles and I will run with you. I have been doing 4 (hips are starting to hurt a little).

Janne Robberstad

Hey, you really got it on camera how much fun it was. We look like we were having a blast. And we were!
Thanks so much for a great time together, both at Artfest, and at your home and your studio. I guess I´ll just have to come back to get my stamp :-)
