love the whole post, love you and love that photo of all of us!


Michelle, I had so much fun at Artfest, and taking your class. I can't wait for next year! Maybe we can do a local Iron Artist?


The Iron Artist exercise sounds like a lot of fun! I love to take the bits & pieces I have left over from other projects and see what I can make of them. This could be a good exercise for the journal group. Thanks for sharing Artfest with us!


WOW!! I am so jealous! I am already scheming about how I can jet the moola to travel and go to the event next year!! So inspiring!


didn't make it to artfest this year but your pictures totally made me remember what it was like. Thanks for sharing!

did you do well?
did you get to shop at all?
and what made you think to make a face on your record? love that!
you are so pretty michelle...too cute in that hat!


intimidated?? oh.my.goodness. take a good look in the mirror and try to see what we all see. you are an amazingly creative artist who adds cheerful whimsy to every piece you touch. your art is happy and it makes all of us happy too.

p.s. hands down you rocked the iron artist competition.


you make me smile!
