haha! this makes me laugh because I was just thinking today, "it's been a month since Artfest, maybe I should do a post about it.." Glad I'm not the only one that like to take their time. :)

Hi, Michelle! I wish we had gotten to spend more time getting to know each other at Artfest! Your work is a constant inspiration to me and I have spent many happy hours perusing the archives of your blog. I so appreciate your comment on "Rod's Pennies of Wisdom" on my blog. I can't wait to see what you do next!
