gone for a week

I took this photo in our back yard as the sun was filtering through the trees. It was like this for maybe a minute or two and then gone. Anyway...I felt the need to let everyone know that we will be gone for a week from 8/7 to 8/14. we have rented a beach cabin in sequim where, when the tide comes in, it comes right up under the about right ON the beach. We'll be hiking around hurricane ridge, heading out to one of the most beautiful spots on the planet, Neah Bay (farthest northwestern tip of the united states) and soaking in the Sol Duc Hot Springs. The rest of the time we'll be building forts out on the Dungenous Spit out of driftwood and hunting for cool finds along the beach. Will take some pics and post them when we return.

no journalfest for awhile

since I have been getting quite a few inquiries into "journalfest", I thought I'd let everyone know that if it even happens it will probably be a very small retreat where Tracy and I will be teaching journal making and journal keeping. But it is still on the back burner and will have to stay there for a few months. I got into a pickle this summer and completely bit off more than I could chew and just finally had to say "NO MORE new projects for awhile!" I really want to devote my energy to artfest, artfiberfest and art & life. if I have time left over, I want to make art...I NEED to make art. I tend to let cats out of the bag while considering things and then I get myself into hot water when I change my mind. sorry about that. what you see is what you get, warts and all.
