here comes the excitemment again

OMG...I can't even tell you how excited I get at this time every year when all the Artfest proposals come pouring in...and I mean POURING in. It's a good thing actually that I get so many to choose from but the downside is having to tell folks they didn't make it in. But back to the fun part...There are some seriously crazy good workshops that have been submitted and it always renews my passion in all the planning aspects of this behemouth of a retreat! LOL. The deadline is monday so we still have some time, but I have been getting a head start on the process because of the sheer volume. Let me tell you...Artfest 2009 will be slammin' good. I hate to tease you with this when you still have to wait until the end of july to see the delights that await...but I had to say something because I am just SO EXCITED!

The above 2 journal pages are frozen right now...meaning I can't finish them off because I actually like a page for a change! LOL...I am in that stage of feeling like I will ruin it. BAD place to be in for art. So I figure before I ruin it, I will post it here. LOL. The empty spaces are bugging me and yet...not sure what to do in them...

anyhoo...back to the proposal pile...


  1. I love it just the way it is. Thanks for showing us. Maybe now that you have a record of it, it will be easier to add to. :)

  2. I love the page. I am very excited to see what workshops pop up this year. Last year was my best artfest yet! I know you can top it :)
    PS don't forget to look me up if you come to Ithaca in August.

  3. Now that I am in the Northwest I am so happy to be closer to Artfest. I may actually be able to go this year!! So glad you updated the really inspire me!

    Yay! Just when I was missing all the creative souls at Artfest '08, something to bring me back :)

    Your page is awesome, by the way! They are all fabulous! Ruin it? naw....just creative journeys and lessons...

  5. As soon as your spread popped up on my computer screen, I said, "ooooooh!" I think the empty spaces are lovely. Sometimes we need empty spaces to let some air in (in life and in art.)

    I don't know much about artfest because I just recently found you here, but I am looking forward to learning more.

    I am untrained and struggling to find my voice in my work. I spend each day thinking about art but actually find little time to create. I have begun checking a few blogs of artists I love (Tim Holtz, Michelle Ward, Claudine Helmuth, Jenny Doh) and I stumbled on your site and must tell you I am blown away. Your work excites me in a way that few other artists do and your very meticulously cared for website is just pure eye candy. I could spend hours just touring your work. I ordered your magazine after reading this blog post because even though you consider it unfinished it takes me breath away. Thanks for sharing it and I can't wait for my first issue.

  7. Wow, Teesha! You have really been blog busy lately. Thanks for all the posts. I'll see you in Carson in July!

  8. I love the pages just as they are. Then realized what was missing, her story. Who is she, what is she, where is she, what is she thinking, feeling? The pages are finished just as they are, but, if you must add to them maybe add her story in the empty spaces.
    I love your sight and your work! Your journals are so full of feeling it is sometimes overwhelming to see and other times so energizing. I love your journals, posts, artwork, blog, everything. Thank You so much for sharing yourself with the world.

  9. Leave the pages just as they are!
    They are so different, and exciting, like reading workshop proposals!!!

  10. I agree! Leave the empty spaces! The pages are just beautiful the way they are!
    If they keep calling to you, you'll know that they need you to add something more later.
    I Can't wait to hear about the Artfest 2009 workshops, I plan to go and it will be my first Artfest experience! (Shudderering with excitement!)

  11. Your journal pages are so much fun that you inspired me to try my own over at


  12. I loove your artwork and anything going on in Boston?

  13. leave it! i love the blank spots. seems mysterious that way.

  14. What to do with the empty spaces you ask? Why, journaling of course! (smiles) See you at the RSC in Carson next weekend.

  15. i cannot wait for artfest2009...
    i would really love the reappearance of those liitle journal that you sent with our confirmations in 2007..they were the best and i still pull mine out to look at!! just a thought, hope you and the rest of the moore family are getting to enjoy the summer...

  16. I have just found your site, via Joyously Becoming, and it is wonderful. I love your art, your colors and your imagination! Thanks for sharing...Roxanne

    I'm not sure exactly why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later and
    see if the problem still exists.
