ArtFest bound

AForbust

Its the 11th hour.. I have most of my art supplies packed (MUCH lighter list than my AF trip last year) and I have my suitcase out and I have clothes piled in it along with a very small stuffed dog and a wind up dolphin.. who knows, maybe I will need it??!! I imagine my suitcase will hold many other unusual things by the time I am ready to leave.

I have finally thrown in the towel in my quest to make some "special" trades for my gal pals at ArtFest. I figure I can always MAIL stuff when I get home. I spent this evening sticking labels on the back of the ATCs I did finish and I packed the few I didn't to work on in Art Asylum.

I have done nearly all my laundry and am happy to hear that the forecast for the week is sun in Port Townsend. I know it won't be nearly as hot as it got at AFF but it will be nice to not FREEZE!!!

Overall, I am excited and nervous and anxious to be there and explore and learn and meet my blog friends and see old friends. I will take lots of pictures and give a recap when I get back. Until then, be good and leave a comment because I will be giving away some goodies when I get home!!

  2. I am SO HAPPY for you that you are going to Artfest!!! I am sure you will be recharging those batteries! Did your daughter put those "extras" in your suitcase?? My Dad told me that when I was little and he went away in the Navy I packed a pair of my socks in his suitcase and he did not find them until he was out at sea! Awwww!

    Have fun and I can't wait to hear all the stories!!!!!!!!!
