Almost Ready for Nashville and North Carolina!

I have been home for 10 days since An Artful Journey happened.  If you remember I took Katie Kendrick's painting class.  I had never painted with mixed media and acrylics so the journey was a bit bumpy for me but I was pretty happy with my few paintings I finished.  Learned some good ways to let go and paint without trying hard to paint "correctly".  I don't have pics but perhaps soon I will find time to take some and post.

I got home and had to redirect my creativity back into my comfort zone of working with fabric and wearables.  I am designing a lot of new things for Art Is You Nashville to vend on Sat. April 6th.  I hope lots of people come by my booth to say hello.

Nuno felt wrist wraps, hand dyed ribbon, and cowgirl hats with bands and hand sewn flowers

Upcycled denim shirt with hand dyed doilies (can you see the rhinestones on the shirt?) and bib overalls with a vintage petticoat
After vending I am hoping to see a bit of Nashville since I've not been there.  On Sunday I will be driving to North Carolina to visit a dear friend for a few days.  I have been threatening to do this for years now and can hardly wait for the day to come!
