My... Oh My, I can hardly believe it.. the time has arrived!!!!
I am leaving for Artfest on Monday. It has been a whole year of planning, dreaming, and creating. ALL of this for one UNFORGETTABLE week!
It seems difficult to adequately express the multitude of feelings I am having... excitment.. anticipation... joy... sincere gratitude. I will be seeing friends old and new, and spending time with like minds and hearts.
The last few days have been almost a blur of activities like shipping box... upon box for our class and vendor night, finishing all outstanding projects, washing and packing clothes, along with driving hither and yon checking off items from an endless list of errands... WHEW.
Yet, I would not take back one minute of it!
My flight from Kansas City to Seattle is 3 hours long, I use those moments, when I am confined to what seems to be an ever shrinking seat, to journal and reflect on the upcoming art filled days. Honestly, I am looking forward to those 3 hours. I think it will be the first time I have sat for that long since my trip home last year from ArtFiberfest in June.
Sadly, this must be my last post until I return. However, when I get home I will have a myriad of MARVELOUS stories and pictures to share!
So while I am away, I would like to leave you with a recent weekly Fiber Journal artwork I completed. The text is from a verse I penned in my 2007 Artfest journal. It seemed appropriate to also incorporate these words into my weekly art.
