I am home from my annual trip to the Artful Gathering. This is an art retreat that is organized for one of the online art groups that I am active in. It is four great days of primarily doing altered art (and attending a stamp convention). We do lots of art, eat, laugh, get to know each other better ... just have a wonderful time. I think we had 21 attendees this year. They came from all over the country. I am so lucky to be a part of this group and to do art with such talented women.
The theme for this years Artful Gathering was "Spirit of the West". Our main project was a bound western/cowgirl book. I will be posting photos of my finished book in the next couple of days, along with photos of other projects.
I also recieved my round robin altered book. I have art by three other artists in my book. I will be getting that photographed and posted soon also.
I am also thrilled that I have my sister-in-law and nephew visiting us for a few weeks. I couldn't ask for anything better!!! What a treat for us. My nephew is growing up so quickly, but is really a nice young man. I'm very proud of him. He has been having fun swimming, playing with the dog, playing Guitar Hero, and watching movies. He's played basketball at the gym with his uncle, and also gone golfing with him. I think he favorite part is driving the golf cart.
I'll be back soon with photos of all that I have been working on.
