Off To Play


I haven't done much in the way of art this week because it seemed like a good time for a major studio cleaning and reorganization. Over the years, the little corner of the basement that I call my studio has just exploded with stuff...so much stuff that there is barely any room to actually make art. The job isn't finished, but it's getting there.

Now it's time to take a break and go off to play for the weekend. A few of us are gathering at the home of a friend to enjoy four fabulous days of friendship and fun. We're having an art retreat--aka a grown up sleepover--just for the purpose of making art. We're going to make our own paper, journals, and beads, play with polymer clay, take a few field trips, and generally hang out and play like kids. I hope you find a little time to play this weekend too!
