among us

  I know I have been quiet here of late.  
It is was not intentional.
Not one bit.
I do believe that inspiration sometimes can be like the ocean's tide.  
It is either in.
~or~
It is out.
 
Echo {Week 19} - Blur
(Please go here to see Chrysti's post and here to go see Susan's.)
Mine has been in.
Which by the way, can does travel faster than a speeding train.
I have been working on a couple of class proposals 
for 2011.
It pushes me 
beyond myself.
It is can be both addicting 
~and~
frustrating.
To see trust what lies just beyond what I see know,
and then to go with it.
 
"trust" 
 
At the same time, 
I have been am designing and preparing to sell my jewelry 
at Marburger Farm, with one of my friends,
Agnes Strauss
of 
Wilde Weedz.
 (Moo card designed by Diane Cook)
Agnes & her friend Carla, have their very own tent, 
"Tent W"
Agnes designs the most gorgeous dried arrangements and wreaths.  
She sells flowers, real bird, duck & emu eggs, peacock feathers, and so, so much more.  
Plus, her tent will be filled with beautiful antiques.
Marburger will be open September 28th ~ October 2nd.
It is one of the best shows during antique week.
This is such a wonderful opportunity, which I have known about for some time, 
but thought about not shared.
Do you remember the fast moving train I told you about earlier?
One more wonderful thing happened just this last Wednesday,
as four of us met to make art, for the very first time.  
We had a real organized make art day!
 Yes, we finally did it, after talking about it for(ever).
I am determined to continue meeting with this group of ladies each month, 
who have art on their minds as much as I do!
Our group consisted of:
Nancy Lawrence, of Nothing Ordinary Antiques & Oddities, Agnes, Carla, and I.  
We met at Agnes' house, and had the best time!  
Our logo picture (above) is one I took of Agnes' cat, Rowdy, who truly does live up to his name.
He was so much fun to watch,
as he tried to climb up a table right outside Agnes' back door.

Oh, yes...we had a great day!


(Moo Card Designed by Diane Cook)
All the Wilde Weedz photos were taken in Agnes' gardens.  
I can't tell you how much fun I had designing these moo cards for her.
Just because....

Oooh, Diane...thank you for the sneak peek in to your class ideas. I can imagine how much work (and love) go into creating these proposals.
Your art group is SUCH a wonderful idea...and just look at the logo image you created! Rowdy Art Sisters is a great name! Are we going to see you step into digital design soon? You could do it! :-)
