Art & Soul Portland was wonderful. It is about connection, learning and growing all rolled up into one. The scarf here is by the talented and lovely Lorrie Scott. She is a teacher and artist that I had the pleasure of rooming with this year. I also got to have first pick of her lovely items. The only problem was to narrow it down to just a couple of items. I have a wonderful blue one too and I can't tell you how many people comment on this scarf.
The image below was taken by Belinda Schneider...did't her 3D PMC house turn out cute? I took a felting class with Belinda a few years back and it was fun to have her in my class.
There was a little shopping in Portland. I toured Portland with art friend and student Deb, and we had a great time and found some wonderful items. A visit to the Clog Shop where last year I found some great turquoise Danskos...so this year I went with these warm orange/red shoes. Sad to say they are discontinuing this style.
Oh...this blue velvet album from vendor night. Sorry the picture isn't better, but I am sure it will be in many more photos in the future. As I was running back to my room after setting up for vendor night I saw this out of the corner of my eye and had to have it.
