Summer vacation has given me a new lease on life!  My first year of teaching was extremely stressful, and not having any time for art made it even more so.  But the last few weeks have been filled with creative energy and lots of TIME to make art, and I've never been happier.  This has taught me that I have to be more organized when school starts and stay organized through the school year so that I have time for art which really is my therapy.  How about you?  Don't you find that art heals your heart and soul? Hate that I've discovered this so late in life, but happy that I've discovered it!

Have finished two UFOs (Unfinished Objects) from my knitting basket - a luscious shawl in shades of copper and teal and a melon colored shawl made of ribbon with tons of fringe.  Have started a scarf of Lorna's Lace "Lion and Lamb" yarn - so yummy - and a denim colored shrug.  Have promised myself I will not buy any more yarn until I finish all my UFOs.  Yeah, right!

So here's what else I've  been up to:

These are from two online classes I've been taking through the "Artful Gathering" retreat.  Session 2 hasn't started yet and there are so many exciting classes to take.  You can go here to find out more and sign up!
