Thanks for the Great Arts Walk

 The Sweaterbear and I would like to thank all of those who came out to Olympia's Spring Arts Walk this past weekend. It was lovely to see all of the smiling faces and hear words of encouragement. I had a wonderful time and hope you did too. It was a beautiful weekend and a good show.

Spring Nests

These nests are made out of recycled scraps of cloth and clothes. There are bits of lace and ribbon, plastic bags, bells, beads and stones in them. The little birds are made and stuffed with scrap fabric. I like to call them wish nests. I have one where I put old fortune cookies and little pieces of paper with my hopes and dreams so they can incubate and come true.

These are the Kasters. Half cat half monster. If you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with. Personified.
