Create Something Together

I went to see the Blue Man Group perform recently.
The opening screen before the show starts displays the following quote......

“When you first meet people from a foreign culture, a great way to break the ice is to offer a few gifts as a gesture of friendship. It’s always good to choose items that reflect your personal interests, and it’s even better if it’s something you have created yourself. You also need to show a genuine curiosity in their interests and their culture. But ultimately, the very best way to forge a lasting friendship is to create something together: Whether it’s a meal, an art project or just a spontaneous dance party, when you create something with others, you build a connection that lasts a lifetime.”

ArtFest 2011

It seems time flies by and it has been one year since I last posted on my blog. The 12th anniversary ArtFest is about to happen April 6 to 10 at Fort Worden in Port Townsend, WA. and I am going!!!

The theme this year is "Nourishing Creative Growth"

I have made my trades...

24 glass bird & egg charms on a ball chain for my dorm mates & special friends,

70 glass egg charms and square business cards for everyone else,

and some bird & egg charms for my trade charm necklace
(where I will display the charm trades I receive)

So now.... my bags are packed ... I'm ready to go ... I'm leaving on a jet plane ... bound for ArtFest!
