Artfest 2011

Home from Artfest. I didn't take many pictures this time, but here are a few. Maybe you'll go next year?

I enjoyed eating my lunch on this picnic table, overlooking the water.

Working on my mixed-media prayer flags in Karen Michel's class.

Welcome to the Daydream Cafe! (part 2)

J AND M CAFE, SEATTLE Originally uploaded by ldh57

Welcome to the Daydream Cafe! It's good to see you again!


Do you need a moment with the menu?

No, I know exactly what I want.

[Pulls out pad and pen.] Great! What would you like?

I've been daydreaming about the artist who'll write the music for the film version of my unpublished novel. Kind of like Simon and Garfunkel and The Graduate?

Ah, dreaming big today!

Yeah. Is that okay?

Of course! It's your daydream. So, who were you thinking about?

This is kind of embarrassing, but I've daydreaming about P!nk writing entirely original songs for my book.

Hey! Don't be embarrassed. There's nothing wrong with dreaming big.

Okay, then. I'll take the soundtrack by P!nk. And that will be all for today.

Welcome to the Daydream Cafe!

Acera Café, París Originally uploaded by pasalolaraj

Welcome to the Daydream Cafe! I'm your server. Care to hear about our special?

Yes, please.

Today's special consists of a heaping serving of the authors who are going to blurb your currently unpublished novel. We have quite a selection to choose from today.

Someone told me you had Robin McKinley on the menu; is she still available?

The author of Beauty and The Hero and the Crown and The Blue Sword?

Yes, and Sunshine too.

You're in luck! I believe there is only one more Robin McKinley back in the Daydream kitchen. She's been a popular one today.

Excellent! I'll take her then with a side serving of Kristin Cashore.

Nice choice! Would you like a Stephanie Meyer for dessert?

Mmm, not today, thanks. Maybe for the next novel.

Okay, we'll have that right up for you then!

All my ducks in a row for Artfest 2011

Just a few more days and I'll be off to Port Townsend, Washington for my 3rd year in a row. The little duckies with Shrinky Dink charms with this year's logo are my trades. They make me smile, and I hope they make others smile as well.

I've even made the piece above for the gallery this year. You dan't see it, but the little hearts are dangling on the nails. It makes me smile as well.

Oh, and I totally forgot to post yesterday that it was my 3 year blog birthday. Look for a bloggeriffic giveaway coming after I get home from Washington.
