Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

No Chook update cos I abandoned them this weekend.

Just home from a fabulous weekend with the Best Ones and visiting the Best Crafty Ones (well not all the best but a few of them) at the Craft Barn Extravaganza this weekend. What a joy to be able to watch so many talented people demo all in one place. If you have never been to The Craft Barn and you love craft shops then this is a must!

Loads of demos going on, including ones from the lovely Suze Weinberg, who is as bubbly and entertaining in the flesh as she is on her Blog (and who keeps telling me she is 60 something - methinks she fibs!) and Lin Brown, who you can never tire of watching and the very talented Leandra of Paperartsy and the lovely Isabelle Norris who I have followed on her blog and in Craft Stamper for ages. Loads of other people, sadly we didn't have time to stop by and watch everyone- next time I will go both days!
It was brilliant to meet up with some old forum friends (not old old you understand!) and I was thrilled that someone stopped me and said 'are you Nicks?' and it turned out to be Lucy Edmondson, who some of you will know from her numerous features in Craft Stamper, but is also a fellow member of The Altered Element Design Team - Hi Lucy was lovely to meet you at last!

A great weekend - I can't wait till next year!
