Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

Alisa Burke You Me and the Sea Retreat
The You, Me and the Sea Retreat was held in Seaside, Oregon. Alisa Burke is one of my favorite artists and I was so fortunate to participate in this retreat. I suspect it will be one of many that I attend. The picture to the left is of a group of us at the U pub. (Located on U Ave of course!)
The picture below and to the left is of Patty and Amy. We shared a table and they are very talented. It was a pleasure to spend time with them.
