Now that the 6 month obligation for Third Friday Fling in the Springs is over I will be getting back to doing pieces of work that make more of a statement. We were putting out about 20 to 25 pieces of work for free each month, so we had to make quick and fun pieces. The jafa girls will be getting back to
Okay, they are just rather whimsical little things I like to do in the evenings when watching a movie on telly. I mention craftivism in the title because Sarah at The Eclipse Gallery blog brought the subject up and I realized I might be part of an ism movement LOL!
