UAF (continued)

No real pictures from this trip, but it was a blast none the less.

Mom, dad, me and Nik took the journey down town for the Utah Arts Festival on Saturday. It was so much fun!! I love going to this every year, and I could totally go every day and just keep looking at all the fun stuff. I would probably talk myself out of a lot of money if I did though, so I limit it to one visit a year. I always want to buy something. And I feel a little jipped if I don't come away with a souvenir, so, thank you to the kids Art Garden where we made free 'birds on a steeek' so I could feel like I got something. Nik even made me a pipe cleaner butterfly that I love. It is in my purse.

Dad bought this great air brushed picture set of the famous jazz musician Miles Davis. He loves Miles. The artist was amazing. If you are familiar with masking (using a barrier like a stencil to make clean edges), he made 3 or 4 color pictures of celebrities using spray paint. We spent the longest time looking at those. I would have loved to have at least 3 of them. Nik found Frank Sinatra with the Rat Pack, Dave Matthews, and Bruce Lee. They were really amazing.

I saw lots of stained glass too. I always look at that stuff and think "I could totally do that if I had the space!!" And I could! But right now, space is not the only problem. I have been offered the use of several spaces if I wanted too, but with working full time, and feeling like crap half the time, it just isn't working out. I need to come up with a project I am passionate about, something that will seem worth it to get off the couch and do, even if I am not feeling my best. That would be great.

Has anyone else been to the Festival?

It was fun to go with you guys. I'm glad you are always willing to go. You'll feel good enough to do your stained glass soon.
