Women's Wellness Weekend - Fall 2014

This past weekend, I was invited to teach quilling on Orcas Island at Camp Orkila for Women's Wellness Weekend.

It is such an honor to keep getting asked to teach because this is one of my favorite jobs I do all year.
Women's Wellness Weekend - Fall 2014
I taught two quilling classes on Saturday and then had the rest of the weekend to...well...rest. I made some art, read some books, finished a People magazine from front to finish, did some yoga, learned some island history at Rosario Resort, and caught up with old friends. I created an album on my Facebook page to show student art.


It's nice to see some familiar roommates.


I made the bracelet, someone else the earrings, both from Shrinky Dinks.

Blue skies means sunshine means time to read on the beach and soak it up!

Orcas Island Bound for WWW

While you read this blog post, I'm on a ferry, travestying the Puget Sound, northern bound for Orcas Island.

I'm going to be teaching quilling at the YMCA's Women's Wellness Weekend. I've been doing this for several years now and highly encourage anyone to attend this special place.

In honor of the class, I've been spending the last few days making new, simple quilled earrings to show students.

Save the Dave - Homemade Harvest 2014

This morning I was waking up to a view outside my window of my dogwood tree leaves turning to a brilliant shade of red. Fall is definitely in the air. And with fall comes my annual Homemade Harvest Open House.
Homemade Harvest Open House 2014

Please save the date for November 8th from 12 to 6pm and join me at my home to support the handmade community. Kids are welcome to attend, there will be food served all day and you are sure to find a unique item to gift.  In turn, you'll be able to talk to the person who's hands made that item with love.

If you live in the Seattle/Eastside area and are interested in attending, please email me at ACraftyArab at gmail dot com.

And for my friends and fans who will be visiting again, I can't wait to see you!
