The 2008 Annual Garden Art Show at McMenamins Edgefield is July 22 & 23; 1 - 8 pm. The show features more than 70 talented artists spread throughout the beautiful grounds of historic Edgefield.
Rooted in Portland, Oregon, Cracked Pots sprouted in 1998... [and] are deeply committed to sustainable living and to reclaiming items headed to landfills by transforming them into whacky and wondrous works of garden ornamentation.
Many more Cracked Pots have since joined this nonprofit organization, collaborating with other groups in a ceaseless dedication to build stronger communities through grassroots, sustainable art projects. We exhibit the work of over 80 Northwest artists who are committed to making provocative art for the garden from recycled, reclaimed and reworked material.
My favorite is the little house. I'm a sucker for a little house.
So smart of you to check out what type of book you were picking before taking it home! I'd've been so excited about free books that I could feel good about repurposing that I'd have not noticed they were inappropriate for my purposes until I was sitting down to use them. Eek!
I just got back from a lovely potluck/picnic brunch with the girls and the wristlet mimiw made for me was a big hit! And this is a crowd of sewers and artists and people who sew as art and get paid for it, so... neener, neener, neener! pthghp!
Are you using the "close-up" or "macro" setting (if your camera has one)? With most digital cameras anything closer than 3-4 feet (about a meter+) is considered macro and the camera won't focus unless you use that setting. I had to replace my lost digital camera recently and partly because of craftstering I made sure to get own with a macro setting and boy am I glad.
cyndiq - Thanks! They are in my fridge right now and will be given tomorrow, but I'm planning to just go as-is with them. I don't know if she scrapbooks, but she does a lot of collage, so maybe she can use one or more of them that way. However she reuses/repurposes them is great by me. I don't think she's the type who would just throw them out, knowing that I made them for her.
