Last week the East and West divisions of Dan Springs Collection (that’s my sister and me!) gathered in California for an art retreat. In addition to various art projects, we attended the Long Beach Quilt Festival and spent a couple hours at the Make It University Open Studios talking with Festival attendees about our dolls, creatures, journals and handmade books. Such a treat to spend time together, create art, talk with great people, and prowl the Quilt Festival exhibits and vendors!
As a full time high school art teacher and masters student, Donna brings to our Dan Springs Collection fresh ideas, an artful outlook, and playful inspirations – essential components of any succesfful creative endevor. Spending the week with her was a rejuvenating resilience rehabilitation for me.
This Saturday – the Purple Dragon and I do South of the James! Be there!
