JournalFest in Pt Townsend, WA

And now ... a moment for a commercial break. 

OK! Who's going to Journalfest? I'm getting so excited to get back to the Pacific Northeast. Maybe it's that the landscape is so different from the East Coast? I feel like it's a magical otherworld out there. And it's really mossy there. Moss is the best stuff on earth (pun). Or could it be that Teesha Moore's art retreats are totally awesome and that Fort Worden is a great place to stay - no, not luxurious, a bit bare bones in fact. But the almost-camping atmosphere really adds something to the ambience. 
I will miss a week of my favorite October in Pennsylvania
If you are in the area, Teesha is accepting one-day class sign-ups so stop on by. I'm teaching Journal Spilling Layers, Rescue Book Journals and Colorwheel Journal Quilts. There is a great roster of classes and Port Townsend is a amazing place. 

Regular programming will now resume.

I would so so so love to go to Journalfest and to artfest!!! This had all started up in Port Townsend when we lived YAS LIVED in WA state back in the mid nineties. Back then I ahd a new born and afive year old. It was not till I ahd moved to the midwest that I started to get the info about these events. It really is some of the most beautiful country in the world and the green is so very very green!!! Youa re going to ahve a fabulous time !!! Perhaps when the kids are older and more settled, I can get away!!!

I found your site from Pumpkin Delight. I love it. I’m going to poke around a little bit, but don’t worry I’ll put everything back where I found it!!

I really wish I lived in the US! Journalfest should come to the UK!
