I'm excited to see everyone's prints! Although the weather looks questionable, it will be fun rain or shine!!

I'm glad that I got to stop by on friday! It looked like all the kids and teachers really appreciated the event and that the kids got enthused to art. That's something that will stick with them for life.

I had such a fun time at this event, and even that is an understatement. Such a fun, great environment, with wonderful people, working tremendously together for such a smooth process. I sure hope I can make it back for another sometime!

I wish I was able to go to this event. I bet every print came out some crisp once the steam roller had gone over it. Next year!
