I really had no idea what to expect from my first Art & Soul when Elizabeth and I packed the car last Wednesday morning. I brought absolutely everything that I thought I might "need." I didn't use a tenth of the stuff I packed, but just having it there made me feel good.I am glad that I signed up for the Hampton "Fatbook." I was in the second book (only 28 pages), and I love the finished product. People amaze me with their ideas and interpretations! An ample motel-supplied breakfast fired me right through most lunch hours, but seven and a half hours still wasn't enough time to finish most projects -- at least for me. I think my favorite class was Michael de Meng's Morpheus Box, though mine (above) is far from finished.
I also loved my Nature Journal class with Tracie Lyn and Marilyn Huskamp, and I actually finished this project!Karen, e.b., and Jerri
Perhaps most of all I enjoyed the sense of community I shared in Hampton with old friends and new.

Many folks might look at our week of "art camp" as a vacation, but it was exhausting.
And what becomes of the "broken arted" after too much beer?
Toilet paper art. That's what.
