2. i got an email from lindsay. unfortunately, she won’t be able to make it to artfest this year and is looking to sell her spot (she’s got three amazing workshops that she’s registered for). this is a great opportunity to take the leap and go to this sold out art retreat! if you’re interested i n purchasing her spot, send her an email at linzbrackeen [!at] yahoo.com.
3. i found a great heart:
