About Me

My photo
I was 53 in June. I feel like I'm 30. I live in Cold Cold Wisconsin. But, I love it here.. I found fabric and quilting about 8 years ago.. I fell in love with it.. I also enjoy paper art.. I'm not sure how I kept my sanity before I started doing art. I found rubber stamps about 10 years ago and have gone on to anything and everything.. I have been blessed with creative talents and love to express myself in art. I have 2 children .. one girl who is 15 and a boy who is 17. My husband and I love to hunt,canoe and just enjoy the outdoors together.. We all love the outdoors and go up to northern Wisconsin as often as possible. I'm a 14 year breast cancer survivor.. you can view more of my art at http://laurakrasinskiquilts.blogspot.com www.picturetrail.com/barngirl or my teaching, lecture and vending schedule here http://laurakrasinskisartontherun.blogspot.com

Weekend at Ricky's

I was lucky enough to spend a weekend with Ricky Tims... The first thing I learned from him was to tell your husband when you are quilting and he wants you to do something ... you say... "I CAIN'T I"M BIZZY".... I had to buy the Tshirt... It was a great 2 days.. he was so entertaining.. I would advise any of you who haven't seen him to go.. His 2 day seminar was outstanding.. I had to come home and try my first hand at a convergence quilt. I have had the book for a long time. Finally I had some time..So I will use this for the background of a quilt I'm working on. I came home with a great attitude and life is good.. He had a concert for us on Sat night which was really incredible.. I really enjoyed his music. His latest cd is awesome...
