- 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

Fiber for a Cause Postcards
THese are the 2 postcards I received from Linda M. from the Houston show. She shopped for me.. I wanted southwest themed cards and she did a great job picking these out. The one on the left was made by Lorraine Strohkirch and the one on the right was made by Sherry Boram...
For those of you who are not familiar with Fiber for a Cause. We sent in fabric postcards and bought fabric postcards for the American Cancer Society. To make a long story short Virginia Spiegel worked very hard to raise this money.. She wanted to raise $100,00.00 but, she ( and her helpers, of which there were many) raised over $110,00.00. Each postcard was handmade by gals all over the world and were sold for $30.00 each. I saw the all the cards hanging in Chicago and it was amazing. I heard that Houston was incredible.
