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

A Cute Collage


I had alittle time tonight so I made this cabinet size card with a cabinet card image. I used tissue paper and encaustic wax and added some doo dads...

Grab bag swap

This is what everyone made for someone else in the grab bag swap. We all sent out fabrics to another gal and she had to make a quilt out of it. It was really alot of fun.

A Full of ART Weekend

THe girls in my Creative Chix group are really into these little dolls. Patti G. originally got the idea from Lesley Riley's site..She put her own twist on hers and taught us how to do them.. We all do them a bit differently. This is my first one. She was a blast to make.. I am definitely going to make more...



I had 2 swap pieces to get done.. One was the Cabinet Card valentine and the other is called the Cheesy Romance Novel piece.. So here they are.

A Valentine's Tribute to my husband Michael Krasinski

Today I wanted you to meet my husband, Mike. It is under 10 degrees here in Wisconsin and he just left to go to work. He is working outside restoring a barn. He loves his work and is very good at it. I am so proud of him. He takes on huge projects and works all by himself. A few years back he was in a local paper ( see the photo below). And just to show you what he is working on now you can see a before and almost after of the barn he is restoring in Richfield,Wisconsin. He is a wonderful person that I'm happy to have for my husband.
