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

Door County

My kids and my mom ( who is 80) and I went to Door county for a few days... We had a really good time.. but, now I need a vacation... Ha!! We had a nice little cottage on the bay side of the lake and the sunset was incredible..We had a fish boil and it was dddddeeeellliiiccciiiooouuuussss!!!!! I can't wait to go back there. It was very romantic.. maybe I can talk my husband into going... or at least my designated significant other... Ha!!!


TODAY was a great day.. I finished the quilting on my Hoffman Challenge piece and I made a couple fabric postcards for swaps... here is one of them... IT is going to France..

A rough weekend for our pets..

Last week Fatty was out and got bit by another animal.. by Sunday his face was swollen up with an abcess so big.. I called the vet and she said to bring him in on Monday. His whole side of his face had no hair on it and was huge.. Around 10 pm Sunday night I had to call her again. Mr. Snuggles jumped out of my daughters arms and did not land well on the floor. I figured he broke his leg.. and I was right.. We cried so hard.. Both cats went to the vet on Monday morning.. and now they are home.. I took photos... I feel so bad for both of them.. they really had a bad time...
