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

Wow.. I did it...


I was so excited to see my journal quilt in the show. It was quite an accomplishment for me.. Now I have to get going on the Hoffman Challenge quilt I am working on... My dear friend Patti took a photo of me and my quilt for me. The show was really exciting and we took some good classes... I can't wait till next year now..

Finally some art!!!



I got home from the Chicago Quiltfest and was eager to dive into some art.. I started with a deco that I had had here way too long. I finished these pages and now I will send it off to the next artist to put their art in it..

I'm so behind...



I am so behind in everything.. I failed to post about our new adopted son... We got him from the ozaukee humane society... my daughter needed something to keep her busy and responsible. Here is a photo or 2 of Mr. Snuggles.

A trip to the Domes










I finally broke down and bought a new camera.. I love love love it.. I had to go and try it out at the Milwaukee Domes.
(http://www.county.milwaukee.gov/MitchellParkConserva10116.htm) They have beautiful flowers in one of the domes.. Arid cactus and such in another and then a rain forest type dome.. it was really beautiful.. I hadn't been there for years and I forgot how neat of a place it is..
