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

Finally some new art...

Hey... I'm finally creating a bit.. after being sick..having a sick son and having a sick daughter..Oh and a sick cat.. we are all almost healthy... Last weekend I didn't feel good enough to pack my sewing machine to take up north but, I took some beading along. I am making scissors fobs to sell at our quilt show. And a couple for gifts for friends.  The West Suburban Quilt Guild Show is March 19 and 20. The show is called The Art of Quilting. It was one of the first shows I think I ever went to when I first started quilting. I was blown away but, the talent. Now to think I will have some quilts in the show...that is kickass... We have over 200 quilts, vendors, antique quilt presentation, demos, appraisals, raffles and a gift boutique..where my scissors fobs will be for sale. There will be plenty of pin cushions from what I heard. I'm not too good at making little fabric items so I thought scissors fobs would be good.. Hope to see you there..
