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

International Quilt Festival in Houston

I have to say that this was one of the best trips I have ever taken.  I was happy and smiling all the time.  I would suggest everyone to experience this at least once in their lifetime.. I hope to go a few more times.  I wanted to share a photo of my quilt that was in the show.  I literally cried when I turned the corner and saw the quilt.  Thanks to Wendy Butler Berns for inviting me to be a part of her exhibit called "Out on a Limb'...

And then there was the loud pants luncheon... and yes with some help from a few friends I did make my pants..
