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 Day at the Zoo..

We are very lucky to have a wonderful zoo here in Milwaukee.  The kids asked me last week what I wanted to do for my birthday and I decided I wanted to go to the zoo... It was a beautiful day today.  Not tooo hot.. just perfect.  So I wanted to share some of the photos I took... and maybe you can guess which ones might end up being a quilt... :)  This last photo of the bears foot was actually the bear laying on his back in the water with his feet up.  So his head is behind the foot.
I took the photos with my Canon A720... Yesterday Mike bought me a Canon Rebel camera for me for my birthday.  I couldn't take it today because I have to learn how to use it.. I know I will love it and have to take another trip back to the zoo...

All your Zoo pictures would make a good quilt , I love the bear ,he looks like he is trying to smile.But the girraffe, Ram and zebra would be the best.Glad you got to go there for your birthday
