There is a perennial sale at Pettiti's this weekend, so early this morning John and I were there. Regular readers know we redid our yard last year. We are very happy with it except annuals seem to be just a buffet for our local deer and rabbits. This means we had some empty spots where the delectable bits had been planted. I love visiting this garden center because they do such great display vignettes. I was a little disappointed on this trip, our first this year, because they were not as abundant as in the past. Maybe the economy has dictated that they stock less quantity and fewer varieties. AND they redid the same displays that they did last year. They are still clever and pretty, but the same.
Have you bought a copy of the newest Summer 2010 Art Journaling, just on newstands now? Ingrid Dijker's "Over the Edge" has been featured in this issue and lucky us. We have her here in person teaching us all the techniques for that project Friday, August 27th. She is also teaching two other workshops that weekend and there are some spaces still left in each of the three classes. When I saw the photos for "Over the Edge", I couldn't wait to try to do them myself. That is why I invited Ingrid to come here to Avon Lake (cleveland) and teach. Come join us. It is going to be wonderful.
