NOW, JOIN OUR AUGUST CHALLENGE - AND OF COURSE, ANYTHING GOES!!!

AUGUST - TWIXT SUMMER AND FALL

One of my very favorite months - August.  I love the inbetween-ness (is there a word like that?) of the sweet fragrance of fall and that last bit of extra summer warmth.  It leaves me a little bit of time yet for my love for my crafting.

This month we are sponsored by that ONE AND ONLY:

 
Designer of over 100 theatrical productions, Rick St Dennis (Donald McAfee) is also the author of 4 books on decorative painting and contributor to at least a dozen national magazines on crafts and art. He has taught design at the college level as well as seminars and classes across the USA and Canada. 

Thank you for all of your wonderful entries last month.  We're all looking forward to seeing your wonderful ANYTHING GOES creations this month.

From our Design Team Members, here we go with our beauties!
